Portable Air Conditioner Accessories for Filtering Air & Venting Properly
To ensure you're getting the most out of your portable air conditioner, it's wise to be sure you have all of the essential accessories. Portable air conditioner vent kits and hoses allow you to set up your unit to vent through a ceiling, window, or sliding glass door, whichever is most convenient for you. Window vent kits are the most popular venting solution for apartment and home use of a portable air conditioner. If you don’t have a conventional window but do have a sliding glass door in the area you’d like to cool, a sliding glass door vent kit is your best venting option. These kits work just like traditional window vent kits but are larger in size and are applied vertically rather than horizontally. Sliding door vent kids, because of their size, can also be used for large windows.
Portable air conditioner filter refills are necessary for ensuring only clean air is being circulated through the room. Many portable air conditioners come standard with a carbon filter, which works to remove smoke and unpleasant odors from your surroundings. These filters need to be replaced every 3 months, so purchasing a 5 pack of replacements is a smart investment. There are other supplemental antimicrobial filters that enhance the efficiency of your unit as well as purify your surrounding air.
Other portable air conditioner accessories, such as a remote controls and window locks, make a portable air conditioner easier and safer to operate.
