Window AC / September 15, 2018 / Babette Arsenault.
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 units of today are very quiet and their efficiency has improved a lot also. In fact these units are so quiet that you can hardly even hear them operating. Window air conditioners have the same components as a central air conditioner but they are all installed in small cabinet. The biggest and most important difference is that they dont have to cooling capacity of central units. But they also dont cost as much to operate either. If you only want to cool one or two rooms then window air conditioners are a perfect choice. However if you want to cool your entire home a central air conditioner is the best alternative.
If you spend over $300 on an air conditioner the quality and value increases dramatically. The air conditioners have a high EER and BTU capacity and are capable of cooling large spaces very quickly. Spend $600 or more and youll be purchases a super deluxe model that will probably cool your entire first floor living area. Odds are that if you own an air conditioner you own a window unit. These are the most popular types - both in the US and globally - available today. Window air conditioner units are so popular because they are inexpensive (running anywhere from $150-$600) and take up no floor space in your home because they sit on your windowsill.
Have everything ready and laid out before you have unpacked. Have the screen removed from the window. Remember that these only work for windows that can be pulled up. Ones that crank out will not open wide enough nor will they have anything to hold the air conditioner steady. Open up the window as wide as it can go to give yourself a little extra room to work. It is helpful if you have someone there to push down the top sash when the time comes. Make sure the air conditioner is facing the right way. The front which should be inside the room should have the dials and the cord to plug into the wall.
