One of the most important things that are considered when buying a portable air conditioner is whether the unit comes with a dehumidifier. Generally speaking, a portable air conditioner with a dehumidifier can do more than one without: as it is capable of helping you get rid of excess humidity (on top of cooling your space). And as we all know, there are situations where the excess humidity turns out to be even more troublesome than the excess heat. Thus, all other factors being constant, a portable air conditioner with a dehumidifier will always be regarded as being superior to one without.
Some of the best portable air conditioners with dehumidifiers in the market include:
Best mini split portable air conditioner with dehumidifier
The Garrison 1028237 Mini-Split Ductless Air Conditioner, 12K BTU White, has the ‘dehumidification mode’ as one of its operational modes: meaning that it is equipped with a dehumidifier. This air conditioning unit also comes with a washable filter, as well as remote control functionality that makes it possible for it to be operated from across the room. Aware of the drainage issues that owners of air conditioners often have to contend with, the designers of this system has set it up with 2-way drain piping: make it very convenient to use. The 2-way drain piping also makes the cooling action of this air conditioner faster. Also notable about this air conditioner is the fact that it comes with an inverter heat pump, which adjusts the unit’s output as needs change, enhancing your comfort and making it easy for you to save money you’d otherwise spent on power bills. At 12,000 BTU, it is certainly a reasonably powerful machine.
Best quiet portable air conditioner with dehumidifier
The Honeywell MN12CES 12,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner With Remote Control – Black/Silver has rather superb dehumidification capabilities: up to 79.2 pints per day. It is also one of those air conditioners that are capable of effectively cooling larger spaces – namely up to 450 square feet (depending on heat load, that can actually extend up to 600 square feet). This is possible thanks to the unit’s rather powerful air flow. The quiet manner in which this powerful air conditioner operates is another thing you are likely to find remarkable. With feater touch controls (on a LCD display) as well as a full-function remote control capability, you will find this air conditioner to be very convenient to use. And with this air conditioner unit, you don’t have to worry about issues to do with drainage: it is made using the modern ‘no-bucket’ design, which is possible through auto-evaporation capabilities.
Best free standing portable air conditioner with dehumidifier
The LG Electronics LP0814WNR 115-Volt portable air conditioner with remote control, 8000 BTU has a reasonably good dehumidifying capacity: of up to 2 pints per hour. Like all other LG-branded electronics and home appliances, it is a solid product, complete with LED display and a full-function remote control. It is also, remarkably, a genuinely free standing air conditioner: and one that is very easy to move across rooms (on various types of floor surfaces), thanks to the sturdy roll caster wheels. Unlike certain other air conditioners that require special power outlets, this particular system will just hook into your standard 115-Volt standard power outlet. Should power go off suddenly (perhaps in an outage), this air conditioner will simply pick up from where it left when power is restored: thanks to its auto-restart function, which stores/saves settings. With certain other air conditioners, you have to keep on redoing the settings whenever power is restored after an outage — and that can be tiresome. What we are looking at here is a vented air conditioner, with cooling capacity of up to 8,000 BTU – and which is capable of cooling up to some 200 square feet. This air conditioner also comes with a programmable timer and its sleek design is appealing to the eyes.
