Tips from Deco Sister – 5 factors to consider before buying an air conditioner
Hi, welcome to Deco Sister’s Home Hack.
I am Deco Sister.
One of the most important things to do during renovation is to install an air conditioner.
As the air conditioner installation process is quite complicated, we have to prepare well for it.
There was a news that
the homeowner wanted to replace an air conditioner with larger capacity.
It turned out making it very troublesome to do so.
What factors should we consider before buying an air conditioner?
If you want a quiet air conditioner, you can buy a split-system air conditioner or a window split-system air conditioner.
Be aware that you may need to make bamboo scaffolding outside the apartment to install a split-system air conditioner.
Then you need to pay attention to the wire laying in the wall.
But it is expensive to do so.
The window air conditioner is more affordable and easier to install.
But the disadvantage is that it is noisier.
There are differences in inverter and non-inverter air conditioners.
The inverter one is quieter and uses less electricity.
There is a fixed position for window air conditioner.
If you choose split-system air conditioner,
you need to pay great attention to one thing
that many people may neglect,
that is where should you put the outdoor condenser.
People may spend a lot of time where to install the indoor unit
without thinking about the outdoor condenser.
The outdoor condenser takes warm air from outdoors.
Thus, don’t install to any place that direct sunlight can reach.
Otherwise, it cannot diffuse the heat efficiently.
Usually, we need to make bamboo scaffolding outside the apartment to install the outdoor condenser.
It can incur high maintenance fees in case there are any damages.
This is the point you may need to consider.
You will see the outdoor condensers are put in the balcony sometimes.
Thought it occupies places and does not look good,
it makes it easier for installation, maintenance and repair,
which can save you a lot of money in case there is any problem with the air conditioner.
This is the end of the video.
See you next time.
