Window AC / August 31, 2018 / Aubrette Dumoulin.
Many people do not know how to set up a window air conditioner and therefore just allow their homes or offices to remain sweltering during the summer. Window air conditioners are great because they are the least invasive air conditioning systems to install and can very easily be turned off or removed as is needed. They are easy to put in and should come with descriptive directions and charts. However not all directions give little tips and tricks. The first thing you should do is make sure to install it during the day. Daylight will make it easier to see what you are doing so it does not fall out of the window and it will also keep bugs from entering while the window is open.
Equipped with remote control and electronic thermostat this is a very comfortable machine to operate and should handle bigger jobs perfectly. It is just another example of a highly rated GE window air conditioner. With so much competition in the manufacture and sale of conditioners there are certain models (we are not talking about cheap foreign manufactured models) which cost just a few hundred dollars. However better models cost more and provide better service. Even if you are aware of your requirement from an air conditioner there is always a dilemma as to which type of conditioner should a person choose.
Window air conditioners came to the market as a solution for people who couldnt afford or did not want central air conditioning. Because central air conditioning can be quite expensive and because many people live in small apartments central air is not for everyone. This led to the advent of window air conditioners. Window air conditioners have a hot coil and a chilled coil along with two fans. The fans blow air over these coils and they in turn suck away the heat and humidity from the room into the outside area providing clean cool air. The capacity of an air conditioner is measured in BTUs. So the size of the air conditioner plays a vital role in determining its cooling capacity.
A window air conditioner is supposed to stay in place. This is different from a portable unit which rests on casters so that you can roll it from room to room. In most cases however a window unit will provide better cooling at a lower price that what a portable air conditioner can offer. Moreover you can install a window unit in each room if necessary. By many estimates having two or three window units is still cheaper than investing in a central system. When you are choosing a window air conditioner it is a smart idea to take measurements of the room you plan to cool.
