We came back from our very nice visit with our kids back in Ohio and found a central air conditioning system that didn't want to cool.
Since we've had to have tiny leaks fixed and a freon charge done three years ago we weren't surprised. Just sad thinking it could cost a ton. Or three, since our system is a 3-ton. Turns out that our technician now had a new weapon to seal leaks, but the increase in cost for the no-longer-made older freon still made it cost $275. Basically the cost of 3 nights in a cool hotel room.
With temps in the upper 80s yesterday, it was money well-spent.
AND, true to form, the weather has now taken a change. We'll be having moderating temps and dryer weather through the weekend. *sigh* At least we'll save on the electricity costs, only to start using the A/C again by Monday. At least it will work!
