About six months ago I realized that we needed to do something to renovate our kitchen. It was old, outdated, and a little non-functional. I didn't know what to do to improve things, but a friend of mine mentioned that it might be smart to go through and replace the appliances. We started going shopping, and I realized that we needed to figure out where to get a great deal. We started combing through sales, and I actually got pretty good at snagging bargains. This blog is all about learning more about the latest appliance so that you can renovate on a dime.
Americans, as a nation, have become accustomed to enjoying a cool, comfortable environment in nearly every indoor space. They travel in air-conditioned cars, live in homes with central air conditioning, work in air-conditioned offices and factories, and attend classes in climate-controlled schools and universities. But not every cooling need requires a large central air conditioning system, especially those who live in a rural area or those who frequently participate in outdoor activities. In fact, cooling needs associated with outdoor living and activities are much more easily handled with the use of a small, inexpensive window or portable air conditioner.
Prepare to Glamp in Comfort
Outdoor lovers who enjoy camping, but only if it includes some of the comforts of home, can enjoy tent camping more fully when they bring along a portable room air conditioner. These small units can be placed inside a tent and connected to an available 120-volt electrical supply furnished by the campground or plugged directly into a small gas generator. Because these small units are typically very lightweight and compact, they can be transported along with camping supplies and then used as needed when camping (or glamping) in hot or humid weather.
Prolong Produce Shelf Life
Growing a garden of food, herbs, or flowers is an annual ritual for many families who choose to make their home in the country. This activity provides an excellent chance for parents to teach children how to grow food and enjoy nature, including how to harvest and preserve the bounty for later use.
Unfortunately, many fruits and vegetables ripen in large quantities, making it difficult for a busy home gardener to preserve it all before it becomes overripe. By installing a room air conditioner in a small shed, garage, or outbuilding, home gardeners can use the cooled space somewhat like a large refrigerator, effectively buying them more time to work on preserving the fruits of their hard work.
Preserve the Spoils of Hunting
The tradition of an annual family deer hunt is something that many look forward to each year. But part of the home butchering process for any deer harvested requires allowing the skinned, gutted animal to hang in a cool environment so the meat can age and tenderize. Since most homes do not have a convenient space where a deer carcass can hang for several days of aging, using a portable air conditioner in a small shed can be an inexpensive way to create a meat aging chamber whenever the need arises.
Because there are many models and types of small air conditioners available, plan to take time to discuss your small air conditioner needs with a reputable appliance sales professional before making your selection.Share
