The answer is easy, Window air conditioners have one blower motor. In some case, it depends on the model and also the brand. But what you really need to know is how many blower motors does your specific unit have. Here are 3 things that you should know about the number of blower motors in a window AC.
It is the number of blower motors that controls the speed of the fan. The higher the number of blower motors the more powerful the fan will be. However, if you have a high-efficiency AC then the number of blower motors will not affect its efficiency at all. In fact, it is only when you compare a low-efficiency AC with a high-efficiency one that you will find the number of blower motors as the deciding factor.
Most people don’t even bother to check the number of blower motors in their AC. They just want to make sure that it has a fan and they buy any air conditioner with a fan. But this is a big mistake because a poorly designed AC can actually cause health problems. If your air conditioner doesn’t have enough blower motors to provide a strong circulation then dust, dirt, and other particles will not get sucked out of the room and will remain there to cause health problems.
There is another important thing that you should know about the number of blower motors in an AC and that is the less the number of blower motors the higher the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) of the unit. The SEER rating of an AC is one of the most important ratings that you must know before you buy an air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating of an AC, the more energy efficient it will be and the longer it will last. But don’t worry, even if the model you are interested in has a low SEER rating it does not mean that it is inefficient. It just means that it is a “low-SEER” AC.
In conclusion, I want to say that the number of blower motors in your AC is one of the most important features to check before you buy an AC. But most people don’t even bother to check this feature and they end up buying any air conditioner with a fan. So, before you go out and buy an AC, make sure you check how many blower motors it has. Also, always remember that a poorly designed AC can actually cause health problems and a unit with a high SEER rating can still be efficient.
