    Anybody know a good, trustworthy, and hopefully reasonably priced AC repair man in the North Valley? The old split unit in my house is not working so good and it needs a shot of freon at the least, maybe replaced...

    Let me call my Dad tonight Russ. He just had his A/C replaced on his house here just a little bit ago. Go rent some swamp coolers and I can loan you my little portable one if that'll help. Good luck to ya in the future.

    Wow, is this a cool, close community or what? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thanks for the offers guys. But we're doing ok. The main unit is not cooling, but we have dual units on each end of the house. We're basically using the smaller unit with fans to keep the whole house relatively comfy. The only problem is the dog leg master bed room, and I'm using my portable shop swamp cooler in there.

    I'm thinking about getting the entire unit replaced. It's circa 1980 or so and looks pretty beat. Electricity savings will likely pay for a new unit in a few years, and when this thing kicks on, the lights dim! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif I'll definitely call and get quotes from any of the recommended guys. But I'm hoping a shot of Freon will do short term...
