So this morning around 8:00, our air conditioner started making this awful noise. My words to the air company were: "It sounds like it it going to blow up". They informed me that they were pretty busy today but they would try and fit me into the schedule. I decided I didn't want to burn the unit up, so I just turned it off and waited for them to come. They finally arrived around 4:30 to have a look at it. As first glance, they informed me that the motor would need to be replaced and that could take a day or a week!!!
Me: "I'm sorry did you say a day or a week!!"
Air man: "Yes, this is an older unit and if we can even get the part it can take that long or we may just have to replace the entire unit."
Me: "Ok, how much for a new unit"
Air man: "Let me make a call"
Me thinking to myself: "Sure, you make a call. I'm just dying to know how much for an entire NEW UNIT!"
Air man just calming and nonchalantly said: "Ok, we can replace the whole thing for $4200. Do you want to just replace it?"
I have to say I almost thought I was going to have a mini breakdown right there in front of him.
OH YES MR. AIRMAN, I HAVE $4200 JUST BURNING AN FING HOLE IN MY POCKET RIGHT NOW. PLEASE GO RIGHT AHEAD AND GET MOVING ON THIS PROJECT BECAUSE I HAVE ALL THE DAMN MONEY IN THE WORLD!.
At this point I'm literally have an mini drama meltdown in my head. I calming excuse myself to call Jordan. I did not calming tell Jordan what was going on. After a little bit of a rant, I went back outside to talk to the air guy.
He then explained to me that he can replace the motor for a few hundred dollars. What did I want to do?
Ummmmmm...........let me think about this. Do I want to spend $400 to fix the problem or $4200 to fix the problem. I think I'll go with the $400, but thank you so much for the option.
Fortunately our air is still working until they get the dang thing fixed! Geez I hate home ownership sometimes.
