Let me tell you - it's not a good thing to hear this from your handyman. He was here all last Saturday evening fixing my refrigerator (the compressor had died Thursday evening), then he was back Tuesday evening because my A/C had died. He came back the next morning with a stash of filters for my unit to make sure I changed the filter more often - oops.
Then today, I get back from visiting my Mom for a few days and the A/C wasn't working again. So here came the handyman, John, again. After working on unit, he came upstairs saying "Well, I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that your control board needs to be replaced. The good news is that I can hardwire the A/C so the fan will blow continuously until I get back Monday evening or Tuesday to replace it." Hmm, guess which one I chose? The fan is blowing. When it's this hot, it ends up blowing most of the night anyways, right?
As I wrote a check for the cost of the control board, he mentioned that this isn't including the labor cost yet, but we can take care of that later. Like when he comes back to repair my kitchen light switches or my dead electrical sockets. Hmm, maybe I can just hire him on retainer and pay him a monthly fee for life?...LOL OH wait, maybe that's why I'm supposed to get married.....ROFLOL!
