There aren't many things more frustrating than an air conditioning that refuses to run. A hot, muggy home can make your space incredibly uncomfortable, which is why I have always focused on maintaining my air conditioning system. Unfortunately, I still run into problems from time to time and I am sure that all of you do, which is one of the reasons I decided to build this website. Check out these posts for more information about keeping your system working beautifully, even if you aren't naturally good at fixing things. You never know, making the right changes could dramatically improve your summertime experience.
Are you looking for ways to cool a room down in your home, but are having problems figuring out how to do it. You may want to consider a through-the-wall air condition for your home. It has the following benefits that you may not be aware of.
A through-the-wall AC unit will look like those units you see in a hotel room. It has a similar appearance to a window unit, but it is installed through the wall so it no longer requires a window to place it. This means you have a lot of versatility when it comes to placing a through-the-wall AC unit. You are not bound to using a window, which is then covered in the summer with a huge appliance. You can place a through-the-wall unit almost anywhere you want on an exterior wall.
Great For Additions
You may be building an addition on your home, but realize that there will be problems getting the existing HVAC ductwork to extend to the new room. In this situation, a through-the-wall unit will be the best solution to your problem. If can be placed in any room that need air conditioning, and won't use any existing ductwork to do it.
Easy Installation & Repairs
The most difficult part of installing a through-the-wall AC unit is making the actual hole in your wall where the unit will go. Thankfully, an HVAC contractor can handle this all for you. When the AC unit needs to be serviced, the problem is easy to narrow down to the unit since there are not any other parts. The unit will be easy to replace entirely, or have it serviced by a technician. Having all of the air conditioning components narrowed down to a single box makes the whole process of repair or replacement a breeze.
Option For Heat
If you need to heat the room as well, know that many through-the-wall units come in variations that provide heat. If you need to add heat to a room, this definitely gives a through-the-wall unit an advantage over using a window unit.
The great thing about a through-the-wall unit is that it can make your home energy efficient. If you are primarily using the room where the unit is installed, you can turn down the thermostat for the rest of your house. By switching to a unit only designed to cool the room that you're in, you'll save money over time by not cooling off the entire house. Continue for more info.
