Summer was right around the corner, and we were all excited.
Winter had been brutal, and everyone longed to soak in the sun.
Mom and dad were going on vacation, leaving me in charge at home. It was a huge responsibility, but I was ready for the challenge. Before they left, dad decided to call the HVAC technician to our house. He’d check why the AC was making a loud buzzing noise. The air conditioning mechanic informed my parents that the device was on its last days. It was leaking freon and wouldn’t last the summer. It was too late to start order and install a quality HVAC. So the next option was to get a multi-zone mini-split. That would keep the house cool for the duration of their trip. The HVAC service had excellent options on offer, which got my parents excited. They placed an order, and the mini-split HVAC arrived the next day. Dad got to work installing it without needing an AC expert on sight. Ductless air conditioners didn’t require much work to install. It was a diverse unit that could also heat the house. But, we only needed it for the time being to cool the house. Mum promised to get in touch with the AC service as soon as they were back. In the meantime, the mini-split ACs would keep us comfortable. It was a wall-mounted ductless aircon with top features like a dehumidifier and air purifier. I learned how to operate the thermostat settings fast, which was essential to keep the temperatures controlled. We had lots of house plants that weren’t big fans of extreme heat. Neither were my siblings, and they’d made that quite clear. A week into their trip, we called our parents to inform them the ductless HVAC was working okay.
