My A/C unit went out in August when the blower motor quit. The repair man from the local utility could not get off the panels because one side is too close to the basement wall. Is there any way to move the unit out a couple more inches without having have the freon removed from the unit?

Next my boiler want's to come on but some of the steam radiators don't get heat, others get some. I have been flushing out the unit for the past 7 months since I moved in (at least once a week). What could I look for about this problem?

A/C: if you have some extra lin near the unit to be moved, it usually gives a-little.I cannot see what is being moved, but give it a try.
Heat: Your radiators probably need new steam vents. You can tell if you take off a vent ( while the boiler is cold!!!) then fire it up. you should start to hear the steam building and trying to escape. Shut down boiler as not to damage anything. Steam boilers should be left to the professional.
