Where's the Air?

My A/C broke down some time last night. I started noticing that it was humid around 10pm but figured it had cooled off enough outside so that the unit wasn't coming on very often. No such luck. Around 11pm I dropped the temp on the thermostat and nothing happened. Tried the manual control on the fan. Nada. Now it's around 84f in here at 1am and that's not nice.

Tomorrow after work I'll try the circuit breaker out on the electrical panel and if that doesn't work then the two breakers that I know about on the part of the A/C unit under the house. If that doesn't do the trick---then I guess I'll have to wait a while. Holiday weekend now and this is the busy time of year anyhow... I'll be lucky to get a repairman here by next Thursday. After having been without A/C for a week, I bet I'll be very glad to have it once more.

Maybe this would be a good time to visit the area where I grew up. This time of year they have temps around 65-70 as their high of the day. Vera, vera nice. Of course their overnight lows in the 40s aren't so nice...

UPDATE: As of 4pm I once again have A/C. Julie came to the rescue, partially cause she can't stand hot temps, and got a fellow to come fix my unit. It turned out to be the board that controls the internal fan. Apparently the A/C was working but the air just wasn't circulating. And now it is.

If only you knew somebody in the HVAC business.

Truly. Most of the people I know only play with computers in air conditioned offices. Users not repairers. *sigh*

I want to go where you grew up...where is it.....tell me. I do not like living in a house without air.....my sympathy.

This might be a good time to look into a maintenance contract... it is about $200 or so a year and they come out twice a year and check your whole system... heat in the winter and cooling in the summer and make sure all the fluids are intact and that it is running right... and you get a discount on parts and labor if it breaks down.

What I wouldn't do for AC right now...I don't think England has EVER been this hot. Not that I'm complaining...I love it, I just can't sleep!
