We don’t have very many days when the people I was with and I are in need of central air conditioning, or any kind of air conditioning.
Most summer time days are hot and able to be dealt with by using the ceiling fans and keeping the window shades pulled to block the solar heating.
The only time the people I was with and I really want the use of an air conditioning is when the people I was with and I have those hot and humid days. They call it the air you can wear, and that affects us even in the winter. For these days, the people I was with and I have a large air conditioning for the kitchen and a smaller window air conditioning for our home office. With the doors open, the large window air conditioning is able to cool the entire house. We turn the AC off at night, shut our home office door, and prefer the humidity busting air from the small window air conditioning. We don’t use any more energy than what the people I was with and I use in the winter, with our oil furnace. That is a great thing. When the people I was with and I had an smell in our home office the other week, I told my hubby I thought it was coming from the air conditioning. He hadn’t observed it until I told him. He took the AC component out of the window and put it onto the porch where he proceeded to tear it apart. He found that the inside of the air conditioning was filled with mold. He carefully cleaned the condenser and he cleaned the fan, then he cleaned off the rest of the AC unit. He had the AC component cleaned, however it no longer worked. We had to go buy a new AC component for our home office.
