Portable Air Conditioning Units

The world’s climate is rapidly changing, and most people need to buy an air conditioner to cool down their homes and offices in the summer. Fortunately, there are many portable air conditioners that can be taken out of storage in the spring, and then put away prior to winter. These units are just as effective as built-ins, and are attractively designed to fit innocuously into any room.

Here is a comparison of two of the best air conditioners, perfect for every room in office or home.

LG Electronics LP0814WNR 115-volt Portable Air Conditioner with Remote Control, 8000 BTU

The LG Electronics portable air conditioner comes with a handy remote control, so that you don’t need to get up to change the controls. It comes in an attractive white finish, so it can discreetly sit against the wall, without being too noticeable.

It has 8,000 BTU, and plugs into any standard outlet. One a/c will cool a room up to 200 square feet. It provides dehumidification of up to 2 pints per hour.

To operate the unit, there is a handy LED display panel. There are two fan speeds and two cooling speeds to choose from. You can pre-save your settings for when you return home. The timer is programmable for 24 hours, so you can get your home ready and cooled down for you by the end of the working day.

The LG air conditioning unit has easy roll caster wheels, so your air conditioning can follow you around the home. You’ll find that this a/c unit produces a steady stream of cooling air, even on the lower setting.

The LG is priced at around $500, and is backed up by a one year warranty.

Honeywell MN12CES 12,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner with Remote Control - Black/Silver

The Honeywell MN12CES air conditioner is available in attractive black and silver finish, and comes with a remote control, to enable quick adjustment of settings from across the room. It’s a 12,000 BTU portable air conditioner. It can cool rooms of up to 450 square feet. It will dehumidify the air up to 79.2 pints per day.

The Honeywell has an easy-to-use LED display and feather-touch controls. There are three cooling speeds to choose the level of coolness for your home. There is an on and off timer that will allow you to program it for the next 24 hours. You can set it to have your room cold and ready, by the time you return home.

If noise is a consideration, the Honeywell has a powerful air flow system, while being quiet to run. It has a 3M electrostatic filer, and is environmentally friendly to run. There is also a fan only function, to keep air circulating in your home, or office, but when it’s not hot enough to use the air conditioner function.

The Honeywell is priced at $700, and comes with a limited one year parts and labor warranty.
