I Do Not give up on AC
Window a/c units were nice in their day, plus some people in some areas still use them.
But as for myself and others personally, I have to say that I enjoy my central heating plus a/c idea over a window a/c equipment any day of the week! There are a few main reasons for this.
The first being, that a window a/c idea only cools a absolutely small area, depending on the power of the thing. If you have a absolutely large a single with great power, it can cool off an entire dining room, depending on the size of your home. Sometimes, it can cool both the living room plus the dining room. But where does that leave you for your dining rooms? That means you have to buy an additional window a/c equipment or 2. Then, depending on what kind of window a/c equipment you have, most of the time, you have to instal plus then detach that large heavy thing in the beginning of summer, plus then again at the end of summer. If you have bad back issues like me, lifting plus hauling those things can be quite a strain on you. I would rather deal with a absolutely light portable a/c equipment instead of a window a/c equipment today, if I didn’t have the luxury of my central heating plus a/c idea in my location! I suppose bad for those that are still stuck with window a/c units as their only source of cooling. Wouldn’t it be nice if everywhere had central HVAC?
