Vancouver Movers Offer Tips on Relocating a Portable AC Unit

Vancouver movers offers professional tips on how to safely move a portable AC unit

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - December 20, 2017) - As a team of Vancouver movers, the professionals at Ferguson Moving & Storage know that moving an air conditioner requires time and practice. For anyone with a portable AC unit, it's important to understand that "portable" doesn't mean easy to move. It just means the unit isn't a part of a centralized system. Nevertheless, moving a portable AC is possible, and a new blog on the company website explains how in five easy steps. For more, go to:

The first step, according to the blog, is to unplug and drain the system. "Not all portable AC units will collect water in the same way. Some might dispose-as-they-go. And others may have a dish to collect it. Somewhere though, condensation is likely collecting. And you'll need to know where that is so you don't make a mess."

Other steps explored in detail include detaching the unit, sealing the window, and packing the unit for transportation.

The blog even lists what to consider when getting the unit working again in your new location. For example, the big considerations will include:

• Which window to sacrifice to get the appliance functional

• How to keep the window open and seal it properly

• Whether the tube needs to be installed through a ceiling, attic, wall, air vent or something else

• Will professional support be necessary
