Texas Heat

I'm having to keep an eye on my chest freezer.  The heat is playing it hard on the fridge and the freezer.  I'm not able to keep them very cool because I don't run the A/C anymore than I absolutely have to.  The electric bill will be high even with the way I use it at night.  I only turn it on during the day when I can't stand the heat because of the triple digit temperatures.  Looks like today will be another hot one, and I'm worried that this heat has killed the compressor on my freezer.  If so, then there goes my food and the expense of buying another freezer soon.  The life of an older person who is on a fixed income is not easy and always takes more money than we make.
