I converted a window a/c into a portable space heater one time to save my life.
I have been building and working on HVAC units almost my whole life. I worked as a heating and cooling customer service personnel, then I was a heating expert, then I became an a/c repairman, and most recently I have been working as an air conditioner and furnace builder and inspector. Since I have so many years of experience, you could say that I am an expert heating and cooling technician. It was last week that my knowledge and experience with a/c units made me much more prepared for what was about to happen over my weekend. I decided to take a trip to the arctic to explore. As an HVACv technician, I only get a vacation once a year because people are always needing their central a/c units and furnaces fixed. I decided this time to go for a hike in the arctic. One day during my exploration, I got lost close to nightfall. I found an old abandoned shack that I found refuge in. For some reason, there was a window air conditioner and a central air conditioner in the corner of the shack. I knew if I didn’t act quickly, my life as a heating and cooling expert would soon be over. I quickly took apart the central air conditioner and took some of the HVAC parts from it. Since there was no heating and cooling equipment at my disposal, I had to work with only a few a/c and furnace tools I had bought with me just in case. I was able to make a furnace out of the units and survive.
