It has been hitting temperatures around the 115 degrees here in Henderson, Nevada. It’s weeks like these that make me very happy I have good air conditioning.
When I moved into this house last August, it was also insanely hot. So we cranked up the AC, and sure enough it went out on me. I called an air conditioning repair shop to come and take a look. According to the shop, the unit was busted and I would require an entire new system.
To make matters worse, I have two air conditioners. One was built in 1979, the other in 1993. Sure enough, it’s the newer one the guy says needs to be replaced. Since I don’t like the idea of having the really old one going, knowing that it could die out on me any day, I figure I should just price out replacing both.
To replace both units with super efficient AC’s, the price would have been about $12,000. Truly an insane price. So I decided to get a second opinion.
I’m not close to my step-father. He enjoys his wrestling and other stuff like that, and we don’t have much in common. But I do have to admit to admiring his work ethic. He handles maintenance for apartment complexes in Phoenix. This guy hauls big AC’s unit up roofs to install. He is also a certified AC guy with over a decade of experience installing air conditioners. So I had him come out and take a look.
To fix this thing took him literally about 30 minutes, and less than $10 in parts. It looks like the Henderson air conditioning place I called was going to screw me over on this thing.
But I do think I might have to replace the units soon. So now I have to start looking out for the best air conditioning repair people in Henderson Nevada. If any of you know someone, let me know.
