Recently, I thought it would be nice to have a device free night with my family. It seems that everybody is always on their phones or their tablets or even on the PC. Well, it was enough of that! We had to spend some quality time as a family. So on the day when we all put our devices in the basket, I said that nobody would be allowed to touch their phones. We were having an alright time, first we all watched a movie together. It was really comfortable too because the cooling system was working superbly. We just had the cooling system tuned up before the summer season, so we were really able to enjoy the cooling air. It was a different kind of experience when the kids paid their whole attention to the movie and we were able to enjoy this time as a family. Well, then something happened, the cooling system failed. At least we already watched the entire movie so that went well. Of course I had to grab my phone to call the HVAC company to repair our cooling system. When the HVAC technician got there, he laughed when he discovered the problem. Evidently, the batteries died in the thermostat. The rest of the HVAC system was just fine! I thought it was odd for the HVAC system to fail since we did get our regular HVAC system maintenance taken care of. I didn’t think to check the thermostat batteries though. We had the batteries replaced and then we were back to our device-free day! We played some charades and some board games.
