Window AC / September 20, 2018 / Marphisa Babin.
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.
Slowly lessen your grip on it. If the conditioner wobbles the sash is not down tightly enough. After it is secured put in the foam provided around all cracks. You may have to use extra strips of paper towel to really make it tight. This will keep bugs from entering. Plug it in and turn it on. Looking for a GE Window Air Conditioner can be tough as youll soon see there are many General Electric products on the market. GE builds room ac units to accommodate the needs of every consumer whether you need to cool a small room or an entire home.
A window air conditioner in my opinion is a last resort for air conditioning your house or building. There are many down sides to window air conditioning units. There are two good things that window air conditioners have going for them. They are very inexpensive when it comes to cost per BTU of cooling. They also install very quickly and easily. That is where the good part of them ends. Window air conditioners are security risks. If a thief wants to get into your house the thin sheet metal box that holds the unit in the window can easily be pulled apart to get in through the window.
These extenders will fill the space between the unit and the edges of to keep air from leaking out. Youre now ready to open the window from the bottom pain and have your helper raise the A/C into position. Rest the A/C on the window sill and slide the extensions out to fill any gaps. Check the instructions provided with your A/C for the what the correct placement is for your specific appliance. Most air conditioning units should tilt outward to drain any condensation that may accumulate on it. Finally you will fasten the brackets and lower the window pain back to the top of your machine. Sometimes it is wise to fasten the upper window pane in place to avoid movement of your A/C.
