Why You Should Consider a Portable Air Conditioner or Space Heater

Portable heating and cooling units aren’t just a convenient backup option when your heating or cooling suddenly goes out or for homes that don’t have large-scale HVAC systems — they’re also a great way to help save on monthly utility costs and minimize energy usage.

For homes with existing heating and cooling setups, a portable unit can help you maintain more comfortable temperatures in rooms you spend the most time in. This allows you to lower your home’s thermostat and stop wasting energy heating or cooling rooms you rarely occupy. With a space heater or portable air conditioner, you can be more efficient and simply warm or cool specific rooms for greater flexibility.

Finding the Best Space Heaters and Portable Air Conditioners for Your Home

The convenience and effectiveness of a space heater or portable air conditioner all depends on its design and features. When you’re shopping for a new space heater or portable air conditioner, make sure you look for:

  • Portability and size: Space heaters and portable air conditioners come in all shapes and sizes, and you’ll likely want the ability to move your unit from one space to another. Most portable units are a manageable size and lightweight so that you can easily transport them, but others may be larger and bulkier. Look for added portability features like handles or wheels to aid in movement.
  • Features: Make your space heater or portable air conditioner adapt to your needs, not the other way around. When shopping for portable air conditioners, look for added improvements for ease-of-use like programmable thermostats, auto drain systems, remote controls, dehumidifier improvements, or units that combine both heating and cooling functions in a single unit. For space heaters, find models with outstanding safety features for added peace of mind like oxygen depletion sensors and a tip-over cutoff.
  • Positioning and installation: Typically, portable units are easy to set-up and use, but before buying a new machine, double check the heater or air conditioner's installation requirements and make sure to find a spot with plenty of clearance – portable air conditioners will need plenty of airflow for optimal effectiveness, while space heaters need to be away from items that can easily catch fire.
  • Room size: Heaters and air conditioners are only as effective as their capacity allows – make sure to choose models best suited for the rooms they’ll be placed in. Portable units that are too small for a space won’t provide the necessary comfort.
  • Control settings: While you need additional sources for the most effective heating and cooling of your home, that doesn’t mean you always want to run your space heater and portable air conditioner on its highest setting. You can easily find more advanced models with a variety of heating and cooling settings, or more basic versions with simple low, medium, and high settings.
