When I moved into my dwide a month ago my landlord told me it had
central ac, i guess I should have asked if it was working ac. She had
an ac man living in the neighborhood fix it or should I say rig it. He
told me to turn it on cool at the t box and then go outside to the
condenser box and push the fuse in to turn it on. Im already a little
weird messing with electrical things so I figured out which breaker it
was in the circuit breaker box and just started using that breaker
instead. One day when I tried to turn it on the breaker arced and
threw the main power breaker. Still havent seen anybody else to come
fix it properly instead of it being rigged like that. My ex is a jack
of all trades so he came out to look at it, he told me that the unit
was old. Even though the air is central it is pumped through the gas
furnace. He asked me where the return was and we couldnt find one, he
opened up the furnace panel and there was no filter in there and he
said we werent getting good air flow because there was no obvious place
for the return air to come in. Also the coils on the bottom of the
furnace were iced over and the freon tank in the condenser was iced as
well. He said it was low on freon but it just got charged a month ago,
so we figured that there had to be a leak. Also the box that has the
fuse in it that comes from the condenser to the house was no longer
attached to the house but just hanging there near the grass. He said
that was a problem and that having no filter in the furnace was a
hazard because of the dust buildup around all the wires. How dangerous
is this working the way it is.
stick to being a nice guy; be yourself.
you suck as a satirist. these idiots will NEVER accept you. they'd rather
torment you as they always have for fun as they do most homeowners.
And by the way I am NOT an HVAC guy. I am an electrician by trade. If people
asked me for advice on a website, I think all I could safely, legally tell
them is do not stick your finger in a light socket. I understand why these
guys feel the way they do, but their lack of respect is totally amazing (
well maybe not). Especially the trailer lady. How do they know she is
trailer trash? maybe just... ah fuck it ,who cares.
Oddly enough, that was a serious answer. After all, she did say that
something arced and threw the main breaker. Sounds like some serious
bad wiring, there.
But you're right, a few of the folks here will give me equal

You can\'t shout down a troll.
It hurts less if you wet your finger first.
Standing barefoot, in a basement, with a concrete floor,
flooded with brackish water, no less.
The first electric chair was made by Westinghouse.
On the back, there was a plate bearing the slogan:
"You can be sure!"
I was only kidding about the first paragraph,
but not about the second one.
Or any other part of yopur anatomy....
There once was a man from Woonsocket,
Who stuck his big dick in a socket.
His wife was a bitch,
And flipped on the switch,
And his balls took off like a rocket.
