I bought an Costco Danby 12,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner for $289. I will be unboxing and reviewing this unit. There are similar 12,000 BTU window air conditioners online: ( https://amzn.to/379Dei6 ) I also bought the Costco De’Longhi Portable Air Conditioner ( https://amzn.to/31ezWtWp ) for $469 and a Toshiba 10,000 btu air conditioner. There are similar Portable Air Conditioners online .

I helped my land lord replace a broken 10 year old window ac unit only to get another one. If you want to get air conditioner and you either rent or have a small room to cool down a portable or a window based air conditioner is the simple solution.
I later helped him putting the AC unit into the wall and took about 8 hours to complete. Window air conditioner is relatively simple:Just unpack and mount. My Land lord wanted to embed and mount it to a wall, which required the to be to be framed. I will save that footage for another video. Dont do the wall mount at home.
Portable Air Conditioner:
Floor unit with wheels and about 12,000 BTU. Easy to install.
- its very simple and easy to setup took me about 15 minutes to setup
- Its on wheels so you can have it in other room or for storage.
- They are relatively quiet and refined.
- Can work on vertical or horizontal windows.
- May have heating and dehumidfying abilities for year round use.
- You need an window to exhaust out the hot air
- You need an power outlet close to the window
- It takes up floor space
- Pricier than window units
Window Air Conditioners:
The window air conditioner took about 30 min to hour to place on the window and mount the hanging screw and side panels. The hard part is prepping and cleaning the window prior to mounting it.
- Pretty simple to setup – secures to the window.
- Saves floor space. Some people install them onto the wall to save even more space
- Lower cost than a portable or a larger home install.
- Lasts for years… my last window a/c unit lasted 8-10 years before the fan went out.
- Need to have a vertical opening window
- Sticks out the window
- For off season, may need to remove and store.
Comparing Toshiba with the Danby, the front design of the Toshiba looks better, however cost is 100 dollars more. Overall both perform well and could share the same remote IR control.
