Well, its nice to finally post, but I have a serious question that needs to be answered by someone. I really don’t know what to do.
Recently I’ve moved to New York, and as you may know, its gotten damn hot here in the past few weeks. I mean scorching. I live in a cheap apartment, but not a bad location. But here’s the layout of my room. I have a small room and then a window that leads to a ventilation shaft. That is there is an 8*8 square space between the buildings that is closed on all sides going up about 5 stories. its basically like the width of an alley that is closed on all four sides.
Well, yesterday I found an AC on the street. Its obviously not new, but I figured… hey , a free AC, I’ve been wanting one of those…So I plug it in and all and it works! so I figure that I might as well keep it and put it in my room.
Well, it so happens that my super lives right across the shaft and she couldn’t sleep last night because of it. My luck that the super lives there, and then even worse that she sleeps in that room of her house! So she said I couldn’t have it because she couldn’t sleep at night. There is supposedly some kind of rule against it too. But she mentioned that maybe I could get a smaller one that wasn’t as loud.
She also mentioned that the landlord was supposed to cut another window in this room, that would be okay for an AC. That sounded good, but I can’t wait on that to happen. Its really unbearable at the moment. I mean it would be okay if this airshaft actually drew a breeze ,but really its worthless.
She mentioned something that sounded really stupid. I saw she had posted a picture of some kind of fan that uses mist to cool the room off. I don’t know, but maybe its just me but that sounds like it would suck, just making the room more humid. I don’t think I’d like it.
If you guys have any suggestions, please tell me because I really don’t know what else to do. I have a fan but that helps little
