LG Portable Air Conditioners fill a vital niche in the market of portable air conditioners, providing strong cooling power with less weight than other models.  To be clear, the term “portable” refers to the fact that a particular air conditioning unit does not require a permanent installation.  It does not mean that these units are light weight.  LG portable air conditioners weigh in at around 60 pounds, while other portable air conditioning units can weigh in excess of 80 pounds.

Many of the features found in LG portable air conditioners are standard features found in many different makes and models of air conditioners, including such niceties as a remote control, a programmable 24-hour timer, multiple fan speeds, and an auto-evaporation feature, meaning that the air conditioner doesn’t need to be emptied of excess water.  Since these air conditioners also dehumidify, buying the portable air conditioner with the appropriate cooling power will keep any room cool and dry.

Put simply, the BTU rating of portable air conditioners is simply a measure of their cooling power.  LG portable air conditioners range in power from 7000 BTUs to 14000 BTUs, respectively.  For the equivalent room size, the manufacturer suggests that their 7000 BTU models will effectively cool a space of 200 square feet.  On the opposite end of the spectrum, the 14000 BTU beast is estimated to effectively cool a room of 600 square feet.  What’s more, that model doubles as a heating unit as well.

Realizing that individual needs are different, LG portable air conditioners allow something for everyone.  Some of the portable air conditioners produced by LG are designed to run quietly.  Others run with energy efficiency in mind.  And LG portable air conditioners come in a range of sizes to cool a range different room sizes.  While there are many factors to consider when buying a portable air conditioner, it is likely that within the lineup of available LG portable air conditioners one such unit will be quiet and efficient enough to cool any room in any apartment or home.
