As summer begins to wind down you may notice the days getting shorter and quite possibly the nights getting a little bit colder (depending on where you live). It has been a very hot summer as usual and as a result we have sold quite a few portable AC units. Each week there are a few manufacturers and models that always seem to pop up regardless of if they are on sale or not. We thought we would share this info to give you an inside as to which units are actually considered the best by consumers.
Whynter ARC-14SH 14,000 BTU Dual Hose w/ Heater
Time and time again we see this unit being purchased. It’s actually one of the most expensive machines available online, but it consistently sells and is one of the most searched for models on our website. We’ve talked about this unit a lot and you’ve probably seen it mentioned in many articles. The ARC 14-SH/S is the real deal and we’ve yet to see another manufacturer match its quality and performance.
Whynter ARC-12SDH 12,000 BTU Dual Hose w/ Heater
Coming in at number two is the ARC-12SDH. Despite having less BTU power this machine works just as efficient as the ARC-14SH. If you’re interested in Whynter but are on a budget, I would recommend this unit. Although, if you can afford the extra $100 or so I would suggest going with the 14SH instead.
Honeywell MN12CES 12,000 BTU /w Dehumidifier
I’m actually a little surprised that this machine came in at number three. Don’t get me wrong, Honeywell is a well-respected manufacturer and has been around for years. The unit functions well, looks very stylish and is one of the most modern looking and functioning mobile AC’s available online. The reason I’m surprised is because not only is this a single hose unit, but it costs as much as most dual hose units (currently on sale for $399.99 limited quantities). One key thing to note is that it’s quieter than most machines on the market, so that in itself may be the reason why it sells so well.
