It's showing again. I hate computers.
So does he or not?I've had to start bringing the bird feeders in at night due to the bear waking up from their winter nap. Then I have to remember to put them back out in the morning or the birds get all ornery. I had to do this last year too. I guess it's becoming the new normal.
This guy spent over 30 minutes around the feeder.

So I guess you'll be resting up now...?Had the AC inspection. Said everything checked out but the contact points looked a little scarred. He said he would recommend new ones and while he was at it replace the capacitor. How much, I asked. $299.00 for each. 600 bucks. Nope, not doing that.
The last time I had someone out they said the only weak reading was on the fan motor and it wasn't critical. I asked what they would charge to come out and replace if and when it failed. He said about 500 bucks. I bought an exact replacement fan motor including the proper plug online for 140 bucks and installed it taking my time in less than 30 minutes. I also ordered a capacitor at the same time as a backup for 30-40 bucks. They are easy to replace.
The unit is 12 years old and working fine. I knew he was just trying to get extra revenue. I figure I'm getting bonus time for every year over 10-12 years here in AZ with our hot summers. If I get another couple years out of it I'll be happy. If not, so be it.
