Portable air conditioners’ energy efficiency is most commonly measured by its Energy Efficiency Ratio. This ratio takes into account the unit’s BTUs and power consumption (in wattages). For example, if a unit’s BTU rating is 14,000 and its wattage is 1,400, that portable air conditioner’s EER would be a flat 10.0. The higher the EER, the more energy efficient the unit will be. The Department of Energy recommends using a room air conditioner with an EER of 10.0 or above. Especially if you plan on using your portable air conditioner continuously, choosing a unit with a high EER can provide you with huge savings.
