3 Excellent Reasons To Buy A Portable Air conditioning unit

A goldmine of enlightening information can be revealed by checking out forums. For example, when I wanted to tap into the experiences of actual portable air conditioning unit owners, all I had to do was Google portable air conditioner forums, and Voila!, I had instant access to pages of relevant information from 3 different forums.

I encourage you to try this method. Just replace any generic service or product description for portable air conditioners plus the word "forums".

What I discovered were issues concerning energy consumption, how energy consumption affects circuit load, noise level, venting, the disposal of water from the dehumidifying process, and naturally, price.

Portable Air Conditioner Energy Consumption.

In the United States, the typical air conditioning unit runs 750 hours each year. Considering that air conditioners use a lot of electricity, their efficiency has become a public issue. The EER, or Energy Efficiency Rating, is the ratio of the BTU's per hour to the number of watts the unit draws.

Portable Air Conditioner Circuit Load.

Before you begin your search for a portable air conditioning unit, check your breaker box for the number of amps available to the room you want cooled. If you purchase a unit that draws 14.5 amps on a 15 amp circuit, you'll have the extra, but unexpected cooling result of sitting in the dark while enjoying your brand-new portable air conditioning unit.

How Noisy Is A Portable Air Conditioner?

Many portable air conditioners that provide 14,000 Btus or less have a noise level around 50 decibels. This is comparable to the loudness of the majority of refrigerators. At 60 decibels, a 16,000 Btu unit is somewhat noisier. Think about what it's like to enjoy television in the kitchen area while the fridge is running.Air Conditioning Service McKinney\nFor more Information
