I have no need for a whole-home cooling system.
- The summer season in my local area doesn’t last long enough for such a big investment.
Sometimes, the entire summer is chilly and wet with gray skies. Even when the weather is especially hot and humid, my family spends most of our time outside. We swim in the pool, play in the yard, work in the garden, lay in the sun and barbecue for dinner. The biggest concern is the bedrooms becoming overheated and sticky, making it just about impossible to sleep at night. I solved that problem with window air conditioners. I was fortunate to buy cooling units for each of the bedrooms on sale from one of the local home improvement stores. The air conditioners are wonderfully compact, lightweight and they installed easily into the windows. We store them in the attic over the winter and carry them downstairs when the weather warms up. It takes less than five minutes to situate the cooling units, plug them in and start them up. They easily maintain a comfortable temperature in the bedrooms. Even on the hottest and most humid summer nights, we enjoy a cold environment for sleeping. I definitely sleep better with the air conditioner running. The operational sound is fairly quiet but loud enough to drown out exterior noise pollution. I’m not bothered by traffic, road construction, barking dogs or early morning birds. I can easily make adjustments to the fan speed, temperature and access all the various features by way of a cordless remote. Plus, the air conditioner circulates and filters the air, removing dust and other contaminants.
