An HVAC question
Yes, and NYC is disgustingly prole, if you want to talk about the AC units that stick out from the windows, like a sore thumb. I don’t find this in Montreal, at least not prevalent in most areas.
They are an eyesore for people on the street, and make a horrible vibrating noise for the person living in the apartment. (That describes my crappy apartment, and as bad my crappy window AC is, not using it is worse.) They are found in old buildings constructed before the widespread availability of air conditioning.
Perhaps Yakov, our resident HVAC expert, could explain why better HVAC can’t be retrofitted into old buildings?
