It is cold again Project 365(3) Day 216

Pam and I seem to be going though one of those periods that you have when a number of challenges loom up to face you.

 

First it was the battery on the car that died, then I had problems with the installation of programs on my new computer, I had a hair on the sensor of my best camera, one of my UPS expired, the fence at the back was making its way into the garden below and finally (I hope) the new air conditioning unit stopped blowing cold air.

 

This air conditioning unit worked fine when it was first installed. The air in the room was nicely chilled and it was taking out a decent quantity of water each day. Then gradually it chilled less and less and the room still felt muggy an hour or so after the unit was switched on.

 

Nothing else for it, call the shop and get someone out to look at it so that is what we did yesterday. This morning, first thing, the technicians arrived and confirmed my suspicions that somehow all the gas had escaped from inside. After taking this outside unit off the wall, it was an easy job to locate the gas joint that was leaking, correct that, fill the unit back up with gas, and check that all was well with a manometer.

 

Result, the unit is working 100% again, the air is nicely chilled and the water bottle outside was half full after just two hours of operation.

 

Now back to that garden fence!
