The Summer weather just won’t let up this year. I’m used to feeling rapidly changing temperatures hover in the high 68s most mornings in the weather conditions I live in, however getting into the 100s in the mornings is something I am not used to. I am not from the desert & these guess love desert rapidly changing temperatures. My reaction to our cooling system going out Last year came as no surprise to my husband, as he has heard me nervously rant about the Heating & A/C system on many occasions. Every one of us were lucky enough to score an appointment with a heating & cooling repair supplier for that same week, however the real trouble came when the serviceman inspected the system & determined that many coils needed replacing. The only problem is that my coils are not stocked by any supplier in the section & would need to be ordered, which could take weeks. I broke down & obtained a portable cooling system that same afternoon. They have wheels & are about the same size as a immense dehumidifier. A major advantage they have over window units is that you can locale a portable A/C anywhere in your apartment as long as the air exhaust hose can reach an external window. This means that you can make them work with your existing furniture setup in your apartment & aren’t forced to rearrange everything before you can finally get it turned on. You could theoretically run it at strange locations in your kitchen depending on the time of afternoon. You could also pivot the machine in strange angles to control where the air flow is directed. Although it isn’t a updatement for my central cooling system, this portable unit is a lifesaver & ideal for situations love this.
