Keep cool this summer
Window air conditioners are a great way to keep cool, especially for homes without existing ductwork. But there's more to buying a new window AC than just picking the cheapest one. Factors like size, efficiency, features and noise level must also be considered.
Getting the right sized air conditioner for the space can make all the difference. An air conditioner that's undersized will result in the unit running constantly, without cooling or drying the air sufficiently. An air conditioner that's too big can make the air feel clammy and damp, because it will not run long enough to remove the moisture from the air.
Higher efficiency window air conditioners, along with features like programmable thermostats, can save significantly on utility bills. Many window units include the government's ENERGY STAR® seal; ENERGY STAR® equipment generally uses 20% - 30% less energy than required for federal standards.
There are many great brands and models of small window air conditioners on the market. Some of the brands that we trust and highly recommend are Amana, Carrier, Frigidaire, LG, GE, Freidrich and many others. Window air conditioners are available in a range of cooling capacities, usually between 5,200BTU and 18,000BTU.
