poor ventilation for HVAC unit

My grandfather is getting along in his years and sometimes makes some bad choices.

  • The only issue that he seems to have his with his memory but his overall health is still good.

Each of our family members take turns during the week stopping in to check on him while trying not to make him feel like we are hovering. Last week when it was my turn to stop in I was glad that I did because if I hadn’t there may have been a serious issue at his house. He had decided to purchase a portable HVAC unit that was able to do move from room to room because he wanted it in the living room during the day and in his bedroom at night. This was an excellent option for him however I don’t think that he understood the directions for using the unit. He must have thought it was similar to a fan and just plugged it into the wall without having it vented out of the window. When I arrived at his house and walked in I was met by wall of very warm air and a very angry grandpa. He was sitting on the couch extremely frustrated and couldn’t understand why the room was getting warmer instead of getting cooler. I immediately open some of the windows just to let in some fresh air while trying to figure out what the problem was. When I saw the portable HVAC unit I knew instantly that my grandfather had not followed the directions when installing it. Not only had he just plugged it into the wall, he hadn’t even connected to see ventilation hose, so I need Italy did both of these and within about 30 minutes the house was cool and comfortable. Without the ventilation hose going out the window the warm air that was removed from the environment was simply put back into the room so there was no way for the air conditioner to work properly.
