A little background:
Last fall, I called the guy to come out and check/clean out my home heating system before I started using it for the winter.
Crack in the heat exchanger.
So I ended up having to buy a new heater (!@#$%&*!). I got several estimates and wound up going with the cheapest guy (precisely because he was the cheapest guy–by about $700!).
The heater gave love and warmth all winter, and I have no complaints about that.
Yesterday morning, however, I turned on the A/C for the first time, because the weather man predicted a day close to 90 degrees, and my dogs are cooped up at home all day (on this particular day, my pseudo-kid was sacked out on the couch, too).
I left it on overnight last night, because I was still feeling kind of warm when I went to bed. Then this morning, as I was yawning, stretching, and greeting the morning out in the back yard with the dogs, I happened to look over at my A/C unit.
It was as silent as a dead lamb.
Funny, I thought. I could have sworn the air was blasting when I walked out here…
I ducked my head back into the house and, indeed, air was coming out of the vents…
Only it was being supplied by my new HEATING unit in the basement. Wasn’t HOT air… but it was coming from the heating unit (which was just humming along). And yes, I did check to make sure that the thermostat was set on “Cool” (but if it hadn’t been, the dogs and the kid would surely have baked yesterday).
Here’s the Dumb Girlie question…
Should I be concerned?
Does this mean I can detach my outside A/C (which worked like a charm as of last summer) and sell it at a garage sale?
