Sometimes, while my daughter takes her afternoon nap, I like to sit downstairs and have some alone time. I take the monitor with me that has a video screen so I can watch her from the other room. On the screen, the temperature of the room she is in is also displayed. I noticed recently that the temperature in the room was quite higher than in the rest of the house. The temperature in my daughter’s room was nearly 80 degrees yesterday when the thermostat was set to 74. I began to wonder if this was due to the location of her room. Her bedroom is located directly over the garage. The garage is unbearably hot during the summer months, and we were almost to summer. I turned the fan on in her room and that seemed to help a little. After a few more weeks of monitoring the temperature in my daughters room, I decided that I wanted to purchase a portable AC unit for her room. I felt so bad for her! We were trying hard to keep her in her own room, but sometimes it was just too hot. The portable AC unit really seemed to help. The white noise from the portable AC unit also helped her to sleep through the night. I am happy that we decided to invest in the portable AC unit. We use it in other rooms in the house, as well. We have even transformed the garage into a home gym and decided to purchase a second portable AC unit for the garage.
