The Best Stand Alone AC to Keep You Cool This Summer (2021 comparison)

The Best Stand alone ac to Keep You Cool This Summer

Did you feel hot last summer? Not only you but I would imagine the majority of the 52% of current employees working from home were all in the same boat. Small, compact home offices emulating that of a spa’s sauna. Little air circulation to which is more important now than ever before in this current national pandemic.

This year I am prepared and have invested in the best stand alone ac to keep me cool, comfortable and well equipped to tackle those record breaking temperatures we are sure to receive this year. According to Copernicus (the European Union’s Earth observation programme for planet and environment) on 2020, Europe saw the warmest year on record amassing the previous record set in 2019 marking the end of the warmest decade on record. This year doesn’t seem to be holding back either with heat waves expected from as early as May setting us up for a summer scorcher.

2020, Europe saw the warmest year

Something I have asked myself in previous year was, is it worth buying a portable air conditioner? Year after year suffering the sleepless nights tossing and turning trying to find the cold side of the pillow and now working from home in my small back room office, I finally bit the bullet and invested in my portable ac air conditioner. Don’t get me wrong my portable friend set me back a few hundred pounds but what price do you put on your comfort and health?

The best stand alone ac I found was the Morris 9000BTU Air Conditioning Unit with Dehumidifier. I can control it on the smart app so when I am out and about, I can set my room to a temperature that is comfortable for me and if the temperature increases the ac air conditioner will automatically turn itself on to bring the temperature back down.

With this portable ac solution, I avoid the air conditioner installation cost and the damages in my property!

Portable air conditioner and dehumidifier?

Not only was 2020 Europe’s warmest year on record, within that year Winter 2020 exceeded the warmest of 2016 by 1.4° according to Copernicus. This is one of the reasons I opted for the superior advantage of not only having a portable ac unit for the summer but also a 24 litre dehumidifier for usage all year round. The Morris air con unit accommodates both of these functions so when those muggy, humid nights hit this stand alone ac will also reduce the potential build up of condensation which is the major contributing factor for mould and damp issues. This will also provide a clean flow of air which is paramount during the covid pandemic. The more we can increase the flow of air the better.

It was a no brainer for me to purchase a unit which does both. I can now use the stand alone ac for providing a comfortable home environment in the summer and the built in Morris 24 litre Dehumidifier in the winter to maintain a healthy humidity which prevents the build up of mould and allergens keeping not only me but my young family safe!

What portable air conditioner should I buy?

The size of your property

The best stand alone ac units are rated in British Thermal Units (BTU). The larger your room, the higher the BTU needs to be. My Morris 9000BTU Portable AC cools rooms up to 20m2.The smooth-gliding wheels and convenient top handles can help me to move the unit from room to room with ease when needed.

The noise level

When you are considering which portable air conditioner to buy, I would highly recommend checking out the level of volume the machine outputs. The last thing you want is for the air conditioning unit to wake you up through the night after you thought you had conquered those sleepless nights! Again, I opted for the Morris slim air conditioner unit as it only produces a quiet 56 Decibels which is even superior to some of the Delonghi Silent PAC range.

Portable Air conditioning Comparison

I have compared my Morris 9000BTU Air Conditioning unit to equivalent products produced by various brands which I found online. You can make your own mind up then as to which is the best stand alone ac for you. I have chosen mine and what a great decision it was!
