If the rain would stop, I could troubleshoot the AC

It has been raining for three days straight, but today the AC decided to quit working.

I knew the AC was having trouble keeping up with the heat, but I didn’t expect it to break down completely.

My wife and I had the AC machine tuned up and evaluated before the summer season. The technician assured us that everything was working correctly. A couple of days ago, It started raining and the humidity levels increased. I think that may have caused some harm to the AC, because the machine has been working sluggishly since the storm started. If the rain would stop, I could go outside and troubleshoot the AC. I don’t want to go out there and attempt to take the machine apart while it is raining. That is the fastest way to get electrocuted or shocked by a bolt of lightning. Until the rain subsides, all I can do is hope and pray that I can fix the problem. It can cost a fortune to have the AC replaced and my wife and I cannot afford that expense right now. Our son is starting college this fall and we have to pay the tuition fees in advance this year. If we need a new HVAC unit, we might have to take a loan from the 401K. We won’t be able to take it from the college and savings money. That makes me feel incredibly frustrated, but I’m still hoping that the unit can be fixed. If the rain would just stop, I could go outside and have a look.
