It's 103° and your A/C doesn't work

Yep, its 99° now, but today's high was 103°. Our A/C froze up this morning about 11:30, and I just checked my tank temp, and it's about 81°. I don't know who's more miserable, me, the fish, or the two dogs.

It did this to us last Thursday too. My daughter-in-law called the property manager who in turn will call the owner. This happened last month too and the A/C guy came out and said it looked ok, but topped off the refrigerant anyway.

This is a new A/C unit as well. It was replaced last summer.

Where's February when you need it, lol!

If the water keeps warming up, a couple ice cubes should do the trick

It's coming down now. The A/C lines finally thawed and we have air again: )

I keep a couple of water bottles in the fridge for such an emergency, but so far, it hasn't gotten over 82°. That's my threshold. Any warmer and the water bottles go in.

A water hose can pretty quickly thaw your compressor lines.

We let them thaw naturally, but when we turned yha AC back on later that night, the froze up within 2 hours.

The AC guy was out the next morning before it got hot again, and the refrigerant was a little low, as it was a month ago, and he topped it off again. This time he also put in some stop-leak, suspecting a micro leak. Well see...
