Trying to figure out if you should buy a portable a/c? Here are a few advantages that might help:
This is the primary benefit of a portable air conditioner. You can put it where you want when you want. It is also perfect for smaller locations where window or split type units are not an option. Even if all you want at the time is a portable dehumidifier, just move the unit in and set it to dry.
When it comes to installing air conditioners, even if you were able to put a window or split type, you might be compromising the space you want to cool. With a portable, you can put it exactly where you want it.
There is no installation hassle with portable air conditioners. You set it up, plug it in and off you go. Other units require teams of people to come and installation that requires drilling and making holes that will need to be covered up later when the unit is changed or removed.
Take the cooling to where it is needed. Even homes with whole house air conditioners opt to have a portable unit on hand. You can save a lot of money by only cooling the room that you are in rather than the entire house.
Some whole house or built in units can’t handle a sudden influx of extra people. Your air conditioning system was likely installed with just your family in mind. But what about when you have people over? Just add additional cooling with a portable air conditioner.
