I had to stay at an Airbnb for two months while working.
The owner had listed that it had an electric heat pump, but once I got there, I discovered that it was a ductless mini-split system. I didn’t know much about air conditioning, but my sister, who’s better traveled, had told me to ensure that whatever HVAC installation they had, to ensure that it would have new filters if I f. to stay healthy. The owner organized for an a/c worker from the local cooling corporation to ensure I had everything I needed to be assured that the house had adequate help with indoor comfort. I’m pretty social, so I interacted with the a/c professional who told me the actual name of the quality HVAC the house had. I also learned how to operate the digital thermostat according to the house rules set by the owner, who was keen on energy saving. While I wondered about the name mix-up, I was happy to have a working AC. My joy did not last long though something changed, and I could not reach the owner to report it as an emergency. I ended up calling the same cooling specialist who had come in to do the air conditioner service, and luckily he was available despite the hour. The random air conditioner tune-up showed that everything was okay with the unit but found a problem with the thermostat. I had not understood the instructions on handling it well and turned it lower than it would take to warm me up. That experience made me think that I would need to add a local indoor comfort business to my list of essential service providers close to anywhere I book to stay for work or pleasure.
