Looks like I’m going to have a new air conditioner installed on Tuesday. At this point it’s kind of up in the air, as I’m going to have to get my Mother to co-sign with me in order to get it done. She’s going to call over to the salesman and give her information to him tonight.
Do I want to do this? No. I most certainly do not. I really don’t have much choice in the matter at this point, though. My current unit continues to get worse on a daily basis. As it currently stands the circuit breaker is flipping off on a regular basis and we constantly wake up in the morning with the house being overly hot because the compressor is off. We also had no heat again this winter, and space heaters just don’t do the trick (not only are they kind of unsafe, they also have a tendency to overload fuses and make rooms entirely too hot or not hot enough).
Another monthly payment for the house approaches soon.
Edit Oh, and for those of you who don’t live in Florida and who might be thinking “Well, you don’t really NEED an air conditioner.” Yeah, you do. It’s damned near impossible to sleep down here in the middle of summer if you don’t have it. Heat you can live without. Life without an A/C, however, is damned miserable.
