We researched the top 10 energy efficiency portable air conditioners and settled on five of the most recent models to research and test side-by-side in lab and home environments. With so many things to consider when purchasing a new air conditioner, such as size, capacity, and noise level, we took into account whether each appliance was portable, as well as energy efficiency ratings. We score and rank these devices based on our testing results, which means that the best energy efficient portable air conditioner should not be the most expensive. We strongly believe that taking all of these factors into account, along with an awareness of your budget and space requirements, will make the purchasing process easier for you.

Many households use portable air conditioners, and these appliances are often the difference between a comfortable and uncomfortable home. When shopping for a air conditioner, it's important to consider your home's size and the condition it is in as there are a number of different indoor air quality issues that may cause discomfort.
