I was working on my car in my garage one day, and I heard a loud sound and a flash of light. The air conditioner had blown out for some reason, and I was worried that it would catch on fire. I immediately called a professional company to bring some workers over for AC repair in NYC. I had no idea how much time I had before something else would go wrong with the air conditioner. I turned it off to prevent anymore power from going to it. If a fire started in the garage, the amount of flammable items in there would have caused the entire house to burn down, and I wouldn’t have been able to stop it.
As soon as the workers came, they got right to work. They inspected the air conditioner for any mechanical problems and found that one of the capacitors had gone bad. These parts commonly break in air conditioners, but they don’t usually cause as much of a light show. The workers replaced the old capacitor with a new one and I turned the air conditioner back on. It was running perfectly again. The workers asked me if I wanted to keep the old capacitor, but I declined. I didn’t really need a souvenir to remind me of what could have gone wrong in my garage that day.
I got back to work on my car after the workers left. I was in the middle of changing the oil when the whole problem happened with the air conditioner. Once I was done, I cleaned myself off and took the car for a drive to make sure that it was running properly. Once I got back, I noticed that my house was ice cold. I had left the air conditioner on the whole time and forgot to turn it off. The funny thing is that it was the coldest my house had ever been. I guess the new capacitor that the workers installed was all it needed to work at maximum power.
