Despite this being one of the coldest May months in the history of the greater Vancouver area, I bought my parents a portable air conditioner, which should be arriving on Monday.
The heat dome of last summer caught a lot of people off-guard and many want to be prepared for whatever may happen this summer. I think my parents will have their A/C unit in the living room to begin with but we might move it to their bedroom if they need to be cool while they sleep.
An interesting thing about my parents’ home is that there are several flights of stairs between the living room and their bedroom, so getting that heavy A/C unit might easier if they wheel it out their front door, wheel it through their parking garage and then go into home through the parking garage entrance, which is closer to their bedroom.
Are any of you first-time owners of air conditioners for this summer?
