My AC... leave it in? Take it out? Do I need storage?

What should you do with your air conditioner during the fall/winter months? It depends on you, but we strong advise our customers to take their units out of the window during the off season.

The next question on many individual's minds is "Do I need storage?"

It truly depends on you, but we advise against storing your unit in a public facility. It may sound like a good idea, but you're exposing your unit to unsanitary storage facilities. You may find bed bugs, mold and fungus accumulated at these locations.

Truthfully, the best place is the bottom of a closet, once the AC has been removed.

Call use to schedule a removal!

Buying an Air Conditioner - Which One? What size? What store?

Now that we've had a mini heat wave, most New Yorkers realize that we're going to have a very warm summer. So many people call us asking questions... so we thought we'd put together a post that will simplify your air conditioner purchase and installation in New York City.

1. What size unit do I need? What the hell is BTU? Stands for British Thermal Unit. What does it mean? Well ... the more you have, the more powerful your A/C is. You buy one according to the size of your bedroom. Here is a great chart! Look at the chart below. If you live on the top floor of your building and it is VERY hot or you have an apartment with several windows, a larger units is a good way to go. So if you live in Soho, and you live on the  TOP floor of your building, the chart below says that you should get a 10k, unit for your studio since it is 350 square feet. We advise you to increment that number by 2 and get a 12k. Poorly insulated buildings need more powerful units.

2. Which air conditioner should I buy? It is safe to say that buying an air conditioner is like a car. You get what you pay for in most instances. We recently wrote a post that discussed your best options. Check it out here.

3. Now that you know what you want... you want to know where. The problem with department stores is that they try to push things on you that you may not need. Remember, those people work on commission! You can order from our online store and save %10 on installation.

Simply visit our online store. Remember you can reference the chart above and the article above so you will have an idea of what to get.

Select your unit, purchase and schedule with us! You'll save and avoid long lines in the process!

Your Air Conditioner Brand - Which model should you buy?

Americans are familiar with most brand names. Whether you're talking cars or sneakers.

However, when it comes to the wonderful world of air conditioning, most New Yorkers still need help making the best decision.

This post is going to be about which brand air conditioner is best for you!

First up, FRIEDRICH. Think of these as luxury cars. If you can afford these air conditioners, you're making a great investment. The engineering and performance are hard to beat. If you want to make a solid investment, go with FRIEDRICH. It the Cadillac of air conditioners.

Over the last few years, Frigidaire has really improved and we'd have to say that they're moving in on Friedrich. These units are best in the 5,000 BTU to 10,000 BTU range, when you consider how much you save. In fact, some smaller units will perform just as good, if not better than Friedrich. The only reason they're not at the top in our post, is that they're larger units aren't as powerful as Friedrich or as cost effective as LG. Think of these as almost luxury cars. Like Honda Accords or Nissan Maximas... wait, do they even make those anymore? :-) 

LG has it's own special space. When you're considering air conditioners in the 12,000 BTU - 18,000 BTU range, LGs are the best bang for your buck! These large units work really well and they're not as expensive as Friedrich or Frigidaire. Think of these as 4x4 pickups. Big units that work really well! 

These are solid air conditioners in the 5,000 - 10,000 BTU range. They're efficient units that perform well. Think Honda Accord here. 

We don't like Haier units. It has nothing to do with their performance, it has to do with BAD engineering. The smaller units are inexpensive and the have the tendency to make too much noise. Think Pinto here or bad used car. Like Kris Kross said... "Wiggity Wiggity Wack!"

Your Air Conditioner Installation -- The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Summer is upon us New Yorkers. So many people want to know if their current air conditioner installation is sufficient. We want to discuss a few things that can help you determine what kind of installation you have.

The Good 

It was installed by us. We're professional installers! We specialize in installing window air conditioners! Even if we did not install your unit, it should always be installed by a professional installer. Why? A pro will look at the window frame, the air conditioner chassis and other components to provide the best install. Trust us, not as easy as it looks or we make it look!

The Bad

We classify these as air conditioners that are in the window, possibly cooling but not secure. You have a BAD installation if there is wood, bricks or a pile of books supporting the air conditioner. This is dangerous. You may not know this, but your air conditioner is not designed to be level. It slightly leans, and the water drains from the rear.

A bad installation will also have bad or no insulation. This will cause the unit to run harder, and you'll see an increase in your electricity bill.

The Ugly

This is just awful. The unit is getting ready to fall out of the window. Or even worse, you don't have the unit in the window properly!

Chinatown Air Conditioner Installation

We're all city. Chinatown is one of our favorite places in the city. More importantly, we've noticed that the majority of the buildings have older wiring and can't support 220 volt air conditioners. Keep this in mind when you purchase a window air conditioner over 15,000 BTU.

You need to make sure the existing electrical wiring can support the AC you intend on purchasing.

If you living in Chinatown and need a AC install, feel free to reach out to us.

New York City: Energy and your Air Conditioner

1. Energy Saver: Consider investing in an Energy Saver air conditioner. Especially if you have an older air conditioner that you've inherited from your parents, or you're still using the air conditioner you purchased 10 years ago.

2. Power Off - Power off the unit when you're not home. No need to keep the unit running when you're at work,. If you have pets, set the thermometer to desired temperature.

