Is the heat on?
Ok so it is week one of our first summer in Scottsdale. I am learning a few new things each day.
Like today I hear the A/C go on and then feel heat and smell what I think is the furnace. I go running to the thermostat, is the heat on? Nope. Ok maybe it was a fluke. Then it happens a couple more times during the day.
I finally go into Todd and say is something wrong with our A/C- why does it feel like the heat is going on. Do you feel that? Fortunately he does so I am not going nuts. Turns out when it’s over 100 outside the ducts and pipes can get a little warm so when the A/C goes on it has to pump all that hot air out before the cool air gets going. Makes sense doesn’t it.
Fortunately it only lasts for a minute or so, but it still catches me off guard each time the A/C kicks on.
Now on to getting my bum burned by the hot seat after leaving the car out in the sun for the afternoon…my neighbors are warning me of all the “hot” things to watch out for, but I am sure I will be learning by example this summer.
