Window AC / September 11, 2018 / Jacqueline Bizier
One sees a similar box for a wall air conditioner. Naturally people assume they are the same. But they arent and this article will explain why. The two types share some characteristics. Both span the dividing line from inside to outside allowing all components to be housed in a single box. Therefore both utilize both inside and outside air to perform. Both are designed to condition a single room. But there are differences. Windows are thin and the sleeve for a window unit is designed to take advantage of this. It sits on the window sill with the window closed onto the case to seal the top.
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.
You can not block the air conditioner with curtains for example; otherwise the comfort will be created between the window and curtains but not in the room. Less effective in a larger room. Sometimes price is much the same as of the split-system. One must admit window air conditioners design more compact and reliable compared to split-system. Window air conditioning system consists of a single case. This so-called monoblock is mounted into the window opening or wall. The conditioner case is a big box assembled from metal plastic panels of white gray light brown or other pastel colors. All the filling of indoor and outdoor units of split-system (evaporator condenser compressor fan etc.) is inside the case. There are no any external connecting tubes.
