Re: Fire+Water=Big Mess

I'm sorry to hear of your plight; fire & water damage compounds the problems. We had a bad water leak that went of for a month before it was discovered.

Re: window AC with storm windows?

I flush the front of the a/c with the original sash. I lower the storm window down to the top of the unit. Most of the outside vents are outside the storm window. Maybe a bit on the inside.
