Window AC / August 28, 2018 / Jacqueline Bizier
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 a small window unit for a large room is not enough a large unit for a small place is waste of money. So you should buy a window air conditioner appropriately based on your room space. For a space up to 350 square feet you would require 8000 BTUs. The number of BTUs grows proportionately according to your space. Window air conditioners have high-energy efficient ratios noise-free and when fitted properly cool an entire space very quickly. There are lots of types of window air conditioners from different companies available at different prices. Companies like Haier Kelon and Carrier have products starting from price ranges as low as $50-$150. They come with quiet operation function timer dehumidification air filters and much more.
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.
