I don’t even know where to start. This is the 1st time I have ever really put myself out there for help. I live in Charleston, SC. Over the past 3 weeks it has rained everyday non-stop & the humidity generally around 82%-99%. As you can imagine this is hard on the AC Units. 2 Weeks ago my 2004 vehicle AC when out. I can handle the heat but the humidity is another struggle. In addition, my mother is on oxygen & lives with me. I ABSOLUTELY could not have her out & about with no AC. So I took it to my local pep boys who quickly identified that the electrical problem. No power was getting to the switch for the AC. They advised that they are unable to fix it & would have to take it to the dealer.
So I called the dealer. The dealer advised that the diagnostics alone was $150. Yes, that’s right $150 just to determine what the problem was. What’s a girl to do. Pay it. So they told me that to fix the electrical would be $550. I asked if that would fix the AC. The mechanic advised that it should.
Surprise!!!!! It didn’t :(. So they further inspected it & discovered that a part of the blower has malfunctioned. So yup, that’s right. It needs to be replaced. The part literally costs $67 but the labor is the kicker. $484 later I have AC.
Well this Sunday comes & I walk into the garage & see a puddle of water on the ground. My heart drops. I shimmy up into the attic to look at the AC unit. Water is soaking through the insulation. Great! The AC is blowing warm air as well. This had to be fixed immediately. My mother on oxygen can’t handle this. So yup emergency, weekend call! Damage $1100.
It’s the 1st of the month & you guessed it. Mortgage of $ 875 is due. What’s a girl to do? Ask strangers for help. I have spent over $3000 in 2 weeks that I don’t have. Any amount is a blessing. Thank you for your time.
