Guide to the Best Home Air Conditioners


The sweltering heat of the summer months is a good reminder of the value of an air conditioning unit. In parts of the country such as Las Vegas, Phoenix and Arizona, summer highs can reach over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. On the other side, parts of the North-East and the Midwest experience biting cold in the winter. This makes it necessary to install a robust air conditioner unit to balance out the extremes.

Air conditioner units come in portable as well as fixed versions. A portable air conditioner can stand in a small space inside the house and typically runs on electricity. Fixed style air conditioners are larger and will cost more.

You can get air conditioner units for the home starting from around $250 for portable units, and $500-$5000 for wall mounted air conditioners.
