Window AC / August 26, 2018 / Denise Brisette
A window air conditioner in my opinion is a last resort for air conditioning your house or building. There are many down sides to window air conditioning units. There are two good things that window air conditioners have going for them. They are very inexpensive when it comes to cost per BTU of cooling. They also install very quickly and easily. That is where the good part of them ends. Window air conditioners are security risks. If a thief wants to get into your house the thin sheet metal box that holds the unit in the window can easily be pulled apart to get in through the window.
Window air conditioners are the most common type of air conditioning units. It is also the most cost-effective solution of the microclimate problem though its the oldest one. One unit combines all the elements: compressor heat exchanger and fan. To choose the right window air conditioner to define the most appropriate type of device the manufacturer and consider all the requirements moreover to have the quality meeting the price you should consult a specialist.Though you can find the optimal solution by yourself having taken a rapid glance at your house.
To help make that decision more clear I will explore some of the positives and negatives of the two major options. Ductless split type units are also becoming more of an option. I will do another article on that option. To include that in this article would just be more confusing. So for now we will just look at window air conditioners and central air conditioning. Central air conditioning is the best way to go if you already have a central hot air heating system already installed in your house or building. The advantage that you have is that you already have the air handler or blower part already installed.
