By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The hot items in some hardware stores over the weekend were the ones to keep you cool.
The Home Depot had all their fans, wall and window air conditioning units on the sales floor.
They have seen sales on the items climb with the temperatures over the past two weeks.
We caught up with Bryan Wingate who was helping a friend install a new AC unit.
"The unit went out last night and it's getting hotter and we're going to try to help them out,"said Bryan Wingate.
If you buy a wall or window AC unit managers say use it for the specific space it's designed for, so you get maximum efficiency.
