It’s hot and humid in Chicago; chances are, it will be this way for many, many months. Abt has five types of air conditioners: window, wall, casement, portable, and central A/C units. Now is the time to think about air conditioning!
When looking at air conditioners, consider they type of home you live in, how much space or how many rooms you would like to cool, what floor you will be air conditioning which direction the windows are facing, are you cooling the kitchen, and how many people live in the home.
If you have a large space then you will need a more powerful unit that has a higher number of British Thermal Units or BTUs. A BTU measures the amount of energy an air conditioner will consume. So, if you have a large space to cool, then you will want a unit with more BTUs than you would if you are cooling a small room. Also, increase the number of BTUs when you are cooling sunny areas, rooms on the second floor or higher, a kitchen, or a residence where more than three people live.
