One of my brothers lives in Texas and he says that air conditioners run nearly 24-7 to bear the heat. Two years ago he had to put a new attic unit in his house and the compressor was good then. Last month the compressor went out and he had to spend $4000.00 to replace it. His house is 15 years old.

Good luck. I've been where you are now and I'm very handy. It's not a lot of fun, but the results are well worthwhile.

Just finished up on a HUD foreclosure that one of my sons bought. It will all workout fine, just don't get discouraged. If a welder can redone an old house you can too.

I hope I'm wrong and you just found a good electrician hurting for work willing to do it cheaply.
I hired and electrician's apprentice. He was chomping at the bit to show that he knows his stuff. He was quite good.

Thank God for concrete floors underneath the parque. God loves me.

As was mentioned by Bobby in an earlier post, this economy is in the crapper. So many people are looking for anything and are willing to fight for it. But here's the secret. I detailed the job on craigslist, and said I'd pay $9 an hour, but if they could get it done in 4 hours or less, I'd give them a crisp hundred dollar bill. Everyone, with no exceptions, busted their ass and did an exceptional job. That's the key. Don't ask what someone would charge to do such and such a job. Once they know you need them, the rates change. Dictate the terms and YOU are the man.

You couldn't handle that? I would have come help you out for a round trip ticket and beer.

I might have made a bigger mess than the pros, but it's all pretty simple stuff.

Whoa, wait, wasn't me.

I was merely waiting till the 70's era lead-based paint chips took their toll on your brain, then I'd just slide in there unopposed.
