When it comes to making it through summer (and late spring and early fall), a reliable air conditioner is a must. However, a lot of them are seriously ugly. Obviously, an air conditioner is more important than aesthetics, but it'd still be nice to have a cohesive look to your home, right? Luckily, there are a ton of actually cute air conditioners out there.
Honestly, air conditioners have gotten so much more advanced in recent years. There are even ones that feature smartphone apps and even ones with sleek modern paneling that can camouflage into any room
Scroll below to check out the best air conditioners you can buy, and stay the chillest of all the chill cucumbers all summer long.
The July Window Air Conditioner comes in two sizes and a variety of finishes and front panels to seamlessly blend into any room. It's super easy to install and features an app for your smartphone. The real star feature is the air-purifying filters that help remove fine particulates like pollen, pet dander, and dust mites from your home.
If you're looking for the perfect combo of quiet and energy-efficient, we highly recommend trying out this Midea model. The air conditioner features an inverter compressor, meaning it uses about half of the energy that units without one. It's also Energy Star certified and Wi-Fi enabled, too, with user-friendly smart-home integration
One of the best parts is that you can also actually use your window with the air conditioner. Thanks to the U-shaped design, you can continue to open and close your window depending on the temperature and your general mood.
While being Energy Star certified is something to look out for, this Frigidaire model is the winner of the Energy Star Most Efficient award. This air conditioner offers up to 46% annual energy savings over a standard air conditioner and reaches more angles of the room for optimum circulation and cooling with an auto swing louver and three different fan speeds for powerful, yet smooth air movement.
The sleek and modern design of the Windmill air conditioner is obviously the selling point. However, the actually easy installation, auto-dimming LED display and high-tech features — including connecting it to your smartphone, Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa — is the real reason this is the best air conditioner you can get for an apartment or small bedroom.
Although it's the splurgiest one on this list, this cute little HVAC unit combines four functions into one: Cooling, dehumidification, ventilation and sleep mode — as well as a swing feature to change window direction. The Ukoke Caravan works with Amazon Alexa and other voice control devices so it can be controlled via your smartphone or your voice.
Thanks to its pre-assembled design, Dreo air conditioning unit saves you 30-50% time on installation compared to traditional window units. All you have to do is slide it in and secure with screws, making it super easy to install. The Dreo air conditioner comes with a noise-canceling mechanism, which is kind of the best — and it's Energy Star certified.
