I am totally cheerful with window air conditioners.
- I have no need to make a much larger investment into a central cooling system.
I live in the northern section of the country, where the winter season weather is the priority. My home is equipped with a boiler boiler that is powerful enough to handle outside hot and cold temperatures down to negative twenty-five degrees. I expect to raise the thermostat by the end of October and rely on the boiler for approximately eight months. It seems to take forever for the snow to finally melt and the robins to show up. I watch for the first signs of daffodils, tulips and hyacinths. I’m always really eager to shut off the boiler, open the windows and introduce some fresh air into the home. I have no desire to close the windows a month later, turn down the thermostat and start paying an high-priced electric bill, however during the Spring, Summer and fall, I spend every possible moment outside. I like to go for runs, hikes and bike rides. I kayak, swim and paddleboard. I care about laboring in my gardens, lying in the sun with a book and barbecuing. The only time the boiling and sticky conditions of the home are a concern are at night. It would be impossible to get a fantastic night’s sleep without some type of cooling option. The boiler doesn’t allow for central air conditioner. I don’t mind because I’ve purchased a couple of window air conditioners. I picked them up at a local home improvement store for a couple of hundred dollars. They are lightweight, compact and easy to install into the window.
