Air conditioning is something that you just can’t live without, especially when it gets hot and humid in the summers and the air gets too heavy to breathe in. However, air conditioning can also be very expensive so you really have to consider a few things before you install an air conditioner or even use the air conditioning available to you.

If you live in an apartment complex with small studio apartments, you probably don’t need a lot of cooling power to get the job done and you might not be allowed to install an air conditioner of your own. The air conditioning system available to you might cost a little too much to use as well. If you’re faced with such a predicament, it’s a good idea to buy a portable stand up air conditioner.

These air conditioning units are small and very energy efficient to use. They pack everything they need in one little unit, making them easy to handle and there’s no need to install anything – all you really have to do is to make sure that the exhaust pipe is pointed outwards. In the long run, these things save you a lot of money since they need only a fraction of the power a regular AC unit needs to cool up a place and they aren’t even very expensive to buy.

Before we’re done mentioning the benefits of these portable AC units, it’s worth mentioning that these are also the only way you can go camping and have air conditioning the whole time as well. Before you buy one of your own, it’s a good idea to read a review or two at Closeup Check about standing ACs just so you know which one suits your needs the best.
