  • The Friedrich P09B is the best portable air conditioner at removing excess moisture from a room, as it can pull up to 5 pints of water every hour. The air conditioner produces 9,300 Btu, so it works best in rooms no larger than 400 square feet. Although it isn't as energy-efficient as some of the other models we reviewed, it comes with all the convenient features we look for, including a remote control with an LCD screen. This air conditioner is best for those who live in humid environments, as it can save you the cost of a dedicated dehumidifier to make your home comfortable.

    The Whynter ARC-12S is the most energy-efficient portable air conditioner we reviewed, which means you don't have to worry about breaking your energy bill every month you use it. This machine is also designed for rooms of up to 550 square feet because it is capable of producing 12,000 Btu. Although it lacks some of the design elements we look for, such as a self-evaporating system and sleep mode, this is one of the best portable air conditioners you can find.

  • The Haier HPN12XCM is designed to work in rooms of up to 550 square feet, as it produces 12,000 Btu. Because it is capable of removing 4.2 pints of water from your air a day, this portable air conditioner is excellent for humid environments. Additionally, this is one of the quietest machines we found, meaning it shouldn't disturb you too much while you watch TV, listen to music or try to sleep. It comes with every convenient feature we look for in a portable air conditioner, including a self-evaporating system to add the water it produces back into the air. The machine also has a five-year warranty, which is among the longest we found. Overall, the Haier HPN12XCM is the best portable air conditioner because of its cooling abilities, design elements and convenient features.

    Central air conditioners are great for cooling large homes and expansive spaces during those warm summer days. But, what about the times when you only need to cool one room? This is where a portable air conditioner can help you.

Portable Air Conditioner Reviews - Consumer Reports News

Portable air conditioners are excellent for apartments or small houses in which other air conditioning units, like window air conditioners, might be prohibited by landlords or private housing rules. These units are also highly maneuverable compared to other air conditioners, so you can move them from one room to another, such as from the living room in the afternoon to a bedroom in the evening. Because they are designed to move somewhat frequently, all portable air conditioners have casters, or wheels, to help you move them where they are needed.
