Finding an RV air conditioner for sale is not hard. But before you plunk down that credit card, you should do a little prior research. Here are 5 tips to consider when purchasing an RV air conditioner.

Tip 1: Look Online:

A simple Google search for RV air conditioners will yield hundreds of results. Online shopping can save money, time, & the hassle of driving from store to store. The other advantage to finding a RV air conditioner for sale online is that you can read reviews from other shoppers. Online reviews often add valuable information that you might not discover in a store.



Tip 2: Save Money With a Low-Profile AC Unit

Are you looking to conserve energy and spend less on power? Then go for a low a Low-Profile AC unit. Not only are low-profile air conditioners more energy efficient, but they increase the gas milage of your RV by creating less drag as you drive down the road.

Tip 3: Buy Used

If you are squeezing the budget to go the extra mile, look for a used RV air conditioner. You may be wary, but there are many used air conditioners for sale that are in great shape. Try searching places such as ebay or online RV forums.

Tip 4: Ducted or Not Ducted?

It’s important to know if you are looking for a ducted or non-ducted RV air conditioner. A ducted unit integrates with your air flow system and pipes air through vents around the RV. It is generally the quieter, more expensive option. A non-ducted air conditioner is often found in smaller RVs. It does not hook into the ducting system of the RV, and the cold air is expelled directly from the vents in the AC unit. It is possible to switch from a non-ducted to a ducted AC set up, but the change can be costly.

Tip 5: Always Go For Quality

There are times when RV repair can be more costly then the price of a new unit. For this reason, it’s important to ensure you are buying a quality product.
