My sister had the idea of getting a mini-split AC.
Living in a new town was quite exciting for my sister and me. It felt quite liberating to be away from my abusive ex. But, I knew I had a long way to go to recover from the trauma. Every time I had tried to leave before, he always found a way to convince me to go back. Eventually, he beat me so badly that I wound up in the hospital. That’s when my sister said she had enough of seeing me suffer. She was moving away for work and wanted me to go with her. After getting better, I went to pick my things with the assistance of the police and moved away with her. The apartment we got was quite small and lacked proper air conditioning. But, it came with two bedrooms that were good for the rent price. In terms of air conditioning, we had to find an alternative because the one in the building kept failing. Upon inquiring, the building superintendent informed us that the air conditioner was old and on its last leg. But, the owner was dragging her feet and didn’t want to replace it at the moment. It wasn’t possible to stay in the apartment without an HVAC system, so we chose to look for an alternative. My sister had the idea of getting a mini-split AC. It was a good heating and cooling unit, but I was worried it would be expensive. We didn’t have much money to spend, and I was yet to get a job. But, after a quick search online, we got a good mini-split AC for half the price, thanks to an offer that the HVAC company had.
