I wish I knew more about air conditioners so I wouldn’t have to call an HVAC technician every single time something goes wrong. It is really getting to be expensive and I am already pretty broke. Plus, my boss cut my hours at work this week so I need to find a way to save money. The other week, I realized that there was a problem with my air conditioner. It keeps cycling on and back off in short bursts. Nothing appears to be freezing over and the unit worked for a while in the past. I don’t think it’s oversized for the space it is cooling. I am thinking it might be a problem with the compressor but I really don’t know enough to make an accurate diagnosis. Perhaps it’s a problem with low refrigerant. I am not really sure what I am talking about to be honest. Once the A/C does start up, it cools just fine, but the cycling on and off is really starting to concern me. I feel like the entire system is going to shut down randomly one day. I live in the south, so I really need my A/C to function at all times. I just hate waking up in the middle of the night sweating due to A/C issues. I am going to have to call an HVAC service company – there’s just no way around it. I am terrified that the repair bill is going to be more than a couple hundred dollars. That’s all I currently have in my bank account. I know that I can just put the bill on credit card, but I was never the type of person to run up my credit card bill without the funds to pay it off immediately.
