There is no feeling like coming home from the heat of a summer afternoon to turn on the air conditioner unit to cool off. Lucky enough air conditioner has come a long way in the last decade. Much progress has been made for the more pleasant conditioning of homes, offices, hospitals and countless other places. Not only that, but it can also save people money with the most efficient methods that are being used for refrigeration. For those who love to be extra cold, no matter what.

There are several types of air conditioners been used by the Americans. These are; portable air conditioners, window or wall-mounted air-conditioning, split unit air conditioner, and central air conditioners.

One of the most common questions in our mind, when we want to buy an air conditioner, is, what air conditioner will be the best for me? It is difficult, especially for someone other than the air conditioner sector, to find out which is the best air conditioner out of the numerous brand in the market. The fact is that every brand of air conditioner has its own advantages and disadvantages. Even for an expert in the industry or specialist, it would be difficult at times to say exactly what brand is indeed the best.

Square meters of your home: The size of your house should determine the size of air conditioner you need. The larger your house, the more powerful your air conditioning unit should be.

•The condition of windows and doors Seals: Leaky, cracked or dry seals around doors and windows allow outside air to enter and indoor air escapes.

•Roof heights: High ceilings mean more displacement of air (warm air rises).

•The insulation of the attic and the wall: Old, thin or inefficient insulation allows the heat to escape through all the faces of your home.

•Drafts: larger windows allow air to be filtered in your home, and wider door frames encourage a constant flow of outside air.
