Nothing beats the cool air coming out of your air conditioner on a hot summer day. It gets even better knowing that AC units today are quieter and more energy-efficient than ever before. Indeed, the latest units now have features such as digital displays, timers, remote controls and “smart” fans that adjust speeds automatically to maintain preferred temperatures.
If you’re in the market for a new AC unit, it’s important to be familiar with the various types of air conditioners and their features. Jon Wayne Company, a local HVAC company, discusses them in today’s blog post.
Types of Air Conditioning Units
Of all AC units, the window-mounted type is the most common. Installed in a window opening, window-mounted units are a good choice if your home is situated in a region with moderate temperatures. It’s an easy-to-install, low-cost choice that will work well with existing electrical wiring in your home.
A wall-mounted AC unit, meanwhile, is one that’s permanently mounted on a metal sleeve attached to the wall. It provides a more secure fit than a window unit and is more visually appealing once installed. In addition, investing in a wall-mounted model rather than one that’s window mounted will enable you to take advantage of the increased sunlight, which will help to brighten up the entire space.

Features to Look For In an AC Unit
Air conditioning units have important features that help improve indoor air quality while also saving time and energy. For instance, an energy-saver switch turns the fan off when the thermostat turns off the compressor, saving you on energy bills. A visual reminder to clean or change the AC’s filter is also a great feature to have.
Of course, you’ll want the AC to have a remote control so you can adjust the temperature from anywhere inside your home. It should also have a sleep mode, which raises the temperature at night to avoid making your room too chilly while you sleep, and a timer that automatically turns the unit on or off at a set time.
