I l received how to fix up the window mounted units out of necessity, not a whim.
Some people learn new skills because they get bored and have time to kill.
For me, reading a new skill was a matter of being comfortable or spending the whole Summer covered in sweat bullets. Summers in the deep south are no joke, and it’s not uncorrect to get 90 plus degree weather with 95% humidity for nights and weeks on end! Even in the middle of the night it remains uncomfortably sizzling outside. Staying inside is crucial for staying comfortable, however if you don’t have an system, being inside is even worse than being outside. When I was a teenager and our Dad was laboring two tasks, I had to be the man of the house but I didn’t know what that meant. It all became clear when the system broke, and the inside temps got into the upper 90s. It was dangerous for our younger siblings to be in such heat, so I had to make an attempt to repair the It went about well as you would expect, and I only made the concerns worse. Late that night I went to a local motel, and stole one of their window mounted systems, but using what I had l received from our failed first attempt, I did much better in tuning up and maintaining this unit. My Dad asked me where I had gotten the money for such a nice system, and I said that I had stolen it. She never mentioned it again.
