This past weekend me and my father put in a new window AC unit in my back room. The back room had been plagued with air leaks from the old unit as well as not having good ventilation, so it would get a good ten degrees hotter and more humid back there this summer. Now that we have put the new unit back there its been nice and cool. Hopefully this will help me kill the huge electric bill by only cooling a part of the house and keeping the main house a little high.
When we took the old unit out of the window, we saw why it doesnt work anymore. It was FILLED to the brim with gravel and dirt, all of which Im sure was from Hurricane Rita and any bad storms we have had since then.
