Mobile Air Conditioners
If you remember the portable air conditioning units from yesteryear you will be pleasantly surprised at today’s mobile units. They have many advantages over central air conditioning and window ac units for pre-existing construction and make the perfect choice for spot cooling.
Installing central air conditioning in a pre-existing home can be expensive. You may have found that as the climate warms the summer months are more unbearable than before and you now need air conditioning to cool your home. Instead of investing in costly renovation it is a great idea to look at mobile air conditioners.
Mobile units are portable and can be moved from room to allowing to you only cool the areas needed. This can be very cost efficient, a big plus in today’s economy. Mobile units are set on casters for easy portability.
Mobile air conditioning units are also aesthetically pleasing. Where before your only choice may have been to install a cumbersome window ac unit and block your view, a portable air conditioner can be a pleasing addition to your décor. The air conditioners casement is designed to fit into any room unobtrusively.
The only requirement for installing a mobile air conditioner is a nearby window and an electrical outlet. The unit comes with an easy to operate hose that, once placed outside the window, will drain the condensation and exhaust away from the unit and out of your home. By following the easy to install instructions that come with each mobile ac you will be able to have a fresh blast of cold air in less than 15 minutes.
Upkeep is just as simple for these fantastic mobile units. A quick wipe down of the exterior parts and a yearly change of filters is all that is necessary to keep a portable ac up and running for years to come.

The majority of models now come with timers which allow you to set the unit to turn on and off at specific times. They also have adjustable fan settings and cooling settings for your comfort. As a bonus you can operate your unit from anywhere in the room by remote control.
