Dec. 27, 2012 - PRLog -- One of the greatest pros of portable air conditioners is their ability to cool small areas which saves on the energy required to run a central air conditioning system.  Of course as with anything there are pros and cons and it takes a little research to sort them out.

In many businesses today portable air conditioning units with proper matching to the square footage of a room can help lower cooling costs especially when supplementing a central air conditioning system, furthermore especially valuable when using in rooms that generate more heat, such as offices with copiers, computers and other equipment.

There are many benefits attached to portable air conditioning (, and many people do not realise that there are various health risks during the summer months, especially if it is a hot one, thus making air conditioning essential for homes and workplaces.

Health risks related to extreme heat is headaches, dizziness, dehydration and heat stroke, not to mention that hot weather is responsible for an increase in allergies such as hay fever and heat rash.  A portable air conditioner ( or in fact an installed air conditioning system can eliminate pollen and bacteria in the air thus preventing the break out of rashes.

Further pros to the purchase of portable air conditioners (, they certainly reduce the cost of energy bills being extremely energy efficient, they are simple to use especially for the elderly, requires no installation, and is cost effective.  Nearly everything we purchase to day requires inconvenient installation, but the portable air conditioner is ready to use on arrival.

Installed air conditioning systems can be pricey and are not flexible in terms of movability once they are fixed that is where they will live, whereas a portable unit can be moved where required and are suitable for both domestic and commercial use.

So what about the cons, the main drawback of a portable unit is the energy rating, the current minimum requirement for an air conditioner energy usage is 10 SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio), and although many air conditioners meet or exceed this number, many do not, and that is why it is vital when in the market for a portable unit you seek the advice of the professionals.

The other downside is condensation; some models do have a system that removes condensates through the vent exhaust, also drip pans that must be emptied, also noise, some models are noticeably louder than any other type of air conditioning system.

A spokesman for Climachill air conditioning specialists located on the South coast of the UK said “our portable air conditioners have a top quality HITACHI compressor which maximises output yet minimises noise, also our portable units use the up-to-date technology for both cooling and heating systems.  The latest breakthrough for a portable unit is ‘self-evaporative water recycling’ which simply means that portable air conditioning systems can re-use a large percentage of the water it creates, this eliminates the need to empty drip trays so frequently”.

The pros outweigh the cons simply because with lower prices, flexibility and no installation, offering a better alternative for residences without central air conditioning, and more importantly you can cool the rooms that are in use.  Best plan is to research before you buy.
