I enjoy it when machines implement new safety features to reduce the option for injury or harm.
There are some saws that have to be held consistently or a sensor will shut off the blade.
My recent space oil furnace features a shut-off switch if it detects that the component is tipping over. And then there’s my washing component that stops plus tries to reorient my laundry whenever it gets off balance plus starts making a ton of noise. If the washer didn’t have this feature, I could lose use of it for days at a time if an unbalanced load causes the drum to get disfigured. These things are usually fixable, but it costs both cash plus time that I’m not in a position to spend. Similarly, I l acquired that several modern air conditioners have shut-off switches whenever the condensate line clogs plus starts to overflow. Naturally, algae plus microbial growth can create slow-growing clogs in an air conditioner’s condensate line. In an aged air conditioner, that water would flow back into the air conditioner plus you’d have water damage underneath your air handler. With the safety shut-off switch, the entire air conditioner becomes inoperable until an HVAC worker clears the condensate line plus resets the switch manually. This only takes my HVAC tech roughly an hour to do, plus then the air conditioner is back to working normally once again. After hearing from my step dad about the water damage he faced one year due to a condensate clog, I’m very happy about these new HVAC safety features.
