In the area where I live, the winter season is the priority.
We typically accumulate over ten feet of snow and endure eight months of extremely cold weather.
It’s not usual for the temperature to drop down to negative twenty-five, with a dangerous windchill, and the furnace supports a strenuous demand. I spend a fortune on heating bills and look forward to getting outside when the weather warms up. The last thing I want to do is keep the windows closed tight, run a central air conditioner and pay high electric bills. The spring season is usually cool and rainy and the summer season is short. However, the temperature can climb into the nineties and high humidity can be brutal. I’ve solved the problem by purchasing portable air conditioners for the bedrooms. By waiting for sales, I was able to get quality cooling units for under two hundred dollars a piece. The air conditioners are lightweight and easy to install into the windows. They are compact enough that storage over the winter isn’t a problem. Despite the small size, the air conditioners are quite powerful and sufficiently handle the demands of a single large room. It’s helpful that the portable air conditioners are programmable and wifi accessible. I’m able to set up a schedule so that the cooling system automatically starts up shortly before bedtime and creates a comfortable sleeping environment. I can easily make changes to temperature settings, fan speed and run times through an app on my phone. Plus, these air conditioners actively filter out dust and other allergens, creating a healthier and cleaner sleeping environment.
