Pros Great value, highly portable, performed well in our energy-efficiency testExceptionally portable, fairly quiet, relatively energy-efficientVery quiet, decently portable, solid cooling powerVery quiet, decent cooling powerQuiet
Cons Runs on the louder side, not the most impressive cooling performanceSo-so cooling performance in our testExpensive, bulky window insertHigh energy consumption, expensiveExpensive, costly to run
Bottom Line If 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 youA fantastic option if you plan on moving your A/C from room to roomIf 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 peopleThis is a decent A/C but much less expensive models did quite a bit better
