Even though my parents have central AC in their home, they also have a window AC unit in their bedroom. They’ve had the big, chunky, white AC unit in their window for as long as I can remember. I remember the day they brought it home and I questioned them about it. I didn’t understand why they were installing a box into their window or how it was going to make their room colder. My parents instructed me to never touch the window AC unit because they didn’t want me changing the settings. Fast forward to the present day and that window AC unit is still there and as mysterious to me as ever. Of course, I understand how it works and the purpose of it, but I still don’t understand why my parents chose that. I asked my dad if he had ever heard of a ductless mini system, because I thought it would be a better way to cool their room. He hadn’t heard of the ductless mini system before, so I pulled up an online search that explained what it was in detail. The website talked about how energy efficient they were, how they were less noisy than window AC units, and they were more modern. The price was slightly higher than a window AC unit, but not by much. By the time my dad was done reading the website, he was ready to make the switch and purchase a ductless mini system for the bedroom! I think they’re really going to love it.
