Local HVAC service contractor: “Oh, yeah, we know what’s going on, your condenser coils are just dirty.”
Technician shows up and sprays the coils then promptly leaves.
Air conditioning continues to not work. Vital equipment starts to warn of impending thermal shutdown.
I go out and take a look at the condenser for literally four seconds.
how. HOW DID YOU MISS THIS???!!! Were you too busy trying to capture our ample local supply of rock and bug type Pokemon or something and never bothered to look at ANYTHING???
This is as obvious as the nose on your face. Damn thing’s iced over. That’s why we had no cooling. I set the unit to fan only and the amount of water that came flying out the condensate pipe was stunning.
Also, when the other tech came out to actually check everything, I got horribly, seriously confused by his gauges.
