Portable AC for small room (150 square feet)
One of the most well-liked portable air conditioners for a small room of about 150 square feet, the 8,000-BTU MobilComfort KY-80 is also one of the least expensive. Some owners complain that the exhaust hose attachment is a complicated affair, but the majority of reviewers say assembly and setup is simple and fast. We found abundant praise regarding the compactness of this portable air conditioner, which is slim enough to fit into tighter spaces than most portable units. Many say the KY-80 is relatively quiet, although a number of reviews complain that the fan runs continuously. Some say the built-in reservoir fills up too fast with condensed water and overflows, but others report no problems. At the end of the day, however, the MobilComfort KY-80 shines where it matters most -- its ability to cool a room.
