We had about 20% humidity today. Any extra water will get burned off by the condenser coils.
I wasn't going to pay $240 for a new one.
Some one I work with wants to buy my 3 or 4 year old window unit for $75 next pay day.
So total the new window unit will only cost $65.
I try to use them for 2 to 4 years then sell them and replace them with a brand new scratch/dent unit.
Instead of running them till they die, plus after a few years they lose efficiency and don't cool as well.
Last summer i was using all window units, I have replaced all window units with high efficiency inverter split heatpump units except in 1 room that is used for storage and guests.
Now the window unit will hardly get used.
I sold the other 2 window units as soon as it started to warm up a few months back.
The splits cost about $2,400. I got tired of noisy inefficient window units that barely cool the house.
