Portable Air Conditioners
Requirements vary based on the model, but set up is typically quick and painless. Since all portable ACs remove warm air and moisture as they cool, the air has to be exhausted to another location–generally outside through an included window kit. Window kits have a window slider and exhaust hose(s), which can easily be set up to exhaust warm air outside. Select models can also be vented into a drop ceiling or through a wall. Once you set up the exhaust hose and window kit, you can simply plug in your AC and start cooling!
A portable air conditioner (PAC) is a self-contained portable system ideal for cooling single rooms. They typically sit on the floor and come with an installation kit for quick set up. Most models also have wheels so you can move them to different rooms, making them a nice alternative to window units.
They are most suitable for:
- Small Rooms: Portable ACs with between 7,000 BTUs and 10,000 BTUs are ideal for small bedrooms, offices, or nurseries up to 300 square feet. View our portable ACs for small rooms.
- Medium-Sized Spaces: Portable air conditioners in this category are best suited for cooling medium to large areas such as living rooms, sun rooms, or larger bedrooms. If your room is between 350 and 700 square feet, view our available models with 11,000 to 14,000 BTUs of cooling power.
- Large/Commercial Applications: These portable air conditioners work well in commercial and industrial applications, including large computer server rooms, manufacturing facilities, and special event spaces. Check out our available models for commercial applications.
