How To Install A Portable Ac?

Portable A/cs have become very popular in the recent times on account of their portability. They can be moved from room to room. They are suitable for rooms that are in the interior part of the house without any window or other opening. They are used particularly in server rooms which are small and poky without any opening. Moreover these standalone units can be kept on operation over the weekends without turning on your central A/c to keep your server room cool. The standalone units look quite attractive when kept in one of the corners of the room. Some homeowner’s association in the US has banned the use of window A/cs as a conspicuous part of these A/cs protrude outside the window. Portable air conditioners do not have any pieces that will protrude from your window, therefore will not violate such regulations. The biggest advantage of portable A/cs is easy process of installation. You will receive a window kit with the unit through which you will place a small exhaust. This is to remove the heat that was extracted by the air conditioner from your room, to the surrounding. Another advantage of a portable air conditioner is that it has more flexible installation options. It can easily be moved from window to window as you want to cool different rooms. It can also be attached to an opening in the door with the help of an extended portable air conditioner installation kit. Portable air conditioner can also be vented through the ceiling using a ceiling vent kit. This design of portable air conditioners is very popular in server rooms.

How to install a portable easy

Here are same easy ways to get our portable a/c installed within short while.

• Connect the hose(s). Some of the units come with double hoses. Follow the manufacturer’s manual to connect them.

• You will get a window kit with your portable ac. This is adjustable. Extend the length of your kit to fit your window perfectly. You can trim the window bracket to fit your window snugly. There will be screws in the kit to secure the window kit in place. Once you fitted the kit, close your window.

• Some models have mechanisms where the excess water is used in some other purposes. If you have a model that can drained then look out for a small spout sticking out the back end. Once you locate the spout, get a tube or pipe of appropriate diameter that can be aligned and connected to the spout in the machine. The tubing should be long enough to reach a proper dumping source. A window, sink, or drain is perfect for this. If you get none of these in the vicinity, you can use a bucket and then occasionally empty it as you go.

Some units do not have spouts. They only have a drip pan. You have to open the drip pan which is located at the bottom of the unit and empty its contents into bucket. If the drip pan is not available readily on the unit, then unit is supposed to drain itself.
