If you look back to a previous entry I said I’d have window airconditioners this year and I’m absolutely thrilled to announce that I DO!
We had some electrical issues this year and actually spent almost four weeks without ‘real’ electricity. We had to use extension cords from a neighbor to have temporary lighting. But we lived through it, and – knock wood – we are back to semi-normal.
They suggested we shut off the swamp cooler as that seemed to be one of the areas where the lines were an issue. So once the lights came back on, I bought two window a/c units and they were installed successfully. Hubs wasn’t sure they’d work — but I’m pleased to announce that they work so well it’s amazing. Larger unit in the living room where he spends most of his days and a smaller unit in my bedroom/office is almost too cold most of the time.
That is not to say that the rooms in between — the kitchen specifically — aren’t warm and uncomfortable. But all things considered, it’s a darn side better than we’ve experienced in the last fifteen years.
Never take electricity and air conditioning for granted. It doesn’t just happen — and not everyone has it!
