Window Air Conditioners

Are you looking for a simple solution to beating the heat of summer? The old-fashioned window or wall air conditioner can be the perfect way to get a good night’s sleep during a heatwave. Upside Down is a 24/7 service that has the experience to install and maintain these popular units.

What’s the Correct Name? Window or Wall ACs?

This is a unit with two different names. If you put it in a window, it’s a window air conditioner. If you build it into a wall, it’s a wall air conditioner.

Yes, it’s that simple. So, you will see these units under both names and sometimes as window wall air conditioners.

Another name is box air conditioner, which refers to the shape of the unit. You may even see them listed as window wall box air conditioners. But don’t let all the names confuse you, they’re all similar units.

The benefits of window air conditioners are in their simplicity. They’ve been around for a while and, as a tried-and-tested technology, you can be completely confident that they will perform the job of keeping you cool when you need it.

The installation is straightforward and the units themselves are definitely an affordable refrigerated air conditioning option. Upside Down can supply and install any brand of window wall air conditioner and even take away your old one, if required.

The Many Benefits of Window Air Conditioners

The many benefits of window wall air conditioners include:

  • Low cost – One of the main advantages of window air conditioners is they won’t break the bank.
  • Energy efficient – An important benefit of a window air conditioner is they’re cost-effective to run.
  • Easy to install – While the process may differ slightly depending on the model, it’s a simple process that most people will be able to do.
  • Doesn’t take up floor space – They are designed to fit in a window, so they don’t up any floor space in your home.
  • It keeps one room cool – Great for cooling one room and not wasting energy on rooms you’re not in.
  • Versatile – Most of these units are reverse cycle and can warm your home as well.
  • Portable – While it’s a bit of a hassle to move from room to room, window air conditioners are portable.

If you’re satisfied with your window wall air conditioner, there’s no need to upgrade to a split system. It’s easier and a lot cheaper to put in a new window or wall AC unit than install a new split system air conditioner.

Even a window air conditioner can be a challenge for some people – they are heavy to lift, after all – so Upside Down can help you with installation if you need it.

Please remember that Upside Down can only help you to install a new unit, not a used one. However, we can service an older unit.

Window Air Conditioner Servicing

Window air conditioners are quite enduring appliances that last for a surprisingly long time. But, like other heating and cooling systems, they do need regular maintenance to perform at their best. It’s also important to keep the filter clean.

The detriment to your window AC unit working well is dirt. It affects the efficiency of the evaporator coil and can clog up the fan and block the drain. A service of your air conditioner by Upside Down will include a thorough clean of the whole unit and a check of the major components.

We can service and repair window wall air conditioners when it is feasible to do so. It all depends on the age, brand and model you have.

A more recent unit may just need a part replaced, but the older a unit is, the less likely the part will still be available. In such a case, any repair might be an expensive short-term fix.

It may be a more cost-effective option to buy a new unit for a long-term solution. That’s another thing Upside Down can help you with. We’ve got the heating and cooling knowledge and can recommend the latest window air conditioners on the market.

Window Air Conditioner Installation

Sure, we’ve pointed out how simple it is to install a window wall air conditioner, but a lot of people just don’t have the DIY skills. We’ve all seen those terrible installations with pieces of plywood plugging the gaps and the unit hanging precariously out of a window.

Getting an experienced technician from Upside Down to install your new AC unit might be a preferable option. That way it will look good and will be safe and secure. We can even install a new powerpoint for you, if needed.

One of the drawbacks of window air conditioners is that they can be a point of entry for burglars. Your qualified Upside Down technician will make sure that it isn’t a weak point in your home security.
