Surviving an Aircon Breakdown

You may have stumbled upon this page in desperation. You may miss your aircon badly. Your relationship with your aircon may be deteriorating already. Or your aircon had just broken down and you are lonely.

Either way, I am here to give you advice.


Because it’s too hot to erase the watermarks

Aircons are not forever. This is the first thing you should know when starting on a relationship. Aircons are, contrary to popular belief, not very good at relationships. They lack commitment. They don’t give gifts.They forget dates. They pick their noses in public. And they bail out at the last minute.

And by “bailing out” I mean “conking out in the middle of summer when you need it the most”. It sucks, I know. But aircons are like that.

And you are NOT a loser! Aircons are unable to handle commitments. It is not your fault. It is the aircon’s.

Don’t be a pathetic whining loser, dammit! If I ever hear you becoming emo, I’m gonna send Chuck Norris to roundhouse kick your spleen into the fourth dimension before you can say “Simple Plan”.


An unfortunate effect of too much heat

Be a man! It’s just heat! It may be sweltering, but… you can take it, I’m sure.

Anyway, you have a bounceback option. It’s called “electric fan”.

    LOL yeah I'm an idiot who's emotionally dependent on a split-type a/c unit. Despite my a/c breaking down on every now & then, with a broken remote control device to boot, I still worship it to bits.

    ade, you cut me deep. i'm one of those "pathetic whining loser" when frikkin' air cons break down. 😉

  11. Where I live we get really HOT summers and really COLD winters. Either way my heating and aircon bills are always high. On hot days I try to stay cool by stuffing ice in my clothes. It doesn't work very well because people stare after the ice melts…hehe.

  12. I don't need airconditioners anymore, I alone am cool (literally). And I don't sweat easily. hihihi

  13. Oh that's definitely an advance tip for me, since summer here is coming soon.

  14. Tam

    Ah, we have a "built-in" aircon in my city. Haha.

  15. i can live without aircon in the house. but if you tell me to go to manila and travel on a vehicle w/o aircon and with all that traffic? no way! hehehe 😛

  16. I’ll die in too much heat so maybe, I’ll die without it. 😛

  17. For your A/C to last long, you should clean it on a regular basis unless of course, it’s a decade old already in which case, you really need to replace it. Meantime, as you said, you can always depend on electric fans. 😀
