Keep Your Cool All Summer Long
Air conditioners are a great way to beat the heat in your bedroom, living room, or kitchen. Most models feature a variety of automatic settings that make operating your unit a breeze – literally. Best Buy carries a great selection from great brands including Danby, Haier, and Royal Sovereign, so you’ll be able to find the right size air conditioner for all your needs.
Choosing the Right Size
Having the right size of AC is vital – too small and your unit will run non-stop, but too large and it won’t remove the humidity in the air. To determine the size you’ll need, check out our air conditioner buying guide where you’ll find a quick and easy way to figure out how many BTUs your unit should have. For example, a room that’s 100-150 square feet in size will require at least 5000 BTUs for proper cooling.
Window Air Conditioner
If you’re simply looking to bring some cool air to a single room, a window air conditioner might be your best bet. These handy units can cool a variety of room sizes, so you can move around the room and stay comfortable even when the temperature outside skyrockets.
Portable Air Conditioner A portable air conditioner is a better option if you’re looking to cool a larger-sized room or one that doesn’t have a window. Not only do these units come with many of the same great features of their window counterparts, but you can take it from room to room with smooth-moving wheels.
Other Great Features to Look For
Air conditioners are loaded with handy features such as digital controls, a timer, remote control, and adjustable fan speeds that will help make operation a cinch. You can also choose a model with a dehumidifier function to help reduce dampness in the summer air, as well as a humidifier function that allows you to keep moisture in the air in the winter.
