We had some trouble with our air conditioner yesterday and we had to wait until 7:00 P.M. before the technician guy came over and fixed it. But our A/C is pretty old now and it looks like it is on its last legs. A new one will cost more than $4,000.00. Such is life! Do you have central air or a window unit?

Glad that it's been fixed, as I think it's very much needed during Summer. That's really expensive to get a new air conditioner there. We have three wall mounted units.

That's the price for a house of about 3,000 square feet.

The air conditioner guys are making a lot of money on those hot days.

We do have central air, but had to replace the unit last summer. Over $5,000 for that new central air unit. It was so hot in here and the dog was miserable, and I think I should have negotiated for a better price, but failed to do so due to being desperate. Next time around, I will fight for a better deal.

I know that we will get a better deal if we wait in the Fall for buying the new central air.

@marlina Could you use a window until while you wait? We have a large unit so that part of the house can be cooled and the rest ignored at times.

Glad that you got your air conditioner fixed today. If it can be fixed, it is better to get it fixed to save some money for a new one on the condition that the fixing fee is not too high. Otherwise it is better to get a new one instead. Well, I had an old one used for more than ten years, but before I replaced it for a new one, it was not working well because it did not make enough cool air. Last year we had three new window units installed in three rooms. They are working perfectly. Thank you for your discussion. Good day.

A conditioner here costs only 400$ and is even cheaper in winter. To stay without conditioner is uncomfortable. Bless your problem will be solved soon.

Central that we recently got ours working again. We used window units for about a month. I have to say that I was quite comfortable with the window units past the noise of the one in here preventing me from hearing the TV without turning it way up. Now I'm cold a lot even though I have the thermostat set on 81.

I'm lucky to have central air in my house. Sorry to hear that your a/c is going to have to be replaced especially since it's a costly replacement

It is to be expected after so many years of functioning pretty well, we can't complaint.

We don't usually need AC in the UK, but we could have done with it for the past week or so!

That is a lot of money for a new air-conditioner. I think ours is called a reverse cycle A/C. We can heat with it in winter or cool with it in summer.

We have both and really feel for those living with AC. Maybe we are wimps, but it is terribly hot to be without some relief.

That is a lot for a new one, but give our summer's heat there isn't much choice is there? We have hot water heat, so there is no ducts in the house, just small rads about 4 inches tall in the rooms, so we use a window a/c unit. We only have 1 story so it does the entire home-thankfully.

central air, but a back up window unit sitting in a spare room for emergencies, you cant go in texas long in the summer without something

I wouldn't live with window units - that' a step or two backwards! Haven't lived like that since I lived with my parents and that was 48 years ago! Our unit is only 5 years old and we still have 5 years of warranty coverage. Plus we have an over sized unit.
