The listing for each room air conditioner includes the following:

  • brand name;
  • model number;
  • amperage (you may need to consult an electrician or a heating, ventilating and air-conditioning specialist to ensure proper wiring and avoid overloading a circuit);
  • cooling capacity;
  • energy efficiency ratio (EER); and
  • ENERGY STAR® status.
