Air Conditioning

[Today’s run: nothing. Yesterday: 9 miles with Boardtown Runners]

Last summer our AC started having trouble.  The coil in the house got all frosty and frozen over and eventually the air would not go through the coil so the AC stopped working.  Usually we noticed this when the house temp would get up into the low 80’s.  And you could tell that the humidity was rising.

So, we called the phone number that is on a sticker on the unit.  Three guys showed up, an older man, a middle-aged man and a young man.  They put more AC juice/gas in the AC system and it then worked ok.

Jump ahead to this spring.  About 10 days ago, I thought it was frozen up again.  I turned it off and put a fan under the coil space.  The next morning it was dry so we ran it carefully.  I turned the temp up a bit so it did not have to work so hard.  We called the number.  The man said it would be about a week, run the fan blower even when the AC was not generating cooler air.  So we did that.

And now it doesn’t seem to be freezing up at all.  And I’m wondering if I dreamed it.  There was a piece of plastic that had gotten in (probably part of the wrapping of the furnace filters).  Maybe I saw that and assumed it was icing up.  The visibility into the coil is not very good.

Finally I stuck my camera into the closet and took a picture of the coil.  It looks dry.  All good.

So, good news:  either I’m going crazy or our AC healed itself.  I’ll take it!  As long as it is putting out cool air.

And we have not heard back from the AC man.
