This affordable unit delivers quiet operation and features a replaceable air filter that will clear the cooled air of impurities before dispersing it throughout the room. This creates a healthier living environment, especially for individuals who suffer with asthma or allergies. Wall units are cost effective and less expensive than installing a central air cooling system.
A 12000 BTU unit is adequate for cooling up to 640 square feet of space. Some units have a four-way vent that delivers air in more than one direction. It has an Energy Star Rating because it saves electricity by gradually increasing the temperature.
Many users will purchase multiple air conditioning units for installation in several rooms. I installed one in my garage. Having air conditioning during the summer in Perth is necessary because it is so hot.
This window unit has controls built into its sleek case but users have the option of using the remote control, which is included in the purchase. You can set the unit’s thermostat to the temperature that feels most comfortable to you.
The dehumidifier function will remove 3.5 pints of water from the air per hour. This air conditioner operates at three speeds and plugs into a 220-volt electrical outlet. If you do not have this type of outlet in the right location, any experienced electrical contractor will be able to install one. When mounting the unit through a wall, it will be necessary to hire a professional installer.
Some homeowners are able to create custom hardware to mount this type of unit in a casement window but it can be risky. One benefit to purchasing a wall air conditioner is the ability to remove it and relocate it to another room or even a new house. Purchasing portable air conditioners can save you money over time because you can take them anywhere you go, which is impossible with a central air system.
