In this review we’re going to look at the Olimpia Splendid Dolceclima Compact 8 portable air conditioner. Maybe you’ve already seen that there’s another model on the market that boasts an entirely similar name, except for the lack of the final 8. And maybe you’re also wondering:
But what’s the difference between Olimpia Splendid Dolceclima Compact and the Compact 8 version?
There are only two differences, one of a technical nature and one of an economic nature.
Which is?
Olimpia Splendid Dolceclima Compact 8 boasts a power of 8000 btu (which makes it suitable for rooms of up to 25 square metres) while the “only” Compact model has a higher power (9000 btu, therefore suitable for larger rooms).

Olimpia Dolceclima Compact 8: air conditioner, fan and dehumidifier!

With Olimpia Splendid Dolceclima Compact 8 you will not only buy a portable air conditioner, but also a fan and a dehumidifier. It will be a bit like having three appliances in one. And as for the ventilation function, you can adjust it up to three speeds. The dehumidification capacity, on the other hand, is 1 l/h. Condensation in this case must be collected with a basin of water, while in air conditioning mode it is automatically disposed of.

You can switch between these functions either by interacting with the control panel or the remote control, so you don’t even have to get out of bed or the sofa to reach the unit. Various settings are easy to read thanks to the LCD display.
Consumption is also a strong point of this product, since the estimated consumption is about 800 w/h (the portable air conditioner Olimpia belongs to energy class A).
