A/C Update

Well, last night was night two with the new A/C unit. Here’s the deal so far. The new unit is one of those free standing variety of A/C’s on wheels. AC unit The manufacturer states that it is a super quiet model and really, it is much quieter than the old window unit in the hallway. The problem is, it’s now in my bedroom, next to my bed. I’m still very much a light sleeper and I do still wake up violently if disturbed on occasion… Cue the new little unit humming away… that at various points in the night changes modes with a random clunk or odd “thwip” noise… So far the unit has only been hit once. Oops…
Me, I’ve not had a full nights uninterrupted sleep since I installed it, but last night was much better… I suspect tonight will be a full nights sleep…
Over all , the unit does as advertised. It cools the room, it does it very efficiently, and is mostly quiet. (would be fine for people who are not paranoid sleepers) Last night I turned it on about 30 minutes before going to bed and it cooled the 86 degree room down to 74 in about 40 minutes. I like that this model doesn’t require me to drain the water tank. (It has a mister hose that spurts out the window) I wish the exhaust hose was a little longer so I could move it farther from my bed, but I think I can fix that with some creative furniture re-arrangement though.

  1. Oh, great . . . you thrash violently in your sleep? When you hear noise? I can see that you and I are NEVER bunking together on the European trip! Between my snoring and your random punching it will be a &*%#$ LONG ten days!
