I found this message, but I am not very sure if it is correct entirely.


"This classroom is too hot. It is correct to put an AC in here."



I think we should change the word correct ,and instead, use a different word.
d'oh!

"Correct" seems a bit stilted here.

A suggestion:

This classroom is too hot. We need an AC.
This classroom is too hot. We should install an AC.
This classroom is too hot. Why don't we set up an AC?

FYI... if you are actually writing or speaking "AC" rather than "air conditioning", then omit the article ahead of it, please.

We should install AC.
We need AC in here.
Why don't we set up AC.

Or -

We should install an air conditioner.
We need an air conditioner in here. Or -- We need air conditioning in here.
Why don't we set up an air conditioner?
