Let’s talk about A/C units. What is so special about them? Well, for example, try asking that question again if the unit breaks in the summer or winter. As a matter of fact, that is exactly what happened to me this year! It was not fun and it was unexpected.

First of all, it broke a few months ago in the summer. Secondly, heat rises very easily in my home. Therefore, without some type of cold air, it could get to 80 degrees in my bedroom. I can’t sleep in that heat! My family, especially, don’t deserve to live in those conditions. I needed to replace my A/C unit. but I needed a quick fix in the meantime. So I went to Home Depot.

Once at Home Depot, I looked for a portable A/C system. To my surprise and delight, I found many. On top of that, once I installed them, I found out they worked extremely well. The room, if I wanted, could become very cold. There was a soft hum coming from the unit. Back that did not bother me too much. I was happy sleeping in a cool room while it was hot outside. That was good enough for me.

I think sometimes we take our technology for granted. A simple unit such as an A/C unit becomes very important when it doesn’t work. When it does work properly, we don’t think much of it. As a society, I think that we, as a whole, should be more thankful for what we have, technology-wise. 100 years ago, we did not have the simple luxuries we have today. Even today, much of the world does not have these types of technologies available for them. That is slowly changing, however. And it’s changing for the better.
