Got our new shutters installed yesterday. Looks much better with them than without.
...we're in the suburbs of Hell down here...hope y'all are staying cooler.
heat advisory. I caught our evaporator on the central ac ice'd up last Wed. night. Thank goodness someone came on Friday. System is old and microscopic leak, low on freon. Usually I get leaks fixed, but again tech said microscopic over time based how much (little) freon needed. Been blowing 54F out the vents ever since (you hvac peeps will likely point out how meaningless that number is lol)
Those old central air units used to go forever. My former house had a Sears Custom III unit (manufactured by Trane I think) that I installed in the early 70's. It was over 30 years old when I sold the house and still worked perfectly. I only ever had to have refrigerant added one time during that span. It of course used the old R22 refrigerant, and the HVAC guys kept telling me I should replace it as R22 would not be available much longer. I would always just smile and say I would think about it. I don't know if the buyers of that house are still using that old AC but it wouldn't surprise me if they are.
yeah my unit is from 1999, and I moved in late 2002, so first use of the AC was mid 2003. Ran flawlessly until mid 2008--a buddy replaced a $14 capacitor for us and nothing until last Wed. night/Thu. morning.
Ditto with refrigerator, decent freezer on bottom purchased late 2002. Fridge warm, freezer cold, late 2017. Evaporator iced up. That time, defrost element ($17 on amazon) did the trick.
When we say they don't make 'em like they used to, it's not nostalgia--it's quality. Cars are the same--imho the best cars were made 2004-2008'ish.
In the south, we typically have heat pumps that handle cooling instead of central air conditioners, although they look similar. We have two top-of-the-line 2014 Carrier heat pumps, and in my opinion, they're total junk. It's been one expensive repair after another. Very disappointing. Sometimes the high end HVAC equipment doesn't pay off in economical reliability, same as cars.
Down here in Georgia. The temp has been to 101 deg.
