Summer break was so busy on the beach we couldn’t switch rooms or find another house nearby to stay in for the week
It was a great summer day and my buddy and I just got back from the beach with our girlfriends. We had ice cream, got sunburned and a few other things transpired on the sandy shores. We were pretty burnt by the sun, and it was a hot day. We had a two room condo on the main strip for the summer, and we rented it last year. The condo had an old heater from god knows when and an even older HVAC unit. This thing rattled when it turned on, made funny noises and it sometimes changed its own temperature setting. It was a mess, this air conditioner. We fiddled with the thing for a while and figured it needed a break. It turns out when I got back the next day the condo was hotter than outside, and I was puzzled. The HVAC unit broke early that morning, my friend said. He had called a repairman at 7 and 8 oclock to come and one came out finally at 3. He couldn’t quite fix it and said he would have to order a new unit for the room. Summer break was so busy on the beach we couldn’t switch rooms or find another house nearby to stay in for the week. We decided to sleep with the door open and use a fan to tough it out. Needless to say, we will have a better plan next summer for avoiding the summer heat. I’m bringing more sunblock, my own fan and learning how to fix an old and new HVAC unit maybe, that’s how hot it was!
