Two and a half weeks ago our home AC died, as in not repairable. The good thing is we have an aftermarket home warranty that we keep pretty much strictly for AC issues. So the AC/furnace unit (gaspack) did it's job for 25 yrs, and after a second opinion (it was still terminal) they agreed to replaced it.
Today was the day!!!!
My out of pocket was a little over a grand on what would've been an 8k plus replacement (that covered the crane, the electrical, and rerouting the gas). I guess it was worth 7k to wait two and a half weeks.
It was still a hot miserable time in Tucson.
