We do not have central air conditioning throughout our house, so we use window air conditioning units during the summer months.
It only gets really hot here from June through the beginning of September.
We have three window AC units that we use during the summertime. My husband and I have one in our bedroom, my daughter has one in her bedroom, and we have one downstairs in the living room. The one in the living room keeps most of the downstairs cool. Unfortunately, I broke my daughter’s air conditioner today. I was so disappointed in myself. My husband installed the air conditioner in her window in a rush last week, and he installed it a little crooked. I am a little OCD, so I wanted to make it straight. No one was home at the time, so I had to do it by myself. I should have waited for my daughter to get home, but I was too stubborn to wait for help. The air conditioner was old, so it was really heavy. I opened the window up all of the way while I was trying to get it set in there straight. Somehow, I ended up dropping the air conditioner out the window. I caught it by the cord for a second, but it ended up slipping out of my sweaty hand, and the air conditioner fell to the ground. It was from an upstairs window of course, so there was no way that it survived that fall. It broke into several pieces. My husband and I gave our daughter our air conditioner for the time being, but we will have to buy a new one for us soon.
