The old fashioned window or wall Window Air Conditioner Service can be the perfect way to get a good night’s sleep during a heatwave or simply to cool down the living room or kitchen.
First, let’s deal with the name. If you put it in a window, it’s a window air conditioner. Sometimes the unit is built into the wall and then, of course, it’s a wall air conditioner. So you will see them called window wall air conditioners. Another name is box air conditioner, which refers to the shape. To cover all bases for searches on the internet, they are even called window wall box air conditioners.
The benefits of window air conditioners are related to their simplicity. As a tried and tested technology, you can be completely confident they will perform the job of keeping you cool. The installation is pretty straightforward and the units themselves are definitely an affordable refrigerated air conditioning option.
Metropolitan Air Conditioning can supply and install any brand of window wall air conditioner you want and we can take away any old one. You don’t have to upgrade to a split system, especially if you have a wall air conditioner that is up for replacing in a small room.
Window air conditioners are quite enduring devices that last for a surprisingly long time. But they do need regular maintenance to perform at their best, heating and cooling your home. The most important thing to do is also something anyone can do and that is clean the filter.
The number one enemy of the smooth operation of your window air conditioner is dirt. It affects the efficiency of the evaporator coil and can jam the fan. It also blocks the drain. A service of your window air conditioner includes a thorough clean of the whole unit and a check of the major components. You can get such a service from Metropolitan. Metropolitan also repairs window air conditioners when it is feasible to do so.
It all depends on the age, brand and model that you have. A more recent unit may just need a part replaced, but the older a unit is, the less likely the part will still be available and the more likely any repair will be an expensive short term patch-up that will fail. If the unit has seriously failed and a major component is broken, replacement of the whole unit is usually a much more cost effective option. An up-to-date box air conditioner is more energy efficient and effective and will be the best long term heating and cooling solution.
