Personal HVAC systems.

Shortly after we took her son to college and got him settled in the dorms we got a phone call from him complaining about his accommodations.

  • We did warn him ahead of time that the dorms were not the most comfortable place to live but it was the most practical considering that he was two states away.

It was his freshman year so he was required to stay in the dorms and was not allowed to have a car on campus so he really didn’t have any other choice. When we learned the reason for his complaint we had to kind of laugh because when we went to college there was no such thing as air conditioning in our rooms. Apparently each student at the University was allowed to bring in their own personal HVAC unit so that they could be comfortable during the warmer times of year. We were unaware of this when we first planned for his time in the dorm so we had never even thought to purchase one. Unfortunately he would have to wait until the next break during semesters for us to be able to meet up with him and purchase one. This didn’t make him happy at all but he was able to at least get a large box fan from the campus store. Before the break we were able to contact our local HVAC dealer and find out which unit was the easiest to install in our son’s dorm room. The windows were a little bit small so they recommended one of stand-alone units that had a small bar with the ventilation hose instead of one that sat in the window itself. Our son was very happy when we arrived with his new HVAC unit and of course a bunch of snacks.
