Window air conditioners in the bedrooms is ideal solution
I live in an area that is known for the brutal winters. It is our longest season, with the cold weather typically lasting more than half the year. We regularly see temperatures below freezing, and it’s not unusual for it to drop down into the negative digits. The wind chill is positively brutal and we accumulate approximately eighteen feet of snow each year. My monthly heating bills are a drain on the budget. The furnace carries a very big workload and runs constantly, and the weather keeps my family trapped inside. By the time spring finally arrives, we are anxious to open the windows, welcome in a fresh breeze and spend some time outside. I’m delighted to lower the thermostat and get out from under such high monthly energy bills. We look forward to the sunshine and heat of the summer. The last thing I want to do is shut the windows, start up a central air conditioner and pay enormous electric bills. While we endure some high temperatures and humidity, we don’t spend much time inside the house. We only need to cool the bedrooms down at night. For us, the ideal solution is window air conditioners. For a little over a hundred dollars a piece, I was able to buy compact, lightweight and effective cooling units at the local home improvement store. It took me less than fifteen minutes to install them. The cooling units feature cordless remotes and allow us to adjust temperature and fan speed. We can even program the air conditioners to start up at a specific time.
