As tight-fisted as I can be, I broke down and bought a new AC on the 2nd day of summer. Not installed yet, but I slept like a baby knowing that a 56 pound Haier AC rested on the floor near my bed.
The challenge is now getting the thing in the window (?) without losing any fingers or letting the chunk of mettle fall 5 floors to the sidewalk below. I'm not very good with directions and I don't know any AC wizards so I'm open to suggestions.
I wonder if putting the thing in its place will end up costing me more money.
