10,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner - 4 Top Models

Posted by Jeff Allaire on May 7, 2021 8:00 AM 

 

It's a relief to exchange snow tires for regular tires, boots for sandals, and sweaters for short sleeves, isn't it? And yet... sometimes, no matter how much we appreciate summer, there are a few downsides. If you have a large space to cool down, a 10,000 BTU window air conditioner is a great way to do it. These powerful ACs can handle 350-450 square feet, and many options are still 115/120 volt rather than requiring a 220-volt setup.

We've chosen four popular models from great brands to help you decide. Choosing an air conditioner from an established brand helps ensure that you get a solid warranty and that the unit gives you many seasons of performance.

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Apr 21, 2021 10:00 AM 

 

The side by side refrigerator is a popular choice for large families and households with a lot of mouths to feed! Unlike traditional top freezer refrigerators or bottom freezer refrigerators, the side by side is split vertically between the freezer and refrigerator sections. These refrigerators tend to have a larger width but require less space to fully open the doors. The design allows you to keep the fresh and frozen items you access the most within easy reach without needing to bend over. (For more info on choosing a new refrigerator, check out our refrigerator buying guide!)
