We living in an older home. It was built in 1927! It’s well built but overall I don’t think the previous occupants did much to change the home. It’s heated with oil so we have an old oil furnace and of course that means no built in air conditioning. I’m sure we could add air conditioning but I think we’ll be replacing the furnace soon anyway so we might as well wait.
So … we use window air conditioners to keep our house cool in the summer. Unfortunately when my husband put them in earlier this month during the heat wave that we had here we discovered that one of the air conditioners (the cheapest one we bought) was no longer producing cold air. It worked more like a fan instead. We figured that the ac compressor is probably shot.
Since it was a cheap unknown brand air conditioner we decided that rather than try to repair it we’d just replace it with a new one so we bought a new air conditioner this weekend. Good price too. Luckily it’s cool here right now because we still haven’t installed the new air conditioner. The other one will cool the house, but two work better for this house.
Does anyone else still use clunky heavy window air conditioners?
