Window AC / September 18, 2018 / Jacqueline Bizier
How much depends on each situation. When considering your options for air conditioning installation you need to get prices for everything and then decide what type of unit will work the best for you. In another article I will talk about when to consider using a ductless split type air conditioning unit. They are also another possibility to consider. Window air conditioners are small units made to fit a standard window space. They work like any other air conditioner and they come in different BTU (British Thermal Units) capacities to cool rooms of different sizes.
Installing Your New Air Conditioner. Before you remove your new A/C from its packaging youll need to recruit a helper. Air conditioners are very hard to grip because their weight is uneven and dropping the unit from a window could be catastrophic. After you find a friend or family neighbor to help you can begin the installation by installing any mounting brackets that have been provided by the manufacturer. Heavy older units typically come with mounting brackets that help to support the A/C unit using the window sill and outer wall as balancing points. Next attach any extenders that come with your air conditioner.
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.
