About this deal

All portable air conditioners – this one included – come with a pile of ugly accessories comprising a concertina tube and various window kits through which the hot air coming out of the back must be ported. My very first impression of the MeacoCool MC Series 7000BTU Portable Air Conditioner was that the box was much easier to lift than most of the other portable air conditioning units I've tested, a testament to how lightweight this unit is.

Given how hot it was outdoors, our room never reached 16C, but it did fall from an unbearable 32C to 25C in just 35 minutes. The duct pipe is more flexible than it appears and can be extended outwards with all the parts to a length of 1.

New range of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries SRK-ZTL Premium Plus wall mounted air conditioning units, some with inbuilt wi-fi technology. I used a sound-monitoring app on my phone to record how loud the MeacoCool MC Series 7000BTU Portable Air Conditioner was, and whilst I can't vouch for the reliability of the app, when positioned one metre away from the unit I measured 52dB noise levels whilst operating the unit in Cool Mode on the Low speed setting. In fact, at approximately 25kg gross weight and just 20kgs net weight (approximately the weight of two large watermelons or four bowling balls! You can use the same drainage hose that you’d use on Dry Mode to empty this, which may be necessary on very humid days. The power cable isn’t super long, which can be an issue if your window isn’t located a metre away from the plug point, but it’s easy to extend the hose to a suitable length to compensate.

The Meaco range has an Energy Rating of A, meaning you can run them without worrying about the effect on your bills, and they have also reduced the running noise, giving you a quieter air conditioning unit to see you through the warmer months.

The remote control allows you to change the settings without having to get up to the unit, while a window kit makes the cooling more efficient. Creating the vent is a matter of twisting the various pieces together, placing into a sliding window and filling the gap with the plates and tape provided. Like most air conditioning units, running the MeacoCool MC Series 7000BTU Portable Air Conditioner does mean you'll have to put up with some background noise. The MC Series 12000 BTU portable air conditioner is operated through the control panel on the top of the unit as well as an accompanying remote, which both have similar buttons. You do this by removing the two filters at the rear of the unit and then using a hoover to clean both sides.

By carefully evaluating these considerations, you can choose an air conditioning system that not only cools your space effectively but also aligns with your preferences for efficiency, convenience, and long-term reliability. Basic physics dictates that portable air conditioners must be quite large, a bit noisy and not the prettiest appliances to have in the household.Before you get to the unit, there’s a couple of tubes in various sizes (that will become the duct and drainage hose), the parts to create a window seal and some daunting looking plastic shelving-like plates.
