Well, I managed to do it again, but last weekend I had to go to the emergency room for the fifth time this year! Like our last more than one visits, the cause for our trip to the hospital was no accident. If anything, I would say that I have to learn our lesson the hard way, plus I have to learn it 3 times before it sticks! This all happened because I got the bright plan of trying to refill the refrigerant line for our a/c system at home. The Heating plus A/C service business that comes by our home every couple of weeks makes it seem so easy plus easy to do, so how can you blame me? To be fair, heating plus a/c businesses go through extensive hands-on training to perform this plus hundreds of other services for Heating plus A/C equipment, so naturally he would make it seem easy. I was a fool to suppose that I could take any aged can of refrigerant from a hardware store, plus try to fill the refrigerant line separate from even using the right hose. Since the hose that came with the refrigerant canister was too small, I had the bright plan to force the line open with a tool plus try to “pour” the refrigerant into the a/c unit. As you might have already guessed, this didn’t prove successful – it did, however, result in a ton of pressurized refrigerant from inside our system being shot into our face plus eyes. The dentists at the hospital told me I should be blind, plus it was a superb thing I had sunglasses on when this happened. I believe I need to just get over this urge to service everything myself, plus call a professional when I need 1!
