New aircon ...

So my air conditioner finally went kaput on Sunday. It started making loud noises on a frequent basis and refused to cool the room. In fact, it got stuck on 88 degrees Farenheit; my non-air-conditioned rooms were cooler than my bedroom!

I was able to sleep for just 4 hours or so as a result; it's difficult to sleep while sweating in the heat plus the lovely Guam humidity.

So Monday meant a lunch hour spent driving to Home Depot in a crazy downpour and loading the thing into my trunk. After work I had just about a half hour to lug it upstairs, unbox it, take the old air conditioner out of the hole, then set up the new unit so I could be ready for my World of Warcraft raid.

That left me sore and hurting (it was pretty heavy, as was the old one, and I did it all myself) and sweaty, but at least my bedroom is once again cool. Heck, with the rainy weather out right now, it's actually chilly and cold!

Hello comforter!!

Wow, I’m impressed that you were able to take apart your old air conditioner and install the new one in just thirty minutes! Well, installing an air conditioner is a simple task, but you have to be precise with your measurements. An improperly installed air conditioner can cause it to fall, and that would damage the unit; or worse, it could hurt someone.

Amazing! You did all the replacing yourself? How did you do that? How I wish I can do stuff like that myself so that I don’t have to hire professional services to do them for me. Good job!
