It's 105 here and it actually felt kind of cool when I went out to get lunch.

I'm the biggest wuss when it comes to A/C - if the one in my house quit, I'd drop the cash and move the family to a hotel for the duration I believe. Anyone without A/C in those temps is crazy. Y'all stay safe...


my pop was a heating/air man for 30 years, I worked for years building them, very few enjoy the A/C as much as I, but hell I'm practicing to become an indian again, even work in a indian casino

some days the heat is a bit draining, but hell it ain't totaly bad, it's not like I'm not doing any physical labor.

the other day when it rained a bit my living room felt like a sauna, so it was kinda like what I'd imagine going to a spa, get all sweaty then jump in a cold refreshing shower, put on some clean clothes, wet my shirt down and go for a ride, it's like a/c until my shirt dries.

one thing I really dislike about the whole deal is I put up picture frames with hot melt glue and the shit is melting, been coming to the house every evening finding pics laying on the floors.

as for the breachcloth, I'd have to skin several deer or one big buffalo to cover my fat ass.

I'm kind of hoping some of those jehova witnesses come around to the spread the word of God, I'm going to invite them in and everytime they go to leave I'm going to ask them another question that demands a long winded responce, I been reading the bible again in my spare time when I'm not cruising the boards here, so I think I can carry on a decent conversation, or hell I might learn something, either way it'll amuse me for a bit.

A neighbor brought over a bill from an HVAC repair call she had at a rent house.
The tech charged her $395 to replace a condenser fan motor.
I haven't kept current on prices but last time I bought a fan motor it ran $35 from Johnstone's for a Chinese POS.
It was the only one they had that fit so I put it in for my in-laws.
Now the older folks need AC. Buying a fan to blow 99 degree air over them just doesn't seem to work too well to keep them cool.
Now Nden can take the heat and so can most of us if we had to. It's the older folks that really need AC.
Old Bud didn't get a window unit until he was 101. On hot summer days when I was up there he wanted cold beer
so we would sit under one of his oak trees, drink beer, and eat the heart out of a big watermelon.
Sounds weird but it was really enjoyable.
But damn, I've got to have my AC now.
This 105 heat in the shade tires my fat old ass out.

You probably jinxed yourself by putting that in this thread.
You certainly don't deserve it while others probably do.

ETA Set you thermostat a bit higher than you normally do.
Wash your condenser coil more often in this heat too.
Find out what size capacitors you have on the fan and on the compressor and get some spares.
If they bulge or leak and your unit is not running, you can fix it ASAP with one of those spares.
Also, keep your evaporator coil clean and change your filters fairly often.
Hell, my condensing unit fan doesn't sound good to me.
I'm headed out to get a spare.
If I don't, it will go out. If I do, it won't.
That's my karma.

my mom's got a three year old high efficency a/c, I think she said her electric bill was $265 for the month, hell I got three box fans and one ceiling fan and my electric bill was $87 bucks this month, it was $81 last month, don't know how the fuck that's figured.

It comes from having the TV so much watching all those John Wayne movies.
