Window AC / September 13, 2018 / Marphisa Babin
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.
There are other bells and whistles that are available on units these days. These can include features like dehumidifiers to remove moisture from the air and antibacterial filters which can remove odors and bacteria. A final issue to consider if you are looking to buy window air conditioner is what sorts of energy saving features the unit might have. You may consider looking for a unit that has an Energy-Star rating. The EPA assigns an Energy-Star rating to air conditioners that meet certain standards for being cost-effective and guaranteeing energy savings. This can help keep your electricity bills and check even during the hottest days of summer.
