I’d never considered investing in central air conditioner until last summer.
- In my local area, the Summer season is usually brief.
Both of us constantly rely on the gas furnace until sometime in April. It takes forever for the outside temperature to even hot up enough to open the windows & let in some fresh air! After the long, sub-zero & snowy winters, I adore the break from paying enormous energy costs. Both of us often experience wet & cold summers, and even when the weather is hot & humid, it doesn’t last longer than a couple of weeks. A few box fans & window air conditioners in the home offices are sufficient. However, last year was truly different. The temperature climbed into the eighties in early March, & the humidity was brutal. The box fans & window air conditioners couldn’t keep up. Expecting an especially lengthy, hot & sticky summer, I called to get an quote on central air conditioner. I called numerous bizarre HVAC suppliers around the local area. They all told myself and others that they were solidly booked for appointments until the end of June. I ended up going ahead with the project. It was a truly long wait to finally get a central air conditioner installed. Every day the weather was extremely hot without even a hint of a breeze. I couldn’t get comfortable or sleep soundly at night. There was constant moisture running down the window panes & issues with mold growth. I took numerous cool showers per day. It was such a relief when the cooling system was finally installed & operational.
