I feel your pain Tracy. Its been a steady 90 here to, and practically no houses here have A/C, lotsa fans, shades, and open windows.
My grandparents have AC in there house, so I tend to drift over there more often when its 90-100 out to BS with my grandpa for a few hours.

does canada have humidity like we do down south? 90 degrees is so much worse when combined with humidity.

Yes we do.......with the "humidex" our 80 degree temps feel like 95 degrees! This past week has been blistering hot in Ontario 85-90 degrees BEFORE humidex so I can feel your pain! Today for the first time in a week its raining and temps are down to 70-75 but it'* real humid and sticky now!

My AC has been cranking all week at full blast (usually doesn't work that hard until mid July-August). It'* going to be a bitchen hot summer!

I did take them all off but didn't take any pictures....sorry. I spent last night dreaming I was a rottiserrie chicken because I had to keep turning towards the fan to cool off. It was 83* this morning and getting ready for work was a chore!!! I was so glad to get in the car and come to work so I can be in a/c environment. My dad said the guy is supposed to be at my house at 9:30 am. Hopefully he will be on time. I've got my dog tied up in the kitchen so he doesn't bite anyone. I felt bad leaving him in that hot house.

The guys showed up. Checked the unit for any leaks. Couldn't find anything but is sure there is a very small leak somewhere. They recharged it and will come back in a few days to put some stop leak in and see if that does the trick. If not I will have to buy a new unit for about $1500 I will have to start saving now and pray that this recharge gets me through this summer. I have a feeling I will need the new unit sooner than I hoped for. I've been doing this recharge thing once a year for the past 3 years and I've never quite had the money to replace the unit.

I'll just keep praying and try to sell some stuff on Ebay and save, save, save.

A bit late and a dollar short, but This site helped me diagnose my AC issue.
http://arnoldservice.com/air_conditioning_parts.htm

Scroll down for a Q/A section.
My contactor still acts up and the unit blows warm air occasionally. All I do is remove the cover plate on the unit and press the contactor to get the compressor going.
I know it'* not the same issue, but take it for what its worth
