AC trapped behind fence

Figuring out a new household is pretty much a full time job, it turns out, then when you’re not fumbling around in the dark looking for light switched, you’re failing to operate the garbage disposal properly. That’s why it’s even more terrible to be staying at a new household only briefly! By the time you finally have all the quirks worked out, you’d better think it’s going to be time to pack up and hit the road again… I had just this experience over the past week while my buddy and I were staying at a rental household in the mountains! Everything was great… except for the indoor cooling system, and you see, try as my buddy and I might, my buddy and I could not get the central air conditioning system component to keep the household comfortably cool and dry. The first evening, my buddy and I easily set the bar too low. The air conditioning system was barely powered on, and the amount of cool air that it provided us was negligible. The household was continually hot and humid, and no one was able to sleep easily that evening as they boiled alive in bed. The next afternoon, my buddy and I decided my buddy and I were going to teach that cooling system a lesson and cranked the AC up all the way. Well, that worked. It felt easily beautifully cool and fresh inside… until the ventilation cut out. We figured it was a straight-forward problem, and the AC component just needed a quick fix. The problem was, my buddy and I couldn’t honestly find the cooling system in this big, foreign house! It was a whole extra evening of desperate heat and discomfort before my buddy and I found the AC unit; locked away behind a tall, decorative fence outside. We never did manage to get the indoor cooling system working again before checking out.
