Window AC / August 30, 2018 / Marphisa Babin
Window air conditioners come in various sizes and it is important to choose the one that best fits the size of your room and needs of the user. The first thing to consider is to the rooms size. Using an climate control unit calculator or using the Energy Star chart for choosing a properly sized cooling appliance. For the average 150-250 square foot room youll need a climate control unit that has a capacity of 6000 BTUs. If you have rooms that flow into one another with archways or open doorways youll need to include the square footage of the adjoining room when calculating the capacity necessary to cool the area. Outside of square footage it is important to consider the climate of the room you wish to cool with an air conditioner.
When cooling such a device reduces the humidity in the room. There are certain advantages in it for example in a hot afternoon or after rain when the humidity reaches its maximum 100% and the dehumidification is up to 30-60% it facilitates thermoregulation of the body. Window air conditioners are able not only to cool the air. More expensive and modern models have remote control and can operate in the heating and cleaning mode. They have a wide range of operating temperatures - an average from 18 to 43°C. Powerful differently directed air flow evenly distributes across the area.
If you already have a window air conditioning unit and you have noticed recently that it seems to be louder there are few steps you should take. Check to see if the unit is vibrating on the windowsill. It may need to be re-tightened on its shelf. The side panels might also be loose. Inspect those to see if they need tightening. If the unit seems to be vibrating more than normal consider sliding a piece of wood under the unit to secure it.
