My Experience With Portable Air Conditioners


I love traveling and sometime the weather is not very suitable. This made me quite uncomfortable especially when I was in new places. Most upcountry hotel rooms don’t have good thermostats. This has been my real challenge for my traveling until last year when a friend mentioned of existence of some best portable air conditioners for small rooms. I thought it was a joke. I did not believe him.

A portable air conditioner? How does it look? How does it Work? Anyway I decided to go out and explore on their features and performance. Here is my experience with the portable air conditioners I have used so far.

portable air conditioner

EdgeStar 8,000 BTU

I liked this model due to its small size. It is a high performer integrated with some smart features. It has an automatic thermostat and timer. Besides cooling you room this machine play as a dehumidifier when it’s cool outside. I learned its Eco-friendly, it’s said it doesn’t have toxic emissions. It comes with a 3 year warranty. I like the features of this machine.

Global Air – NPA1 8,000 BTU

This is a nice portable air conditioner with 4 way air direction. It is supplemented with a window installation kit that is flexible and easy to attach. Besides serving as a dehumidifier at sleep mode it will still regulate air circulation. It is easy to carry round and can be mounted on a small space. With its efficient timer, you can schedule it on a 24 hour cycle.

Whynter- Eco-friendly 8000 BTU 

I would say this is a top of class machine. It is quite advanced and a bit costly. But I recommend because it is much sleek and weighs only 47.50 lb. Its filters are washable and you don’t have to worry of leaking when using it. Its programming is very friendly and its thermostat is very efficient. It is automated and will detect any leaks and give warnings. It’s super silent and will serve a room of up to 300 square feet.

These are some of the best portable air conditioners for small rooms I managed to try. I liked them and would recommend them to you. They will give you room the best air regulation you have been longing for. Most of them are multi-functional to act as a dehumidifier and are self-evaporative. They will give you good result at very little cost. You will surely like them.
