I just want a quick opinion. We have a 22 yr old Rheem central air unit...It was here when we bought the house.Last summer our AC started blowing warm with no force. We went outside and there was an oily type liquid around the bottom of the unit. The fan and all that still moved....any ideas???
We are looking at a replacement(or repair if it would be good idea which I doubt). We have a story and a half home built in 1972, about 1300 sq feet plus a basement which adds about 800 sq feet or so. We do use the basement for living space, but it stays pretty cool on its own. We had lots of trouble keeping the upstairs cool when the AC did work. We have no shade trees at all. We do have new windows (2002)Any suggestions? We are going to call contractors for estimates today, but I wanted to get opinions from here! I am 8 months pregnant, pregnant women and heat do not mix well
