It's hot! Consumer Reports tests window A/C units

Window air conditioners aren’t the most aesthetically pleasing appliances, but when the heat is on they’re often the only option if you want to keep cool. Consumer Reports just tested dozens of air conditioners. While not much has changed in how they’re installed, there’s a newer A/C with a U-shaped design that allows you to open and close your window without the heavy unit falling out. Installation is a little different from a traditional window A/C. "It still needs a special bracket to be installed first. Once you do that you can slide the A/C into place, and the window closes down into this U-shaped groove. Just note that you might not be able to fit some windows with the screen," said Chris Regan, Consumer Reports.
