I chose late August to hit the West Coast regions thinking the worst of the heat was behind me. Booked day trips to discover our nations great outdoors. 17 glorious days of late summer temperate perfection. Spent most of my time indoors as daytime highs screamed above 108 while the AC in the hotel room just laughed and said, “You think THAT’S BAD?” and soon began huffing and straining to cool things down to a mere 103. Let me just say, there were no kicks on route 66 during THAT vacation. The air conditioner was possessed by a blazing furnace. I think the Inn Keepers Law should mandate that any HVAC system in a hotel room be precisely tuned to a no-foul channel. When I turn on the air conditioner, I don’t want to have to risk getting frostbite or heat stroke. Same goes when choosing a HVAC business to trust your cooling, heating, conditioning and furnace service with. Your house isn’t a hotel that operates to please the thousands of visitors and installs measures to keep inquisitive guests from tinkering with thermostats in efforts to break some sort of DaVinci code. Stick to the pros, through heat and snow. Heater installations are just as important to those regions that count on a 68 degree or higher warmth from their furnace so why should winter travelling be any different in hotel rooms? Single pane windows that let in sub temps are normal and the heater installation is always under a window so a hotel heating and cooling unit is constantly put to the ultimate test. I am not sure what the scheduled maintenance is on some HVAC units, but I would wager the air conditioner repair and furnace service HVAC technicians are busier than bees at a July honeycomb festival.
