We have no AC....none! We had to turn it off so that the 1+" thick layer of ice encompassing our compressor could melt before the repairman could check anything! Today it is 100F outside. So how there can be an inch or more of ice outside directly in the sunshine and this heat, I do not begin to understand!!
Right now at 7:30 in the evening it is 87 frigging degrees in here! We only have two ceiling fans, but the house has 11 rooms (that includes the baths and laundry room, but heck they need cooling too!!) Fans running, shades pulled, drapes closed, minimal lighting to reduce ambient heat. I'm wearing lightweight clothes and not many of them (just enough not to shock the repairman!) The Big Guy is sweating, I'm sweating, the repairman is sweating!
I would go take a nice tepid bath, except that I know it would feel worse when I got out (one just can't stay in a tub for hours!)
The compressor appears to be leaking freon. To repair, replace the freon, and all that goes with it will put a serious dent in the budget.
So now I'm hot, depressed, and broke. Ain't life grand?
