It’s a hot and sticky summer. There’s no breeze in the air, and you feel like you’re melting. Don’t let the heat get you down. Shop air conditioners at JCPenney. We carry a variety of air conditioning units, including wall, portable and window air conditioners.
The most important part of pick out a new unit is the size. If you get an undersized unit it won’t properly cool your home. Find the square footage of the room where you want to use the air conditioner. Next you want to compare the square footage of the room to the unit's British Thermal Unit (BTU) rating. You also want to take other issues that may affect the cooling needs of the room into consideration. If the room is located on a shadier part of the house, you’ll need a unit with a little less power. A room that gets a lot of direct sunlight will need a more powerful unit.
Easily operate your new air conditioner from anywhere in the room with a remote control. Some models even come with a power interruption restart. The unit will automatically restart at the previous temperature setting. You'll find units that feature heating as well. Save yourself some money by getting an Energy Star Certified air conditioning unit. These units will use the least amount of energy needed to cool off your rooms efficiently.
Window air conditioners and wall air conditioners are very similar in capacity, size and cooling capabilities. The biggest differences between these two are the installation and ventilation processes. Wall air conditioners are built into the walls and are permanent, whereas window air conditioners are removable. Looking for something a little less permanent? Pick up a portable air conditioner. They are compact and can go with you anywhere.
