I bought and installed an air conditioner on Saturday. A lot of people here who I tell this to are quite shocked. Nobody believes air conditioning is worth it in Seattle.
But, there are several factors to consider:
- It's been getting hotter and hotter over the years during the summer in Seattle.
- I have a very low tolerance for high heat.
- All of my computers are in an unventilated attic, including my main workspace. They are definitely and demonstrably capable of overheating. rainonthewind's computer in particular has shown itself to be prone to overheating.
It's a window air conditioner. I have hopes of someday being able to build a soundproof enclosure for all of my computers with a hole in the side at window height just for the air conditioner. I'm getting tired of the high white-noise levels in my workspace.
