How to Choose the Right Air Conditioner for Your Home
Is your air conditioner on its way out? Or maybe you don’t have one at all. Stay cool this summer and choose the right air conditioner for your home.
There are four main types of air conditioners: window units, through-the-wall units, portable units and central units. Do some research on each type about the pros and cons – and which is best for your home. For example, if you have an older home with older wiring, through-the-wall units might not work as they require more amperage and voltage. Window units also require a window, so might not be suitable for your needs where a window is not accessible.
The capacity of an air conditioner is measured in BTUs. Small air conditioners deliver as few as 3000 BTUs, and through-the-wall units have a capacity of up to 20,000. Choosing the right BTU level depends on the size of the space you are trying to cool.
Air conditioners with a high EER rating (Energy Efficiency Ratio) will save you more money. Considering air conditioners are one of the most expensive appliances to run, this is definitely something to consider.
