While portable air conditioners are a great way to cool areas of your home without the need for expensive installation jobs, let’s face it, many of them are clunky and difficult to place discreetly in your home. However, the unique design of the Whynter Sno 13,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner will change your perception of portable ACs.
Standing barely over a foot tall, the Whynter Sno features a sleek, modern design with rounded edges on the body. Available in two colors, the Whynter ARC-13S features a platinum finish and the Whynter ARC-13W is a versatile Frost White. The Sno’s diminutive height allows users to place the air conditioner in inconspicuous areas, such as a corner or behind a sofa. Of course, the chic design of this Whynter portable air conditioner lends itself to even the most modern, minimalist decor—with no need to hide it. If you need a blast of cool air in a different area, built-in front casters, two large back wheels, a retractable pull cord, and a convenient handle make moves a breeze.

As temperatures across the U.S. continue to skyrocket, staying cool seems to be at the top of everyone’s priority list. If your existing HVAC system needs a little help or if you just need to cool a single room, consider adding a portable air conditioner to your home. These freestanding devices are great choices for anyone living in an apartment or condo with restrictions regarding the installation of window air conditioners, for IT professionals who need to keep a server room cool, or even for those working in warehouses or garages. With the help of a portable AC, you can stay cool and comfortable throughout the blazing hot summer months.

Electronics-giant Sharp has introduced 2 super-quiet yet very powerful models into its series of sleek and attractive portable air conditioners. The new units – the Sharp CV-P12PX and the Sharp CV-P13PX – have loads of impressive features. They are equipped with four operating modes, three fan speeds, automatic draining technology, and advanced airflow louvers, to name a few. However, one quality that makes them stand out from the rest – and not to mention from similar models in their class – is that they are incredibly quiet. We’re talking “library quiet.”
When running on their lowest fan speeds, these units emit sounds that are only slightly louder than a whisper. At 41 decibels and 43 decibels respectively, the CV-P12PX and CV-P13PX can be operated in your bedroom, office, or living room with virtually zero disruption. That’s a long way from many first-generation portable AC models that, when operating, you swear sound like a plane shooting down a runway.
