Haier HPC12XCR 12000BTU Portable Air Conditioner

Best Quiet Portable Air Conditioner

Why people love it
  • Unit works fantastically 
  • Cools room quickly 
  • Good quality and easy to install 



It’s not necessarily the most energy efficient machine and some people still feel it is too loud. 


There is a lot to like with this portable AC. It cools a fair amount of space and it does so quickly. Additionally, the setup is easy enough to get it going fast, though it is a little on the heavier side. It’s low-decibel operation and high capacity dehumidifier makes people fall in love with it.

Now, it is a single hose system, but you shouldn’t expect to empty the water reservoir constantly. Sadly, it doesn’t offer a sleep mode, but there is a 24-hour sleep timer and the remote (although basic in appearance) does offer full functionality. Indeed, this is one snappy little machine and a great option for those living in apartments without built-in air conditioning. Get it while it’s on sale and you won’t be disappointed.
