Update: The Quirky Aros smart window air conditioner has jumped to $279

Amazon offers the recently released Quirky Aros smart window air conditioner for $249 with free shipping, which is $51 below list, $30 better than its average selling price, and the best deal we have ever seen.

This GE-backed Quirky creation is a fresh take on one of the most unexciting appliances in your home:

Dumb window A/C units only give you two options: Leave the air on all day — while burning expensive electricity — or come home to nasty, stuffy summer heat. But not Aros; because Aros is smart.

Similar to the Nest Thermostat (on sale for $229), the Aros learns from your patterns (schedule, weather, budget) so it can be as efficient as possible. It can cool medium-sized rooms up to 350 square feet and fit windows from 24.5 to 40.5-inches.