3. Lighting - Try to cut down on the light from the sun.  The less light, the better. Utilize shades and blinds to keep light out of the room.

4. Cleaning - Clean your filter once a month. This will help your unit run much better.

Window Air Conditioner Power - Do you have it?

Most of us refer to the image above as a "three prong" outlet. The technical term is a 110 volt outlet and it is found in most residences.

This is particularly important for your air conditioner purchase. Larger air conditioner units, require a 220 volt outlets. They look like the following:

We've seen instances where a customer ordered an air conditioner, and once they open the box, they realize that they don't have the proper outlet. Usually resulting in frustration, because they have to ask an electrician to wire a 220v outlet and this isn't always possible!

Window Air Conditioner Installation Pitfalls in New York City

Each year, Air Conditioner New York spends time answering questions and we want to help our clients out as best we can. So we thought we'd put together a list of taboos for the season. Pitfalls that you need to avoid.

1. Don't try to install your air conditioner on your own. Sorry guys and gals. If you haven't done this before, this is not a good time to experiment. Guys, time to swallow your pride. No need to TRY and impress your lady friend or wife. You can probably install your toilet bowl, but when you want it done right, you call the plumber. A number of our clients have tried to do this on their own and dropped their air conditioners, resulting in damaged units. You'll feel better about your ego when you're laying in a COOL apartment.

2. Don't remove your air conditioner. See that AC that has been in the window for the past few months or since you moved into your apartment? Ready to move it and get a new one? What you don't know is that the person who installed it before you did it incorrectly, he used wood, glue, bum, tar, cotton, cheese, rubber cement and everything else that he was not suppose to use. You're trying to remove it and you don't know why. We've see it all. Don't hurt yourself.

3. Don't let "The Super" do it - Your super is a great guy. He can take out the trash and put your heat on. He doesn't know anything about air conditioners. So, when he installs it incorrectly, and gives you what is a bad installation, your unit can leak water back into your apartment or even worse you can wind up with a warped chassis. If your super knew how to install air conditioners, he would NOT be a super. He'd work for us!

4. Don't let the delivery guys do it. If you want to buy your unit from a location in the city, fine. Don't let those guys do it. They're underpaid and under-qualified workers who don't know how to install units properly. Call a professional installer.

5. Don't wait until June. Everyone needs an air conditioner. Just like you need a refrigerator. Don't wait until a heat wave to buy one. During the season, installation prices are higher and it is harder to get an installation.

6. Don't pay to much. Department stores overcharge for air conditioner installs. Your installation should not cost the same amount as your unit. There are occasions where special installs will cost more, but a standard install should not be the same price as your unit!

7. The get scammed in the department stores - Department store cashiers love to make you scared. When you're scared, you buy and their numbers go up. They make their quotas and you wind up with things you don't need. If your building specifies the need for a bracket, then you need one. Otherwise, it isn't mandatory.

8. Don't buy from the small electronics guy on the corner. Mom and Pop stores are good for batteries and such, but if your unit breaks down, you need a vendor who will honor the return.

9. Get a receipt and the name of your installer! Always try to leave the door open when the installer visits and ask for the individuals name.

10. Call us! No one else gives you this kind of advice! We do it because we love you! Remember AIR CONDITIONER NEW YORK!

My AC is Too Noisy! Can you help?

Your air conditioner is making noise. The window is shaking or the unit sounds abnormally loud. You stick something underneath, like a tennis ball, or something, but you know the unit is NOT suppose to make the noise it is making.

Usually, this happens when a unit is improperly installed. Your chassis is later warped and this results in a fan scraping against a location it should not. Feel free to call us so that we can address the issue. Also check out this page on air conditioner soundproofing.

I have central air, can I have a window unit?

So you live in an apartment building and your central air conditioning doesn't cool your apartment adequately. You want to know if you can have a window unit installed. 

This happens all of the time. The answer is usually yes. Check with the management company for your building. Explain the situation and call us over for a visit. 

In most instances, the companies will go allow you to have a window unit, even if you have central air.

Water is dripping on my Air Conditioner! ARGH!

You just purchased your new air conditioner. It works great. Your place is nice and  cool. Then, you hear a disturbing sound. You realize that your neighbor, who lives above you has his/her air conditioner on and it is dripping onto your unit.

You talk to your neighbor and they don't have a solution.

You call us and we work with you to create an easy solution because we've seen this happen a number of times.

We install the solution. You go back to being cool and eventually become good friends with your neighbor.

You have a productive and COOOOOOL summer.

Pigeons and Your Air Conditioner

We personally don't have any problems with pigeons, but when they're bothering our customers, that is a problem.

Some of our customers have a problem with noise, other have problems with pigeons creating nest under their units, which results in a multitude of problems, not to mention it being unsanitary.

We can work with you to install pigeon guards on top of or beneath your air conditioner.

One of our customers was asked "I wonder where the pigeons go at night?"

She responded "They're living under my air conditioner!"

Contact us for a quick solution!

Need us to inspect your air conditioners?

Are you a management company that is concerned about the air conditioners that are installed in your building(s). 

This year, we're offering assessments of air conditioners. Reach out to us about assessment in March or April. 

Many individuals in the city have wood, books and bricks propped up underneath their units. We speak about this during one of our podcast.
