Portable air conditioners are extremely versatile units. Consumers choose portable Air Conditioners because they are easy to be installed.
After locating the AC in your selected room, installation takes minutes.
Another benefit is portability, and a favorite feature is that the view and use of the window are not lost.
However, the unit needs to be near a window or French door so its exhaust hose can discharge hot and humid air outside. Best with double hung windows and sliders, the installation can be more challenging with casement windows.
Portable air conditioners are a great solution when you are on one floor and can easily move your AC from room to room but do require a nearby window to vent exhaust air.
