5 Air Conditioners That Are Not Ugly

Although we have hopes that the steamy weather is coming to an end soon, it really can't end soon enough since the air conditioner in our pre-war apartment has died. We have not shopped for an AC unit for quite some time, and being the design minded folks that we are, we are hoping to find a much more design forward option for a replacement.

No big surprise here, but many air conditioner units are rather ugly. After combing our archives and the Internet we have found 5 fairly nice looking air conditioner options.

5 air conditioners that are not eyesores:

1) Friedrich Kühl Air Conditioners: Handily the best looking window AC unit we've ever seen, the Kühl is available in 6 different colour options. This unit not only looks sleek, it also has high tech filtration and tech specs with programmability that rivals central AC systems.

2) Samsung AQV18NSAN: The slim profile of this wall unit is certainly attractive as is the fact that it pulls double duty as a heating system.

3) LG ARTCOOL: This series of wall air conditioners from LG all have a minimalist mirrored finish that would fit in well in many a modern home.

4) Toshiba Window Air Conditioners: Although not immediately sexy at first glace, we do like the clean block design of these window air conditioners and find it a nice departure from the typical beige vent filled window AC.

5) NewAir AC-14000E Air Conditioner : We have had this portable AC in our test lab and we have given it the "recommend" rating, its minimalist looks help it to be much less of an eyesore than other portable AC units on the market.
