This genius U-shaped Midea A/C is for sale at Amazon

It’s an extremely irritating summer irony: As soon as it becomes a joy to look out the window at nature’s green, blooming abundance, we have to shut that window down to install an air conditioner because… it’s summer. Dang-blast it: Why can’t we have cool, dry, heavenly air conditioning? and the ability to bask in a sweet scent after a thunderstorm or evening breeze?

Well, now you can, thanks to Midea’s U-shaped Inverter Window air conditioner. Another best-of-both-worlds fact? This revolutionary machine is on sale for $40 off, just in time for the dog days.

It’s really ingenious: the people of Midea (pronounced my-dee – rhymes with idea…presumably because this is such a groundbreaking concept) made a window unit that is secured (in a lickety-split setup) with a bracket that attaches to the base of your frame and is supported by a triangular outer bracket rather than just lean against the lower sash of your window. It’s a safer, more sensible way to go and one that allows you to open your window whenever you want. (Oh, and in case you’re wondering, yes, it comes with an anti-theft mechanism for when the window is closed.)

The other advantage of the U shape? It lets the window act as an auditory shield between you and most air conditioning machines. The result? The U-Smart is nine times quieter than conventionally designed air conditioners. (Another irony in the summer: in theory an air conditioner will help you sleep through the night…except the roar of the engine will keep you awake.) Along with that quietness, that’s 35% more energy savings than comparable window units. Already impressed? And the 8,000 BTUs can cool 350 square feet – enough for the largest living room, even a large studio!

Of course it comes with a remote, but if you want to go ‘smart’ it can also be controlled via the app and Alexa and Google Assistant.

If somehow you’re still not convinced, check out the more than 8,400 five-star reviews it’s garnered at Amazon.

This mom is chill in more ways than one now: “First of all, I know everyone wants to know if it’s quiet. I have it in my bedroom and I have a child with a sensory sensitivity to sound, so a compressor that goes off every now and then. is very disturbing all night long. This is whisper quiet – you never hear the compressor on or off.”

“This new Midea window air conditioner is now making ALL other window units OUTDATED!” said one enthusiastic customer. “Why would anyone spend what this device costs, probably more, on 1960s technology?” Yes what said: Why?

This home worker was also impressed: “Since I had to work from home during the ‘plague’, my home office has also become unbearably hot with all the computers and monitors I have. I am so impressed with the Midea-U that I just placed an order for a new one for the office.”
