The Smartest A/C Ever Will Save You Money

Summer is just around the corner, which means you are about to spend roughly eight bajillion dollars on air conditioning (estimate). Luckily, GE and Quirky have teamed up to give you the Aros, the smart air conditioner. The device has a super advanced cooling system that uses less energy to keep you nice and chilly, despite the volcanic temperatures outside.

The Aros pairs up with the Wink app and gives you full control over your A/C functions. Set timers and turn your A/C off or on remotely, and get a personalized energy report that can help you beat your evil electric company at it's own game. At $300, the Aros will pay for itself in money you save on your bills. Now you can actually afford to run your air conditioner AND buy lemonade from the stand outside your house. 

With a sexy, minimalist design, the Aros will look good in your window and function better than your rickety old money pit of an A/C. It's available starting next month, so you can get it installed before global warming sets your town on fire.
