I was a bit naive when I thought I could just get by with a fan when I moved into my own apartment.
The apartment had a heating system for the winter months, but no form of cooling system whatsoever.
I remember when I was in the spring and it was nice being able to open the windows for a nice breeze. Then when the summer came, it became so overheated that I couldn’t even relax in the apartment. I don’t know what I was thinking, but I ended up asking my parents if I could borrow some money for a window AC unit. They were reluctant to give me the money, but I went straight to a local HVAC supplier and got a pretty nice window AC unit. While it was disappointing to lose the nice view from the window, I realized that was the best window to hold the window AC unit. I was so happy when I got the thing installed and working. That cooling air just filled the apartment in no time and suddenly, I was able to relax in my apartment again while focusing on my school studies. I couldn’t imagine having gone any further without that cooling system, I don’t know if I could have survived. I probably would have suffered from a heat stroke in my own apartment or something without a property cooling unit like the one I got. I ended up trying to pay my parents back for the money they lent me, but they said I could keep it and consider it a college gift.
