Awning Windows / August 6, 2018 / Guillaume Roussel
The sliding window air conditioners are mainly used in the small apartments. These consume much less electricity as compared to the other units. These are the best options for achieving cooling in a small area having one or two rooms. You have a freedom on installing individual units in each rooms thus providing opportunity to individuals occupying that room to adjust temperature as per their preferences.
Sliding window locks are often called vent locks as they allow the window to be locked slightly open for ventilation. The recommended gap is 100mm but never have more than 150mm. The theory is that if a head can get through a window a person can squeeze through. The venting position is not as secure as when the window is shut and locked. Therefore you should only leave your windows locked open you are at home.
