The seven core categories increased 6.0 percent, but room air-shot up 59.0 percent to 1,598,900 units. For the year to date, the category increased 46.0 percent to 7,515,900; the record is 6,496,400 in 2000.

Total shipments in the 5 weeks ending June 28 were 8,366,300, second only to the 8,718,000 units that moved this March. The previous June standard was 7,311,800 in 2000; last year was 7,216,100.
