When it comes to buy a new AC there are two common choices for small rooms and spaces:
-Window Type AC,
-Portable Type AC.
Here are some facts about air conditioner which may help you to chose a right one for your need:
| A window air conditioner is installed temporarily in a window of your home to cool a single space. Depending on the BTU/hour of the unit, window air conditioning can cool a room of up to 1,200 square feet. With the help of strategically-placed portable fans, you may be able to use a window air conditioner to cool a small house. |
These units tend to be noisy, and by nature of their installation, they can create drafts, so many people choose to remove and store them during the cold winter months. These units are good for renters, too.
Casement Air Conditioning
Also called a vertical air conditioner, a casement air conditioning unit functions exactly like any window air conditioner but is designed for use in windows that open side-to-side or swing outward. This type of AC is good for use in narrow spaces.
Portable air conditioners cool and dehumidify a room, and installation is not permanent. Because these types of air conditioners are on casters or wheels, they can easily be moved from room to room. They're also energy efficient, helping the owner save money on energy costs. Most units are equipped with digital thermostats and automatic timers.
Portable air conditioners operate similar to a typical window unit, with the condenser, evaporator and internal compressor functioning in the same way.
The biggest difference between a portable and window air conditioner is that a portable units rests on the floor versus in the window. Similar to your dryer ducts, round air ducts connect the portable unit to a window adapter.
You simply open a window and place the window adapter in the opening. You then close the window against the adapter to exhaust the heat outside when cooling.
There are two main types of portable units. One design uses a single duct to connect to the window adapter, while the other uses two ducts. The one design duct is the simplest system, but the two-duct design is more efficient. With two ducts, all of the hot air is drawn and exhausted back outdoors, which means no cooled air-conditioned air is being exhausted outside. Some two-duct heat pump design models can be configured with only one duct for quicker setup.
Another distinguishing feature of portable air conditioners is how the unit handles condensed water. Some models have an evaporator feature that mixes air exhausted outdoors, so there is no water to empty. Other model types collect the water in a tank, which you must empty periodically.
The British Thermal Unit (BTU) is the basic measure of heat energy in the Imperial system. One BTU is defined as the amount of heat necessary to raise 1 pound (0.454 kg) of water 1 degree Fahrenheit (0.55 degrees Celsius).
Use this table to find the basic cooling capacity in Btu/h you'll need based on total floor area to be cooled.
TOTAL FLOOR AREA
BASIC COOLING CAPACITY
1 000-1 200
1 200-1 600
19 000-24 000
1 600-1 800
24 000-27 000
1 800-2 800
27 000-33 000
* Based on rooms with two occupants and average windows, insulation and sun exposure.
Total Floor Area to Be Cooled
Basic Cooling Capacity
22.6 m2 (240 sq. ft.)
If cooling capacity is more than 12 000 Btu/h, consider installing two smaller units. Otherwise, a single unit might require a larger amperage circuit (20 to 30 amperes) or a dedicated 240-volt circuit.
