electriQ P18HP Review.
Portable air conditioning units are starting to catch on in the UK — they are perfect for city flats, older homes, or public areas (such as university dormitories).
Here are a few reasons you might consider a portable air conditioner.
#1.) High-powered : some have similar cooling power as a mini split ac system
#2.) Quiet operation – Low noise compared to full systems
#3.) Easy install – being on wheels, they’re portable and versatile around the house
