That A/​C thing

Appar­ent­ly the fil­ter for the unit is miss­ing, and the coils need to be cleaned. There’s no obvi­ous sign of mold/​mildew, but Sam says that fresh air is com­ing into the bed­room via the unit, and our neigh­bors on that side have been burn­ing some­thing in their back yard.

I found the web site for the man­u­fac­tur­er, and of course the man­u­al for our mod­el isn’t there. The self-ser­vice sec­tion of the site does men­tion that the coils need to be cleaned, but doesn’t say how to do it. I sus­pect that it involves coil clean­er and a hose. Coil clean­er seems to come with a/​c ser­vice peo­ple. I’ll have to ask my father if we can get some and use it safe­ly.

Sam remem­bers a fil­ter, but hasn’t seen it since we moved here, so we may have to order a new one from the com­pa­ny. Of course, their not-help­ful site doesn’t have any infor­ma­tion about parts, either. So I sent them an e-mail, and hope that they’ll reply.

They asked me to do a review about my expe­ri­ence with their site. That was prob­a­bly a mis­take on my site, but I did it. Their rat­ings may have just plum­met­ed.

Now the girl and I need to get to work get­ting the house ready for our Dragon*Con guest next week. I hope the “guest room” isn’t too hot for him! May­be I should put up a Freecy­cle post look­ing for anoth­er win­dow unit?
