Window AC / August 31, 2018 / Aubrette Dumoulin.
How much depends on each situation. When considering your options for air conditioning installation you need to get prices for everything and then decide what type of unit will work the best for you. In another article I will talk about when to consider using a ductless split type air conditioning unit. They are also another possibility to consider. Window air conditioners are small units made to fit a standard window space. They work like any other air conditioner and they come in different BTU (British Thermal Units) capacities to cool rooms of different sizes.
The back the part that hangs outside should have the vents where water will drip out. Carefully place it on the window sill facing the right way. There should be ridges around the perimeter of the air conditioner to show you where it should line up with the window. Once you have this lined up slide open the side panels. These are designed to fill up the rest of the window that the device does not fill. Slide them as tightly over as you can. Have the top sash of the window lowered carefully and slowly down until it comes into firm contact with the top of the conditioner. The frame should be very tight against it to brace it and keep it from falling.
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.
When a small window unit for a large room is not enough a large unit for a small place is waste of money. So you should buy a window air conditioner appropriately based on your room space. For a space up to 350 square feet you would require 8000 BTUs. The number of BTUs grows proportionately according to your space. Window air conditioners have high-energy efficient ratios noise-free and when fitted properly cool an entire space very quickly. There are lots of types of window air conditioners from different companies available at different prices. Companies like Haier Kelon and Carrier have products starting from price ranges as low as $50-$150. They come with quiet operation function timer dehumidification air filters and much more.
