Portable, Energy-saving, and Easy-to-operate- these are some of the enticing features of 12,000- BTU Haier HPN 12CXM that make it second to none when seeking for a portable air conditioner. Users have reported thumb up for its cooling efficiency and overall performance over the similarly-sized air conditioners.
The performance of an Air conditioner not only depends on its size and technology used, but also relies on the room conditions. Keeping this point in mind, the Haier Portable AC is made for particular room areas only. The notable feature of a Haier 12,000 BTU is the self-evaporation functionality that evaporates the residual water and thus, makes it easy to relocate anywhere in the room. This lightweight model is about 67 pounds, which is slightly more than that of an average portable air conditioner. It has a built-in caster to help you shift it from one place to another.
If you are money-minded, you would love to hear that even though it is giving tough competition to Whynter ARC143MX, it is available at just $400 whereas the Whynter costs for $600.
Let’s consider its output results from different objectives:
Equipped with dual functionality features such as dry cooling & residual water evaporation, Haier 12,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner evaporates up to 4.2 pints of water in an hour while other portable AC's can reach up to 3.7 pints per hour. This feature makes it a pioneer in the portable AC segment with both air conditioning and dehumidifying capabilities.
The minor flaw that one can observe in Haier 12,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner is that it is less energy-efficient when compared to other portable air conditioners. It has an EER of 10, which is just above the average EER of 9.8. This can be because it operates as a multi-purpose gadget performing different functionalities at one or another time. If you neglect the power consumption factor, it is still leading among portable ACs.
It’s about cooling capacity. This portable unit produces nearly 12,000 BTU whereas the other similar AC units emit about 14,000 BTU. That means it is ideal for a 550 Sq. Ft. room only while the other can cool down the room area of approx. 800 Sq. Ft.
