If you are living in an apartment, then surely you will have different needs concerning air conditioning. Here are a few pieces of advice for choosing the right unit for your apartment.
Because you won’t be able to install ducts in the ceiling, the central air conditioning system is excluded.
One of the most popular choices for small houses and apartments is the portable air conditioner. They do not need special ducts. All you need to do is plug them in and then start them. You can place them in any room. They are great for heating a small room, but they can struggle with the cooling. The main disadvantage is that their capacity isn’t that large and they won’t be able to cool more than one room at a time.
Another type of air conditioner is the window one. They can be fitted on the wall or on the window. You can use the system to both cool and heat the room. They are more powerful than portable air conditioners but they can be a little noisy and a little more expensive. The installation process isn’t that easy so you will need to call a professional. Add this to the costs.
Maybe the best choice is the split air conditioner. These are reverse cycle air conditioners and they need to be fitted on the wall. These systems are very powerful and can cool or heat even large rooms. They are more modern and more silent than window units. They can also be portable, but you will need to make a hole in the wall each time you install it in another place. They can be very reliable.
So, think what your options are and choose the best solution for your apartment.
