It looks as though the hot temperatures are going to be with us for awhile. Will your air conditioner withstand another few months of blasting cool air throughout your home? If not it might be time to make the switch to a new model. You could be in a good position for a purchase like that because most retailers are looking to clear out their “summer” items like air conditioners.
As the industry explains, there are two types of air conditioner systems: split air or package. The split air is often referred to as central air. A big unit will be outside your home pumping in cool air throughout your house. Depending on the sophistication of that unit, you could keep a minimal amount of living “zones” cool while the rest of the house is left alone. Unfortunately, most systems aren’t that sophisticated. In other words, if you cool off one room you have to cool off the whole house which means very high electric bills. With the package air conditioner a small unit is placed in a window or as a mobile unit that can be wheeled from room to room. This is a concentrated effort of circulating cool air.
If you’re in the market for a new AC be on the lookout for an EnergyStar sticker. This will tell you that the model of AC you’re looking at has been designed to meet EPA standards with regard to energy efficiency. Whenever buying a major appliance you should always look for that EnergyStar label. Even if it appears that you’re paying more for that item, you’ll get back plenty of savings in the form of lower electric bills.
A decent air conditioner unit should not only fit the window but also the size of the room. In other words, just because a unit has a lot of power doesn’t mean it’s going to be the best for a small room. What often happens in that case is the room becomes over chilled and the moisture in the air is removed. That’s not a comfortable experience for anyone. A better way to go is get a measurement of the room you want to cool off and let that be your guide. Keep in mind that an air conditioner in your living room isn’t going to be much help for your bedroom. Cool air doesn’t travel up stairs or down hallways. It’s better to have two ACs for two rooms.
