Here in the Northeast, we are having a heat wave. While G-man and I are from the south and really don't know what everyone is complaining about....we will concede that inside our house it is an oven. The other night, at 11pm, the house was reading 90 degrees. Not ideal sleeping temps!
We have a larger (10000 BTU) window a/c downstairs, and smaller units in the bedrooms. We considered getting another larger unit to cool the entire upstairs. But it wasn't in the budget, so we said we will consider it for another year.
Last night, Bossy's a/c decided to blow hot air. Perfect! I bunked him in with Sassy (and when I checked on them later, they both had fallen asleep in her bed). But that was a temp fix.
The knee jerk reaction was "we need to buy a new a/c." I really didn't want to....I said let's make the kids share a room for the summer. G-man thought that was a bad idea. We toyed with buying the large unit.....but I wasn't all in for spending that money either.
Well, we figured out the problem....something with the thermostat. The unit is 15 years old, and doesn't work great....but at least it is better than nothing. I am hoping to snag a new one on clearance at the end of the season.
