If you live on the East coast like I do, you’re definitely wondering what the heck just happened to the weather. One day it was in the 20s and frigid, and then next it was in the high 80s with 90% humidity. You can complain all you want about the fact that we only have two seasons these days, but the bottom line is that many of us were caught off-guard by the sudden shift from winter weather to summer weather. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. In this post, you’ll find five things you definitely need now that summer weather is upon us, and we’ve included two great options for each category.

Note that our top pick in the Window AC category has mechanical controls, which means you can connect it through a smart plug like this one to control your air conditioning with Alexa!
