Types Serviced

What type of portable or window A/C unit do you have? While air conditioners all work by basically the same mechanisms, there are some differences in design. Fixed-chassis window air conditioners, which fit in an open window and vent hot air out the sides, top and back, are among the most common. Short, wide units are available for double-hung windows, and tall, skinny units are made to fit into slider and casement windows.

Portable air conditioners sit on the floor underneath or near a window and vent hot air through a duct that runs out the window. These air conditioners come with single or double-hose configurations. Double-hose portable air conditioners work faster and more efficiently than single-hose units.

Saddle-style air conditioners combine the best of both portable and window A/Cs. They fit securely over the window sill, hanging down on both sides of the window. If you’re concerned about dropping a unit out the window, the saddle design could ease your mind and make installation easier.

All units will come with equipment to seal the gaps between the unit and the window. If you’re installing a unit in a casement or slider window, you may need some additional plywood or plexiglass to seal the rest of the window above the unit.

Should You Repair Or Replace Your Window or Portable A/C Unit?

Portable and window A/C units are much cheaper than central air conditioners, so they’re a popular and viable option for homes that aren’t equipped with central cooling. Of course, even if you have central air, you probably have at least one room in your house that doesn’t seem to get as cool as the others. Many homeowners use window and portable A/C units in conjunction with central air to cool specific rooms, or to save on cooling costs.

But because portable and window air conditioners are so cheap, it may not be worth having them fixed. Depending on the size of your unit and how much it cost, if your repair is more than a couple hundred dollars, it may be worth just buying a new one.

Portable and Window A/C Maintenance

Like any machine, window and portable air conditioners perform best when they are properly maintained. At the beginning of the season, before you put your window A/C in the window, remove the outer cover and vacuum the condenser coils with a soft brush attachment. Check the coil for bent cooling fins, and use a fin comb to straighten them carefully.

On both a portable and a window A/C unit, you should remove and clean the air filter with warm, soapy water and bleach before you start running the appliance for the season. If the air filter is damaged, replace it. Clean the grill, too. Drain any water from the condensate pan and clean it with bleach to remove mold or mildew. Throughout the season, remember to clean your air conditioner’s air filter regularly -- at least once a month. Check the water pan on the inside of your window unit. Empty and clean it as necessary. 

For portable air conditioners, drain the condensation tank regularly and clean any detachable hoses or pipes with a 50/50 water and vinegar solution. Run the machine on fan-only mode for half an hour after internal parts have been cleaned, to dry the unit and eliminate the vinegar smell.
