The 12,000 BTU LG LP1215GXR is your best choice for average-sized rooms. Like all portable air conditioners, it will struggle to cool down larger rooms, but it outperformed other models when asked to cool down a 250 square foot room in one comparative test. Noise levels are decent and the feature line up is good.
- Good cooling performance in smaller rooms
- Good features
- Warranty includes in-home service
- Poorer performance in larger rooms
- LG's customer service draws some complaints
