Many Easton, Maryland, homes use window AC units for cooling in summer. While window units may seem like a cheap solution when compared with central air conditioning, they have significant drawbacks you need to consider. Overall, we recommend central air or ductless units as the safest and most energy-efficient way to cool your home.

Window AC Units Guzzle Energy

Although there are energy-efficient window units, using several to keep your home cool will lead to higher cooling costs than if you used a well-maintained central air system. If you’re sick of high energy bills, an Energy Star central air conditioning system will save you money each month.

They Block Your Windows

You have windows so you can get sunlight and fresh air into your home. When you have a window unit installed, you cannot open that window at all. The bulky equipment will block sunlight and fresh air.  If it is not installed properly, you can lose a lot of conditioned air because of gaps between the window frame and the unit.

They’re a Safety Hazard

An AC unit can fall out of the window if it is not well secured or installed by a professional. The window frame must be able to support the weight and size of the unit. They can also present an easy way for criminals to gain access to your home.

They Often Drip

A properly installed and maintained window unit shouldn’t drip. The reality is, though, that many of these units start to drip after a while. When that drip happens, it rusts any metal implements in the window unit. Plus, it can damage your drywall and your windowsill. If this not addressed, eventually mold and mildew could start to grow where the moisture accumulates.

Are you sick of your window AC units? The pros at Griffith Energy Services can get you on your way to installing central air conditioning. If installing ducts isn’t an option, ductless AC units are a worthwhile option for cooling your home efficiently. We’ll also help you choose the HVAC model that fits your budget and offers the features you want. Call today at 888-474-3391.
