Today the weather lady is predicting temps will hit 90 degrees in Boston, 80 degrees here on Cape Cod. I have to test the old fans and see if they still run without grinding or making some constant nick.nick.nick sound as they spin in their cages.
I bought a brand new air conditioner a couple of years ago. The description on the box promised “Quiet, easy air flow. Sleep like a baby!” Of course the hype was just that: hype. I put it in the window of My bedroom, shut the windows and turned it on. Grrrrrrrrrriiiiiiinnnnd…..HUUUUUUUMMMMM. Too noisy for me to sleep. So I turned it off. With the windows still shut it took no time for the heat in the room to return. All night long I danced between the air conditioner on, windows closed, air conditioner off, windows open. I think I finally fell asleep at 5 in the morning.
I took the machine out of the window and have never used it again. It would be good to use in a room for a dog or a cat. Not meant for human use.
What about you? Got central air? Want a visitor for the summer?
