Well, That Was Fun…

Not.

So, last night we send the kids upstairs to put on their jammies when Mischief comes running downstairs, crying.  “There’s a funny nooooooise!”  I sigh, but get up and go check it out.  Seems the air conditioning vent is making an odd noise.  I come back downstairs and alert Zan, not that there’s much he can do, but yanno.

He goes up and looks at it, and sees that one of the filters is being sucked up into the vent, so he pulls it down and settles it back into place.  Just when he thinks it’s fixed, the whole thing quits.

Yeah, and on one of the hottest days of the year, no less. 

The only GOOD news was that the outside unit (the expensive part) was still running.  I have never been so thankful for ANYTHING in my life than to hear that.  However, we spent a night without air.  When I went to bed at nine o’clock last night, it was still 109 degrees.  Fun. 

Amazingly enough, I slept better last night than I have in weeks.  Go figure.

Happily, Zan works for an electrical engineer who in turn does a lot of work with a particular HVAC company.  So, we got in touch with the kind gentleman and he sent someone over around noon.

Now, the only thing saving us from keeling over today has been the cloud cover.  It is currently 88 outside and just past 3:30 PM.  So, that’s outrageously cool for Vegas in August.  And I am thankful.   Oh yeah, and that breeze?  Heaven.

Back to my story…

After about two hours, we were rewarded with a new motor for our blower, some cool air and a bill for $475.  LOL  All in all, that’s very cheap and our inside source said that it would have normally run about $700.  So, you aren’t going to get any complaints out of me.  So, D and H?  I love you both.  Oh, and Mr. G, our tech, our cats thank you. :)
