Portable air conditioning units have been specially designed to meet the cooling needs of someone who wants to cool a very small area such as an apartment, or an office or a single room. The goal is that they use this smaller and very portable unit to cool off a little area rather than running central air that can cost a lot of money to run.
Before the introduction of these very handy portable air conditioning units, there was no way for people to save money if they had a central air conditioning system. When a room got to warm and needed cool air, either you had to open a window or use a fan or run the entire system which might cool every room, even the ones who didn’t need it.
That meant people were spending a huge amount on their electricity bills and wasting electricity on rooms that were not even hot. Plus if you choose to use this machine you will discover that they are very energy efficient and therefore can lower your electricity bills even more.
Easy to Install
One of the reasons these small air conditioners are so popular is that they are extremely easy to set up. They don’t need an elaborate setup, you just need a window for the vent to go out and then you are ready to go. Plug it in and turn it on and any room, no matter how small or big can be cooled very efficiently.
How They Work
All of the portable systems are built with wheels, are extremely small in size and can very easily be store away when not in use. Usually you will find these machines come in capacities of 6,000 BTU to 60,000 BTU. You can find any size you need for any size room.
