One of the things you will need to know about this device is its EER,

The higher the EER, the more efficient the system is. You will also need to establish whether the products that you are buying is a single hose or double hose model. They usually require at least one hose to allow them to exhaust the hot air that is usually generated by the compressor.

Single hose models usually take the air from a room and circulate just like a window air conditioning system does.

By doing that, you will be preventing waste of energy and as a result your electricity bill will not be so high.
  • 7. Facts About Portable Air ConditionersFacts About Portable Air Conditioners Go for portable air conditioners that have few BTUs as possible if you do not want to pay for cooling that you do not need. BTU, or British Thermal Unit, refers the capacity rating of the air conditioner. The portable air conditioners usually come in different sizes to correspond with their intended use, for instance home use or office use. So you will need to choose one that is going to serve you efficiently.
  • 8. Facts About Portable Air ConditionersFacts About Portable Air Conditioners Speaking of efficiency, it is important to know that moisture affects the operation of the portable air conditioners. Moisture is usually accumulated into water and taken directly into the drain tank. The water is then used for cooling the condenser coils as it evaporates. But there are some Air Conditioners that have not been designed to use moisture, so you would be required to empty the tank while using it.
