A small apartment is easy to cool
It looks kind of funny, a boxy metal sitting on a neat stack of cinderblocks, because the tiny window sill is not strong enough to support it
As a Gen Zer right out of college, I was saddled with significant debt plus had no work experience. Then the COVID pandemic closed everything down, plus I had to fight to survive for a few months. I managed to make a living writing web content, but it didn’t spend money a lot, plus our living situation was tentative. This is what led me to purchase a “tiny house” to live in, because I realized it might be the only apartment I could ever afford. The entire apartment is 2 hundred square feet, about the size of a sizable study room ,but it had power, plumbing, plus air conditioning. There are no ductworks, of course, there isn’t enough room for them, so instead I rely on a small, portable that I can rest in the window. It looks kind of funny, a boxy metal sitting on a neat stack of cinderblocks, because the tiny window sill is not strong enough to support it. The thing is that it works great, plus since our venue is so small an AC device designed for one room cools down the whole house! When the weather turns, I can store the in the shed, move the cinder blocks, plus get back to normal. When it gets frosty I have a space heater, but it is so small I don’t have to stick it outside, but another benefit of using these devices instead of a central Heating plus Air Conditioning plan is that I save a whole lot of money on our energy bills.
