06:56 pm - The continuing saga of the AC
Well, the AC repair guy came by and pushed a button. Cost me $134, but at least I know which button he pushed now so I can do it when the time comes. It was a circuit breaker of sorts, but for the coolant pressure. For some reason, the cooland was over-pressure and the thing flipped.
I'm getting a new, much more efficient AC unit next year. It'll cost me about $5k. I was going to get the most efficient I could, but like many things, you end up paying exponentially more money the better it gets. Also, a bunch of my existing heating and cooling system would have to be seriously altered before a really high efficiency one would work. So, I'll just get a pretty high efficiency one. :-)
Of course, maatnofret insisted that it was a nice day out today, and she liked having the windows open. So, the AC isn't on now. But, I'm not spending another sleepless, blown on night like I did last night. The windows are all shutting and the AC is turning on. :-)
