The irony of almost being frozen to death by our air conditioner

It was a Friday evening and I had invited my girlfriends for a sleepover.

We were to watch the last episode of our favorite show as it had come to an end.

We were to later eat and then play a few indoor board games then sleep. It had been such a good week. Two of my friends had started a company together and I had been promoted to senior air conditioning professional at the air conditioning company I worked at. More than just screening the last episode of our show, we were also celebrating. The summer was at its peak but my very capable central air conditioner did not disappoint. This is the best it had behaved in the last several months. A few weeks ago, the climate control had malfunctioned which had forced me to order a new digital thermostat from the air conditioning business downtown. My air conditioner was not too old. The a/c setup had been done just 10years back. My friends arrived at the house at about half to seven as the screening was starting at seven. I had also recently changed the air conditioning filters all on my own, something that made me proud. The evening went great but we were woken up by freezing temperatures in the middle of the night. We had to switch off the unit and book an appointment with the a/c repairman. I hoped that we did not need a new air conditioning install. The a/c repairs helped revive the unit. The a/c service determined that the heat exchanger was burst causing the unit to release frozen air for prolonged periods. Frequent a/c care saved us the hustle of buying a new unit.
