Where you place your air conditioner will determine how well it works and even how much having it on will cost you. The right placement can regulate your room’s temperature without being too costly.
Here’s our checklist of basic considerations when choosing where to place your air conditioner:
• away from any heat sources like appliances or kitchenware; includes the external portion’s exposure to sunlight
• a height that won’t disturb people with hot or cold air streams, either overhead or down below; keep it from being too level with the head or lungs area
• not blocking a passage way
• not behind doors or furniture pieces
When considering areas to place your unit, keep in mind that the more work it produces, the more energy it consumes. This means spending more money for the electric company.
For smaller, enclosed spaces, you don’t need big air conditioning devices. You don’t even need big ones for big areas. The secret is to choose the right unit for the kind of use you’re planning. The layout of the room is an important factor, too.
If your room has different areas and is not a rectangular shape, place the air conditioner in the largest part of the room. It’s no use to only air condition entryways, foyers, or closets.
Avoid placing air conditioners right over beds. Not only will the electric socket be too close to the sleeping resident, but it also runs the risk of hitting the body with air that’s either too cold or too hot. This won’t be comfortable at all.
Choosing the right type of air conditioning system is integral in your comfort and that of your family’s. The wrong type can lead you with high electricity bills for very little pay-off.
