Iceboxxx: Just fixed my AC last Tuesday after the capacitor went out after trying to cool the top floor of the house in 105 degree weather while the oven was on to clean itself. Never had a chance. Took about 15 minutes to figure out what was wrong with it, took another 3 hours to find a place that would actually sell me a 25 dollar part. Every place I called told me that they would install it for me but they wouldn't sell it to me, jerks. Just glad that the house has two ACs, one for each floor and we only had to camp sleep downstairs the first night. Yes, our house is weird and we have the kitchen on the second floor. People in the Las Vegas Area do not know how to layout a house.


I have been using this guy for years. Excellent service, he's in Indiana and I'm north of Chicago... next day delivery. Just had to replace the circuit board in my furnace week before last (was either the board or the blower).

I hate that saying. It should be "an armed society is a fearful society".

Yeah, it's been absurdly nice here. I was thinking of the hotel television in "Defending Your Life" that shows "72 degrees, perfectly clear" weather every day.

That's just silly - I was never afraid when I lived in Colorado Springs - and EVERYONE there carries.

On the other hand...now living in Chicago where only gangs get to carry and there's no such thing as CCH? A tad bit more fearful.

/would be more fearful if I didn't carry anyway.

My house is laid out that way. In fact a lot of houses around me are laid out that way. Not only our kitchen, but both bathrooms are on the second floor with all the utility stuff like laundry room, water heater and furnace is on the first floor. Although we do something a little different that keeps the first floor cool without AC, we bury it underground and call it a basement.

/just in the mood to mess around
//I too just fixed my AC today
///this time of year I cook outside or eat out, oven stays off


I wish I had a basement, but then they wouldn't be able to throw up an entire neighborhood in the span of a couple months here. Would also save myself a few hundred bucks on electricity during the summer months, since it doesn't get as hot. You would think in places like Las Vegas they would have basements, but I was talking to one of the old guys I work with and the idea seemed foreign to them.

/miss the basement I grew up in, in Colorado

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind if I have an appliance issue. I was planning on ordering it online from grainger.com if I couldn't find it that day since we wanted to sleep in our bed right away and also I was going to be traveling for a couple days and didn't want my wife to suffer not being able to do any cooking while it needed to get shipped. Luckily, I was able to get it at a place called Appliances Parts Company, and when I showed up with the part they took a look at it and got me the replacement right away. Which is a much better experience then when I called Sears to see if they might carry the part. Which ended up with several transfers and finally getting one lady, which I told her the part number on the capacitor and the AC unit and was asked where I got the numbers from like I divined them out of nothing so I could make the call. Had to tell them, "I'm looking at the part right now and that's that part number that's on it." My wife was listening in on the phone call and looked at me like "did she really just ask you that." After about 3 minutes of silence and some typing I get transferred over to another department to start the fun all over again. Just wanted to talk to someone at the local sears department.

I'm just happy to know that there are stores out there that will be willing to sell you the parts without having to hire someone to install them.

I grew up in western NY (Rochester) and pretty much everyone I knew, ever, had a basement. My grandmother's house in Indy has one too, but it was built in 1948 so apparently that was still common then. When my sister bought her house in IN up near Carmel, I was like 'where's the basement'. Her husband looked at me funny and told me most houses around there don't have them. Instead they have a 'tornado closet'. I wish them luck with that, and hope I am never again visiting during storms (unless staying at my Grandmother's house).

As to the cooling effects, my house is a bit over 100 years old and has a pretty decent basement even though it's unfinished; even though the foundation actually comes up over the ground about two feet, it keeps the first floor very cool through most of the day as long as the windows are locked and shades down. Upstairs is a different story, but that's mostly because the roof slants right down through the rooms and there's no way to insulate it any more than it already is.

MOVE TO WHERE THE COLD IS! Aaaaah! AAAAAAH!

I live where the cold is (MN) and there is not a lot of cold around here right now.

/Upper 90s and humid
//Come on Winter!


I grew up near Death Valley. China Lake Naval Weapon Station - High temperature of 125 (look it up). Low of - we got snow. That's why I live here. Complain about your life and the weather all you want. Or change.

I think you are thinking about San Diego and the water fights with Mexico with the Colorado? Or are you talking about LA and Mono Lake stealing the water from the back side of the Sierras? Either way, Orange County has their own reservoir. Unlike the Midwest that is draining their great underground reservoir. I'm just hoping we get unlimited power some day (cold fusion, something) because when then that happens - unlimited power - that means we can pump fresh water from the oceans through desalinization plants or from the Great Lakes to you losers. But you still won't have waves. :)

Screw that, keep yer* dirty mitts off the Great Lakes.

*yer refers to anyone who thinks it's a good idea to take water from drain them as that would be catastrophic to a huge region.

Not yours.
