All You Need to Know About Portable Air Conditioners

One of the greatest advantages of portable air conditioning is that it doesn't require any type of permanent installation. Compact, easy to maneuver, and fully portable, they are ideal for situations where installing a standard air conditioner may not be cost-effective or possible. 

In addition to providing cooling comfort, portable air conditioners also act as dehumidifiers due to the refrigeration cycle.  So for those living in humid climates, these units will keep you both cool and comfortable.
