Whirlpool AC is good but some models are not good because of the design. The models which is marketed as 3D cooling models are not good for long run. The reason is 3D cool models in Whirlpool are sucking the air from 3 sides of the indoor unit. Whirlpool is a reputed American brand providing decent series of air conditioners. Whirlpool ACs offers a good versatility and thoughtful innovation. Boasting 100+ years of experience, it is notably one of the few consumer durables companies to survive the adversity of great economic depression of the 1930s.

The three-speed fan, dehumidifier and cooling modes make the Honeywell MN10CESBB a good portable AC unit, especially for a humid climate. While it’s not the most energy-efficient model, it only costs around $90 to operate annually. Its short vent hose limits its adaptability to the space you have available, but this indoor air conditioner can effectively keep a 450-square-foot room comfortably cool. It circulates air at low, medium and high speeds to provide cooling against different levels of heat. Although its airflow of 174 cubic feet per minute were the lowest in our comparison, you should feel a noticeable difference within the first half hour of turning on the unit. It has a cooling power of 10,000 Btu. The Honeywell MN10CESBB’s dehumidifier continues to remove moisture whether this mode is selected or not. In the cooling mode alone, it removes up to 2.8 pints per hour from the air. It dispels water through the window vent using an automatic evaporation system, so there’s no drip pan or water tank to empty. Our estimated annual operating cost for this portable AC is $90.79, less than many larger units. Compared to the average energy efficiency among those reviewed, which was EER 9.7, the Honeywell’s score of 9.5 EER is good but slightly below average. On the plus side, this machine has the UL seal, signifying it meets industry standards for health and safety. The remote control is rather straightforward: a power button, arrow controls, speed buttons, a timer setting and mode change. Like the remote, the control panel’s digital display is minimal but easy to understand. Some downsides to this cooler is the lack of a sleep mode or auto-restart option. This means the AC doesn’t have the ability to adjust the temperature to a comfortable level while you sleep, and because it can’t restart on its own, your room may become uncomfortably warm after a power outage.

8. Haier

Haier

Haier

The Haier HWF05XCR-L is an affordable window air conditioner with enough power to cool a small room of about 150 square feet. This unit is energy efficient enough to be Energy Star certified. However, while its 11.2 Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) is good, it’s on the low end of the spectrum compared to other window AC models we reviewed. In addition to being quite affordable, it has low estimated annual energy costs. This Haier window unit removes about 1.6 pints of water from the air per hour, which puts it in the middle of the pack for dehumidifying abilities. It also has a dehumidify-only feature, which helps it remove more moisture from the air than it does when running in other modes. This could make it a good, economical choice if you live in a humid place. Along with the dehumidify-only mode, this AC has sleep and energy-saver modes. However, it doesn’t include an auto-restart feature, so if it loses power, it doesn’t automatically restore your settings when it turns on again. This Haier model is far from the most powerful window AC we looked at. Its maximum air flow rate is 135 cubic feet per minute, which is on the low end compared to other units we reviewed. In addition, it doesn’t have four-way directional louvers, so you can’t direct cool air to where you want it in the room. These factors, along with its 5,000 British thermal unit (Btu) cooling output, are why it is best suited to small rooms. This Haier AC has a standard one-year warranty on the appliance and the compressor. If you have questions or concerns, you can contact Haier via a toll-free number or an online contact form.
