  • If u mean will your AC catch fire no it will not unless u have a bad circuit. I kniow in Florida the CPS or DHS can help u get your AC fixed or sometimes even get a new one if one of your kids has a legitimate medical reason like severe asthma. My nephew has real bad asthma when it gets real humid and hot. The CPS bought a new AC for my sister. It wasn't real big, but it was better then nothing.

  • My husband said listen to the outside unite if you can hear the fan and the compresser them it is probably needs freon. If that is the case he said to turn it off cause you can burn it up and it will cost a lot more to fix. He said it probably wont cause a fire tho. Sorry you are going through this I hope you can get it fixed soon :(

  • google your state and type in cooling center, there are places set up just for this case , i would go and take the kids there as well,,, also try and see if anyone is giving away free air conditioners, or at least one for 20 or 30 dollars
