Wanting to save a little bit of cash on that new air conditioner you’ve been eyeing? Check out some of the coolest (pun intended) AC sales happening this month!
The summertime temperatures are here and, well, we’ve been sweating in our sleep so that could only mean two things. (1) It’s time to buck up and buy our very first air conditioner or (2) it’s time to upgrade our old unit that’s basically been coughing out warm air. The good news is that some of the major retailers are having great sales on a variety of air conditioners, from window units, to easy-to-move portable units, and even a large variety of through-the-wall air conditioners that may cost a bit more but are mighty powerful and, well, permanent.
– Best Selling Air Conditioner of 2019 –
– The LG LW8016ER Window Mounted AC –
While our friends over at ConsumerReports suggest through their research that August is the best time to buy an air conditioner, we feel like any time you can find a sale is the ‘best’ time. Sure the end of the typical summer season means that retailers are slashing prices since they know their sales will be declining, but what if you want one right now? Who’s waiting all summer to sweat through this next heatwave?! We’ve researched for, literally, hours-into-days to find some of the best prices on a variety of ACs from the brands we love and trust the most like LG, GE, Whirlpool, Frigidaire and more. And we found some pretty cool deals. Check out our picks for some of the best air conditioners on sale (so far) in April 2019.
