When the temperatures hit 30 degrees in the house, it’s officially time to start using the air conditioner. I remember being completely confused the first time I went out to buy one, but after brushing up a bit on the ins and outs of air conditioners, I was ready to pick the best one for my house. So how do you know which type of air conditioner is right for you?
We’ve been putting it off because the temperatures haven’t really hit the 30’s yet, but the time has come to think about how you plan on staying cool this summer. If you want to keep a room or two chilly but don’t want to freak out when you see your energy bill, a window air conditioning unit is a great choice.
Portable air conditioners are an amazing home appliance for a number of reasons. They can be moved from one room to the other, so you don’t have to hover in one cool room and ignore the rest of your house when it gets hot outside. Portable air conditioners are also self-contained, so you won’t have to permanently install them in your house.
It’s time to turn off the heat, pour the ice cold beer (lemonade for the kids, of course), and get that AC running on full blast. But when it comes to purchasing an AC unit, there’s a dilemma: should you go window or portable?
