Whenever my grandparents come to visit me, they always have some sort of gift.
Usually it’s something from a garage sale. One time they got me an old school bike that I hardly ever ride. This last time, they got me a couple of window AC units. Even though I told them that I didn’t need those cooling units, they insisted that they could come in handy. They said it was smart to have backup cooling systems for those times when my central cooling system might break down. I saw they had a good point there, but the thought of using those old window AC units made me cringe. I know the SEER ratings are not very good on those and it would cost me a small fortune to try to keep parts of my home cool in the summer season, especially if the central cooling system failed. Well, it’s crazy because this summer season, my central cooling system actually did fail on me! You should have seen how fast I went running to the attic to get those window AC units that my grandparents got for me. The house was so overheated and the HVAC company said it would be a few days for an expert to come out to repair the cooling system. Surprisingly, those little window AC units really cranked out the cooling and I was extremely comfortable in my kitchen and in my living room. Then during the nights, I moved one of the cooling units to my bedroom so I could easily sleep through the night. I had to call my grandparents to tell them that I used their window AC units and they really did save me when my central cooling system broke down.
