Improve Your Air Conditioning and Heating System
Installing a Window Air Conditioner Unit
- The installation of a window air conditioner unit in a room will definitely help out if the central air conditioner system is not providing the level of cooling that you desire.
- The size of the window air conditioner unit that you purchase may require the installation of a dedicated circuit depending on the amperage of the receptacle circuit that is in the bedroom.
- It should be noted that the main home air conditioner system thermostat may not be located where it will be affected by the performance of the window air conditioner unit.
The Importance of Air Conditioning System Air Balancing
- It may be wise to check the main home ventilation system vents and registers to make sure that they are open and that the system has been air-balanced to allow for optimal cooling.
- Central air conditioning system air flow balancing is a key component to the best performance of any heating or air conditioning system.
- Air balancing and flow testing may improve the system and identify any problem areas of the ventilation system that may exist.
Be Careful and Be Safe - Never Work on Energized Circuits!

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
