It's Hot in Here

July 8th, 2010 at 06:36 am

I live in Pa and if you've been following the news you'll know that we are on a little bit of a heat wave. We've hit the high 90's for the past three days. Today it's suppose to hit 95. So what's that mean.......air conditioner goes on the fritz.

Yesterday I called my better half to see how she was doing. Of course her response was miserable. She has a broken foot and said something was wrong with the air. It had been running all day but the house wasn't very cool. Okay, I'll look at it when I come home from work.

She was right, something is def wrong. I set the temp at 75 and went outside to work. Two hours later I returned to find the temp did not go down inside but went up to 81. What the hell!!!!!

Today I have a guy coming to look at the unit. It'll cost me around $69 for him to come look. Hopefully she just needs a tune up and no major fix.

I received some monies from selling my DVD collection so that'll go towards the cost of the air conditioner. That EF fund sure is helping. Too bad it's pretty much depleted being that last month we had a plumbing mishap.

    That happened to me too - home got warmer instead of cooler. At first the AC will pump in cool air but after two hours it stops blowing in cool air and just blew in regular air, which is warm air from outside and hence why the home got warmer.

    At first the AC guy thought my drain tray was blocked, which would send a signal to the AC unit to quit the cold air but continue to fan in air. Hopefully that is all what is wrong with your AC unit. In my case, it turns out there was too much coolant/refrigerant in my AC unit and that was doing the blocking. Apparently another AC guy serviced the wrong AC unit and put the coolant into my unit so I had to pay $200 to my AC guy to fix some other person's mistake! Grrrrrrr....

    Ah, the joys of home ownership. It leads to satisfaction and headaches all at once. We just found out that our back fence fell down, and we need to get it fixed before we can rent the place to new tenants. Yikes! We are living overseas so we have no insurance of hearing about these things as they happen... I hope your AC is fixed soon, what a pain!
