Window Of Opportunity: How To Make Sure Your Small Window Unit Cools Your Studio Apartment

by Amy Henry

A studio apartment may be the perfect place to start out in. Although studio apartments are typically one large room aside from the kitchen and bathroom, studio apartments are perfect for many people. If you spend a lot of time away from home, if it is just you and your dog, or if you prefer a place that is lower in cost but in a certain type of community, a studio apartment is perfect for you. Controlling the temperature of a studio apartment is also easier, even when you have a window air conditioner. Here are a few ways to make sure that your window AC is able to properly cool down your studio apartment. 

Keep furniture on its direct path

The first thing that you want to do when moving into a studio apartment with a window air conditioning unit is to make sure that all furniture is stationed away from the air conditioner. Nothing should be placed in front of the air conditioner unless it sits lower than its place in the window. No furniture should be placed in front of the air conditioners path as this will require air to work harder to circulate the room. Be sure to keep anything from directly in front of or directly in the path of the air that is flowing through the system. 

Station electronics away from the air conditioner

Electronics emit heat, especially when they run. If you have electronics such as televisions, stereo sets, or computers, that tend to run hot when they are on, you should move these out of the way of the air conditioner. The best places for your larger electronics, especially the larger items, is to keep them on the perimeter of the room. This will all the air conditioner to blow cold air that is not infringed by the heat emitting from electronics. 

Put a pretty shade over the window

If you have a window unit air conditioner, it will likely take only half of the window. The top of the window will be visible and the sun beaming through it can heat up the apartment. This will cause the air conditioner to work harder, which can raise the utilities of your studio apartment. To make sure that your tiny cooling system is effective, place a shade over the window to block some of the sun's rays. The shade will not stop light but will stop the additional heat, which will permit your apartment to be cool all summer long.
