Then, you will need to buy an appliance with a timer function, which will allow you to decide when your portable air conditioner should turn on and off.

For example: you can order your portable air conditioner to turn off in 30 minutes or maybe in two hours, but you can’t order it to turn on at 9 o’clock and turn off at 12 o’clock.
Among the best models with timers, we recommend Pinguino De’Longhi PAC AN97.
