This is a hotel-style heating and cooling unit. That’s what heats and cools my apartment and yes—sometimes I feel like I’m living in a hotel. But I like hotels.
My old PTAC unit was working fine and I didn’t see any need to replace it. That’s what I told one of the maintenance guys installing the new one.
“Oh, this new one is really good,” the guy said. “It’s more efficient.”
“How so?” I replied.
“It’s all computerized,” he said. “It will control the temperature in your apartment much better.”
“Computerized, eh?” I said. “Just more to go wrong.”
I guess I was being negative. Or maybe being honest.
Can you guess the ending to this story? The new and improved PTAC unit isn’t working correctly, doesn’t cool down my apartment much at all. I’m gonna have to get those maintenance guys back out here to check it out.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I’ve said those words many times in my life and that’s what I’m going to tell these guys when they show up.
