You may not normally want your household appliances to anticipate your every move and desire, but in the case of something as expensive as an A/C unit, a little bit of intelligence goes a long way. The Aros Smart Window Air Conditioner ($300) learns your behaviors and preferences to automatically turn itself on and off as necessary. You can even leave off your A/C while you're at work, but have it turn on automatically fifteen minutes before you return. Budget-conscious owners can change the settings to ensure that energy is being conserved over the course of a month.
