Getting by with a window a/c

Because of the weather in the section where I live, I’ve never bothered with central air conditioner.

Our summer time seasons are too short to make it worth it… However, for those couple of months, the temperature often climbs into the high eighties as well as the humidity is pure torture, then the home suddenly becomes hot as well as sticky. This is only a problem for myself and others at evening, however i’m either at work, where there’s air conditioner, or I’m spending all of our free time outside. I prefer to work in the gardens, swim in the pool as well as study a book in the sunshine… Since our living room is the only room I need to keep cool, I get by with a window a/c… For the longest time, I got by with a certainly old cooling component that our sibling offered myself and others when she moved away, and although the a/c was extremely bulky as well as heavy, I was happy to have it, but every Spring, I would struggle to carry that a/c down the certainly steep as well as narrow attic stairs. I constantly had trouble getting the component to fit into the window. Although the a/c was rather noisy, it kept our living room perfectly cool all summer time long. I enjoyed it so much that I constantly left it in the window as well as ran the proposal until mid fall. The noise of the a/c operating as well as the believe of the air circulating was wonderful for sleeping. I’d then need to haul that bulky component back up into the attic… Just last year, when installing it into the window, I shoved a bit too aggressively. I hadn’t realized the wooden window frame was slightly rotted. The a/c went straight through as well as landed in the driveway. Falling out of a second story window was the end of the cooling unit.
