We haven't been experiencing a whole lot of sunny days since we've arrived in Strathmore, but the few we've been graced with have been scorching hot. Rumours of a hot sultry summer have been coming down the pipe from my mom so the Mr. and myself figured a purchase of a new air conditioner was in order. We purchased a mobile unit that sits inside your room and vents through a variety of different sized window openings. We fired it up last night, even though it wasn't really that hot, it was nice to take it for a test drive. Just as you expect, I gave it both thumbs up. It was much quieter than our other window mounted unit (keeping in mind that our old unit was 4 years old!) and you can set the exact temperature that you want the room to be at, which is nice. Our old unit had three settings, fan, arctic, and antarctic. We spent three times more on the mobile unit but it was the best option while we are renting. After experiencing the last 4 summers sleeping through air conditioned nights, I don't think I could ever go back. As a matter of fact, I'm thinking of hauling the thing to my Parent's house when we visit during the summer.... or just get them to buy one!!
