Portable Air Conditioner: Koldfront AP12000S-KF
This next portable air conditioner has been one of our best sellers for quite a long time. And, for a limited time, our sister site, CompactAppliance.com, is offering it at a discount price with coupon code PACDEAL. Here’s Scott to tell you about the Koldfront AP12000S-KF Extreme Cool Portable Air Conditioner.
Hi I’m Scott with Koldfront and this is the AP12000S-KF portable air conditioner. This 12,000 BTU portable air conditioner is perfect for a room 300 to 425 square feet. Now I know that’s a wide range, but it’s all going to depend on the heat load in the room.
If it’s a room that has a lot of direct sunlight, had a lot of computer or electronic equipment or a lot of lights in it that generate heat, you’re going to want to stay toward the 300 square feet. If it’s a pretty closed off room, doesn’t have a lot of direct sunlight or those additional heat sources, it’ll be great for about 425 square feet.
The reason why I like this unit is that it has the Cool Boost technology. What that is, is the compressor will kick on and give an extra boost of cold air – that means the compressor is not running as often. Now I know you’re thinking: well, then it’s going fast and it’s going to be expensive to run. That’s not the case. Running this portable air conditioner 24 hours day will cost you about 85 cents a day to run. That’s right, only 85 cents a day to cool 24 hours.
Another great thing about this unit is that it will dehumidify up to 90 pints per day. Meaning it will take about 90 pints of moisture out of the air and what it does, as with all portable air conditioners, is that it will collect the moisture down here at the bottom – the great thing about this unit is that it also has the patented Z-spray technology – so it’s going to evaporate that condensation and blow it out of the exhaust here in the rear.
Hook up your exhaust hose here and you exhaust it out of the room. The easiest way to do that is going to be through a window, however people do get creative, they do it through ceilings, floors, through a wall, and you can even go through a chimney. All you have to do is make sure you’re getting the hot air coming off the compressor out of the room that you’re trying to cool.
This portable air conditioner also comes with a remote so you don’t have to get up off the couch, you can just adjust it. There are 3 settings on it: cool, fan only and that dehumidify function.
Finally, it has a wide range thermostat on it, so it will go between 61 and 89 degrees Fahrenheit. So you’ll be able to find the perfect temperature for your room. Again, I’m Scott with the Koldfront AP12000S-KF portable air conditioner.
