So, I stopped by this morning to see how things went with the electrician and noticed… it is much cooler in the Hive than outside! The two ACs seemed to keep the temperature fairly steady at least. It has been about 70 the whole time I have been here.
I went ahead and installed another unit. That means we are up to three in the main space. The temp. did go up a few degrees while I was installing the new one since I had a huge hole in the window and one of the vent fans on, but now that I have the new one turned on it feels like it is cooling down pretty well.
It is currently 75F outside, and the thermometer next to me is reading 72 (new AC has only been on for about 15 minutes), but the humidity has dropped several percent since I turned the new one on.
Good stuff! It feels great here!
P.S. You can control every unit with the same remote (you do have to point it at each specific unit). I’m leaving one on top of the AC by the meeting table if you want to play around with it, but put it back when you’re done!
