Window AC / September 11, 2018 / Jacqueline Bizier.
Depending on the size and level of insulation of your home one window air conditioner is typically enough to cool one or two rooms but larger units may even be able to cool an entire 2-3 bedroom apartment. Using multiple cooling units in a home will allow each person in the family to keep their room at the temperature they desire. Installing a cooling unit will take anywhere from ten to forty minutes. Choosing the Right Air Conditioner
Many people do not know how to set up a window air conditioner and therefore just allow their homes or offices to remain sweltering during the summer. Window air conditioners are great because they are the least invasive air conditioning systems to install and can very easily be turned off or removed as is needed. They are easy to put in and should come with descriptive directions and charts. However not all directions give little tips and tricks. The first thing you should do is make sure to install it during the day. Daylight will make it easier to see what you are doing so it does not fall out of the window and it will also keep bugs from entering while the window is open.
When purchasing a window air conditioner it is very important to purchase one with the proper cooling capacity. An air conditioner that is not properly sized will not work as efficiently as one that is sized properly. This is one of the most common mistakes made when selecting air conditioners. Use an air conditioner size calculator to select the proper sized unit for the room you want to cool. Undersized air conditioners will run continuously and not cool the space adequately and an oversized unit will cycle on and off too often. This increases equipment wear and can actually cause fuses to fail.
Air conditioners are old-timers among climatic equipment which provide comfortable conditions for living. The first window air conditioning system was invented in America in 1930s. Such devices became widespread at once due to their simple design low price and rather high power thus making the cooling of individual rooms possible. Buy your conditioner as per the appropriate BTU. It is a measurement of energy abbreviated as BTU which stands for British Thermal Unit. For this purpose you will be required to find the correct BTU of your room. BTU is proportional to the amount of heat a window conditioner will remove from a room.
