LG LP0818WNR Review.
If you have an older home or a city apartment, owning a portable air conditioner could be the perfect solution for beating the summer heat.
Benefits of a portable air conditioner:
1.) Quieter than a window unit
2.) Cheaper than HVAC installation and mini split systems
3.) AC on wheels = No carrying
Today’s models are more advanced than ever.
Some of the features and functions you can expect from units such as the LG LP0818WNR include:
fast cooling, remote control, good energy efficiency, dehumidify, and sleep mode (for quieter operation)
LG portable air conditioner is offered in multiple sizes.

Prices range between $280 and $450 – from the online reviews, the LG 8000 BTU portable air conditioner is the most popular for consumers. It’s super versatile and can cool mostly any room size.
LG LP0818WNR Review:
As one of the newer units, the LG LP0818WNR portable air conditioner offers top features:
– Thermostat (for setting room temp)
– Built-in dehumidifier
– LED display panel
– Remote control
– Low noise
Unlike many other portable air conditioners, the LG lets you set the actual temperature you want in the room — the display panel is easy to use and the LG comes with a user-friendly remote control.
Power: 8000 BTU
Rooms: up to 200 sq. ft.
If you live in a humid area (usually near water), you’ll love the built-in dehumidifier.
It’s able to remove up to remove 1.27 pints of air moisture per hour.
Dehumidifier: 30.5 pints daily (3.8 gal.)
Most newer portable air conditioners with built-in dehumidifiers max out 1-2 gallons per day.
When the water tank is full, there’s a “water full indicator” light which you’ll see on the AC panel.
And the best part is that this LG portable AC is extremely quiet.
Noise level (dBs): 53 decibels
Reading reviews, many buyers use it as a bedroom air conditioner — not only is it very quiet, but buyers also say it’s easy to install (using the window vent).
LG Portable Air Conditioner Review:
Below I created a chart of all 3 LG portable air conditioner models.
Each AC unit includes a 24-hr timer.
– You can set the timer and have it run at lower speed at night
– Set to automatically turn-off at 9:00am (in case you forget in the morning)

LG LP0818WNR Portable Air Conditioner:
The LG portable ACs is a good option for small to medium size rooms.
It is more expensive than similar BTU air conditioners, but it’s also designed with the newest technology.
Personally I think it’s the most energy efficient portable air conditioner — even at 8,000 BTU cooling, the low noise and high output is comparable to other 10,000 BTU air conditioners.
Another top rated feature is the built-in dehumidifier.
With the capacity to remove nearly 4-gallons of air moisture per day, it’s similar to some high-end dehumidifiers (without AC capability).
Comparable dehumidifiers can cost $200-300.
Finally, the LG portable air conditioner has mostly all positive reviews — only a few dozen buyers, but still worth noting.
