Warm weather and sizzling summer sun often mean searching for ways to cool down in a hurry. Spaces without air conditioning though can leave you frying in front of the fan with little relief.
Portable air conditioners can help you stay cool even if you don’t have central air conditioning in your home. With a variety of styles available online and in-store, we can help you find the right portable AC for your home today.
Creating a cool, comfortable home starts with getting the right portable AC model for your space. To do that, you’ll need to decide what BTU rating is ideal for the size of your room.
In general, small portable air conditioner models with 8,000 to 10,000 BTU ratings work well for bedrooms and home offices with standard eight-foot ceilings. Bigger spaces like large bedrooms may require 10,000 or 12,000 BTU models to properly cool your space, particularly during the day when it’s very hot outside. Larger spaces like your living room may require a 12,000 to 14,000 or higher BTU-rated AC unit to provide the cooling power you desire.
Note that poorly-insulated spaces or rooms where you get a lot of sun may require additional cooling power.
When choosing an AC unit you generally have a few different options available to you. Window units that mount inside a window are common, but they can’t be moved easily. They also require certain types of windows to function properly. That’s why many people prefer a stand up air conditioner that doesn’t go in the window at all.
Sometimes referred to as a floor air conditioner or standing air conditioner, these models can be moved from room to room or left in one space on a more permanent basis. Most people who use this type of portable AC unit still choose to place them near windows so exhaust hoses can blow warm air outside.
With a range of styles available, it’s easy to find the right portable AC to match your décor too. Black, white and even gray styles that mimic the look of stainless steel can blend into traditional, transitional and modern homes with ease.
Like most appliances and even central cooling and heating systems, portable air conditioners do make some noise when they’re running. Depending on the space you’re using your AC unit in, this noise may or may not bother.
In general, more powerful units that can cool a larger space will make slightly more noise. However, because your room is bigger, proper positioning can make this noise very minimal and much less intrusive.
In spaces like home offices or bedrooms, choosing a particularly quiet portable air conditioner that still provides proper cooling power is recommended. These spaces can usually be cooled with a small portable AC that’s not much louder than a typical fan.
