Window Air Conditioners – These types of air conditioners go right into a window, and they can typically cool off one or maybe two rooms. You will save on energy, as well as some money. These units fit into double-hung windows, as well as single-hung windows. There are also air conditioners for sliding windows available.
Our favorite sliding window ac is the Frigidaire FRA123KT1 12,000 BTU Casement/Slider Room Air Conditioner.
Wall Units – This unit is great for cooling down up to two rooms, and it will save you some window space. These units fit right through a wall that has a hole in it, but unlike a window unit, they do require more work. You need to insert the unit into the wall, but first you need to cut a hole into it, and then use a sleeve to insert it.
PTAC– PTAC is short for package terminal air conditioners, and they are perfect for offices, business, apartments, as well as hospitals. One of the best things about these unites is that they can be turned into heaters.
Portable AC Units– These units allow you to cool down the room of your choice, as they are portable. All you need to do is wheel it into the room of your choice. They are simple to install, and they can be exhausted out of a window, or throughout a hole, or opening in the wall.
Ductless Splits – These units use air ducts, and they have a split design, just like central AC. However, unlike central AC, split ac units are easy to install, and they do not cost as much money as central AC, when it comes to installation.
You will want to think about your environment and then buy the unit that is best suited for it. Nowadays AC units have special features, such as displays that are digital, remote controls, fan settings that are automatic, timers, and many units have a sleek look to them.
They tend to be very quiet, and best of all they are usually energy efficient, which means you can save a lot of money on your energy bill. Units are even simple to install and very easy to maintain. However, you need to choose the right size for your needs. A 7,000 BTU unit can cool down a room that is around 200 square feet. Regardless of what you decide to do, make sure to get an AC unit for this summer and beat the heat.
AC units come in a wide range of sizes, have an array of features, and there are many to choose from, so make sure to take the time to look at them before you purchase one.
