If you have ever tried to install an AC unit yourself, you know how hard it is to do on your own.
The reason that it’s so hard is because the AC unit is so heavy and you can’t really hold it on your own.
I tried to do it on my own once when my old central heating stopped working, but I ended up dropping it out of the window. I luckily didn’t hurt anybody when I dropped the AC unit, but it could have been much worse. Another reason that it helps to have a friend with you when installing a window AC unit is so that they can point out to you when there is not an outlet around. One of the first times I installed my own AC unit I did everything only to realize that there was no plug in sight. When I tried to plug the AC unit into a power strip I almost burned the house down when a small electrical fire started! It’s safe to say that I shouldn’t be anywhere near HVAC equipment. The funny thing is that when I was younger I really wanted to be an HVAC technician. Now I am perfectly happy having friends help me with my HVAC equipment, or getting a trained professional to help me. I have only called a professional HVAC business one time, and that was when I really couldn’t figure out what was wrong with my heating and cooling system. I hope to eventually learn more about HVAC so that I never have to rely on paying somebody.
