DeLonghi Portable Air Conditioner


While there certainly isn’t anything wrong with the old school, oscillating fan on a stand to keep your summer digs cool, there’s certainly something right about a portable air conditioner that packs some serious style factor – plus so much more. The DeLonghi Portable Air Conditioner more than fits the bill with a sleek, sophisticated design in a polished silver that will compliment just about any décor in your house. It features 11,000-BTU capacity to put the chill on blast during steamy summer days, yet flips to double-duty with a 60-pint dehumidifier to keep air cool and comfortable well into winter months.

If that’s not enough, the air conditioner also boasts a 3M Filtrete air filter (specifically designed to attract and collect pollen, dust, etc.) to not just keep temperatures at bay but purify the air you breathe as well. Designed and engineered in notoriously fashionable Italy, the unit features a variety of clever design details, from a slick electronic control panel that features soft-touch keys and an LED display, to a 24-hour programmable timer that can be set to beat the heat before you hit your favorite chair.

Three different fan modes (boost, sleep and smart) plus motorized air-distribution louvers and adjustable humidistat further add to the control, giving gadget guys (and girls) one smart, sophisticated cooling, humidifying and purifying solution in a single, fashionable box. In addition, it has high-efficiency internal components and compression technology for peacefully quiet operation. One click and you’ll barely notice it’s running – quite a difference from traditional air conditioners and fans.

What’s particularly interesting is the built-in pump system, which draws the humidifier’s condensed water up and out the window through a tiny hose, eliminating the need to empty any buckets or compartments. At roughly 90 lbs and measuring 16-1/7 by 19 ½ by 37 inches, it can be carried and stowed easily, or conveniently wheeled around your home or office on its solid, well made wheels. If this isn’t enough, it’s designed to run energy efficient and of course, features an LCD remote control so that you can chill without having to get up from bed or your favorite recliner. At $750, it certainly isn’t inexpensive, but for the price, it gives powerful air conditioning plus so much more. You can pick up the DeLonghi PAC T110P Pinguino All-in-One A/C at Amazon.com.
