The EdgeStar Ultra Compact Portable Air Conditioner rates the highest.
Consumer feedback emphasizes how this model keeps things cool during hot northeastern summer weather.
One satisfied customer noted how her dorm space remained cool even during a four-day heat wave that drove the external temperature to 99 degrees Fahrenheit.
The timer makes it easy to set the temperature in anticipation of walking in to a cool and comfortable room or waking up in comfort each day.
This EdgeStar model performs well in terms of maintaining the desired internal room temperature, but the noise level may be an issue depending on your point of view. Some people may be bothered by the constant sound, but others may find the steady noise to be a innocuous background hum that actually helps them fall asleep, relax, or study. The noise may help drown out distracting lively hallway noise or busy street traffic sounds as well.
The installation is straightforward and can be completed in less than half an hour without assistance. The design is sleek and updated by many comparisons, and staying cool in school may be an everyday possibility with the addition of an 8,000 BTU EdgeStar in your living space.
