I'm starting to hate the month of May. I posted a couple of weeks ago about having to replace our air handler. We paid extra for one with a universal coil that could work with the old R-22 in our outdoor unit, but also work with the new R-410 whenever we upgraded.
The upgrade happened sooner rather than later.
Our old unit couldn't hack it. The AC was running non-stop, yet it was still getting up to 86 in the house. Steven suffered through the weekend with me, and he realized for the first time just how miserable I am much of the time in my own home every day as a SAHW. Then again, it's never been that bad before.
The AC company came out again, and I was told that running the system (twice) with a freon leak has severely damaged the condensor. Add in the fact that it's always been too small for our house. (Thanks, previous owners who went cheap on all repairs.) So now we have a new condensor outside that's better sized for our home. It's cool again.
But we've now spent more than twice what we spent in necessary repairs and health costs last May. If this is going to become a pattern, I want to skip May 2011 altogether.
