Window AC / August 25, 2018 / Babette Arsenault
If you spend over $300 on an air conditioner the quality and value increases dramatically. The air conditioners have a high EER and BTU capacity and are capable of cooling large spaces very quickly. Spend $600 or more and youll be purchases a super deluxe model that will probably cool your entire first floor living area. Odds are that if you own an air conditioner you own a window unit. These are the most popular types - both in the US and globally - available today. Window air conditioner units are so popular because they are inexpensive (running anywhere from $150-$600) and take up no floor space in your home because they sit on your windowsill.
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.
Why are window air conditioners so loud? Well the reason is simple: because the entire air conditioner - the compressor the condenser and the fans - are all located in one single unit. By contrast with a split ac and a central air conditioner the compressor and condenser are installed outside of your home. That means that in those units the loudest parts arent in your home. With a window unit however the noisiest parts of the unit are inside your home. This can be a minor annoyance. It may mean that you have to turn up the volume on the tv to hear it. But it can also mean sleepless nights if your window air conditioner in your bedroom is deafening.
