Pros QuietExceptionally portable, fairly quiet, relatively energy-efficientGreat value, highly portable, performed well in our energy-efficiency testVery quiet, decently portable, solid cooling powerVery quiet, decent cooling power
Cons Expensive, costly to runSo-so cooling performance in our testRuns on the louder side, not the most impressive cooling performanceExpensive, bulky window insertHigh energy consumption, expensive
Bottom Line This is a decent A/C but much less expensive models did quite a bit betterA 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 youIf you have to deal with triple-digit temperatures on a regular basis, then this might be the perfect A/C unit for youThis is the best 14,000 BTU air conditioner we have tested but there are better option out there for most people
