Summer in Canada can be absolutely beautiful, but depending on where you're located, things can also get hot. And while some people are huge fans of the scorching temperatures, others (like myself) would rather keep cool indoors.
If your home or apartment doesn't have central AC, it can be challenging to beat the heat with just electric fans. That's why portable electric air conditioners are the next best thing for cooling your space without having to invest thousands of dollars in pricey upgrades.
With three modes to choose from (cooling, dehumidifier and fan), this versatile air conditioner is a must for summer.
It features a lightweight design that's intended to be used in spaces up to 350 sq. ft., such as the bedroom, living room, classroom, garage or office. It also has rolling wheels for easy portability, and comes with a remote control for added convenience.
What people are saying
"Extremely easy to set it up and get it running."
"Works exceptionally fast in cooling off the house."
"Unit is a bit loud...but breeze is cool and refreshing."
This portable AC has racked up a 4.2-star average rating from more than 8,000 customer reviews. Amazon shoppers say that it's "very easy to install" and "provides fast, powerful cooling" — especially in small spaces.
One reviewer shared that it "works well in apartments," with another reviewer adding that it cooled their entire bachelor apartment "in less than five minutes."
Others have praised this unit for giving "good bang for your buck." At $400, it certainly isn't cheap, but has been called "an excellent investment" by shoppers.
Reviewers do note that this AC unit is on the loud side, so it may not be the best option if you prefer a quiet environment while you're sleeping. It's also "fairly heavy," which is important to consider if you have strength or mobility issues.
If you're looking for an effective way to cool down this summer, the SereneLife Portable Electric Air Conditioner is a solid bet. It combines an air conditioner, fan, and dehumidifier in one, making for a versatile device that can be used year-round.
While shoppers say that it is on the loud side when running, the fact that it quickly cools down any space makes it a worthwhile purchase.
