Despite rising electricity costs and a weakening economy, there's expected to be strong demand in Korea this summer for air conditioners.
This year's heatwaves started early this year, in April, and this month has set some new records.
So industry analysts now expect air conditioner sales this year to reach 2 millioin.
Manufacturers are trying to get in on the action with new premium lineups, and newer self-contained models that ventilate through the window.
