I am consistently afraid that I am going to trip & have the air conditioner either fall to the ground or fall on my foot.
I wish that I would have purchased a central air conditioner. If I wouldn’t have allowed my best friend to try to tell myself and others that window air conditioners were better because you only had to cool the room that you are in, then all of us would be enjoying a working central air conditioner in my apartment right now. Window air conditioners are perfect for the family that does not have the money for a central air conditioner however still wants to care about the cool air from a cooling Heating, Ventilation & A/C unit. I had the cash to purchase a central air conditioner, however my best friend told myself and others that it would be cheaper to purchase window air conditioners & to only cool one room at a time. Unfortunately for me, I never realized that window air conditioners are much more costly than central air conditioners if you are using them every day. Furthermore, I never took into consideration the fact that window air conditioners should be installed & uninstalled quarterly. I barely have room in my attic for 5 window air conditioners, & it isn’t easy attempting to carry a window air conditioner up a flight of genuinely flimsy stairs every September. I am consistently afraid that I am going to trip & have the air conditioner either fall to the ground or fall on my foot. Trying to take the air conditioners back down in the Springtime is even more difficult. It is nearly impossible to balance that much weight while traversing down the steps. Then, you have to try to lift the air conditioner into the window & get it set up in there so that it won’t topple out. I wouldn’t have to worry about this if I would have purchased a central air conditioner.
