It's a Conspiracy, I Tell Ya!

So ... our air conditioner problem. It has now turned into a conspiracy.

There is no air compressor to be found that will fit my unit.

Do you know why?

The federal government has come out with this. Do you know what that translates into?

Someone in Congress is in charge of these buttons. These buttons are hooked up to all of the air conditioner units that were installed prior to January 1, 2006. Throughout the year, this person, who is in charge of these buttons, punches a new button every hour. Those buttons then send a signal to all of those air units in the United States that tells the compressors to malfunction. In some sort of way.

The translation is this: there is no air compressor for my unit because they don't MAKE that air compressor anymore. We need the SEER 13, which is almost impossible to find on its own.

This then allows for HVAC people, who I swear are in Congress' pocket, to profit when they say things like "well, we can TRY to get you the compressor but I can't guarantee when it will come in. It could be weeks, it could be months. But it will be about 1/2 of what it will cost to put in a new unit, and then you don't have a warantee."

Why a conspiracy? Because I find it highly unlikely that my sister's air compressor went out in HER unit this past weekend.

I'm with you on the conspiracy.

We just had our annual government inspection yesterday and they wrote us up for all the window a/c units being a safety violation. An EMERGENCY safety violation. This guy said that it is a blocked egress (nevermind they have more than one window per apt and only one window is blocked by the a/c units).

Do you know how happy all them old ladies are going to be when we tell them their a/c units all have to come out in the middle of the hottest weather of the year?

That totally sucks! Our AC compressor died about a month ago. We have a 10 SEER and yet were able to get a compressor the next day. I don't know, did we luck out because we live in Arizona? Sorry to hear of your misfortune, what a scam.
