Understanding the Different Types of Air-Conditioners takes a little time to get used to it.

You’re probably going to think “What? Can’t be Accurate, because you can already just mount it into the wall? “It’s not that Clear-Cut Sadly. There are Different Types of Air-Conditioner units on the market so it is Important to Determine which Model is Best suited to your rooms.

Wall vs Window Air Conditioner

The most frequently used are Wall-Mounted and Window units. As their names suggest, the former is Permanently Sealed to, or Mounted on, the Exterior wall, while the latter fits right into the Existing Window. Both come with their Pros and Cons; having a wall Air-Conditioner means that you don’t have to give up your Window Space and are much more Economical in the long run. The Downside, however, is that Installation costs may be Higher (because you’re likely to need to Create openings).

Please Note that if you plan to Ia wall Air-Conditioner in your HDB unit, you will need a trained BCA Air-Conditioner Technician to assist you. In Addition, you must Submit an Installation Report to your Respective HDB branch within 14 days of Installation.

On the other hand, Window Air-Conditioners are easy to Install without Professional Assistance. They come in a Variety of Sizes that can fit Vertical , Horizontal or Sliding Windows. Irrespective of the Configuration, the most Important Thing to Note before buying one is to make sure that you take Accurate Measurements of your window so that it fits Perfectly.

Inverter vs non-inverter

You’re bound to come across these terms if you’re thinking about getting a Wall Air-Conditioner. In short, Inverter Air-Conditioners run on a Variable Speed Compressor, while Non-Inverter Varieties operate at Full Load whenever the Compressor is Switched On.

Still, it sounds like Quantum Physics? Essentially, the Inverter Air-Conditioner Compressor reduces its running speed once the Desired Temperature is reached. This differs from Non-Inverter Air-Conditioners, which have Fixed-Speed Compressors that run only at Full or Minimum Capacity.

System 2/3/4/5

The figure represents the ratio of the number of Indoor Units to one Outdoor Unit. For Example, the System 3 Air-Conditioner unit will consist of 3 Indoor Units to 1 Outdoor Unit. The System Combination you choose depends on the number of rooms you like to have Air-Conditioners in. So, if you want to have Air-Conditioners for all three rooms plus a living room in your 4-room BTO, you’ll probably get System 4.

The Size of your Rooms is more Important than you Think

Bigger doesn’t Necessarily mean better when it comes to Air-Conditioners. Smaller Rooms do not need Powerful Air-Conditioners to Cool Down (or, in this case, make it look like a Freezer Compartment) or do you want to Install an Air-Conditioner that cannot Cool the Entire Room Area.

Thankfully, there’s a Simple way to Determine the Ability of the Air-Conditioner to Cool the Room. All Air-Conditioners are Equipped with a Standard British Thermal Unit (BTU) rating, which Measures their Cooling Capacity. How much BTUs you need for a Room is Calculated by Multiplying the Square Foot of that room by 35.

There are Several other Factors that will have an Impact on the Overall BTU of the room. If the Room Faces the Afternoon Sun, you’ll Need to Add another 10% to the total. Conversely, you can Subtract 10% if the room doesn’t get a lot of sunlight.

The use of the room also Influences the Recommended BTUs. Kitchens tend to be Warmer due to Heavy Cooking, so if you Install an Air-Conditioner, you should add 4,000 BTUs. Living rooms have the Largest Floor Area in the Property and usually Accommodate more than two people at any time, so it is Necessary to Add between 600-800 BTU per person (depending on the size of your household).

Just by figuring out the BTUs per Room do you Calculate how many Air-Conditioning units you will Need, as well as the Total Amount you will have to pay per unit purchased.
