The main reason why people are buying air conditioners is to stay comfortable during the hot weather. Air conditioners are best known for their ability to efficiently cool down an entire room to help you achieve your preferred temperature, but there are many units that actually offer much more with their additional features.
While cooling down a room is useful in finding the right ambience, it offers a very limited amount of comfort, especially for those days when you just want to stay relaxed without necessarily feeling a chill. Fortunately, many air conditioners today offer dehumidifiers to remove the moisture in the air and help you feel refreshed in a different way.
Here are some recommendations of air conditioners with dehumidifier functions!
Things to Consider
An air conditioner’s cooling capacity refers to its ability to lower the temperature of an entire room efficiently, and this is typically measured in British Thermal Units (BTU). As a rule, each square foot of a room will require 20 BTUs to cool down, but make sure to refrain from simply getting the unit with the highest cooling capacity as this can actually make a room too cold and put unnecessary stress on your air conditioner.
Type of Air Conditioner
There are different types of air conditioners to choose from, and each one has its own benefits. Portable air conditioners don’t occupy too much space and can be placed anywhere with an electrical outlet. Window air conditioners can be easily installed as they only need a large enough window. Mini-split air conditioners can cool a room more effectively due to their higher placement.
When choosing a type of unit, it’s best to assess the layout of the room and determine which kind of air conditioner will be the most appropriate. With that being said, it may be difficult to find mini-split air conditioners with a dehumidifying function.
Any air conditioner will come with additional costs. These don’t simply stop after purchasing the new unit as the unit will also require electricity to operate properly, leading to an increase in your utility bills. Furthermore, air conditioners require regular maintenance and cleaning to perform at their best for longer.
