To stay cool when it is impractical, impossible or cost prohibitive to install a traditional air conditioning
unit, some people use portable air conditioners. They are maneuverable and easy to install. In fact they
don't even need to be permanently installed. They just need to be vented. Portable air conditioners are

One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a portable air conditioner is the BTU
rating. BTU stands for British thermal unit, which is a unit of energy used in power, steam generation and
heating and air conditioning industries. BTU rating describes power and cooling capacities. It measures
the heat that an air conditioner can remove from a room. The higher the value, the stronger the air
conditioner. BTU ratings usually range and the size needed depends on the area being cooled.
Your portable air conditioners cooling efficiency can be affected by the wrong BTU value. If there is a
higher value that the corresponding room size the unit will cycle on and off too quickly and will not Air

is wasted, electric bills are increased and the unit is strained. Also, there is a chance that the unit can

cold. If the BTU rating is lower than the corresponding room size, the room will not be adequately
