4 Benefits of Using a Window A/C

4 Benefits of using window A/C units to cool your home

While the climate in Hawaii is fairly mild year-round, there are many days you want cool relief from the tropical temperatures. For those times, you can install window units to regulate the temperature in each room. Below are a few reasons these units continue to be so popular.

1. Low Cost
If you want air conditioning, window units are probably your least expensive option. Because you’re only buying a small unit, you don’t have to put in any ductwork, which results in a drastically lower cost.

2. Easy to Install
As the name implies, this type of air conditioner is installed in a window, which means you can skip the cost of professional installation. Each window unit comes with instructions, so nearly every homeowner can install it on their own. You may need someone to help lift and place the unit, but it should be a quick process.

3. Energy Efficient
Window air conditioners are extremely energy efficient. Instead of traveling through ductwork like central systems, they blow the cool air directly into the room. A window unit also uses less power than other alternatives, which is good news for your electric bill.

4. Small Footprint & Portability
Window units are great for small apartments and tiny homes. They don’t take up extra floor space, and they are portable. So if you move to a new home, you can take the window air conditioner with you instead of purchasing a new one.
