A quick update.
In case anyone was wondering, I thought I would bring you up to speed with our ongoing air conditioner problems.
See part 2 for the backstory.
After 3 weeks of troubleshooting and banging out heads against various unforgiving surfaces, the source of the problem has been located.
Of course it turned out to be rediculously simple. A single wire going into the controller box up in the roofspace had not been pushed in far enough and was not making contact.
A 0.5 second fix.
Yesterday we had a new electrician (and he was a big unit) up in the crawlspace trying to figure it out. A fresh set of eyes.
Suddenly we heard: “haaaaang on a second”
0.5 seconds later the sweet sound of air blowing from the ceiling vents.
5 minutes later the air was hot.
I felt like taking off my clothes and doing a happy dance under the blow.
Like the song says, you don’t know what you got till it’s gone.
Now we have a glorious warm house and no longer need to wrap ourselves in blankets whilst watching TV.
So that’s the final instalment of this story ( touch wood ).
Tonight…a big bowl of popcorn. A cold beer. Sprawl on the couch. And some shiver-free Netflix.
And just like all good story conclusions…we lived happily ever after.
