I decided that it will be easier to become an HVAC repairman than to
rob banks. Since most banks only contain several hundred thousand
dollars in the till, I can take more in by telling people what is wrong
with their system and then charge them $1500 for fifteen minutes of
work. That works out to a cool $250k for the 40 hour week.
Now I digress...My wife calls at work and says the A/C made a gasping
noise and died. I drive home from work, check the system and yes,
there is no A/C blowing through the house. I go to the basement, and
hear the freon circulating, the outside unit still spins, etc.
Therefore, I think it is the blower motor (quick google search). I
call the repairman, he comes out and "yes, it is the blower motor and
the control board." I now notice the lack of status light and a burnt
mark in the middle of the Goodman board. He lets me know that he can
repair the whole thing for $1500. I get my game face on, google some
more and discover the board can be here in two days (he needed
three...wonder if he orders from the same web site). $125 dollars and
15 minutes later, the board is swapped out and the A/C is blowing like
a champ. Funny, but the motor was not bad.
I am tempted to call him and tell him what a loser he is...but, he has
Anyway, if it is not the freon or gas connector, you can repair it
yourself and make $250k a week (at least for fifteen minutes).
