Moving into a new home can be very exciting, but not so much when you wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, but then you stub your toe against the dresser because you are closing your eyes and you still have the old layout in your head.
Of all the mishaps that could happen to me, stubbing my toe would have been a much more bearable scenario than almost freezing to death at night.
If my numb toes and fingers were not enough indication of how cold it was, the number on the wireless thermostat was enough to tell me that the ac was on overdrive. Trying to fumble in the dark because I could not find the light switch was very frustrating, but I finally did. I tried to reset the temperature, but it was still not working, so I ended up switching off the air conditioner and letting the furnace/heater installation take over. By morning, the electric heating system had shut itself down. I could not help but blame myself for not having confirmed the state of the heater before I finalized things. I could not believe that I overlooked something as important as the heat and AC products. In the morning, I called the heating dealership and explained what was happening, and they sent an HVAC tech right away. He did the much-needed heating repair and also heater maintenance. The house had been in the market for a long time, and since the previous owners left, the HVAC service plan was neglected, leaving the boiler prone to dirt and other factors which stopped the heating floors from being functional. The furnace filter was all clogged up, and the heating industry would have been repulsed.
