Miserable!


So I wake up this morning and it's 81 degrees in the house at 7:00 in the morning! UGHHHHH!!!!!!! The AC unit outside is not coming on at all!  This really sucks!  I called my home warranty company and they called around and found a company that is able to come out today.  Fingers crossed that they will be able to get it fixed!  I really don't know how people in Texas (or anywhere else) survived without AC. This is miserable and it's only going to get worse before it gets better!  On the bright side I will probably sweat off a bunch of calories today!  :)

UPDATE: The AC repair company came out and replaced the capacitor, but said that the unit is on it's last leg and will probably die within a week.  They recommended getting a new outside unit and upgrading to a better one (from a 10 seer to a 13 seer).  My home warranty company covers part of it and I would have to pay $2,000.  He said it would cut my electricity bills in half and help cool the house better.  So I think I'm going to go ahead and do that and they can come first thing Monday morning to install it.  The good news is they got it working and it's starting to cool down.  YAY!

  3. Oh man- I hope they come. Being without AC stinks. You can jump on a plane and hang at my house until it is fixed.

  4. You and I are having the opposite problem! I'm staying with my cousins and they like the AC so low that I have to step OUTSIDE to warm up. Hope it gets fixed for you soon dear!

  7. This reminds me of the time I was visiting an old boyfriend in Dallas. I was borrowing his car (bought in New England - had no AC in it) and could not really drive a stick shift. I just remember sweating and praying I would find any mall.
