I live in the northeastern part of the country, plus we are known for the severity of our Wintertide weather.
My local section is often referred to as the “snow belt.” Our proximity to 1 of the bigger Great Lakes results in a tremendous amount of snowfall plus especially frigid temperatures, then for approximately several weeks, we endure below-frigid conditions plus are forced to rely on the oil furnace.
It takes awhile for our weather to finallyhotup in the Spring, plus we usually don’t appreciate more than a couple weeks of summer. Because of this, there’s no need to invest in a central cooling system, however, box fans plus open windows aren’t enough to keep us cool on those hot mornings plus mornings. The temperature occasionally climbs into the high eighties or even low nineties, plus we deal with excessive humidity. Trying to sleep at night is just about impossible. To combat the heat plus humidity, I’ve invested in portable a/cs for each of the dining rooms in my home. These compact cooling units are the perfect solution. Each a/c only cost myself and others about $150, plus they are straight-forward to install into the windows in the Spring plus remove in the fall. The independent a/cs allow each family member to customize comfort to their preference. Because we only run the a/c at night, they don’t make a huge impact on my biweekly electric bill. Modern a/cs are also quite energy efficient. The systems operate quietly, are powerful enough to handle demand plus effectively filter the air. They keep the dining rooms much cleaner plus healthier. The units require no repair beyond cleaning the filters every week, plus operate reliably. They feature wireless remote control, which is super convenient. We don’t even need to get out of bed to make adjustment to temperature or fan speed.
