Portable Air Conditioners Usage Tips & Tricks

Portable Air Conditioners

Portable air conditioners are console units that can be moved from one room to another or to a different location such a storage shed or a pool house. The problems with portable air conditioners are that they are a bit more expensive than regular window units A\C’s and they consume more energy to keep a place cool during the cooling seasons.

Portable Air Conditioner Maintenance

As with all regular air conditioning systems, portable air conditioning systems also require repairs and/or maintenance from time to time. To keep your portable A\C running as smooth and efficient as possible, I recommend you check out Air-Conditioning Maintenance and Efficiency.

Ways to Increase the Efficiency (COP) of a Heat Pump System

Ways to Increase the Efficiency of a Heat Pump System

In times defined by energy conservation and need to save money on heating bills, many homeowners are looking for ways to reduce costs while not sacrificing the comfort of a heating system. There are a few things to consider and various tips that can serve to maximise the efficiency of a heat pump system. The main factor to consider is what is known as the Coefficient of Performance, or COP.

The COP is a measure of performance for heating pumps that is expressed in what is known as thermal efficiency. Essentially, the heat supplied to or taken from a reservoir is divided by the work of the pump. The greater the COP value, the more efficient the operating system (the less work the pump has to do to achieve optimum results). So, now that we have a basic grasp of this principle, let us look at several ways to improve the functionality of a heat pump system.

5 Things To Consider Before Buying A Heat Pump

Heat Pump Installation

A heat pump is a great option for heating and cooling the home, especially in warmer climates and when installed properly using a proper service provider, one can make it look trendy as well. A heat pump uses hot air to provide a home with both cool and warm air, depending on the season. This type of unit is very efficient and will save you money as well as headache. This option is also cheaper in cost than other types of units. There are five factors to consider when estimating cost of a new heat pump and we will list these factors below.

EFFICIENCY

Keeping your house warm can be done by paying low or high price for a heating and cooling unit. Efficiency is a big factor when it comes to pricing. The price of a new heat pump will increase as the efficiency rating goes up. However, the overall savings is well worth the additional cost. More efficiency means lower electricity bills year round.

How Heat Pump Works

How Heat Pump Works

A heat pump is an air conditioning and heating option that many homeowners take advantage of. A heat pump received its name because it moves the heat from one place in the home to another. This option takes heat from the outside and pumps it indoors and because it uses less energy, homeowners save money on their utility bill. For cooling, this unit will reverse the above cycle and make the home cool by taking the heat from inside the home and push it outdoors.

The heat pump option is a great choice if you are installing a new unit or are in need of a new unit for new construction. A heat pump is very efficient and can have an efficiency rating of 300%. It is important to understand how this system works and below we will list each part of a heat pump system.

How to Connect Exhaust Hose to Portable Air Conditioner

connect portable a/c exhaust hose

A portable air conditioners should be connected to an "exhaust hose" or "vent hose" to remove the the hot air they eject. Most portable air conditioners extract hot from the room in which it is located, that hot air is then discharged out the of the a/c unit. An exhaust hose can be connected to the portable ac unit to lead the warm air out of the window.

Home Cooling Systems

Home Cooling Systems

Normally our first thought for home cooling will be air conditioning, but there are many alternatives that provide home cooling while using less or no energy. With a combination of proper insulation, energy-efficient windows and doors, shading, and ventilation you will usually be able to keep a home cool with a low energy usage.
