Can you count how many AC units are installed in the WRONG location?
HINT: ONLY ONE (1) AC unit is installed in the best location for using the least amount of energy and having the Lowest electric cost.
Okay, give up counting. AC units are mounted through the building's wall, in the windows and the photo was taken in early May.
Even more AC units will be installed within a few weeks as the days get hotter!
So if they are all wrong except for one... Which one is correct? See the close up photo below for the answers.
REMEMBER: COLD AIR DROPS
So the HIGHEST location is the BEST location for your "COOLED AIR" to ENTER your room.
Let it be through a Vent or from a Window unit mounted in the window or through a wall, the fact remains: Higher up in the top half of the window or by the top of your wall is best and since AC units come with REMOTE CONTROLS... NO PROBLEM !
We hope this educational information is helpful to the people and maintenance office of this building and everyone else in our country.
Because each air conditioner installed wrong is wasting America energy and costing Americans money.
Every AC unit in this building should be mounted in the top half of the windows. Not the bottom of the windows and Never below the window through the walls!
Yet even today, new buildings are designed with below the window openings in the walls for AC units.
Is common sense dead in this country?
The government isn't teaching us this, nor are the Utility Companies.
