AC goes out on a Sunday

One summer, as I was cleaning my house and listening to music, I noticed that it was getting very warm inside.

I usually clean my house with the windows and doors open to promote fresh air throughout the house, but this day was just too hot.

The region where I live is known to be very hot during the summer months. On this particular day, I was cleaning the house in the morning with the air conditioner on. I went outside for my morning coffee and even the porch at 7:00 am was scorching hot. I know the house needed to be cleaned so I turned the temperature down on the air conditioner to a cool 69 degrees. While the house cooled down, I prepared for a day of cleaning. I set a nice playlist, got the cleaning supplies out of the closet, and made some coffee. About 2 hours into my deep clean, I noticed that it was very warm in my house. I knew I had adjusted the thermostat, but was unsure if it was set. I went to the thermostat and it was read 84 degrees! I know something was wrong, so I called my landlord. She told me that because it was a Sunday, there was nothing she could do. I understood her reserves about paying extra money to have an HVAC company come out on a weekend, but I had guests coming into town that day. I called my brother. He is an HVAC technician. He agreed to do the job for a discounted rate and my landlord agreed to pay him.
