Window AC / August 26, 2018 / Denise Brisette
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.
So what you should do? The best thing to do is to check out the sound levels on your window unit before you make your purchase. All air conditioners come with labels specifying the decibels generated by the unit. A high number means a loud machine. For example a unit with a rating of 50 Decibels is 10 times louder than one rated 40 Decibels. The smartest thing to do is to go to a big box store like Target or Walmart and listen to an air conditioner before you buy it. Even if you are looking at a different brand it is important to get a sense of how loud the Decibel ratings are for you. You can do this best by listening to different ac units running.
A wall with simple sheet type siding may be only 6 inches thick whereas a brick or stone wall can be much thicker. So wall air conditioner sleeves have ventilation louvers only in the back to avoid louvers being covered by the wall edges. This limits the amount of ventilation space available in turn limiting how powerful the unit can be. Wall air conditioners generally dont get much over 14000 BTU depending on the brand. So are they interchangeable? This question usually arises when someone needs a lot of cooling power in a room without suitable windows for a window unit.
