In 1987 the price of a 5,000 BTU window was $239.00. It looked like the 1970s, with all manual controls made from cheap knobs. If this is a unit that you still run today, it would cost you less today to purchase a brand-new one from Feder’s Distributors than it is to run this older model during any hot Summer.
Today’s 5,000 BTU window air conditioner is an attractive white model, with digital displays and a remote. Since it even qualifies for an energy star rebate worth upwards of $50.00, the net cost to our customer is only $49.00!
Cost per year to run this new model is more than 80% better than running the air conditioner in the commercial that we sold for $239.00!
