The temperature dropped significantly during the evening, however the heat was still present, which made it uncomfortable for me to sleep.
When I chose to rent our new apartment, one of the greatest selling points for the place was that it had a brand new Heating, Ventilation & A/C system installed in the home office’s window to manage the apartment’s temperature control. Since I was living in a region whose summers frequently stayed over 90 degrees Fahrenheit, a functioning A/C was pressing, but having the new window AC, which could double as a furnace in the winter, made me believe secure that our comfort would be assured in the apartment. I soon discovered that, while the a/c being situated in the home office worked well during the daytime when I would use the proper areas of our home more, it was less convenient at evening when I was in bed. The temperature dropped significantly during the evening, however the heat was still present, which made it uncomfortable for me to sleep. It would have been extremely wasteful to run the air conditioner in our home just to keep our family room cool, since the A/C would also end up cooling all of the other rooms that weren’t being used at evening. After thinking things through, I decided to pay out of our pocket to purchase a ninth a/c for our apartment, although the ninth was used instead of brand new so I could save money, in order to have one mounted in our family room’s window. At eveningtime, I could turn off the A/C in our home office & turn it on in our family room, closing our family room door to trap the cool air & avoid wasting scarce energy, setting our previous worries to rest & solving our problem.
