A/C back in working order

It was very nice to sleep in a cool house once again. Evidently the first repairman had topped off the freeon too much and it wasn't pulling the hot air from the house. Our builder came by with two repairmen - one with freeon in case they needed it and the other with parts since they didn't know what was up with the unit.

They did find a piece of copper in the pipe, probably from when they soldered the pieces together and an extra piece of copper solder broke off and wedged itself where it shouldn't have been. The one repairman said the copper piece, with the extra freeon, wouldn't let the hot air be drawn from the house.

Now we'll see if the combined actions have fixed this thing once and for all. If not, they have already said they'd replace the whole unit.
