The Mouse’s Last Meal

{source}
One of these little buggers cost us $150. over this past weekend!!!
Friday night after work, Daddy P texted me not to turn the A/C on if I got home before him. 
I came home to learn that our A/C was not working… and blowing fuses, at that.
We put a phone call into our Dads {our parents help us out all.of.the.time – LOVE them for that!}
to see if they had any ideas on how to fix it.
After P talked to his Dad, it didn’t sound good. His Dad thought it was the compressor in the actual A/C unit itself. They had theirs fixed at their house in Arizona {GOTTA have A/C there!} and it cost them about 2K.
Um, what? I was watching my master bathroom project disappear before my eyes. 
My Parents have been to Chi to visit my little Sister & Bro-in-law, so we could not get a hold of my Dad right away. {he is a retired electrician, so usually extremely helpful}
Once we did get a hold of him, he walked P through a couple of instances and the fuse still was poppin’. 
So…. with heavy heads, we called a heating & cooling guy that my Dad referred us to.
He came {quite quickly for a Saturday afternoon, mind you!} and fixed it for us.
Yes!!! We have A/C now!!! 
What happened? Did we need a 2K compressor as a fix?
Heck no! And thank goodness for that!!!
It was a mouse.
The mouse had gotten inside the cover and eaten the wires… which was the last thing that little thing did because it was fried. Gross, I know. I will spare you the picture {no, I didn’t really take one}
On the upside, he reconnected the last meal wires and cleaned the unit {which now P knows how to do on his own}, our freon was low so that was also filled up.
Glad we can still focus on our Master Bathroom project!!!!

  1. Glad it didn't cost you $2K. $150 pretty reasonable! And ew about the fried mouse. You didn't smell it? Or maybe you did and didn't know. But glad it's fixed! AC probs sucks
