De’Longhi PACAN120EW-3A Pinguino
DeLonghi Pinguino units are known for being near-silent (especially when maintaining cooler temperatures)
Noise Level: under 56 decibels
** FYI — a normal conversation is approx. 60 decibels.
I think one of the reasons they’ve become popular is their versatility — they have enough power for most residential rooms and quiet enough for bedrooms.
Pro tip: during peak summer months, pre-cooling is useful for bedrooms
A lot of buyers also use them because of their energy efficient operation.
Since they help conserve electricity, its often used as “supplemental” cooling in homes with high ceilings or rooms at the tail-end of the HVAC ventilation.
From reviews, buyers say they’re pleasantly surprised how quietly it operates.
De’Longhi PACAN120EW-3A Review
Using the remote control you can select the operation mode (i.e. air conditioning vs. fan) or set an exact temp.
Pinguino units will run max speed initially but will lower speed as it gets closer — buyers suggest that you pre-cool rooms using the remote control.
Temp Range: 65 – 86°F
DeLonghi PACAN120EW Pinguino is designed w/ a built-in dehumidifier and new “Real Feel” function.
After you set your desired room temp, you can activate the “Real Feel” mode using the remote control — this tells the ac to automatically adjust speed/power to create ideal room temp and relative humidity level (RH).
Very few portable air conditioners offer automated functions for temp and humidity.
“Real Feel” feature alone separates the DeLonghi PACAN120EW-3A from similar sized units.

Overall, the De’Longhi PACAN120EW-3A Pinguino portable ac is one of the best sellers in Canada this year.
It has affordable, yet moderate price tag, but the features like the whisper-quiet operation and “Real Feel” operation make it worth considering.
Few portable ACs offer automated settings for relative humidity and similar size dehumidifier-only units cost $200-300 alone.
DeLonghi PACAN120EW Pinguino has also received a ton of positive buyer reviews (and good star rating online).
For those seeking a portable AC for apartments or bedrooms, I think the DeLonghi Pinguino units are worth taking a look at.
