Temps are rising and if you’re getting ready for a big move, you’ll want to bring along those window air conditioning units to ensure your new home is cool and comfortable. To help, we’ve put together a simple guide outlining the steps you can take to get your unit ready and safely transported to your new spot.
Before wrapping and packing away, you should take a few spare moments to clean your unit. This little bit of extra housekeeping will help ensure that the unit works properly when installed. It will also prevent dirt and grime from spreading on your other items during the move.
Now that your air conditioner is clean and dry, it’s time to pack it up. The steps for packing are pretty simple. You’ll want to ensure that it’s removed from the power source and completely cooled and dry. Then you can remove it from the window. Next, you’ll want to tape the power cord to the side of the unit, not on the back near the coils. This step will help you avoid any damage to the cord. If you have the original box, you can pack it back inside. If not, use another large appliance box and pack it with newspaper. Finally, tape up your box and pack it into your vehicle. Then you’re all set!
