CORNING, N.Y. (WETM) As the heat continues, some may be running their air conditioners, but for those who do not have one, some stores said they are running out.

“Some of the bigger window AC’s right now I’m getting low on supply because of the demand,” Luke Petrinec, the specialty sales manager at the Corning Home Depot, said. “We’ve got trucks rallying and trying to get those in. Portable AC’s, we have a ton of those.”

Petrinec said the basic window-air conditioners start at just $139 at his store.

He said his store still has a number of portable air conditioners remaining. Those tend to be higher priced.

If you have difficulty in trying to afford an air conditioner, you may qualify for state cooling assistance in New York.
