Samsung Electronics said Friday its sales of air conditioners have more than doubled so far this month, compared to a year ago, due to the sweltering heat.

From July 1 to 22, the company saw its sales of air conditioners spike more than twice from the same period in 2020, the company said.

Sales of Bespoke Wind-free Gallery, the company’s highest-end air conditioner, have jumped more than 95 percent in July compared to a year earlier.

To further drive sales, Samsung is offering up to 300,000 won ($260) in benefits to buyers of Bespoke air conditioner products until the end of July.
