Some of the most popular air conditioners are the floor standing air conditioners. If you are still not sure if they are a right choice for you, read this article. Here, we'll go over everything you need to know about them.
What rooms are floor standing air conditioners suitable for?
Floor standing air conditioners are a preferred and convenient option for air conditioning of commercial facilities, gyms, restaurants and offices. Such a system is recommended for home air conditioning only in large rooms. Such rooms are, for example, open-plan living-room type rooms with a kitchen in one, for example.
Due to their high output, these air-conditioning systems are suitable for large rooms over 30 square metres. Therefore, there is no point in considering the specifics of these air conditioners if you need air conditioning for a small apartment.
Floor standing air conditioner - what is it?
This inverter air conditioner has good energy efficiency in both heating and cooling modes. It has two units - indoor and outdoor, with the indoor unit being very removable. It can be placed in any part of the room as long as there is enough space for it. Characteristic of the indoor unit is its elongated shape and its ability to distribute airflow well in large rooms. The outdoor unit is very similar to other split systems.
Another characteristic of this air conditioner is the fast reaching of the set temperature. Therefore, it is also very suitable for air conditioning in restaurants and commercial establishments.
How does the floor standing air conditioner work?
As mentioned, this air conditioner is distinguished by its tall and long indoor unit. Unlike wall-mounted air conditioners, column air conditioners are placed on the ground. This way, they don't take up space from your wall. However, it is good to be aware that column air conditioners also take up space in height. Therefore, it's a good idea to consider where you're going to place them.
They also operate with a powerful air jet that cools or heats according to your requirements. When picking a place for the air conditioner, keep in mind that the air jet should not be pointed directly at people or electrical appliances. This is especially true in restaurants or offices where people are static for long periods of time. New models of column air conditioners have settings to redirect the air stream, which is very convenient for users.
The floor standing air conditioner pulls air from the room and cools or warms it, then blows it back out. Passing through the air conditioner, the air is purified of dust and other impurities. The occupants can thus enjoy clean and fresh air.
