That's right it's the compressor.
They should have one come in soon, so only a few more sweltering nights. Maybe it'll rain tonight and cool things down....

Yes I have 2, one is in the master b/r and the larger one is in the living rm/tv rm/dining rm/kitchen area. They help but they aren't central air. It's down to about 77 in here now.
Storms are expected so that'll help with the temp, but the humidity will be a bear.

Makes ya miss living up North doesn't it?

Seriously though, my sympathies. Nothing worse than crappy sleep from it being too hot. We always have a few nights like that before it settles into being hot for the summer and we get the AC in. We've already had two nights like that, then it got cold again.

Yeah I didn't have a/c in Canada with the exception of the last 4 years I lived there, not even in my car.

Doesn't look like we'll be getting rain tonight, maybe tomorrow.It all went south and east.

LOL, so everywhere you need to go has ac, except the bathroom!

Spoiled!

well, to tell the truth we did have the ac on until the room cooled down last night. It was way colder out than inside the house.

Hasn't been so much the heat here as it's been the dew point. Too sticky.

Nooooo.

Best interview ever.

Never really liked the books, but he seemed great.

I guess he doesn't have to worry about ebooks anymore.


Proof it was the best interview in the history of interviews, The NY Times agree!
http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/05/08/on-e-books-and-stephen-colbert-a-few-words-with-sendak/

Here is the interview. Parts one and two. Gotta watch to the very end. The ebook part is the last few seconds of interview two.
Part one, 7 minutes

Colbert: Murice, what do you think about ebooks?


Sendak, pumping his fist in anger.

F--- them is what I say. I hate those ebooks.
They can not be the future.
They may well be.
I will be dead.
I won't give a s--t.

This is a new unit too, right?

Geeze, when we bought the house, the general thought was if you were redoing the kitchen, and the appliances are more than 5 years old, get new.

At that time 5 seemed new, compared to what our parents had.
Hell, my mother in law has the refrigerator that come with the house in the basement. Still running. 1958

Now we have had the service guys for stuff that is brand new.

The 2 year old ac units don't take the humidity out of the air.
One problem with the old units was the pan would fill with water and smell.
No smell with these. No water in the pan.

So much for being productive this morning. At least I can work tonight if I don't get another migraine. Something has been triggering them in the evenings and I haven't found it yet.

1) Your units are oversized for the heat load. They don't run long enough to take out the humidity, leaving your house cold and clammy (no comments on the occupants)
2) The pan needs to drain to the outside. You probably had the drain line full of gookus, leading to backup.


ETA: I just passed on a house purchase because the AC units were 22 years old and I don't have $20k to replace them.

Yeah, we have a window unit that's bigger than the room, but it's also the only AC in the place. Luckily humidity isn't as much of an issue here.

We really need to replace the windows in the living room (now that we fixed the walls and painted, uggh. But windows are expensive and don't add to the home value so we've been avoiding it. //sigh
