It took a few days for the order to arrive, so I had no choice but to sweat it out in the meantime.
When I first moved into my house, I didn’t really consider how it would feel to survive the summers without air conditioning. Because I moved in during the middle of the winter, I was more concerned with piling on layers and cranking up the furnace. While I knew that there was no central air conditioning, I had more immediate problems to focus on. Once I was settled in, I forgot all about the absence of air conditioning. I was warm and comfortable in my room, and that was all I cared about at the time. The past few weeks, the temperature has started to increase as a result of spring’s arrival. It was over eighty degrees for several days this past week. Not only was the house warm because of the warm weather, but my room was the hottest part of the entire house. I live on the third floor, so heat rises and gets caught in my room. Not to mention, there are a lot of windows in my room, which allows sunlight to further warm the room. As soon as I realized how hot and uncomfortable it was to sleep in the room like that, I realized I needed to make some changes. I ordered a window air conditioning unit along with blackout shades for the windows. It took a few days for the order to arrive, so I had no choice but to sweat it out in the meantime. As soon as the order arrived, I installed the window air conditioning unit. I put blackout shades on all the windows, and there was an immediate difference. My room is now shady and cool. The air feels fresher, and I am sleeping like a baby!
