I really appreciate all of the suggestions. I am going to contact the service organizations and see if there is any help available. The main problem is that the area we live in is so poor that the cost of helping the needy has drained the resources of most of the organizations that offer assistance.
I did receive some money and we are trying to decide between getting a window a/c for the bedroom or getting the estimate. I am also going to check and see if there are any other HVAC repair businesses that still do free estimates.
It’s hard to decide between the quick fix a window unit offers and finding out the cost of the repair because the unit also supplies our heat in the winter.
If anyone has other suggestions, any advice is appreciated.
