Can't find cool air? Buy it!

August 8, 2007

Albany--  A lot of folks looking to beat the heat are turning to new air conditioners.

Sales of A/C units are up at Lowe's. Sales were already swift this summer but this week store workers say sales are already up about 10-percent. For small rooms, window units can be an energy-efficient and convenient way to stay a little cooler during the heat wave.

"We're selling about 30 to 40 air conditioners a day. That's pretty high for a store like us compared to our competitors. We can't keep them on the shelf," said Brian Payne.

Believe it or not, despite the high heat, store workers are already preparing to stock shelves with heaters.
