It’s easy to freeze your air conditioner coil if you’re not used to using the machine

My grandparents were staying with me recently while their condominium is being remodeled.

I have tried to accommodate them in any way I can, but sometimes they don’t always communicate their needs clearly.

Even so, it’s a joy to have them under my roof for a few weeks! I’ve been cooking homemade food on a daily basis while letting them rent movies on my smart TV through various apps. I wanted it to be a fun trip for them so they could release some of the stress that was built up from their move into a new home for the first time in decades. Not only does downsizing save on money, but it also prevents someone from living in a house with staircases that they can no longer ascend and descend once their body becomes disabled to a certain degree. That’s largely why my grandparents are moving into a small condominium. In the meantime, I have given them full access to the thermostat for my heating and cooling system. Unfortunately, the air quit getting colder going through the HVAC system at a random time yesterday afternoon. The thermostat was still on, but the temperature in the house was 80 degrees when it should have been 74. I called my heating and cooling supplier and they told me to turn it off for an hour and see if that would do the trick. He explained that the evaporator coil can freeze over with ice if you try to leave it on for too long with too much power. This happens when you drop the thermostat by five degrees or more all at once. I was happy that his suggestion worked, and he also scheduled a day to come out and inspect the heating and cooling system to make sure it has enough coolant.
