It's a Conspiracy, I Tell Ya!
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 a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
