I feel a heatwave coming on. The past week the temperatures have been steadily increasing in my area. Already this year we have had record high temperatures here. The stores are completely sold out of A/C units. I was unlucky enough to wait, thinking the heat wouldn’t be so bad, and then wasn’t able to purchase even a window A/C unit for my home once the heatwave heat. Now I think there’s another one coming on and I still have no A/C for my house. I don’t want to endure that again. I think I may be able to find a used one. Since everyone seems to be buying up A/C units, it stands to reason that there may be some being offered for sale that still work fine, but are being replaced by newer models. I’d be okay with a nice, used A/C unit. Especially if it was from someone I know. Actually, my stepfather has a ton of stuff in his garage. I would bet money he has at least one old A/C unit in there that I could convince him to let me borrow. I think that’s what I’ll do. I have some time tomorrow to go over there and check it out. If that doesn’t work out, I know his good friend and neighbor next door is also a bit of a pack rat. I think he might have an air conditioner I could use if I can’t find one at my step-dad’s. That way too, I don’t actually have to buy an air conditioner. I don’t really use A/C so I’d be spending a whole lot of money to use the thing once or twice a year at most… It would be better for me to just borrow one when I need it from someone I know. Cheaper too.
