Stationary air conditioners - how to use them correctly

Free-standing air conditioners: correctly used for effective cooling

Kategorien: Modernise Home

Especially in the hot summer months, the desire to air condition living spaces and the interiors of buildings in general is increasing. Wherever a central air conditioning system is not already available, stationary air conditioners offer quick remedies. However, there are a number of aspects to be considered when using these flexible cooling units.

How the stationary air conditioners work
Stationary air conditioners basically function in the same way as permanently installed air conditioners. In a refrigeration unit, a cooling liquid is compressed, which produces the desired cold when it expands again afterwards. A fan guides air over the cooling surfaces and then releases it into the room.

The heat generated during compression, on the other hand, is dissipated to the outside and, depending on the model, removed in different ways. Either, in the case of complex units, the cooling is generated directly via an outdoor unit located outside, so that the heat can be released directly. Alternatively, most stationary air conditioners rely on an exhaust air hose, through which the warm air from the compressor can be transported from the air conditioner inside to the outside.

The following must be observed when using the stationary air conditioners
If you decide to use a stationary air conditioner, there are several things to consider. One of the most important aspects is the issue of air circulation. Since stationary air conditioners distribute the cold produced by circulating air in the room, the outlet and air sampling openings should be as unobstructed as possible. Installation in angles, corners or other obstructive environments also at least reduces the cooling capacity.

The situation is completely different when it comes to the removal of the warm air that is generated. Here, it is essential to prevent this heat from reaching the room to be cooled in an uncontrolled manner. Opening a window in order to lead the widespread exhaust air hose to the outside usually allows more heat to enter from outside than the air conditioner can even compensate for. It is therefore worth making a suitable opening, for example in the form of a suitable blind panel, for units with an exhaust air hose.

Finally, stationary air conditioners usually generate a relatively high noise level via the required compressor. Installation directly in bedrooms or other noise critical areas should therefore be avoided. Although stationary air conditioners require a power supply for operation, the energy requirement is completely within the scope of the existing infrastructure. Therefore, additional precautions are usually not necessary.

Conclusion - How to achieve a cool interior by using mobile stationary air conditioners
Mobile air conditioners are the means of choice for effective cooling wherever there is no permanently installed air conditioning system. With a free installation site and a planned and controlled removal of the warm air that is generated, nothing stands in the way of the desired coolness.
