Careful What You Wish For
August 14, 2011 § Leave a comment
When the air conditioning unit decided to ice up in 100 degree weather on a Thursday evening, my first thought was “why does this not ever happen on a Monday or Tuesday?” Why must this always happen on a Thursday evening? Now my Friday morning will be spent trying to find an HVAC technician that can fix my system the same day I call. Weekend rates are never a good thing and suffering through a weekend without cool air in the house during a triple digit August is not the option I want. Fortunately, the planets aligned for me and I was able to coordinate a quick fix to the old unit.
On his way out the door, the HVAC guy warned that my old unit was on it’s last leg. I needed to start saving now for a replacement unit. No problem. In a week or two, I could get away with using the attic fan to cool the house.
Fast forward four days. It was a Tuesday evening. And I got my wish.
The HVAC guy will be here again on Friday to provide an estimate for replacing my existing heating and air conditioning unit.
