Window AC / September 10, 2018 / Francoise Salmons
To help make that decision more clear I will explore some of the positives and negatives of the two major options. Ductless split type units are also becoming more of an option. I will do another article on that option. To include that in this article would just be more confusing. So for now we will just look at window air conditioners and central air conditioning. Central air conditioning is the best way to go if you already have a central hot air heating system already installed in your house or building. The advantage that you have is that you already have the air handler or blower part already installed.
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.
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.
