Ultra Compact 8,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner and Dehumidifier
Description & Highlights
EdgeStar 8,000 BTU Ultra Compact Portable Air Conditioner - White
The AP8000W is equipped with 8,000 BTUs of cooling power and can effectively cool a room from 150 square feet to 250 square feet in size, which is roughly 15’ x 17’. This compact, yet powerful portable air conditioner is perfect for cooling bedrooms. The AP8000W doubles as a 50 pint dehumidifier, which removes excess moisture from the air helping the space feel even cooler and improving air quality.
How to Install
- Step 1: Place window kit plate into window opening.
- Step 2: Slide plate to cover the width of the opening.
- Step 3: Close window to hold plate in place.
- Step 4: Attach exhaust hose to the unit.
- Step 5: Place the other end of the exhaust hose into the hole on the window plate.
To easily vent the portable air conditioner, the AP8000W includes a window kit that can conveniently be fitted in windows that are 28 1/2" - 56" in size. For larger windows or use in sliding glass doors, purchase the APPK2010 kit which expands up to 83”. Window kits for portable air conditioners take up much less space than installing a window air conditioner, which means you don't have to worry about blocking the light or view from your window.
Built with an automatic drain system that is able to exhaust all liquid formed by condensation so that there is no need to manually drain the unit in most climates.
The intelligent design auto restart function stores your selected settings so that in the event of a power failure the unit will restart just as before when the electricity comes back on.

Condensate is expelled from the unit through the hose, but in more humid climates where moisture is more prevalent, the excess moisture can be drained through the drain in the back of the unit.
For spaces where window air units are not allowed, portable air conditioners are a great alternative as they do not protrude from the outside, allowing them to comply with building codes and HOA’s.
As long as there is a place to vent the hot air and a standard electrical outlet available, portable air conditioners can be used wherever and whenever needed and easily moved or stored when not in use.
Instead of turning down your central A/C unit for that one room that is always a few degrees hotter than the rest, Portable ACs can be an efficient way to cool hot spots in your home without sacrificing your electricity bill.
Easy to connect and operate, portable air conditioners can be used wherever and whenever needed and easily moved or stored when not in use.
