“In addition to our normal tools, I need gloves to protect customers. Of course we need a face mask to make sure you interact with people as safely as possible,” said Koscielak. “We also wear floor mats. Every time we go to someone’s home, we make sure we cover my boots, and we also put a floor mat on someone’s front door.”
It turned out that the problem was just a tripped circuit breaker, possibly an overloaded circuit breaker, causing the air conditioner to work again.
Here is some advice from Service Champions. If your air conditioner blows warmer air or you hear a noise, you need to change the filter, which may need to be replaced. That in and of itself could make the device run better.
