The Best Way To Keep Your Apartment Warm

images-1We are well into fall with November just around the corner and hey, we are no fools – we know what comes next – the cold.
So why are we being downright cruel by reminding everyone of the inevitable frigid temps when the weather is still pleasant and mild?
Because now is the time to remove those window air conditioning units to make sure your apartment will be warm and cozy when the temperatures do start to drop.
Why go to the hassle of removing those A/C units you ask?
Because it is the number one way to ensure your apartment will be warm during the cold weather.
When window units are not removed and the storm windows not properly closed it’s like leaving a window wide open.  Brrr…
So just follow these simple tips and removing your unit will be a breeze:
  • Wear a long sleeve shirt to protect your arms.
  • Enlist a friend for help if you think you’ll need some extra muscle.
  • Make sure to wear sturdy shoes.
  • Have a screw driver, drill and old towel ready.
  • Unplug the unit.
  • Remove the A/C’s front panel and set aside to better grip the unit.
  • Lay the towel on the floor right below the unit.
  • Check out your window and make sure no one is directly below.
  • Stand on the A/C’s power cord just in case.
  • Firmly hold (here is where a friend comes in handy) unit and begin to unscrew.
  • When all the screws are out lift the window pane (Once again, a friend is a plus at this point).
  • Carefully remove A/C unit and place on a towel on the floor.
  • Close the storm window/actual window.
  • Woot, woot – you did it!!
Not only will you be warmer in your home but you will be helping Mother Earth by conserving energy as well!
