Some points to consider when choosing a portable/mobile air conditioner
Building size Example
Square Feet Approximate
- Add BTU by 10% for sunny areas
- Add BTU by 10% for second story (or higher) rooms
- Add 4,000 BTU if area to be cooled is in the kitchen
- Add 600 BTU for each additional person (using room) over 2 persons
BTU Size Too Large
An air conditioner that has a higher BTU rating than the room size requires will tend to cycle off too quickly. The unit will not properly remove the moisture from the air.
BTU Size Too Small
An air conditioner that has a lower BTU rating than the room size requires will run continuously. The unit will not adequately cool the room.
Window Air Conditioners- Are for windows that slide up and down.
Casement Air Conditioners- Are for windows that swing out to the left or right (usually with a hand crank).
Wall Air Conditioners- Goes through the wall of a building and requires a sleeve. Sleeves are sold separately and can be found in the air conditioner accessories category
Portable Air Conditioners- Great for a no window office or room, these
are relatively new to the market. They are portable so they can be taken
These units must be ventilated.... the exhaust must go somewhere outside of the room.
For a better estimate go to
http://www.consumerreports.org/ and click on appliances, there is a super chart that helps you work out what cooling capacity you will need.
Cooling capacity is reflected very much in price. A small 7500 BTU unit can cost as little as $499 but a 12000 BTU unit will rarely come in under $650.
The truly portable or monoblock air conditioner has to get rid of the condensation created by cooling humid air and also has to vent out the heat. Some units have a drip tray or tank/bucket that the condensate runs in to and this has to be emptied fairly regularly, but many vent out the hot air and evaporate the condensed water through an exhaust hose. Alternatively, other units have a drain pipe which can be drained through a nearby window or hole in the wall. If you don’t want to be emptying a bucket, check the specifications of the aircon unit that you are interested in before purchasing.
When purchasing your mobile air conditioner on the internet, delivery charges become an issue. At airconditionershack.com we have chosen suppliers that will deliver their air conditioning units to most states. We have specified a “usual” delivery charge on each unit, but each supplier will quote delivery before you commit yourself to purchasing.
Generally, the suppliers who charge less for their air conditioning units charge more for delivery……so do take this in to consideration.
Most people like portable air conditioning units because of their small size. Do check the dimensions and be sure that it is going to fit in to the space that you have planned for it!!
Many modern portable air conditioners now come as a multi-functional air conditioner, heater, multi-speed cooler fan and dehumidifier, with remote control, timers, sleep function Check specifications; because if you don’t want all of these functions, there is no point in paying for them.
