Residential Units

Residential air conditioning units are either window air conditioners or thru the wall air conditioners. Either one of the two units can supply you with heating during the colder months, although this is not standard. These models come in varied BTU (British Thermal Unit) ranges, that span from 5,000 BTU to 36,000 BTU.

Unlike the average PTAC models these models come in varied sizes. For window air conditioning units the sizes vary much more than thru the wall models. When considering a window air conditioner you can go with a solid chassis unit, which is intended for bottom of the window installations, or a sleeved unit which can be installed on the upper part or the lower part of the window. Sleeved air conditioning units also offer better maintenance when needed. Most window air conditioning units come with a top bar and accordian type side panels in the box that the end user must properly attach to the unit.

With units that are built for thru the wall installations, there are also two styles, the solid chassis design as well as the open chassis design. Both of these designs require the appropriate matching sleeve to be installed for proper operation. The solid chassis design are rear ventilating. For the open chassis unit a sleeve also must be installed, but the sleeve and air conditioning unit must fit each other. Thru the wall air conditioning units can come with their own sleeve at times, when they do come with the sleeve they usually are not considered rear ventilating. But rather have ventilation on the sides and top of the sleeves. When installing an open chassis unit sleeve care and consideration must be taken to allow for proper ventilation of the unit through the vents on the sleeve.

Almost all air conditioning units today come with digital control panels and most models include remote controls. Having the digital control panel allows for more precise temperature control, as well as the added convenience of not having to continuously approach the air conditioner to adjust settings, when having a remote control. Some digital controlled air conditioning models also include timers built in as well as a sleep function.

All air conditioning units today are either 115 volt or 208 volt, when purchasing a new unit it is best to know what voltage is available as close to the unit as possible, as well as what amperage the line can handle.

Many companies will say they can repair Freon leaks on site. This IS False!

A Freon leak must be found and welded closed, the use of a torch is required.

This is the only proper way to repair the leak in your air conditioner or PTAC unit.

Also it is possible that the escaped R-22 Freon may cause a health risk. Although that is rare.

Companies will also claim to come and clean your air conditioning or PTAC unit on-site. Usually for a low cost fee.

Look at the list of steps we take for an average cooling unit in need of cleaning.

Would you do all those steps yourself for the price they offer?
I doubt it, and you should too.

Most important is that if your unit has mold in it, there never is any safe way to remove it on site..

Besides of all the steps we take, the cooling unit needs to completely dry prior to being plugged into the outlet to ensure no electrical damage to the unit.
