Why Buy A Portable Air Conditioner, Now?

Posted by Ashley on February 16th, 2009

In this economic landscape, we look for deals underneath nearly every rock – or pile of bills, for that matter. Well, here’s a deal for you to think about, even in the midst of winter. Consider a combination appliance, such as a portable air conditioner with added functionalities.

Okay, hear me out. (I swear I can hear those of you in the North chuckling: “Why on earth would I buy a portable air conditioner, now?!”) Does it sometimes seem like you need to have an appliance for every task? For instance, I have observed this problem when it comes to my electric cooking appliances. Stuffed in my pantry, I’ve got an electric vegetable chopper, a quesadilla maker, a sandwich maker, an indoor grill/griddle, a s’mores maker, and a waffle iron. Now, every time I open my pantry and stare at this mess of culinary technology, I think “Why can’t someone just make one appliance that does all of these things?”

Apparently, portable air conditioner (PAC) manufacturers have already received this memo.

Companies like Amcor, DeLonghi, Soleus Air, Sunpentown, and a handful of others now offer portable units that feature heating, cooling, dehumidification, and air purification capabilities – all rolled into one. So instead of purchasing separate units to cool, heat, dehumidify, and purify your air, you can ideally buy one appliance that caters to all of your needs and saves you a little money in the process.

DeLonghi Pinguino T110P Here’s a good option. The DeLonghi Pinguino T110P Portable Air Conditioner functions as an 11,000-BTU air conditioner that can cool a 350-square-foot space, a dehumidifier with a 60-pint moisture-removal capacity, and an electrostatic air purifier that removes airborne allergens and irritants.

Amcor NanoMax A12000EHAnother choice is the Amcor NanoMax A12000EH Portable AC, which can cool a 400-square-foot space with 12,000 BTUs of power and heat that same space to a comfortable warmth using 7,000-BTUs of power. Additionally, this unit dehumidifies by removing 60 pints of water per day.

Soleus Air PA1-12R-32 Other top combo units include the 5-in-1 Soleus Air PA1-12R-32 Portable Air Conditioner, which functions as a PAC, a heater, a dehumidifier, a HEPA air purifier, and a fan; and the Sunpentown WA-1310E Portable Air Conditioner, which can also purify the air with a particle filter, a carbon filter, and bacteria-killing UV germicidal light.

Be sure to browse through all of Sylvane.com’s portable air conditioners to find more combination PAC appliances that might turn into the perfect solution for your ever-growing needs – and perhaps your dwindling budget.
