    We have 3 people at my work, myself included, that have started off the summer with AC units taking a crap.
    Anyone know where you can get a good deal on an AC unit?

    Yep, all new stuff from last year. Turned it on just to check last week, no go. Ugh, likely a leak somewhere.

    Knock on wood here. My first three years in AZ I had issues each spring. No bueno on a brand new home. New place works awesome so far.

    Heat pump. If it stops working I'll torch the house and call it a day.

    I wish the Camaro had AC. Probably something I will down the road. I'm not getting any younger and these things become more important with age.

    lol, my bad. I thru the A/C away in my firebird a long time ago. I don't drive it very much and when I do I'm usually looking for trouble.

    I think the same. In the house, it is necessary. In the car, I really do not care too much.

    And today's house AC is all R410a, a higher pressure system that the average homeowner can't touch. Systems are supposed to be built tougher for this and with the synthetic oil should last much longer than the old R22 units. We'll see. I'll run my old R22 AC until it completely lets go.

    My compressor is so loud it is probably pissing off the neighbors. We'll see today what the damage is.
