Air Condtitioner Reviews

Information on Air Conditioner Reviews

Central Air Conditioners are difficult for consumer groups and appliance reviewers to objectively test. There are a number of reasons for this including the expense of installing and testing separate systems in a single test environment. Consider taking a look at sites like Epinions for consumer reviews of central air conditioners. While Epinions is more anecdotal you certainly want to have as much information as you can get before making a large purchase like this.

Portable Air Conditioners can be reviewed and tested much more objectively. There are a number of groups that test window/portable air conditioners. Consumer Reports one of the most well known and respected appliance reviewers favored the following ac units with the distinction of "Best Buy" in it's 2005 report. (reported by Fox Chicago)
