    The compressor and radiator are working just fine, but the fan turns veeeeeery slooooooowly. I am totally sweating my balls off, and the maintenence man at my apartment complex didn't make it in today. I am not gonna be able to sleep tonight, and it's gonna suck in a big way. How did people live without stuff like this before? Just thought I'd share.

    That truly sucks. Go to Walmart and buy a few fans to help you sleep

    I was at a football camp w/ our team in Pennsylvania last week, and we stayed in the dorms w/out A/C, and I thought it would be horrible, but w/ a couple of fans it wasn't that bad. That said, my house is an oven w/out A/C.

    We haven't run the air conditioner at my place this year, although tonight it may have to get busted out.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    I absolutely LOVE the A/C. I can't stand the heat and humidity at all. If my A/C went down I'd be in hell until it was fixed. :evil: Fans help, but you're just moving hot air.

    I hope you get it fixed soon, jlb.

    My inlaws A/C died this weekend also.

    Of course they live in New Orleans where it was in the 90's with 70-80% humidity. They came over to our house for the day.

    The south would still be an uninhabitable swamp if not for A/C.

    Just mowing my yard on a riding mower this weekend I was drenched.

    There is no doubt about that. When I first moved to SC, being young and dumb with money in my pocket for the first time, I bought a Jeep Wrangler w/o AC. My theory was dropping the soft top would be my I got older that novelty grew old. I paid $1200 to have an AC put in last summer.

    Last summer the power went out... my wife and I packed up and went over to my folks, and stayed in an extra bedroom... I have the A/C on as well as a fan when I sleep... I like it cold!!!

    I don't have A/C in my apartment. It usually isn't too bad overnight with a box fan in the window and another fan on me. I would hate to be there all day though. My parents have a few window A/C's laying around so I'm trying to talk my leasing office into installing an A/C sleeve in my room so that I can bring one up.

    I'm with you gbear. I like the AC cranked and a fan running in my bedroom. I sleep with a fan all year long and can't sleep when I go somewhere that doesn't have a fan.

    It's too quiet to sleep.

    Thump the sound isn't quite the issue as much as circulating the cool air... the second floor is warm when compaired to the first floor... the basement is real cold... there isn't a door or anything at the staircase, so the cool air moves down...

    why do i remember reading something about sleeping with a fan on all of the time can lead to something like bells paulsey....

    anyone remember this?

    I've heard the same thing but my doctor said it was a myth.

    The fan is only on in the summer in our home... the rest of the time I'd rather it be off (no sense in circulating hot air... the fan is real close to the A/C vent)...
