This summer time I have seen a higher amount of people using portable a/cs and I’m not sure why.
I wonder if people just can’t afford to get their central a/cs fixed, or even if the costs of running the a/c is too high to sustain through this intense summer time heat.
I started to wonder how portable a/cs absolutely worked and if they entirely helped people save on energy bills. Apparently, portable a/cs are set up through a window vent system so that sizzling air can be expelled from the room and cool air stays within the room. I was under the impression that portable a/cs had no other features in them which makes them a truly temporary cooling option. However, I l gained that they have dehumidifiers built into them because they have water reservoirs to hold the water from the air. It’s crucial for the reservoir to be emptied out always or else the dehumidifier feature won’t toil officially. It is still pretty concerning to me that so many people are relying on this temporary pick to keep them cool this summer. The CEO of our local energy company sent out a mass text describing how so many people are suffering with the costs of their energy bills this summer, and laying out what steps they are taking to help the community. People don’t believe that global warming is real, however the people I was with and I are seeing the direct effects through our weather right now. There is no perfect weather in our area anymore. It’s either way too sizzling or way too cold.
