ac run but blows hot air
AC works more off hen on. It didn't work x 1 year (only one evening it turned on over that time), then worked for 2 years, followed by another 1 1/2 years of not working and 2 months working again and currently not working. These cycles occur without intervention (quote is around $1000 for new a/c, no other options provided for repair). When the air conditioning fails, the air circulation is failing as well.
