Window AC / August 31, 2018 / Aubrette Dumoulin.
If you choose to use a window air conditioner than you should also look for a place that it can be secured and placed in a room that you will not be sleeping in. As you can tell by now I am not a big fan of window air conditioners. They do have a place for some people. However you do need to be aware of the problems that you may encounter with them. The low initial cost can be offset by the fact that they typically do not last as long as a central air conditioner. Central air conditioning will last much longer be quieter during operation be more efficient be more secure but the initial cost will be higher.
Another Energy Star rated air conditioner from GE is the AEM08FM window unit. With a BTU 8000 this GE Air Conditioner has an energy saver feature making it much easier to save on your electric bill. It also comes with an electronic thermostat. This GE air conditioning unit also has strong reviews to back it up. Owners note how this product is also very quiet. If you have a big room to keep frosty go with the GE ASQ12AK Window Air Conditioning system. this Energy Star rated appliance does not skimp on quality. Figuring it effectively can keep a big room cool and at the same time be energy efficient this really is a bargain.
If the room is shaded then you can decrease the BTU rating you calculated with the climate control unit calculator by 10 percent however if you wish to cool a kitchen youll need to raise the rating by 4000 BTUs. When the room you are cooling is used by two or more people add six hundred BTUs per person to the rating necessary to cool the room. Before you buy the first air conditioner that fits the BTU rating necessary to cool your room make sure you have a window that will be suitable for the unit. Measure windows in the room (make sure not to block fire escapes) and make sure to buy a window air conditioner that will fit into the opening.
Depending on the size and level of insulation of your home one window air conditioner is typically enough to cool one or two rooms but larger units may even be able to cool an entire 2-3 bedroom apartment. Using multiple cooling units in a home will allow each person in the family to keep their room at the temperature they desire. Installing a cooling unit will take anywhere from ten to forty minutes.
