Looking for suggestions on quality room air conditioners. A friend of mine in Ft. Worth is in need of a new unit and I want to get something with an EER of 10 or better. About 10,000 BTU. I was shocked to find that Best Buy, Sears, Lowes and Home Depot think, "The season is over." That's how they explain their lack of stock. If it's 102 degrees in the shade, and I want a new AC unit, how can the season be over? I was told by an uncle that if I shopped Lowes online they would send my choice to the nearest store. That doesn't seem to be the case as Lowes site announced my choice of a particular Frigidaire was "not available" anywhere in Ft. Worth. Any ideas?
