Sliding Window / July 14, 2018 / Tearlach DuLin
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.
Always be sure to avoid abrasive cleaners such as cleansers and products containing bleach as they can affect the vinyl surface or the caulking around the window. Also avoid using a power washer or hard spraying hose as this too can damage the caulk. Besides occasional exterior cleaning the tracks and runners on your vinyl sliders should be checked every few weeks to make sure they are clear of debris. Vinyl sliding windows glide horizontally and open the full length of the window.
Window grills vary greatly in price depending on the size of the window and the style of the grill but probably the average is $150$200 per window. Most insurance policies require either a keylocking window lock or security grill. This is sometimes in the fine print. If you dont have one of these forms of security you may be giving your insurance company an easy way to deny your claim and you will be wasting the money you pay on your insurance premium.
