A cold rain moved in this morning and the short walk to the truck chilled me to the bone. I cranked up the heater and by the time I got to the main road, my shoes were smoking.
My truck didn't come with all the bells and whistles, but it has a great stereo, air conditioner and heater. It's been my experience that as long as the vehicle is running and has those things it suits me just fine.
We've had thermostat issues at my house. About a month ago, I replaced an ancient thermostat at the house and it seemed to be working great! But a few days ago when it turned off warm, I bumped the air conditioning on and the house only got hotter. I checked the settings and where the digital readout had read 78 degrees a few moments before, it now read 85. Yikes. I quickly turned everything off and went for the instruction manual.
As it turns out, the thermostat I bought wasn't designed for heat pumps. Dang it man! So, I went back to the Home Depot and found one suitable for my unit.
When I read the quick start installation booklet, I realized quickly that I was in over my head. I spent several days trying to find someone who knows how to wire thermostats. Finally my brother-in-law and my nephew Haven agreed to wire it up but they were covered up until the weekend.
Thankfully it turned off a little cooler so we've made it through with our fireplace. I'll be glad to have the unit back in working order.
I hope you all have a great weekend.
