Ductless air conditioners are characterized by their exceptional efficiency, quiet operation and unique flexibility. Since AC system design is not restricted because of cumbersome ductwork, conditioned air can be delivered into virtually any space by simply installing a stylish ceiling or wall mount indoor unit.As with any HVAC appliance, it is important that a ductless installation is completed by a licensed and qualified heating and cooling dealer. Homeowners and handymen do not have the expertise required to complete the electrical connections and charge the system with refrigerant. An improper installation can void the warranty and cause permanent damage to the equipment.
There’s no simpler, more affordable way to cool down a room than with a window-mounted air conditioner. These compact units are reliable, durable, able to cool virtually any size room, and today’s models are exponentially more energy efficient than units built just 10 years ago. Plus, window air conditioners are easy to install. It’s critically important to choose a model with a cooling capacity sufficient to cool the room. If you choose a unit that’s too small, it’ll struggle to keep the room cool on the hottest days. And choosing a unit that’s too big—a common mistake—is just as problematic. An oversized air conditioner will pump too much moisture back into the room, raising the humidity to unsafe levels, especially for those with breathing difficulties.
Through-the-wall air conditioners are self-contained units that quickly cool rooms and other spaces. They're similar to window ACs but are installed through an exterior wall and use a wall sleeve for support. Installing a thru-wall AC in your living room, bedroom, or office is an efficient way to keep you cool and comfortable all year. Most new models do more than just cool; they're packed with multiple modes and energy efficient, convenient features.
Portable Air Conditioners are ideal for spot cooling. The compressor, condenser and evaporator are housed in a compact unit. The air is filtered, dehumidified and cooled while a flexible air outlet hose sends heat outside. The air conditioner includes a window venting kit. No permanent installation is needed. The unit is easy to move from room to room and offers a truly flexible air conditioning solution. Auto Evaporation System - The unit automatically evaporates the condensate through the air outlet hose. There is no need to empty the drainage tank except in very humid conditions. Read and follow the instructions carefully.
AC systems rely on closed-loop cycles for the refrigerant (aka gas) that needs to be pressurized by the compressor located in the condenser. Now, with solar air conditioning systems, an external heat source in the form of a solar panel (or flat plate collector) can be utilized to collect ambient temperature and then use that heat onto the refrigerant. This will create pressure within a closed loop of refrigerant, allowing your solar AC to work.
This type of air conditioning system is energy efficient because the more heat the solar panels (and thus the refrigerant) are exposed to, the less work is required for the compressor to drive the process of air conditioning.
PTAC units are beneficial because they can efficiently cool and heat a room from a single unit. PTACs are commercial grade durable units, but since they are units 42" wide you have to have a large hole cut into your wall. PTACs have to be installed into an external sleeve with an exterior grille that are both sold separately. PTAC units are generally more expensive than window air conditioners, but if you are planning to both cool and heat a room then you could save up to 20% a year on electricity.PTAC units are installed through a hole in the wall. Often you will need a professional to help install the unit, sleeve, and grille. PTAC units cannot be installed without a sleeve because a wall is not strong enough to support the weight of the unit.
The first type of wall unit is necessary when there is not yet an air conditioner installed. A wall unit that has a slide-out chassis should be installed. These air conditioners are much less expensive to install because no big hole need to be cut. TV Wall Air Conditioner quickly and efficiently cools medium to large rooms. The unit is designed with easy-to-read digital controls and a digital display for simplicity of use. Plus, this unit features a convenient 24-hour on/off timer. The interior unit shuts off when the timer setting is reached.
