Types of AC:

Window AC
Window air conditioner is the most popular AC and can fit easily most windows with some support. Another one is portable AC that can be used anywhere in the house or office to cool specific portion. They do not need permanent installation. They support central HVAC system (Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioner). Built-in air conditioners are best for permanent operations. They are versatile with both air operations.

Ductless or Split AC is known as PTAC, technically. They are majorly used in offices, hotels and apartments. A split AC is divided into 2 units – first is an exterior condensing unit and second is an interior evaporative unit, connecting with a tube passing through the wall. Central air conditioners are basically designed for homes as they have noise free operations with high performance. 

Cooling Capacity:

 Cooling Capacity of every AC depends on its size. The AC size depends on the size of the room. An air conditioner that is small for a room would not cool the area properly, while another one that is too big will make the room over cold and sticky. AC Cooling capacity is measured in BTU (British Thermal Units). Measure your room in square feet and use a BTU calculator to determine the ideal thermal units for your room. Stuffed rooms, sunlight and high ceilings can increase the BTU need for your space.

Energy Efficient:

While all types of ACs have more or less the similar functioning and purpose, energy savings can vary from model to model. Energy Star Rating and EER number determine an AC’s energy efficiency. If you want an AC that consumes less energy and gives better energy output, look for the AC with energy star rating. EER number is a measurement of the BTUs an air conditioner consumes for each watt of power. So the higher the Energy Efficiency Ratio number, the most energy efficiency you get from an air conditioner. 

Electricity Requirements:

Check ACs specifications for the electrical equipments and be assured your system meets its needs. You will require analyzing the amperage available, voltage requirements as well as assure that the outlet is within the reach of the cord. Room ACs generally work on 115 V, 125 V or 220 V circuits. Air conditioners with cooling capacity below 15,000 BTUs work on 115 V to 125 volt circuits. Air Conditioners with cooling capacity above 15,000 BTUs work on the 220 V circuits. You might require to get special wiring if the current system does not meet the AC’s requirements. 

Installation & Maintenance:

Window Ac is very simple to install and remove. In Portable AC, no permanent installation required. They can be mounted on casters and move easily any time. Built-in ACs are more complex to install and remove.

You must follow some steps to maintain your AC periodically. For window AC, a foam weather strip requires to be installed around the system. If you don’t want to use your AC during winter season, store it away. Through cleaning is must on an annual basis. These were the top things you need to know about the AC system. However, if you are planning to buy an AC, consider all above mention things. I think it will be helpful for you.
