Every one of us don’t have certainly several afternoons when the two of us are in need of central a/c, or any kind of a/c.
Most summer time afternoons are warm & able to be dealt with by using the ceiling fans & keeping the window shades pulled to block the solar heating. The only time the two of us certainly want the use of an air conditioner is when the two of us have those warm & humid afternoons. They call it the air you can wear, & that affects us even in the winter. For these afternoons, the two of us have a giant air conditioner for the study room & a smaller window air conditioner for our study room. With the doors open, the giant window air conditioner is able to cool the entire house. Every one of us turn the A/C off at night, shut our study room door, & prefer the humidity busting air from the small window a/c. Every one of us don’t use any more energy than what the two of us use in the winter, with our furnace. That is a wonderful thing. When the two of us had an smell in our study room the other week, I told my partner I thought it was coming from the air conditioner. He hadn’t noticed it until I told him. He took the A/C equipment out of the window & put it onto the porch where he proceeded to tear it apart. He found that the inside of the air conditioner was filled with mold. He carefully cleaned the condenser & he cleaned the fan, then he cleaned off the rest of the A/C unit. He had the A/C equipment cleaned, but it no longer worked. Every one of us had to go buy a new A/C equipment for our study room.
