So, to celebrate what was perhaps the hottest day of the year so far–in the triple digits–I took a nice brisk 30 minute walk out and around the neighborhood. Then finished off with a few kettlebell swings with the 32 kg bell.
Nice little evening; not as hot as during the hottest portion of the day, of course, but dad gum humid.
Now if only my air conditioning were working… yeah, I had the refrigerant refreshed on Friday, because the air was blowing, but barely cool. So for Friday evening, and Saturday (for which I wasn’t here any of the hot time of the day) the house was cool. Sunday morning, I woke up a bit warm, and for the rest of the day, the air got warmer and warmer, until it was barely different from ambient.
I left the air off all day today to see if the inner coils just needed de-iced, but to no avail. So now it looks like I’ve got to get the inner coil replaced. After 10 years.
Of course, this would happen over the hottest days of the year… *sigh*
I’m thinking of replacing the inner coil myself (with some neighborly help, of course). I’m simultaneously kind of dreading it, yet also looking forward to it, especially if I end up deciding to do it myself. There is a kind of satisfaction with understanding it and fixing it yourself. Plus, it’s expensive on the contractor side, esp at this time of year. Let alone them finding time and personnel to do it anytime soon.
Anyway–just some thoughts.
