The LG Portable Air Conditioner Review 2019

LG Portable AC Review

LG LP818WNR 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

LG Portable AC units are offered in multiple sizes.

AC Size Range: 8,000 – 14,000 BTU cooling.

Today I’ll be reviewing one of LG’s newer portable air conditioners.

Offered in 3 sizes, the LG LP0818WNR is the most popular on Amazon.

For this review I’ll refer to the LP0818WNR model — at the bottom I included a chart comparing all 3 AC sizes.

LG LP0818WNR Review:

As one of the newer ACs, the LG LP0818WNR portable air conditioner offers some 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).

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.
