3 Fantastic 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 use the experiences of actual portable air conditioning unit owners, all I had to do was Google portable air conditioning unit forums, and Voila!, I had instant access to pages of pertinent information from 3 different forums.

I urge you to try this technique. Just substitute any common product and services description for portable air conditioners plus the word "forums".

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

Portable Ac unit Energy Consumption.

In the United States, the typical ac unit runs 750 hours each year. Considering that air conditioners utilize a great deal of electricity, their effectiveness has become a public problem. The EER, or Energy Efficiency Rating, is the ratio of the BTU's per hour to the number of watts the unit draws.

Portable Ac unit Circuit Load.

Before you start your search for a portable ac 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 additional, but unintentional cooling effect of sitting in the dark while enjoying your brand-new portable ac unit.

How Noisy Is A Portable Ac unit?

A lot of portable air conditioners that deliver 14,000 Btus or less have a noise level around 50 decibels. This is equivalent to the loudness of the majority of refrigerators. At 60 decibels, a 16,000 Btu unit is somewhat noisier. Think of what it's like to watch television in the kitchen while the fridge is running.Http://\nPhoenix AZ Air Conditioning Services
