I’m Hot, and Not in a Good Way

The thermostat has been set on 72 for three days.

The temperature inside the house has been 77 degrees for three days.

The Taters have been cranky for three days.

I called our air conditioning people and someone came around 11:00 yesterday morning to check things out.  The fellow looked around and said that everything appeared to be working normally.  He suggested changing the batteries in the thermostat, explaining that if the batteries were bad, the thermostat could be having trouble regulating itself.  We changed the batteries.  He left and told me to give the office a call if things didn’t cool off.

Two hours later, the house was not any cooler, so I called the AC folks back.  They suggested doing a couple of things.

When the hubs came home, he changed the filter and I hosed off the unit outside (both of which were filthy).  I reset the thermostat.

It is still 77 degrees inside the house.  And we are still cranky.

Did I mention that we just spent about $200 less than a month ago to replace the unit’s motor?  No?  Oh, well, we did.  That kind of adds to the crankiness.

We’re on the schedule for the AC fellow to come back today.  He’s a nice guy, and he’ll get everything straightened out.

Tater Tot and I will just sit here and eat Popsicles while we wait.  It’ll help keep us cool.  And it will definitely cut down on the crankiness.

    Yuck! I had a duplex in college that the AC would freeze… literally a block of ice in my hallway… at least once a week. It was crazy!

    Boy, I guess it’s a good thing this isn’t happening in June or August! That would just be stifling! And…well, it would require more than popsicles. A nice, ice cold Diet Coke perhaps? And some ice cream sandwiches…and creamsicles…and Rocky Road ice cream…

    I hate being warm! I’d be cranky too… : )

    Yeah for popsicles! Hope everything gets figured out tomorrow…and at least you’re not in the middle of the dreaded summer trying to get it fixed. In the meantime, eat a popsicle for me…cherry! 😉
