Due to their convenience and the ability to store the unit away when the temperature drops, choosing to ignore the benefits that a wall mounted or split air conditioner can offer for a similar price.
Portable vs Wall Mounted
Portable air conditioners are an all in one solution that can be used to cool every room around the home and are a great solution for many homes. Due to them being an all in one solution, portable units need to have a hose attached to the back of the unit that is vented out of the window to expel the heat drawn out of the room.
The internal condenser in the portable unit can make them rather loud. Budget portable units start from around £295 and, in the average setting, can run at around 70db. That is equivalent to the noise you might hear in a car travelling at 60mph. To get a unit that is quiet enough for you to be able to sleep will often set you back closer to £700.
Wall Mounted air conditioning units are made of two parts. The external condenser and the internal unit that draws air in from the room and expels the cool air back. As the condenser is mounted externally, usually on the side of the house, the only noise you hear is from the internal unit which often runs at comfortable level with an electronic hum that makes it much easier to sleep with.
Wall Mounted Air Conditioning units start from around £500 so if the volume is important to you, Wall Mounted units win every time.
Features of a Split Unit
The vast majority of split units offer cooling & heating in one unit, allowing you to make use of them all year round. This feature is not available on most portable air conditioning units and where it is featured this can often be for double the price of a budget unit.
Due to the fact that split units are often installed in difficult to reach spots on the wall to allow for optimum cooling/heating performance, it’s essential that these units come supplied with simple to use remote controls. Many manufacturers have taken the further step to allow them to connect these units to Wi-Fi for you to easily control them with your phone or smart home assistant. This allows for complete control. If it is the summer and you’re about to leave the office, use your smart phone to turn on the unit before you leave and have the room perfectly cooled before you return. Many of these units run through Tuya, which can be easily connected to Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.
If you are looking for an energy efficient, quiet and effective way to cool or heat your bedroom, a Wall Mounted Air Conditioning Unit is the perfect solution.
