Is it safe to leave my window air conditioner on while I'm gone to work? I used to shut it off but I dread when I come home to a hot house and it takes forever to cool the house back down.

As long as the air conditioner is in good working order it's safe.

I leave my window ac on when I'm not home.

I set the temp I want and the compressor comes on when needed and shuts off when it's not needed.

When you shut your ac off and then turn it back on when you get home the window air conditioner has to work harder to cool off the room or house.
