This Summer I have seen a higher amount of people using portable air conditioners plus I’m not sure why. I wonder if people just can’t afford to get their central air conditioners fixed, or even if the costs of running the air conditioner is too high to sustain through this intense Summer heat. I started to wonder how portable air conditioners honestly worked plus if they easily helped people save on energy bills. Apparently, portable air conditioners are set up through a window vent idea so that boiling air can be expelled from the room plus cool air stays within the room. I was under the impression that portable air conditioners had no other features in them which makes them a honestly temporary cooling option. However, I l earned that they have dehumidifiers built into them because they have water reservoirs to hold the water from the air. It’s substantial for the reservoir to be emptied out constantly or else the dehumidifier feature won’t work officially. It is still pretty concerning to me that so more than 2 people are relying on this temporary option to keep them cool this summer. The CEO of our local energy corporation sent out a mass email describing how so more than 2 people are suffering with the costs of their energy bills this summer, plus sitting out what steps they are taking to help the community. People don’t think that global warming is real, however the two of us are seeing the direct effects through our weather right now. There is no perfect weather in our section anymore. It’s either way too boiling or way too cold.
