Every summer the fella lugs the window units into the dining room and our bedroom. I know they’re ugly and horrible, but I kind of like falling asleep to the hum of an old fashioned window unit. What I can’t stand about them is they block so much light. So as soon as it starts to get even remotely cool out I demand the air conditioner be removed and banished to the basement again.
The other problem with window units is you have to remove your window screens for them to fit in. So every fall after the window unit comes out I trudge outside with all my screen replacing equipment and get to work putting a screen back in the window.
