Soaking up the Air Conditioning after a Fishing Tournament

I’m a recreational fisherman, and one of my favorite activities is participating in fishing tournaments. Fishing tournaments come in all shapes, sizes, and colors; usually the tournament fees benefit a non-profit organization, and the tournament will stipulate the species of fish that anglers should pursue. When I’m enrolled in a tournament, I’m usually staying at my river house. While most of the houses around it are lavish, this home has been in my family for generations, and it is humble and cozy. Since fishing tournaments usually take place in the summer, it’s integral that my homey river cottage is well-cooled and ventilated once my day on the water is complete. While the home was originally built with no air conditioning (I have lots of respect for my great-grandparents!), my grandparents installed window units in the 1980s. The window A/C units served our family well for some time; my parents even replaced a few of them with updated models when I was a teenager, which definitely improved the situation. But, once the house was completely under my purview, I decided that I was done enduring the hotspots that the window A/C units missed; I hired a local HVAC contractor to install a full HVAC system in the river house. It was a one-stop shop; the HVAC technician asked me about my needs, and I was completely in control of the cooling equipment that was installed in the house. They installed vents exactly where I wanted them (there was one directly above my spot on the couch!) and the return and air filter were placed in a very convenient location. While I more than respect my grandparents’ decision to take the plunge and install window A/C units in the 1980s, I decided that I needed to bring my home into the 21st Century, especially for my post-tournament comfort.
