My family was not very wealthy when I was a young one. Basically, if you wanted something you had to work very hard for it. One pricy thing I constantly wanted was air conditioner. The Summers in my state get terribly tepid plus my family never had a central cooling system, and i complained plus begged for A/C most of my life. My father then found a old and beat up portable cooling component on the side of the road that was free. It did not work, but my dad still picked it up, but he said that if A/C was that vital to me, I could service the portable air conditioner system plus have it. I tested that portable A/C equipment for months and months. The Summer I got the portable equipment was not the Summer I was actually able to use it! Almost a year after it was when I finally got the air conditioner system back plus running. I had to work longer hours at my job in order to afford the parts I needed for the machine. I needed to basically rebuild the cooling component from square one. Once every section was basically new, teh cooling system worked like a champ. My family and I really enjoyed that little portable air conditioner system. I set up the A/C component in the family residing room so that all the people would get to think the cold and crisp air, but now, everybody is a lot more well off. My parents have central A/C now plus I have a ductless air conditioner system unit. But, I still own that little portable A/C equipment that I fixed, we have a connection.
