2 Reasons To Buy A Window Mounted Air Conditioner Instead Of Central Air

Home & Garden Blog

Choosing a new air conditioner for your home can be a bit difficult, mostly because there are quite a few different types to choose from. The two most popular type of air conditioners are window mounted and central air, with the window mounted units having a few advantages over the central air systems. Two reasons to buy a window mounted unit instead of central air are that they are easy to install and cost-effective:

Easy To Install

A window mounted air conditioner is the easiest type of air conditioner to install in your home, and can often be installed in under an hour. In most cases, all you really need to do is place the air conditioner in an open window, close the window onto the top the unit, and use the included panels to block of the window in order to keep pests out of your home.

If you buy one of the larger window mounted units, you will usually have to use a mounting kit to brace the unit against the house in order to support the weight of the air conditioner.

This is a huge advantage over a central air conditioning unit that can take several days to install. In addition, if your home does not already have the necessary duct system in place, it can take quite a bit longer than several days to completely install the central air system.

Cost Effective

Window mounted units are quite a bit cheaper than central air units as well, with window mounted units costing just a fraction of the price of a central air system. In many cases, a central air system will cost several thousand dollars to purchase and install.

Another way that a window mounted unit can save you money is by lowering your electric bill. While a central air system is designed to cool your entire home at once, window mounted units will only cool the room that they are installed in. This means that you can more easily manage how much energy you use when cooling your home.

For example, you can choose to turn off the window mounted units when you leave a room and turn on the unit in the rooms that you are actually going to spend time in. With a central air system, you will be spending money to cool rooms that no one is using.

Speak to an air conditioning contractor or dealer in order to discuss the many available air conditioning options. A window mounted unit is very easy to install in a short amount of time, while also being able to save you money on your utility bills and the cost of the unit itself.
