Three Steps to Buying the Right Air Conditioner

July 11, 2017

In ancient times, the Greeks and Romans called the four or so weeks at the peak of summer the “dog days” – the time when Sirius, the dog star, rises just before the sun. In those days, hot, sluggish, steamy weather often led to sickness, famine, or other catastrophes.

Luckily, 3,000 years later, we have ENERGY STAR® certified room air conditioners to help us stay cool indoors, ward off the heat and humidity, and save money. In these warm temperatures, it’s tempting to buy the biggest air conditioner, but that’s not the most effective way to cool a room. We’ve put together this guide to help you choose the best room air conditioner for your home.

Once you know what to get for your space and are ready to buy a new room air conditioner, remember that the sponsors of Mass Save® offer a $40 rebate on ENERGY STAR certified room air conditioners to help you save a little more. For more details, visit MassSave.com/RoomAC.
