✅ Ivation Portable Air Conditioner Review.
** Update: read our new Ivation Portable AC Review in 2019
The Ivation AC is an ideal choice for anyone looking for fast cooling.
During the hottest summer months, bedrooms can be unbearably hot — personally I can’t sleep if my bedroom is above 80°F.
Fortunately portable air conditioners have become more affordable. They have similar BTU cooling power as a window air conditioner, but are much quieter (making them ideal for bedrooms).
They’re also super easy to install – the Ivation AC comes 95% fully assembled.
Set up time: 10 ~ 15 mins
Temp range: 62°F ~ 86°F
As a 12,000 BTU portable air conditioner, the Ivation is one of the most popular ACs online.

The Ivation portable air conditioner is perfect for cooling rooms 300 ~ 400 sq. ft.
Using the remote control you can control most of its functionality — on/off, temperature change, fan speed, and dehumidifier
It also comes w/ a hose-style exhaust which frees up window space. (this way you’ll still get sunlight!)
How It Performs:
With its compact size, the Ivation AC sits nicely in a corner or along the wall.
Very simple to operate too — once set up the easy-touch controls or remote control let you set the speed.
The Ivation AC also manages humidity.
It comes with a built-in dehumidifier removing up to 61 pints of moisture (per day).
The dehumidifier requires low maintenance — It’ll beep 8x and P1 will appear on the display panel at the top to alert you when the tank needs to be emptied.
** Also you have an option set up a direct hose for continuous drainage — this way you never have to worry about emptying the tank.

Reviews & Thoughts:
The Ivation portable air conditioner was a top seller in 2017 and 2018.
Buyers say it’s a high-quality AC that’s just as powerful as a window unit, and much easier to install. (** window ac units can be heavy and bulky)
Many buyers use it strictly as their bedroom air conditioner.
From what I see, the Ivation is perhaps the best portable air conditioner for city apartments.
