Air Conditioners (65)
Not all air conditioners are created equally. What works for one building or room might not be the correct choice for another. Knowing the various features and specifications of window air conditioners ensures users can make the right choice when it’s time to make a purchase.
Perhaps the most important attribute is the output of cold air. Cooling equipment measures output by BTU, or British thermal units. This translates to how effectively an air conditioner can control the climate in a room. The higher the BTU rating, the larger a space it can cover. Many units list the maximum size of a room that the model can cool in square metres. Using a higher BTU window air conditioner in a room that’s smaller than its maximum rating allows users to keep a room much cooler using less energy.
A portable AC unit allows users to take the unit with them as they move from room to room. It doesn’t require window placement and takes just a few seconds to set up. This allows users to keep cool while they sleep, work in the office, or relax in the living room.
There are other considerations to note when deciding which model air conditioner to purchase, in particular, how quiet the unit is. Look at some customer reviews to find out if it’s suitable to put in a media room, office, bedroom, or other space where sound levels are important. Rona carries a wide range of models, from larger units to more compact, quiet air conditioners.
Lastly, think about convenience. A basic AC unit turns on and off at the press of a button, or with a remote control. Smarter models of air conditioners have timers, or are even Bluetooth compatible. This allows users to activate them from a distance, so they can walk into a pre-cooled room.
