    Default Air Conditioner Kaput?

    Ugh, woke up this morning to a humming sound, and the sound of air blowing from the vents, but it didn't feel cold, just air. I checked the thermostat and it said 25 degrees C, I always keep the temperature at a constant 23 degrees. I looked outside at my AC unit, and it was making a strange thumping sound, and the fan is not spinning. So I called our Heating and Air Conditioning Company, as we pay a monthly fee for a Protection fee on our equipment. Or So I Thought. They told me it only covers our Furnace, and not our AC Unit. When we signed up for the extra Protection Program, we were told it covered both. So now our AC isn't working, and we're not covered, so they want $89.00 for a service call fee, just to come out, plus any diagnostic fees to tell us what's wrong with it, plus any parts and installation fees, plus hourly labour costs. Did I say Ugh.

    Well that sucks. Do they have home warranties up there you can purchase? The ones down here you pay a yearly fee and then when you have a problem you only pay a service of like $50 to $100 for any covered problems even if they have to replace things.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Oh bummer… I'm sorry Monica, I hope that you can get it fixed soon. I swear things have been breaking down here on a daily basis lately… Lol

    That bites! Let me see if i remember Celsius to Fahrenheit...23 C x 9 = 207 /5 = 41.4 +32 = approx 73.4 F degrees. You keep you house pretty cool. Baltimore Gouge and Electric would charge me an arm and a leg for that. Nonetheless, I hope that your A/C gets fixed soon. @Marine91 provided some emergency measures to Amanda Peterson on 8/11/2014 if you are really in need of cooling. Please stay hydrated.

    Lol. I do keep my house pretty cool, I've had my air on since the end of May too. I told my hubby I was going to kill somebody if he didn't turn on the air ( Damn Menopause. Lol). I blamed it on the dogs, I said they were hot and needed the air on.

    Yep. That is exactly what my better half would do.
