I think because of experiencing the warmer weather in a house with essentially no air conditioning helped me oversleep this morning.
If that weren’t bad enough, I have angst that there may be something else wrong with the ITP Estate. A few weeks ago the smoke detector in the basement stairwell went off a few times. I replace the batteries twice a year, but this was an ancient smoke detector that was installed when I bought the house, so I simply replaced it. I had heard nothing since. That was until this morning when I swear that I heard a momementary buzz emit from the newly-installed smoke detector. Of course now I fear the worst especially since my inferior sense of smell will never be able to detect anything afoul.
The only thing “running” in the basement is the fan unit for the air conditioner. What should I do? Replace the air filter again (the next scheduled replacement is 7/1)? Call an electrician? Nothing, assuming I don’t hear it buzz again?
There is one possible non-electrical explanation – dust. I have never had my ductwork cleaned, and over the years some of the suspended ceiling tiles have fallen out, allowing exposure to the ductwork and its insulation. On of the vents, and one of these openings is not far from the location of the smoke detector in question.
These are the things that make me hate being a homeowner.
Hope your Wednesday has had a better start than mine.
