Cheap air conditioning

Cheap air conditioning is available for second hand or the brands of companies that manufacture ACs and are not well known. There are many types of air conditioners, the car air conditioner, the wall air conditioner, the central air conditioner, the portable system and the split system air conditioner. Most air conditioners have the following similar parts, the compressor, the condenser, the evaporator, the expansion valve and the drier or accumulator. These parts are interconnected using pipes and valves. Refrigerant is the fluid which is also highly volatile that transports heat from one component to another. The air conditioner basically starts working when you turn on the AC and the refrigerant goes to the compressor where it is compressed and absorbs heat and changes from liquid to gas. Then it goes to the condenser where it is cooled sometimes in some systems the condenser may be fitted with an electric fan. After being cooled and changing back to liquid the refrigerant moves to the evaporator where it is cooled further and then air is blown across it for it to become cool and this cool air is then blown into your environment. The refrigerant then absorbs the heat from the air blown and it reverts to a gas. The drier removes any impurities on the refrigerant using filters and desiccant to absorb any moisture. The expansion valve controls how cool the air you receive will be. Then the process takes place over and over until the room is cooled. This is also known as refrigeration cycle. Before acquiring a unit you should check how energy efficient it is and for some of the appliances industries they offer free installation of your unit. A cheap unit can cost from $100-2000.Major cheap companies are Haier, LG and Kenmore. The air conditioners capacity can be determined using BTUS.A British Thermal unit is the energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit. The cheap air conditioning can only range between 5000 to 10000 BTUs. Most of the 6000 BTUs units will cost around $170.It is important for you to have the dimensions of the area you are going to install your unit. Getting a larger unit than you need will raise your bills while a unit too small will always be on as it does not sufficiently alter the room’s temperature. The air conditioners from the same company will differ in capacity even though they have similar function. The air conditioner you pick should have all the features you require to keep your home cool.

When your AC starts making noise as it operates this could indicate a problem with the compressor. The compressor is the central part of the air conditioner. It acts like the pump that pushes the refrigerant through the whole AC system. The technician will first do a diagnosis of the system before trying to fix anything. Then he will fix and recharge your system with refrigerant as indicated by the manufacturer.
