Yes, I know. I've had one for ~30 years. Actually, if it's only 105 or less
it will work at a bit highers %s. At least for me - reasonable heat doesn't
bother me that much/ I was raised in Chicago summers when the only A/Cs
were in movie theaters.
We've been there for a week or two.
You know it's time to clean the refrigerator
when something closes the door from the inside.
Hot and dry, not too hard in the shade. Used to go down to PHX
in my working days often taking whole family for a few months.
I wokred for Honeywell(only career I had after mil. service), so used to
go down there. Likewise it is cold and dry in winter up here, not
My old neighbor had some respiratory problem and on his doctor's
suggestion he moved to PHX. There his symptom got worse and had to move
back. I heard some pollen flying around in the desert was the problem.
Last year I had my wiring upgraded so that I could put in central air.
Now realize I will probably never add it since we rarely get more than a
few exceedingly hot days a year...and the windows A/C can handle that.
Most years the A/C never even gets put in.
Mine is under 20 years old and I maybe put it in the window every five
years or so.
I had one that was 40+ years old, that I put out for the metal
scavengers...It was one heavy SOB
the newer one is quite a bit lighter

I didn't get my first AC unit until I was in my 50s. When I was a kid
most everybody had coolers. We thought we were lucky to have them
because the old timers told of how in the old days they hung wet
sheets on the porch to stay cool.
