An Air Conditioner is different from an electric fan. While a fan needs direct exposure to cool an air conditioner does not. It is designed to cool a space not a location.

During installation, you should ensure that all holes, open window spaces, and, vents are blocked. This ensures that the AC will cool the room without more heat coming in from other rooms.

Ensure that the power supply rating of the air conditioner is compatible with local standards for voltage. Voltage power rating in the US is 110v-115v, 60Hz while that of the UK, Nigeria and most African countries is 210v-250v, 50 Hz.

Similarly you should also ensure that the current rating of the cooling unit or system can be supported by your existing wall socket if not you need to install another wall socket. Air conditioners use lots of power so you may have to install a dedicated power socket or switch.

Connecting your appliances into sockets with lower capacity than required will cause over heating which may lead to a fire outbreak.

Always read the manufacturer’s user manual of your air conditioner. In it you will find lots of information to help you with your A/C operation. It will also guide you on maintenance and cleaning procedures.
