Its all good, loungeroom a/c works fine, struggles in extreme heat (becomes a personal cooler) but better than nothing. Yes, electricity seems to be fine here, no blackouts so far. Last one was in June 2007 and that was the month of extreme storms and a beached bulk carrier. Thanks for your concernThus is very alarming, Sue. Do you sleep in the room with the air conditioner? Can it keep up wuth the heat in that room at least? And is electric power reliable at your home? Time to move farther south?
