Make Sure That AC is Working Before It’s Too Late

Few warm days

Now that we have had a few warm days I decided it was time to turn the AC on for the first time this year.

I’m glad I turned it on now before it got to hot because, what a surprise, it was broken.

My AC was only pumping out hot air, useless on a warm May day, and there was a funny small as well.

 

Repair Man

Finding AC repair in Manhattan, NY is surprisingly difficult!

This is not the warmest city in America and Manhattan is not exactly the right part of town for parts shops and repair companies, but I knew I had to find somewhere fast to stop myself from melting!

 

My Digital Friend

Luckily, internet search engines are my friend!

I jumped online and after searching for ‘AC repair in Manhattan, NY’ a number of results popped up.

It was now about 11am and the day was really starting to warm up, so for me this was all about finding a good repair company that could get the job done as fast as possible.

Needed this repaired quickly

Having done some internet research of my own I was pretty confident that my ducts were clogged and there might have been something wrong with my compressor as well.

I needed this repaired as quickly as possible as I was supposed to have friends coming around that afternoon!

 

Before my guests came

I rang around a few different places to see if I could get the AC repaired before my guests came around. I guess I am lucky that I have a fairly standard and well known unit, and the third company I rang were able to come out and bring all the necessary parts with them.

They were at my apartment within an hour and they had the ducts cleaned and the compressor replaced very quickly. The charge was reasoable and most importantly the house was cool.

Once the AC was on and blowing properly the smell soon disappeared and my guests had no idea what a hot mess they nearly wondered into!

Finding Deals on AC Repair Services

Stopped working

At the end of the summer season last year, my air conditioning stopped working, and at the time I did not have the money to get it fixed.

Besides, it was almost fall and I did not need it for much longer anyway. I am going to try to find AC repair services in NYC that will not cost me and arm and a leg because I now want to get this fixed as soon as I can.

I know that it is going to be pretty expensive, or at least, more expensive than I want to pay.

Given that I have known about the problem for quite awhile, I should have saved up money to pay for the repairs.

Able to afford

But I didn’t and now I am kind of in a pickle with regards to how I am going to be able to afford.

I am going to figure out how to afford it though, because being broke for a little bit is better than the alternative. The alternative in this scenario is dying of heat exhaustion.

 

Really HOT

My house gets really hot without any air conditioning, and it seems like it heats up faster than it should. Perhaps there is an issue with poor insulation in the house.

That could be, because it is an older house, that I purchased because it was such a good price at the time.

 

Better Insulation

Maybe I will look into getting better insulation put in at some point in the future, but not right now.

I can’t afford to do that as well right.

But it would be nice because the insulation would definitely save me some money on my heating and cooling bills.

I know that I use the stove too much in the summer too, which also really heats up the house a lot.
