Portable Air Conditioners for Small Rooms
Some rooms just do not have the proper air conditioning to make them comfortable for consistent use. A practical solution for this type of setting, whether in residential or commercial buildings, is to set up a portable air conditioner. The Portable air conditioners with less than 10,000 British Thermal Units (BTUs) are able to treat spaces up to 450 square feet.
Cooling Efficiency with Minimum Effort
Portable air conditioners are a convenient way to make any space in your home or office more comfortable when the heat outside rises. Whether you are looking to supplement your central air or only need to cool one small space, a portable air conditioner is a lightweight, energy efficient solution. Why cool an entire house or building when you can select the right temperature for a specific room or area. Portable air conditioners with less than 10,000 BTUs are easy to use and require very little installation.
They must have a way to vent the air through a hose that connects to a window space, but the installation is simple with a minimal invasion of window space so that you can keep as much light and view as possible. Since proximity to windows is important for the functionality of the portable air conditioner unit, be sure that you have a clear area near a window in the room in which you plan to place the unit. Many of these units are also able to drain the excess moisture through the hosing or with a specific removable drainage system. All air conditioners pull moisture out of the air as they cool, so portable air conditioners have to be drained occasionally either manually or with a hose. Most of the small units available through Living Direct offer some self-evaporative designs to make it even more convenient to use a small portable air conditioner.
Smaller portable air conditioners like those made by Friedrich, Danby, and EdgeStar are affordable and easy to transport from one spot to another. Most of these devices weigh around 60 pounds and come in sleek dimensions that are around 30 inches high on average. These air conditioners are much smaller than window mounted air conditioners and have the advantage of using less energy while producing less white noise. Since there are likely to be months in the year that you will not need your portable air conditioner, these units are easily moved on castors or with accessible handles to make them convenient to transport and store.
Getting your room to be just the right temperature with small portable air conditioners is easy because of the digital thermostat controls. Many units also feature handy remote controls to allow you to adjust the temperature without getting up to manually adjust. Another design to look for is automatic shut off so that you do not have to worry about the machine running longer than you are in the room. The automatic shut off features are another way that these small air conditioner systems save you money.
When you purchase a small portable air conditioner from Living Direct, you can have the satisfaction of knowing that your low BTU unit is the right unit for the job. These small air conditioners are not designed for huge spaces, but having cooler air in the 200-450 square foot areas they do cool makes a big difference for those within that area.
