Full Answer

The Edgestar portable model is touted as having lower noise levels than similar models. It is able to cool areas of up to 475 square feet. The control panel is located on top of the unit, making it easy to access. It can also be programmed to go into sleep mode. The Frigidaire portable model has three cooling settings that cool areas of up to 640 square feet. In sleep mode, this unit continues the cooling process while remaining silent. The Frigidaire easily switches to heat mode when required. The Honeywell portable model has a noise output of 53 A-weighted decibels and a cooling range of 450 square feet. This unit also doubles as a dehumidifier, extracting up to 70 pints of water within a 24-hour period.

Portable air conditioners are able to reach spots in a room that standard air conditioners can't. Portable units sit on wheels, which means they're easily moved to another area. Portable air conditioners perform best when located in a room with at least one window. Like non-portable models, they require adequate ventilation to release heat.
