Air Conditioning Q&A

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common disease of the lungs, resulting in difficulty breathing. The two main forms of COPD are chronic bronchitis and emphysema.

Most people with COPD usually have both bronchitis and emphysema together. Extreme heat or cold can make breathing difficult for a person with COPD. In the summer, when temperatures can reach uncomfortable levels, it is best to use air-conditioning to maintain a dryer, cooler climate. Caution should be used, however, to not make the indoor temperature too cold, as this will tend to exaggerate the condition.

An air conditioning window unit is a good idea depending upon where you live. In places like Florida, Arizona, Nevada, or Alabama, it would definitely come in handy if there isn’t already a free-standing unit that comes with the house. There are several places to purchase one. The most popular places would be Sears, Montgomery Ward, Target Stores, Walmart, and almost any hardware store around will carry them.

Be sure to check with the store manager’s to make sure that it’s the kind that will fit in the window at home. Some brands are better than others, obviously, but most will do the trick very well. Colors are usually white, but these units can also be found in black, silver, and gray. These units come with directions and are easy to install; just slide it in place, plug it up, and turn it on. Nothing could be simpler.

If the window air conditioner is too heavy to lift by myself into the window can I still cool my room?

How does the room air conditioner work?
A room air conditioner is an air conditioning unit on wheels that has a connection to the window through a tube. The end of the tube sucks in the air from the outdoors and the unit cools the air resulting in a cool and refreshed room.
