Pros Very quiet, decently portable, solid cooling powerExceptionally portable, fairly quiet, relatively energy-efficientGreat value, highly portable, performed well in our energy-efficiency testVery quiet, decent cooling powerQuiet
Cons Expensive, bulky window insertSo-so cooling performance in our testRuns on the louder side, not the most impressive cooling performanceHigh energy consumption, expensiveExpensive, costly to run
Bottom Line If you have to deal with triple-digit temperatures on a regular basis, then this might be the perfect A/C unit for youA fantastic option if you plan on moving your A/C from room to roomIf you are hoping to save some cash when shopping for a new A/C and don’t live in the hottest of locations, then we think this very portable option could be the one for youThis is the best 14,000 BTU air conditioner we have tested but there are better option out there for most peopleThis is a decent A/C but much less expensive models did quite a bit better
