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.
When cooling such a device reduces the humidity in the room. There are certain advantages in it for example in a hot afternoon or after rain when the humidity reaches its maximum 100% and the dehumidification is up to 30-60% it facilitates thermoregulation of the body. Window air conditioners are able not only to cool the air. More expensive and modern models have remote control and can operate in the heating and cleaning mode. They have a wide range of operating temperatures - an average from 18 to 43°C. Powerful differently directed air flow evenly distributes across the area.
To ensure efficiency use weatherstripping or calk to seal any gaps between the unit and the window frame. Once youve finished installing your cooling appliance youre ready to sit back relax and enjoy your home again. Air conditioning can help you sleep better and enjoy your house more fully in the Summer months. If you would like to cool your entire house contact an HVAC technician about installing a central cooling unit but until then the window unit will help your family stay cool. What one sees of a window air conditioner from the outside is the sleeve a metal box with ventilation louvers that houses the actual air conditioner.
An additional benefit of a properly sized air conditioner is humidity control. While these units are operating moisture condenses on the evaporator coil just like a dehumidifier. Probably the most common problem with window air conditioners is that they sometimes develop rattling noises due to vibration. This is not a serious problem and can be rectified very easily by checking to make sure all screws are tight and check that the unit is mounted correctly in the window and not twisted or stressed. Air Conditioning is something that many people look at installing every year. There are many options when it comes time to make that decision.
