Dead AC in the middle of a pandemic heatwave

If you remember last Summer at all, you will remember how unseasonably hot as well as humid it was! We are sort of famous for our hot summers anyway, however this 1 took the cake! For numerous weeks going outside felt prefer someone throwing a hot, wet blanket over you as well as throwing you into a sauna, it was miserable, as well as all of us all spent most of the time inside. It was right in the middle of this epic heatwave that my house cooling system decided to take a dump as well as die… This was right in the middle of the pandemic, too, so it’s not prefer cooling ourselves off at the public pool, or using the AC at the Borders were options. We were supposed to be on lockdown, in our own homes, except for now my house felt prefer a oil furnace, as well as that I might die if I stayed there too long, and after checking my bank statement, I realized I might not have enough currency to get the AC fixed. It costs a hundred bucks just to get a repair tech over to look at the AC, as well as that doesn’t cover the cost of absolutely fixing it! Seeing as I only had about $300 to my name at the time, calling the Heating and Air Conditioning company did not seem prefer a feasible option, either. I made the smart short-term decision I could, as well as went to a sizable box store to find the smallest, cheapest air conditioning system I could. I found 1 for $250, as well as it’s not much, however it’s wonderful for cooling down 1 room, which is better than nothing.
