In fact, we have some customers who have central air conditioners installed in their homes who have decided to use a portable air conditioner rather than turning on the central air during the hot summer months. A portable air conditioner is a cost-effective and efficient way to stay cool.
Here are our Danby 8000 BTU portable air conditioner reviews
Relying on a portable air conditioner unit will not only save you money, but it will also save you from the heat. In recent years, portable air conditioners have become much better at cooling. And one of the top-selling portable A/C units is the Danby DPAC8KDB Portable Air Conditioner.
The Danby 8000 is capable of cooling rooms up to about 200 feet². This unit, therefore, would be ideal for keeping a bedroom or office cool during the summer months.
Like I said, however, many people are picking up a couple of portable air conditioners and installing them around their homes so that they do not have to turn on the central air conditioner during the summer.
Some folks have crunched the numbers on how much this portable air conditioner cost to run on a monthly basis. For example, we know a guy who uses a Danby to keep is office cool. By his estimates, it’s about $9 a month to keep this unit running 5 days per week. That is certainly a lot cheaper than using a heavy-duty central air conditioner to keep your entire home cool.
The Danby units come with a number of key features. The remote control is nice when you want to set the unit from across the room. The Danby also comes with a nice filter which will clean out bacteria our pollen from your home. This is particularly useful if anyone in your family suffers from asthma or allergies.
Danby 8000 BTU Portable AC Installation
In terms of installation, the Danby is pretty simple to get up and going.
Like all portable air conditioners these days, the Danby comes with the kit to help you install the venting hose through a window or sliding door.
People use the Danby and server rooms have also jerry rigged it to vent through a drop panel ceiling. That is always an option.
The venting takes about 5 minutes to set up and exhausts the hot air out of your home.
So if you’re looking for a way to save money on your air conditioning bills this summer (even if you are to have central air conditioner in your home), a Danby might just be what you’re looking for.
