Our picks for the best portable AC unit:
1. LG: on Amazon – http://geni.us/lg12kbtu or on Home Depot – http://fave.co/2uWyoAF
2. Whynter: http://geni.us/whynter14sh

4. Honeywell: http://geni.us/honeywellmn10

When searching for a portable AC unit, you should consider its weight, noise emissions, warranty, cooling and moisture-removing capabilities and energy efficiency. You should also consider whether it has additional features like timers, remotes, or heating capabilities.

To test each AC unit, we measured average temperature change per minute in an office and great room and also took a decibel reading of each unit’s noise level. We compared each unit’s efficiency, weight and additional features.

After testing, we found that the LG – 12,000 BTU was powerful, efficient and quiet, making it the best portable air conditioner overall. You can see more details in our full review here: https://www.yourbestdigs.com/reviews/the-best-portable-air-conditioner

My 10k LG is doing pretty well in my 120 sqft bedroom. On the 95 days it only cools down to about 78 though.

Reading the comments, I realize the gap between individuals’ level of comfort is so vast. We set out home central air unit to 78-80 :D. Guess I won’t be able to spot a defective unit even if we have one haha,

Jeremy says:

Don’t know where your getting that these things cool 500 sq feet my room is only 154 sq ft and after running it all night I could barely tell any difference from the rooms I wasn’t cooling. Its cold if you are directly in the air flow but it doesn’t cool the room. I used your review before making my purchase and am incredibly disappointed. The L.G sucks. Don’t waste your money if you want to cool a room it wont do it.

Nicholas Hartzler says:

Why doesn’t anyone talk about how stupid single hose units are? Single hose units easily dump 200 cfm of your conditioned air out the window and that displaced air has to be replaced from somewhere. Most likely by sucking 200 CFM of hot attic air in. I have the 12k LG on loan from my AC company while they fix the mistakes they made. on a 95 degree day it cant keep my 15×15 bedroom cool at 4 feet off the ground. you can feel the difference when you walk in. I actually worry about my dogs being stuck inside all day with this ac.

Danny plays says:

Hey guys I just want to say how I dont get it and why do u just turn down the speed of the fan down its common sence

Bob A says:

sounds like the window units are the most efficient. Thanks for the heads up. Here I thought these units were a great alternative to a window unit. At over $400.00, this looks like a big waste of cash. Go back to Ice blocks and fans like our forefathers used! LOL

belly tripper says:

***ALL OF THE AIR COOLERS ARE USELESS BECAUSE THE EXHAUST PIPE COULD NOT BE SEALED COMPLETELY!!** ENOUGH SAID. I HAVE MINE IN MY CLOSET NOW, NEVER TO BE USED AGAIN!!!!

TO YALL SAYING PORTABLE AC’S ARE THE WAY TO GO SO YOU DON’T COOL DOWN YOUR WHOLE HOUSE JUST TO COOL ONE ROOM, ARE ***CERTIFIED LIARS!!!***

YALL CAN BASH ME ALL YOU WANT, BUT I TELL IT LIKE IT IS!!

deamon5959 says:

i had the same LG unit for a few years. it’s a good unit but i wouldn’t consider it quiet.

makemful says:

What about us Brits?

The links you have are for Americans… possible to see if can get in the UK? As, a google search.. and I can’t find the LG 12,000BTU anywhere for sale in the UK. Many thanks 🙂

I bought the LG 12,000 BTU and It lasted less than 100 hours and now throws out more heat than cool air It was 1 week passed the warranty when I noticed there was something wrong but I now think this was gradual right from day 1 when I bought It In September I know I was sold a defective product and am out $600 there should be better consumer protection In the Air conditioning Industry I feel I got totally ripped off by LG and Home Depot.

how to order

birther1968 says:

Where does the condensate go??

machfive916 says:

When my central A/C finally gave out, I had a 4 day wait until my new system was installed. I bought a 12000 BTU LG unit and it kept my spare bedroom / computer room and attached bathroom very cold. Also, even after running for 24 hours straight, there was less than 6 ounces of water to drain, as it sprays the water over the coil to both cool it and evaporate the water.

Fender Bender says:

Tested but not priced.  What is your on budget.Best should be based on price categories.

Fan and Air conditioner dude says:

In my opinion I either recommend window units or central air but whynther is the best in my opinion

Aldo Carroll says:
