When I moved from our hometown up North to a current town in the south, I had no plan how much I’d need central A/C.
- I purchased a lake house without noticing the lack of central AC, & I regretted it from the moment I moved in.
As I was unpacking boxes, I went to find the thermostat to turn on the AC, however when I couldn’t find a thermostat, I knew I was in deep trouble. Instead, I found a few window A/C units in several of the rooms. I couldn’t recognize that I’d never noticed the large, bulky, window A/C units while I was touring the house! I’d never had a window A/C unit before, so I had to teach myself everything about them. Once I plugged the window A/C unit into the wall & turned a few switches, the A/C unit roared into gear. It was so loud & it began to shake a little. Once I was confident that it wasn’t going to blow up, I found another window A/C unit & did the same thing, then with all the window A/C units running, our house was loud & obnoxious & I could barely hear myself think. I made the window A/C units work for me while I was in the fall & winter, however when the southern summertime heat arrived, I knew it was time to replaceâ€¦ No matter how low I set the temperature or how often I ran the A/C units, our house was regularly humid & uncomfortable. I contacted a local HVAC worker about installing central A/C & made plans to have it installed before the heat became unbearable.
