Air Conditioner Terminology & Safety
Whether you rent or own your home, it’s a good idea to learn about the heating and cooling system in your home.
BTU: BTU stands for British Thermal Unit and is the measurement of energy used internationally to either heat or cool. Higher BTU ratings result in a larger, heavier and more expensive air conditioner, however, air conditioners with lower BTU ratings cannot efficiently cool a large area.
EER: EER stands for Energy Efficiency Ratio, and you can find the EER of an air conditioner by dividing the BTU by the number of watts. Ratings range between 8 and 11.5, and a higher EER should result in a more energy efficient appliance.
Did you know that Energy Star rated appliances qualify as being friendly to the environment and are capable of reducing the amount of energy used?
Many homeowners and property owners attempt to install or service heating and cooling systems on their own. There are several simple steps you can take to keep your air conditioner working properly such as replacing the air filter regularly and changing the batteries in an electric thermostat. But some maintenance and repairs should only be done by professionals as they pose a serious risk of injury or harm.
- When installing a new air conditioner, always check the voltage of the outlet before you plug in the unit. If the A/C unit requires a higher voltage, call a professional to add a circuit. Likewise, if your new heating and cooling system has an irregular plug, hire a professional to install an accommodating outlet. Do not alter a plug to fit an outlet.
- Always make sure a window unit is secured. Falling units can cause serious injury and plenty of damage to objects below.
- Always unplug the equipment before doing any at-home maintenance, especially when cleaning or repairing near fans or motors.
