Did you know that the location of your air conditioner in a room has an influence on its energy efficiency – and your utility bills?
You may end up spending more than you want on continuing expenditures if you make a bad selection about where to place your air conditioner. It's possible that you'll need to employ someone to repair your air conditioner on a more regular basis.
Why? Installing an air conditioner in an inconvenient location forces it to work harder to get the desired effect, resulting in inefficiency and increased wear and tear over time. So, how can you know where to put your air conditioner to get the greatest results?
So, how can you know where to put your air conditioner for the greatest results?
To get the most out of your new cooling and heating investment, employ an air conditioning expert who can advise you on the best, most energy-efficient location to put your air conditioner.
Split air conditioning systems, in general, should be positioned in the center of the area you wish to cool or heat to guarantee even airflow throughout the space.
Mini split air conditioners (mini splits) are ductless air conditioners that may be used in residential, commercial, and institutional buildings. Multifamily housing and retrofit add-ons to houses using "non-ducted" heating systems, such as hydronic (hot water heat), radiant panels, and space heaters, are the most popular applications (wood, kerosene, propane). They're also an excellent option for room expansions and tiny flats when expanding or installing distribution ducting (for central air conditioning or heating) isn't possible.
Mini splits are well known for their tiny size and versatility when it comes to zoning or heating and cooling specific rooms. Many versions can have up to four interior air handling units linked to one outside unit (for four zones or rooms).
The amount of heating or cooling necessary for the structure or each zone determines the number (which in turn is affected by how well the building is insulated). Each zone will have its own thermostat, allowing you to only condition the area while it is inhabited, saving you both energy and money.
Mini splits eliminate the energy losses associated with ductwork in central forced air systems since they don't have any. Duct losses can account for more than 30% of space conditioning energy usage, especially if the ducts are located in an unconditioned location like an attic.
Mini splits are more flexible in terms of interior design than other add-on solutions. Indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall, suspended from the ceiling, or installed flush into a drop ceiling. There are additional floor-standing versions available. Most indoor units have a seven-inch (18-cm) deep profile and are outfitted with sleek, high-tech jackets.
Many come with a remote control, which makes it easy to turn on and off the system whether it's mounted high on a wall or hanging from the ceiling. Because there is just a little opening in the wall, split-systems can also assist to make your house safer.
