Disadvantages of window air conditioner
Many people think that window air conditioners are not that efficient because they are installed in the window. Also they are not very popular because in the winter they let the cold air get inside your home.
Windows air conditioning systems offer a lot of great options for those who have installed central hot air systems.
Window air conditioners are used for ventilation on the central hot air system because the ducting is already installed. The installation process is very easy, and with the ducting in place, it’s even easier. There are two main parts of the unit: one will be installed outside – the condenser, and one inside. The copper tubing will link the two components.
The unit will need to be powered by electricity, so after you have installed the units, you can connect it to an outlet. Then the air conditioner is ready to be used.
There are also a few drawbacks that window air conditioners have. If you do not have a central hot air system that required ventilation, you will need to buy a special cover for the unit. This way you will prevent the cold air from the outside entering your house.
Also, the installation of the central cooling and heating system can be quite difficult. The ducting is a big problem as sometimes there may be no room for it, and without it the contractor cannot install the air conditioner. So before considering buying the system, you should call a professional and ask for his advice. He will tell you whether or not to invest in this type of air conditioner ot buy another one.
