In the experts opinion the fastest growth in demand is likely to be in countries such as the UK, simply because in the UK there is a minimal air-conditioning infrastructure, and as summers are getting hotter, this demand will continue to grow.

It is very easy for us all to directly control our climate at home, such as closing windows and drawing curtains on the sunny side of the house, trees can also provide cooling shade, as can awnings or porches. However, if the heat finally drives you to consider air conditioning then it is best to choose a unit which is ‘fit for purpose’ for your cooling needs.
Recent extremely hot summers in the whole of Europe have seen a growing interest in air conditioning especially portable air conditioning units which can have a substantially lower price tag attached to it as opposed to a fully installed air conditioning system. The recent hot conditions especially in August 2003 have been reported to have caused 35000 additional deaths across Europe, 2045 of which were reported in the UK for the 10 days of the heat wave, thus climate change predictions, by the UK Climate Impacts Programme, suggest that future summers will be hotter, thus forcing the consumer to look for mechanical cooling in the home.
Portable air conditioners are free standing air conditioning units and are the latest trend in home cooling. The advantage with these free standing units is that they are easily portable and have great energy efficiency. These portables can be used in the home or office, and work both as air conditioning and dehumidifier which results in keeping the air in a room both cool and dry.
As the name suggests, a portable air conditioner is free standing and does not need any complex installation, its wheels give complete portability and the unit can be easily moved from one room to another when needed. When looking to buy a portable unit, it is important to calculate the area of the room or rooms to be cooled. BTU is a measure of the portables power, furthermore many of the latest units also have features such as self-evaporation, and some models can also be used as a heater in winter.
