I can only get down to about 78. But that's tolerable. I really need some more BTU's for this extreme heat, but no heating or cooling system should be designed for the very worst weather.


Hannah, You won't get a through the wall AC at that $300 price...more like DOUBLE.

My bedroom was 84 degrees when I returned home on Monday (yesterday) after 3 days out of town. I turned on the bedroom a/c and the living room a/c and got it down to 70 degrees by the night time. I keep it colder at night than during the day since I prefer sleeping in cooler temps, but during the day I can tolerate temps that are more around 75 or so.

I don't live on the top floor, and I had kept my shades down while I was away, so that's probably why it was only 84 and not even hotter.

I can remember the days when the subway didn't have air conditioning. Just open windows and maybe a fan on the ceiling of the car in some really old cars.

Everybody was sweating. If you were sitting the people standing in front of you would be dripping sweat down. The open windows and the noise of the subway made my ears ring when I first started riding the subway it was so loud. This is also when there didn't seem to be any speed limit for the subway. They changed that one year after a few derailments, but at least the #4 train would whip around the corners so fast everyone in the car would be thrown around.

The good old days.

Jeez I remember growing up with a fan blowing hot air in my face while it rotated, if I had a pack of gum it would literally melt, now I can't have my central air above like 75 .

I was thinking that I need 12k BTU for my studio which would cool everything, including my walk-in closet and bathroom. It's a bit over 500 square feet.
