How to Choose a Stand Alone Air Conditioner

Home Improvement,Home Repair,Consumer
There is debate as to what brand of standalone air conditioner is the best on the market. Many people are of the opinion that stand alone units are not effective and are seriously inferior to the full air conditioning units that connect to one’s air-duct system. For homeowners or renters with smaller units, however, a stand alone air conditioning unit may be all you needs to cool your home.

It is important to remember that the size of the unit you are heating or cooling is going to have a direct impact on how effective your air conditioner is. You obviously cannot cool a large mansion with a small unit. At the same time you would not install an expensive air conditioning system just to cool a small studio apartment. It is for this reason a wide variety of standalone and full-size air conditioning units are available. For today we are going to be focusing on standalone units, as our next article will cover full size air conditioning appliances.

Within the standalone niche there are over one dozen manufacturers to choose from. Before we start looking at individual models, however, you should know the size of your property so you know how powerful of a unit you need to purchase. You may remember this from when you first bought your home. If you do not you may need to get out the measuring tape and figure out how many square feet your property is. If you have a large property with a lot of weird corners you can definitely estimate. Just try to get a proper estimate, as the difference between a 600 square foot unit and a 1,000 square foot unit can be drastic. Getting a model that is too powerful for a small unit will leave you running for your blankets and slipper booties.

Now that you know the size of your property you want to look at how many square feet individual models can cool. Most if not all manufacturers list this on the appliance’s packaging. If you are shopping online, which we recommend, you will want to read through the product listing carefully. Amazon is really good about putting all of the relevant product information on their website.

Another good thing about Amazon is the ability to browse consumer reviews. When you have nothing to analyze but product specifications, it can make the decision process tough. Many models with have the same exact specs but there is no way of knowing if the product is durable, does what it says it can do, etc. By reading consumer reviews provided by others we get a much better idea of how the product performs in a real-life setting. Using this information you can make a much more informed purchase decision that you will hopefully not regret.

In conclusion, before purchasing a home cooling appliance make sure you take the time to do your research. Figure out how many square feet your property is or at least how many square feet you need to cool. From there do research on product specifications, and once you have found a model that fits your needs make sure to look at consumer reviews. Best of luck shopping!
