What do you do when you need to cool off efficiently? Consider a portable air conditioner. There are plenty of sizes and styles to choose from. Some even run on batteries and are small enough to slip into your pocket.
Some models you can clip to things. Others can stand up free on a desk or table.
There are many different styles and finishes for all tastes and budgets. You can even find counter-depth models, if you are the type who likes to have all surfaces be symmetrical!
Once you have determined what functions you will need and therefore what style you want, you need to decide on brand. You have a bevy of choices here as well. HotPoint, Sub Zero, Whirlpool, Maytag, GE, Samsung, Frigidaire, LG, and Avanti all make excellent models.
With a portable unit, you’ll feel as cool as if you had central air conditioning but without all the cost and expense of having to have ductwork installed.
The type you will get will depend on how long you will be staying. If you’ll be in that same apartment or home for a while, you can invest in the type that mounts to the wall or in a window via brackets. They aren’t hard to install either.
For extra oomph, choose the window unit. These not only cool the air going into the room but also pull warm air out. The negative is that you don’t have a great view out of that window any more.
You want a kitchen that is beautiful of course, but you also want to make sure that it functions well and meets your needs. If you do your research you’ll have a gourmet kitchen that your whole family can enjoy.
