This past week, one of our Heating and Air Conditioning Units went out! The unit that went out cools the "sun room" that houses our semi-feral dogs. This room is a large (over 1000 sf) addition to the main house that is made entirely of sliding glass doors that allow maximum sunlight--which also means, the room literally COOKS in our hot South Carolina sun.
We have gotten lucky this past week that it has been overcast most days, keeping the temperature under 80 degrees--but it is still hot and sticky and damp without the AC working and the dogs want their AC back!
After gathering several quotes that ranged from $5000 to $12,000, we have hired a HVAC contractor to install the new unit on Tuesday. The total price will be $6000, give or take a bit. This will be a 3 ton heat pump unit with multiple fan settings to evenly distribute the air/heat.
It is a source of great pride for us that all of our dogs are housed inside and in climate controlled environments-like real family members--EVEN our semi-feral and feral pups. They may not be affectionate dogs, but they nonetheless deserve the same comfort and attention that any living creature deserves.
