It seems like I can never get my room cool enough. I live in a two story house, and the two bedrooms of the home are both on the upper level of the house. I know that it stays warmer up there because the warm air rises and fills those spaces, but my A/C shouldn’t have such a difficult time overcoming that. Sometimes I even have a difficult time getting to sleep at night because it’s really uncomfortable for me when I get too warm. To fix this problem, I think that I’m going to go and buy a portable air conditioner soon. These are pretty small, box shaped units that can be placed anywhere in a home. I think that putting one next to my bed would be a great idea because it would keep some cool air blowing directly on me throughout the night. A friend of mine recently tried to dissuade me from getting one of these because they said that they tend to be noisy. That doesn’t seem like a problem to me because I like having some background noise while I’m sleeping. It’s comforting to me for some reason. My only concern is that the portable A/C might run my power bill up a little bit. It really shouldn’t be a long term solution for me. Instead, I should probably get an HVAC technician to see if there’s anything that can be done to make my A/C more efficient. Still, for now, I need a quick fix, so I’m going to give it a try!
