Hi,

I'm after a reasonable, portable air conditioner. It's a bit of a minefield, with many claiming to be quiet and user reports claiming they aren't.
It doesn't need to be mega power, as it's only for a bedroom, has anyone got a good recommendation? Looking to spend around £300.

I suggest running a dehumidifier during the day then noise will not be an issue.

A dehumidifier does not need to operate 24/7 - unless there is a constant source of moisture which will be unlikely in a bedroom.

I have a couple of dehumidifiers - one I bought new from Aldi and the other secondhand from ebay - both are refrigerant types and very effective - but I would say are too loud to have on overnight. I'd buy one which has a humidistat so that it switches itself off once the required dryness is achieved.


No really a reply to the question!

How you going to vent? Can you vent? Ceiling fan maybe better. When real hot get a hot water bottle and fill with cold water. Sleep on top in buff

Think I seen some small air conditioning units at homebase for around £100? Its venting them out that's a problem

if you are any where near a john lewis, they often have them running for you to test them before you buy. i think the good ones are very expensive though. i don't think you will get good ones for £300 but i may be wrong.

Venting not a problem, will go out the window with a blocking screen around it.
Thanks for advice. Good idea mutley, will report back with an outcome.

many years ago i looked at air conditioning unit for home and i went into john lewis in oxford circus in london. they had a tower air conditioning fan. it was really great and i stood in front of it and did not want to leave without it. it was really quiet but if i remember correctly, it was something like £600 or £900.

If you freeze a bottle of water and put it in front of a fan it will blow some cool air around.

I've tried plenty sub 300 ones. They are all very very loud despite some reviews saying that they are quiet.

Only solution for us was to leave aircon on an hour before bedtime and then turn it off when we went to bed. A true silent one would cost closer to a thousand and have to be mounted outside.

We have one like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/192185733331 in our bedroom have had it for over 3 years now. No it's not whisper quiet but it's never stopped us sleeping from the fan noise in fact it's feels strange when it's not on. But I would rather have a background hum and be cool and get a good night's sleep than not being able to sleep because of the heat.

2 x 2ltr bottles of water in the freezer. Bring them our at night in front of a fan. Surprisingly affective, and cheap.

If you look for a unit that is lower than 70db as that is about as loud as a vacuum cleaner, I used to work hiring air con units and to buy a decent one that will last a few years then your looking at around £600
#13


that is a Evaporative cooler and works a lot differently than an air con unit, and also smells after a while as the filter holds stale water, also wouldn't recommend evap coolers as legionella risk if the water is not changed proactively

homebase had some for £139 the other day , dont know detail
#16
What about one of the dyson fans?

Then leave your. Floor soaking when it melts and the condensation goes wild!

I spent ages looking for one too a few summers ago when it was really hot , my bedroom is located where the sun hits it for most of the day , especially at its peak and it used to get unbearable

Air conditioning is so expensive , to purchase and to run so I looked at a few cheaper options and decided with getting a UV filter for my window which gives it a slight tint (can hardly tell from the outside ) a Westinghouse ceiling fan , a dehumidifier and a Honeywell timer fan I have next to my bed for when I'm trying to sleep

Also experimenting with the airflow in your house can work a charm , opening certain windows and doors and creating good airflow can help depending on the layout of your house

I'm thinking about the practicalities though and am getting an air conditioning company out to do a semi decent one. Probably go with a Mitsubishi Electric or Daikin. Looking around £1k for one room or £1.5k for two rooms. I am wondering whether I could get away with just one mounted in the landing aimed at the two bedrooms or if this will just be too inefficient... Think it may be
