What is the Best Location for a Bedroom Air Conditioner?

While many factors can affect how a small air conditioner in the bedroom performs based on its position, there are some basic rules to follow.

  • Install it over your bed to ensure you get a direct flow of cool or warm air when you need it.
  • Install it in a high spot. Cool air ultimately flows downwards, so installing it higher will help cool the room more evenly.

However, our rockstar installers will suggest the best location for an air conditioner in your bedroom.
