My central air conditioning quit during the middle of a dinner get-together last summer, it was toward the end of June, and we’d had an especially hot season; The outdoor temperature was in the low nineties with high humidity and not a hint of a breeze! My partner and I invited a few of our neighbors over for the evening.
To make sure most people would think cool and comfortable, I’d lowered the thermostat by various degrees, then when the cooling system failed, the loft heated up easily suddenly.
I checked the thermostat and tried decreasing the batteries. My partner checked the breaker and replaced the air filter, other than that, neither one of us had a clue how to fix it, both of us aren’t handy people. Both of us figured it was worth paying extra and calling for emergency repair from a professional Heating in addition to A/C business. Both of us didn’t want our guests to be uncomfortable or live separate from air conditioning for the whole weekend. My one acquaintance then offered to go get his tools and take a look inside the cooling unit, but he seemed easily confident that he could handle the repairs. Hoping to save ourselves some time, money and aggravation, our partner and I agreed. Our acquaintance spent the next two hours taking apart the cooling unit. He removed a bunch of parts and made a lot of noise. It eventually became apparent that he had no system what he was doing. When he put the cooling system back together again, there were left over parts. The cooling system wouldn’t start up. Both of us finally called for emergency repairs and ended up paying a much larger bill due to all of our neighbor’s assistance. He’d managed to bend fan blades, break belts and cause all sorts of complications that needed to be fixed.
