A window AC is a better choice for homeowners and tenants who don’t want to install a central HVAC.
- It’s true that window ACs are heavy and you may be sad about connecting them securely enough so that they don’t fall out of the window, setting them up is not as daunting as you may think.
Since pretty much everyone removes window ACs at the end of the warm season and puts them back the following year when the weather warms up, those with window ACs are likely to get used to installing them. It’s essential to keep in mind that not all window designs can accommodate such a sizable box. So, the first thing you must recognize before purchasing a window AC (or trying to install 1) is how it will fit inside your window. Before you get a window AC, ensure that the size and genre of windows you have are compatible. The window ACs indicate the minimum and maximum width of windows they can fit, plus the minimum window opening. In order to fit the maximum width of the AC’s baffles, the window opening should be wider than the unit. In addition, the window should open wide enough for the air conditioning unit to fit between the sash and sill. A room’s temperature can be controlled by choosing the right size AC, but you can’t maintain a cool temperature in the room if you get a small AC. Electricity bills will rise if you have an AC that is too large.
