Window Air Conditioner Reviews

The window air conditioner is a good appliance for summer to make your room cool down especially room with no permanent AC unit like split type and central cooling systems. It’s suitable to be installed in the room where you use frequently and also removable as well. Don’t forget to use support bracket with your window AC unit to prevent it from falling out of window.

Window AC Unit

What It’s Good For

Less Space - This window type has compressor inside: not separate as split type, so it’s not waste space for outside unit. It’s also compact size in order to put on window, so it doesn’t take any floor space like portable air conditioner.

Removable - It has no parts that need to be installed permanently, even the exhaust hose. That makes it can be removed easily and kept in storage after the summer to be able to use window as usual.

Dimension - Although it’s air conditioner designed for installation on the window in particular, but that doesn’t mean it can be installed on all windows. Because it has different sizes up to cooling capacity - more capacity, the bigger size. Therefore, you should check min/max window width specification with your window width before buying.

Power Cord - It’s an appliance with high currents, so should not plug with extension cord. Therefore, make sure that the cord is long enough to plug power outlet nearby and plug design compatible with your outlet.

  • Support Bracket
  • High Density Foam Tape
