The weather is finally over 60 degrees and many of us are looking toward summer. Staff is beginning to see air conditioners arrive via mail and we know how warm your homes get in the summer months. Before you hit Amazon or Lowes for a quick fix, use the information below to find out the type of air conditioning unit which is encouraged at Canal Station.
Everyone agrees that air conditioners are a beautiful invention; some are more beautiful and safe than others. The kind that hangs in the window (like the one to the above right) is not only unsightly, but can be a hazard if not installed properly. This is why it is against the Community Rules to have this type of air conditioning unit.
The unit on the left has intake and exhaust hoses that fit right into your sliding glass doors (some models have these tubes that fit into your windows.) The benefit to these machines is three fold: not only are they more aesthetically pleasing from the building's exterior, but there's no chance that if bumped, it might fall on someone's head! The best benefit of all is that these air conditioners are completely portable and will fit in a closet or storage when not in use!
If you have questions about what type of air conditioner is (or is not) appropriate for use at Canal Station, check with Brian before making that purchase! Have a great Summer!
