I remeber the old summers where my little house would heat up to 100 degrees and all my perishable foods would, well, perish. I would sit there, take all my cloths off until I was left in my whitey tighties and sweat like a pig. Then my girlfriend moved in. She couldn't stand the heat so I went out and got an air conditioner. This was a good investment I have to say! This thing can make my room so cold I need to wear jackets! It also keeps my computer cooler because everyone knows these babies can overheat and waste a large sum of money to either replace or repair. My girlfriend also loves this more than the one she has at home. Sure you have to find a window to install it but I don't think that's much of a problem because when summer's over, I can just take it out and not worry! It's also energy efficient which I love!
