Quilo Portable Air Conditioner Review.
If central HVAC cooling isn’t an option, a portable air conditioners might be the next best thing.
In the last few years, prices on portable ACs have dropped — they’re just as powerful as a window unit and much cheaper than a full HVAC system.
They’re also super durable and sometimes come w/ a dehumidifier or heater function too.

Quilo Air Conditioner Review:
The Quilo AC runs more efficiently compared to similar units.
There’s a few power sizes available, but the 14,000 BTU seems like the most popular.
Quilo portable air conditioners:
Quilo QP110WK: 10,000 BTU (450 sq. ft.)
Quilo QP112WK: 12,000 BTU (550 sq. ft.)
Quilo QP114WK: 14,000 BTU (700 sq. ft.)
For the 14,000 BTU model, buyers say it’s extremely quick.
Capacity: 550 ~ 700 sq. ft.
Another benefit is the built-in dehumidifier which removes up to 80 pints of moisture per 24-hrs. Great for anyone living near water, where humidity levels can rise quickly.
Below is a chart of the portable AC models:
|Quilo Portable AC||Cooling Power||Room Size||Portable AC Watts Needed||AC Dehumidifier|
|QP110||10,000 BTU||450 sq. ft.||880W||80 pints per day|
|QP112||12,000 BTU||550 sq. ft.||900W||86 pints per day|
|QP114||14,000 BTU||700 sq. ft.||1170W||112 pints per day|
Quilo also includes a 24-hour on/off timer, which monitors the temperature + controls it while you are away.
Schedule it to start before you get home from work, or when you plan on leaving the house!
It includes a remote control too — ideal for bedroom air conditioning.
The Quilo remote lets you set/change the room temperature or speed settings. You can also activate the dehumidifier or fan.
As a bedroom portable AC it’s very quiet at 45 decibels.
Installation is fairly simple too — you can do it yourself in 10-15 mins.
It comes 95% preassembled so it shouldn’t take be too much problem setting up.
However, you’ll need a window that’s at least 46-inches across to fit the hose.

What Buyers Think:
Quilo has lots of positive buyer reviews and was a top seller in 2018.
Buyers really love the remote control function — most portable air conditioners have it, but not w/ all the functions (i.e. the dehumidifier and exact temp control)
Overall, the Quilo portable air conditioners are a solid purchase.
Personally I think you can get a better model if buying the 10,000 or 12,000 BTU unit — but for cooling larger rooms up to 700 sq. ft., I think it’s the best option available.

The price for the 14,000 BTU (# QP114WK) is very affordable compared to similar power units.
And paired w/ the high-end dehumidifier, I consider it a good value purchase as well.
