LOUISVILLE, Ky.

Most people don’t leave their window air conditioners turned on during the day in order to cut utility costs, resulting in sauna-like heat after a long day at the office. GE Appliances’ new connected window air conditioners beat the heat with the ability to control the unit from virtually anywhere with the touch of a smartphone screen. Simply turn the unit on from your phone on the way home to cool the space– decreasing the waste of cooling an empty room and increasing comfort when you arrive.

“Connectivity is on the minds of many consumers, and we saw a need to offer this in our window air conditioners,” said Mark Evans, product manager, room air products. “Our new 115-Volt window air conditioners are the largest connected residential units on the market that offer free app connectivity, making it easy to control the temperature of a room from anywhere.”

The new AEC12AV 12,050 Btu and AED10AV 10,000 Btu units are controlled by GE Appliances’ new Comfort app, allowing consumers to easily:

  • Create their own cooling schedule
  • Monitor and control their air conditioner from anywhere
  • Choose from available cooling modes
  • Control multiple units from one app
  • Get reminders to clean or change the air conditioner’s filter

In addition to the Wi-Fi® capabilities, both connected air conditioners are ENERGY STAR® compliant and come with a remote control. All of these options help turn a sticky, hot home into a cool and comfortable escape from the outdoor elements.

GE Appliances’ connected window air conditioners are available now and range from $350 to $440.
