Last year during one of the hottest summer months we have had in a while, me and my wife threw a pool party at our house. It was a pretty good time all together. There were lots of people here and we all had a real blast! But the downside was that there was some damage to our central heating and air conditioning system as a result of the pool party. You are probably thinking how is that possible? Well, there were some people who were splashing so much water around that it hit our central heating and air conditioning unit in the wrong places and got inside of it! It actually made the central heating and air conditioning system short out. It wasn’t like when it rains from a bad storm. Rain goes straight down unless you have a hurricane. The water splashing from the pool was getting all inside the central heating and air conditioning system unit! Had we known this was going to happen we would have put a tarp or something over the central heating and air conditioning system unit. The heating and cooling repair bill wasn’t too bad though. But it was something we had to get taken care of right away! With the heat as bad as it was, having no central air conditioning would have not been a good thing. We did have portable air conditioners. But those can only do so much to cool your home when it is this hot outside. Needless to say, next summer when we have our pool party we are putting a tarp on the HVAC unit!
