Air Conditioners

Why Do I Need One?
Besides helping you create a cool, comfortable environment in your home, the benefits you receive from these units include: energy saving spot cooling, no obstruction of window views, and no ugly window units. With a quick set up time, a PAC cools a home without the major cost of central air.

A portable air conditioner will help keep you cool during hot summer months; and they help allergy sufferers keep their allergies under control by regulating indoor temperatures and humidity levels. Dust mites and mold spores are particularly affected by fluctuations in temperature and humidity.

How Do They Work?
A portable air conditioner operates the same way as window air conditioner does. They cool your room by cooling the warm air in your home and exhausting the byproducts of heat and moisture out the window. Hot air from the room passes over coils cooled by refrigerant gas. Excess heat and moisture are pushed out through the exhaust hose while the chilled air is emitted back into the room.

The main difference is that they come with an exhaust hose (or two) that directs the hot air from the back of the unit through a window. Window air conditioner units do not have this feature, because the exhaust is outside already. Most also have a water tank to collect excess condensate, or water, that is extracted from the air. This tank needs to be emptied occasionally to keep the unit working properly.

What Features Should I Look For?
An important feature to look for is whether the unit is a dual hose or single hose unit. Dual hose units operate more efficiently in most cases. Dual hose units feature two air intakes and one outtake hose. Dual hose systems are more efficient in larger settings and do no create negative air pressure like single hose units do.

All of these units are on casters, and most come with easy hand grips on the sides to make them portable and easy to move throughout the home. You might also try to find out what exactly the window kit is like. Some have hard plastic window sliders, while others just have a foam insert for the window.

Friedrich Kuhl Window Air Conditioner
Recently, we added Portable Air Conditioners to our website, because we know that the summer heat is right around the corner. We also use one of these units in our own Computer / Mechanical room to maintain a constant temperature. During our research for this project, we came across a new and exciting window air conditioner, the Friedrich Kuhl (Cool!). Our whole staff knew immediately that this AC was something we had to offer to our fans.

The Friedrich Kuhl SS10M10 is a window air conditioner with 9,500 BTU of cooling power. This ultra premium, programmable unit is Energy Star qualified. The Kuhl is designed with commercial grade durability for home or commercial use. With a host of easy-to-use features and simple installation options, the Kuhl SS10M10 provides comfortable and quick cooling for spaces sized up to 400 square feet.

An entirely new, satin silver front with illuminated touch controls places the Kuhl SS10M10 at the forefront of room air conditioner design. New digital controls provide comfort and convenience. You will have a range of program options that are usually found with expensive central air systems. This window air conditioner is one of the quietest available. All of these features give you years of quiet operation and reliable performance.
