When choosing a portable air conditioner it is also important to consider the price. It would be useless to buy a portable air conditioner that cools the room, when at the time of the bill your body temperature would be able to reach (without any help) the lowest possible level. Just as it doesn’t make sense to spend a lot of money on a portable air conditioner that, in the end, doesn’t even cool that well.
In every purchase, you need to evaluate the product’s features and also its quality, and then combine these data with the final cost to understand whether or not the air conditioner in question is worth buying. That’s why in this article we’ll be recommending models that boast good value for money.

Portable air conditioners and prices: how to save money?
You can save money by choosing a portable air conditioner with energy efficiency class A or higher. Of course, you’d have to spend a bit more since A is the best energy class, but it’s also true that over time you’d have a definite gain (less electricity consumption and therefore less expensive bills). In this regard, we recommend reading the article: “Portable air conditioner with low energy consumption“.
You can also save money by choosing an air conditioner with adequate power. It’s useless to buy one that’s too powerful (which consequently consumes more energy) just as it’s useless to buy one that’s not powerful enough (it won’t cool the room properly). Therefore, in addition to objectively assessing the level of insulation of the room in which you intend to use the portable air conditioner, it is good to calculate the btu needed to cool it.
Do you want a portable air conditioner that is also useful in winter?
Then, buy a portable air conditioner with a heat pump that has dual hot/cold function (like Ellisse Hp). However, if you are not interested in this dual benefit, don’t buy a hot/cold product. As these models cost more and consequently it would be an unnecessary expense and useless for you.
Moreover, you have to rely on quality brands. If not, you run the risk of the product being really shoddy. Finding yourself with an ineffective air conditioner that needs to be replaced after just a few months. And maybe the assistance service is almost non-existent. On the other hand, brands like De Longhi or Argo (and others) guarantee the security of having an after-sales service (so in case of breakdowns you know who to call and who to ask for support).
