The local hardware store in our town is having its annual fall sale this week, so my wife and I went down there to look at things for our little getaway cabin out at the lake. They always have some pretty good deals during this sale, and it’s a good time for them to have a closeout on their summer stuff. I ended up saving more than a hundred dollars on an open-package chainsaw. After some of the storms this year I was sure I would need it out at the lake to clear dead trees. One of the things we were able to get for the cabin was a couple of window mounted air conditioner units. We sometimes spend a week or so in the summer at the cabin, so be able to cool it off is a blessing. These little units are really easy to install and are really efficient. All you have to do is set it in an open window, install the side baffles as necessary, close the window on top and plug it in. There is no routing of ducting or vents, and if you want to use it somewhere else later, it is just as easy to remove and install elsewhere. As an added bonus, they also have heaters built in to them, so we should be able to use them all year long and keep the lake cabin nice and comfortable. We ended up getting a great deal on these two window units, and I can’t wait to get them out there and set up.
