April is finally here, which means the weather will soon be warming up. Air conditioners may be the last things on your mind these days, but wait until the next few months when you find yourself sweating through your clothes at least five times a day. It may be time to make your next major appliance purchase of a brand new window air conditioner for your home or apartment. You don’t know how to install a window unit? No worries, that’s what we’re here for!
Use a Support Bracket: Keep your air conditioner from plummeting to the ground below by purchasing a support bracket for your window unit. These are easy to install and will provide you with added security for your air conditioners. The last thing you want is one of these falling out of the window before you even have the chance to use it.
Protect the Window’s Frame: Protect your window’s frame by purchasing foam to place around the window unit. This will keep any of the wood framing from cracking or breaking under the pressure of the unit. This will also help to insulate your room and keep it cooler during warmer weather.
Tip the Unit Towards the Outside: Window units periodically drain water out of the air conditioner, which often leak onto your home or apartment. It is a good idea to tip your major appliances towards the outside of your building so the excess water will drip onto the street or lawn below.
