Tip & How-To about Heating & Cooling
There are a number of things that cause a window air conditioner to blow warm air. None of them good. A faulty thermostat. A small leak which requires repair and recharge of refrigerant. A bad compressor. A bad capacitor. The list goes on.
As an air conditioning mechanic, I earn a good wage. Add cost of a vehicle, auto insurance, gasoline, cost of inventory, the person that answers the phone at the office, liability insurance, unemployment insurance, workman's compensation insurance, payroll taxes, taxes on inventory, my accountant's fees, my attorney's fees the donations to the local little league teams, cost to purchase and maintain my large number of highly specialized tools and instruments .... My hourly rate, depending on what part of the country I'm in, is at least $75.00. Add $25 to $75 for the most basic of parts. Your repair is going to run at least $100.00.
Unless your window airconditioner is a very large, commercial unit, it will be much less expensive and quicker for you to go to Walmart, Kmart, Target or the Big Box store of your choice and get another one.
