Despite the fact that many places experience hot summers, not every home is equipped with an air conditioning system to keep your indoor air at a comfortable level. This can make summers very hot and sticky for those who do not have access to an air conditioner. If your home does not have the luxury of some sort of central air system, a window air conditioner could be the answer to your warm woes. This type of A/C unit is designed to fit within your window and basically blow cool air into the home. Some advantages that you might see with such a unit include ease of installation, low cost of energy, and their overall affordability.
When a central air conditioning system needs to be installed in a home, it usually means that there is a lot of ductwork and home structure work that needs to be completed. It is basically a remodeling process until the system is fully installed, which can put a large dent in your wallet and schedule. One of the main benefits of a window air conditioner is that it does not require extensive installation. Many are fairly slim and will not take up the entirety of the window in which you choose to install it. You should be able to install the unit on your own by following the directions. This usually involves adjusting the unit into your window safely and making sure the unit has a power source.
Large air conditioning systems can end up costing quite a bit of money to operate. In addition, a lot of air might go into rooms that are rarely used or occupied. By placing them in a window that is closest to the areas you want cooled, you could actually save a lot of money over some other types of air conditioning.
Instead of spending the time and money on installing a central air system, for a fraction of the cost you can get a new window air conditioning unit that still meets your needs and, as mentioned above, costs less to operate. Other benefits of a window air conditioner includes automatic settings that allow the conditioner to start and stop when desired, and the ability to use remote controls with certain units. If you live in an area that gets both cold and warm, we would recommend buying a window unit that offers both heating and cooling options.
A window air conditioner is a very efficient and convenient appliance that cools your home for a fraction of the cost that a central air system would take. Window units are fairly affordable to purchase and operate, and you should be able to install it in your home with very little effort. Once you know the width of the window where the air conditioner will go, you can really start narrowing down your search for the perfect unit.
General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
