Window Air Conditioners
Stay Cool And Save Money
By Linda Polansky
Are you tired of sweating all summer long because you do not want to shell out the cash for a central air conditioner? Have you given into the fact that there is no way to stay cool without breaking the bank? If this sounds like you, you are in luck. There is something that you can do this summer to stay cool, without having to spend hundreds of dollars.
By purchasing a window air conditioner, you will be able to keep yourself cool the entire summer. Even though you will only be able to have the unit in one window, if you properly place it there is no reason that you should not be able to cool down your entire home. Instead of placing your air conditioner in your bedroom window you may want to think about putting it in a more centralized location. This will help to spread the air out over your entire home, instead of keeping it in one room.
A window air conditioner will save you money in a couple of different ways. First off, a window air conditioner can be purchased for as little as $150. This offers huge savings compared to central air. At the same time, you will also save yourself money on the electric bill. Using a central air unit during the entire summer can make your electric bills sky rocket. But by using a window unit sparingly, you will be able to stay cool while also keeping your electric bill under control. A lot of people only use their window unit when it is absolutely necessary. This way you can control the approximate amount of money that you spend per month.
One of the least expensive, but most efficient window units that you can buy is the Kenmore 75051. This model will cost you approximately $150, but for that price you get a lot features. Features include a four way air deflection, a timer, two different fan speeds, and a remote control for easy use.
If you are looking for more power, you will want to step up to the GE AGM12. Even though you will have to spend about $400, you will be able to more quickly cool your house. This model offers 12,000 Btu’s which are controlled by three cooling speeds.
Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to stay cool this summer without spending thousands of dollars. A window air conditioner offers the features you need to stay cool, and also keep some money in your pocket.
