A portable AC can be easily relocated because it has wheels attached to the bottom. The cooling power of the unit is expressed in BTUs.

An air conditioning unit has an exhaust hose that allows the system to transfer hot air out of the room. High-end units also do the opposite and are capable of heating a room during the winter months. This method of heat transfer is more efficient than using an electric heater. Individuals can purchase this type of system if they want to have control over the interior temperature year round. Paying a little more for a unit that heats and cools eliminates the need to purchase a separate heater.
