Window Air Conditioners
Cool rooms with window air conditioners
Window air conditioners cool rooms and other small spaces efficiently in buildings without centralized systems. You can also substitute these units for the central air conditioning systems of homes and buildings to save on your power bills. Air conditioners work by transferring heat from air using evaporation and condensation. The by-products of air conditioning are warm air and water. The warm air vents to the outside of the building.
The difference between window fans and window air conditioners is fans do not remove heat from the air that they circulate. Because the air conditioner must vent warm air outside of the home or building, the window is a natural location for this device. Sears air conditioners are easy to install, and usually you can move them from one window to another without difficulty. The units come in sizes that conform to conventional windows in homes and other buildings.
You can choose from a range of window air conditioners depending on the size of the space you need to cool. The cooling unit for air conditioners is the BTU or British Thermal Unit. It requires about 18,000 BTUs to cool 1000 sq. ft. effectively. While you can install wall air conditioners instead, such units are more difficult to relocate later on. In comparison, the Kenmore 6,000 BTU Room Air Conditioner takes up only minimal window space, and it weighs only 49 lbs. The unit can fit into windows from 23 to 36 inches wide and as little as 12.5 inches high. Despite its small size, the Kenmore air conditioner can cool up to 216 sq. ft.
To reduce your electricity bill and carbon footprint, you can choose one of our Energy Star air conditioners. These units have federal government certification for energy efficiency. The Keystone KSTAW06A Energy Star 6,000 BTU Air Conditioner is Energy Star compliant with enough power to cool 250 sq. ft. The unit has an LED display and control panel along with remote control. You can check and adjust the temperature from anywhere in the room. You can also control airflow direction, cooling speed and fan speed. To save energy, program the air conditioner to turn off when no one is home and them back on again before your arrival. The installation kit allows for most people to have this system up and running quickly.
