What Should You Look for in a Window-Type Aircon?

If you’re living in a tropical country like the Philippines, you probably know how hot summer times can be. Many days are warm and humid. During this season, folks would often cool down in a beach or pool. However, with the current travel restrictions due to COVID-19, most of us have been staying indoors and are most likely to remain indoors during the summer. Before, there are many options to cool down. Now, the best thing to do is to get an air conditioner installed at our homes. This ensures that we remain comfortable during the scorching summer months while remaining safe indoors.

Window type air conditioners are known as the most conventional types of air conditioners.

If you’re looking for a new window type aircon unit, know that there are many things to consider. Some of these are initial price, cost-efficiency, size, and maintenance. You should also ensure that you have the right air conditioner hole in your wall.

Here are five things to consider before buying a window-type aircon.

1. Cooling Capacity

This should be the first thing that you should consider. Cooling capacity should be your first consideration before buying a window AC. Cooling power is usually measured in kilojoules per hour (KJ/hr). Check how much you would need for your room. If the space is small, then you may not need to have such a high cooling capacity. Also, check your location. If sunlight directly passes through a window or your area is very hot and humid, you may need an air conditioner with a higher cooling capacity.

The Condura Cooling Capacity Guide states that a 10-13 sqm room needs 0.75 HP, 13-18 sqm needs a unit with 1.0 HP, 18-24 sqm needs 1.5 HP, 25-35 sqm needs 2.0 HP, and 31-42 sqm needs 2.5 HP.

2. Ease of Installation

Make sure that your wall has the right hole for the air conditioning unit that you intend to buy. Many window type aircon models are designed to fit inside standard double-hung windows. Today, however, most window air conditioners are installed through a custom-created wall space or hole, using a special mount or brace. If your window’s dimensions aren’t enough for an air conditioner unit or you don’t have vertical sash windows, then a custom-made hole wall is your best option.

When a window type aircon has been completely installed, the unit should be set flat inside the opening. The exhaust system should be facing outside, as it blows out warm air. The cooling system should be facing inside and should not be obstructed by curtains or furniture. Also, it is better if an air conditioning unit is placed high on the wall.

3. Energy Efficiency

When compared to centralized air conditioning systems, window-type units are the better choice when it comes to energy efficiency. The initial market price of window-types is also lower.

For you to gauge whether a unit is energy efficient look at the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER). The higher the EER, the more savings you’ll have in the long run. One example of a unit with high EER is the Condura Inverter Window-Type.

4. Aircon Maintenance

To always work efficiently, window-type air conditioners need regular maintenance. These types of air conditioners can be vulnerable to dust and dirt that can accumulate in the interior. It’s also vulnerable to debris from the outside that can accumulate on its back. Its drain may also get clogged. When these things are left unchecked, they eventually reduce the efficiency of your air conditioner.

To ensure that your air conditioner lasts long and remains efficient, schedule regular cleaning maintenance at least once a year. Though you may be able to clean the air filter by yourself, professional and thorough cleaning is still the best choice. Consider your aircon maintenance schedule before buying a window-type unit.

It’s also better to go for a top-quality unit. Choosing a good brand ensures that service centers are familiar with your unit. You’ll also be able to save more in the long run as your unit won’t break down, especially when you least expect it.

5. Aircon Price

Though usually with the cheapest market prices, window-type air conditioners can still vary in price. Bear in mind that the more affordable options are the most basic ones and may only be good for smaller spaces. The units that come with a higher price tag can cool much larger areas and also have additional functions.

When considering the cost, you should look beyond the initial market price. You should also check if a unit may potentially lead to higher electricity bills or even repair costs. Don’t be afraid to ask around before buying. Remember: When it comes to appliances, it’s always better to opt for the ones with the best quality.
