We are once again in the hot months of the year, and many are relying on their air conditioning to keep cool. Unless you have central air conditioning, you most likely have a window mounted air conditioning unit. These units can range from 5 to 23 thousand BTU, and you would need to decide whether you just want one or two large air conditioners or if you want to have several smaller ones.

It is important, however, whenever you decide on a large air conditioning unit that you make sure it has enough support underneath it to keep it from falling out. They are very heavy, and balancing them on a narrow window ledge is precarious. Many of the larger air conditioners come with brackets to install them into, but you will still need to make sure that the bracket is firmly attached.

With a single large unit, you can use fans to redirect the air into different areas of your home for better coverage.
