Today as I was napping during the hottest part of the day my front air conditioner gave it up to the ghost. It is about 6 years old so I guess it surpassed it's life span., a Frigidaire 12000btu unit that actually worked better than the LG 15000 it replaced. The LG only lasted about 3 summers, if it is digital and Styrofoam it isn't worth the paper used to pack it. I noticed the cats were jumping up on my washing machine in the hallway and they have never done that but I got up from my nap two times to get them off the washing machine. I finally gave up after two attempts to go back to sleep and I walked into the front kitchen area and knew before I reached the kitchen the air had stopped working. It is just killer heat and humidity here and I suspect the unit has a compressor failing because it did come back on a couple times and then off after a minute or two. Possibly a thermal switch or something that you couldn't find if your life depended on it. When cheap air conditioners quit don't waste you time trying to save a dollar, get another soon as possible. Tonight the cats are here in my room on a chair and the 3rd cat is laying down on my little wheeled hutch I have a monitor sitting on plus their bagged food. Tomorrow I will close the door and keep them in here where it will be tolerable until late in the day. I can also bring my box fan in and help circulate the air. It will be much better than them trying to tolerate a hot hallway. I only rent so I will get another air soon as the owners contact me. This will be the 5th replacement in 14 years. In the days past it was common to have a unit last 20 years. It is times like these I wish I were still in Nevada using a water cooler, they are so easy to repair and cool twice as good as air conditioning, and you can even leave your doors open and it still cools even with temperatures 115-120 outside. It would never work here since humidity kills the cooling effect of the water coolers. Last night at 12:30 it was still 89 degrees outside.
