    Hi,

    I'm about to get a second monitor for my home office. Unfortunately, one of the computer monitors will be directly in front of my AC unit (like 2 inches away). I wanted to know how damaging it would be to the monitor to have very cold air blowing into the back of it for hours at a time during the summer months. Also, is there anything I can do, such as put something behind the monitor to minimize the effects of the cold ac air if it is harmful to the monitor? While I would like to move the AC and the computer screen further away, it's not possible due to the size of the room and where the desk fits. Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    A/C should not matter. Heat would have more of an impact than cold, but even then, it shouldn't matter.

    Thanks for confirming and good to know. I wasn't sure about the monitor being directly in front of the A/C unit. From what I've read, most questions about the A/C usually involved the actual desktop (and not the monitor). In my case the mini-tower is under the desk and isn't directly impacted by the cold air from the A/C.

    Thanks, again.
