So... I did the first ever set up of the new A/C and I'm very happy. It's way more simple to do and the profile is way nicer - cleaner and sleeker looking. Here's what it looked like in previous years with the cat door next to year with the swim noodle.
I had the door closed for a while during set up so I could check stuff and it got really hot in here. So I opened the door back up and turned on the air conditioner. In less than 5 minutes it went from 83 degrees to 78 degrees. SWEET!!! I turned it off and it took less than 5 minutes to get back up to 83. Hmmmm Maybe it really is hot in here! I love seeing the current temp and having all the controls on my phone.
Edit: A/C off now and I just realized I have on a long sleeved shirt - could be contributing to heat ... doh.
