Should you still have a question, give us a call at TRUST Heating & Air. We would be happy to point you in the right direction.
At TRUST Heating & Air, we get these questions all the time. So we have put together a few of the most frequent to help you further in your quest for cool air.
Is a window AC or a portable AC better? In most cases, a window AC is the best choice. Since they mount in the window, they will not take up usable floor space. They vent right to the outside, and they are quieter. And often, they cost less than a bulky floor unit.
How do you find the right size window AC unit? The measurement for BTUs is on the box. The larger the room, the higher the BTU rating should be. Take the measurements suggested above to your salesperson for a diagnosis.
Can a Window AC unit be considered energy efficient? The EER will tell you just what you need to know about the efficiency of a product. The higher the number, the more efficient it will be. And don’t forget to use the energy-saver switch to maximize the process.
