I paid $350 for a 10,000 BTU unit back in 1975... Today I can
buy one for $200. That's in "current" dollars both then and
now. Adjusted for inflation, well...

(reasons for the lowerprices left as an exercise to the student)

I see a lot of older (before central A/C was common) that have 240V 20A
receptacles in bedrooms. A/C units must be a lot more efficient,
considering I've seen a room cooled adequately by a unit that used 120V
at less than 5A.
