The thermostat takes two AA batteries and we had several extra in the drawer in the kitchen
My husband and I went to visit some friends last weekend and we left our two children home by themselves. They are 15 and 17 years old, and my husband and I knew that they were responsible enough to stay home alone. We gave them some money for pizza and snacks and we gave them a list of instructions. We told the kids that they could not have any parties, but they could each invite one friend to spend the weekend. Everyone was safe and secure in the house when my husband and I left for the weekend. Bright and early on Saturday morning, I woke up to a text message from my daughter. She was frantic because the AC wasn’t working. It was only 80 degrees outside, but she was worried about the AC. My husband decided to give her a call. Since the air conditioner wasn’t working at all, it seemed like the problem could be the thermostat. The first thing my husband told my daughter to do was check to see if the thermostat was still working. There was nothing on the screen, which indicated to me that the batteries could be dead. We told the kids to change the batteries. The thermostat takes two AA batteries and we had several extra in the drawer in the kitchen. As soon as my daughter put new batteries in the thermostat, the lights came on and she could see the temperature display. When the AC automatically kept on, all of our worries and fears were gone. The kids didn’t have any other problems throughout Saturday and Sunday.
