Dowell PA-19K20 Aircon Review


Living in the Philippines means that you’re going to have to contend with high temperatures and humidity. Tropical weather isn’t the coolest, and with monsoon rains and variable weather patterns, a lot of Filipinos definitely prefer a more stable, comfortable temperature. That’s a big reason why Filipino consumers opt for cooling options that they can control. Add in convenience and portability, and you have a great excuse for looking at the Dowell PA-19K20 portable air conditioner.

Why do people choose portable? Thinking about air conditioners usually calls to mind the reliability of a window-type unit, or the quieter operation of a split type. Portable isn’t always the Filipino’s first choice, and in fact, not a lot of brands or distributors carry portable aircon units at all. So why choose portable? We’ll attempt to explain the benefits of going portable and why more and more Filipinos are choosing this as their cooling option in this Dowell portable aircon review today.

But that’s just the surface level. Read on and find a ton of other features that make the Dowell PA-19K20 your best choice for powerful, portable cooling.

Benefits of the Dowell PA-19K20

Power Cool

If there’s one thing that sets the Dowell PA-19K20 apart from its competitors, it’s its cooling power. One downside is that many portable aircons struggle with their cooling capacity. While portable aircons are convenient and compact, that also means that they might not be able to cool quite as powerfully as window or split-type aircons.

The PA-19K20 does away with all of those worries with its whopping 19000 BTU/h and 2.0 HP cooling capacity. Performing just as powerfully as a wall-mounted aircon, it can cool your room faster and more completely.

With a wattage of 2150 W, the PA-19K20’s energy efficiency ratio (EER) comes in at around 8.8, which unfortunately means that it’s not the most energy-efficient unit out there. However, you can maximize its efficiency by ensuring that its air path is clear of obstacles and that there are no major heat sources or leaks in the room.

Multiple Modes

While portable aircon units may not have as many features as wall-mounted units, they still offer a range of options for a personalized cooling experience. It has a sleep-wind pattern, which means that you don’t have to worry about a noisy unit when you’re ready to go to bed.

The Dowell PA-19K20 also comes with four different modes so that you can get the comfort you want, how you want it. These modes are Cool, Dry, Fan, and Auto. The Dry is an especially important feature for when you need to dehumidify your area, especially during the rainy season.

Easy Maintenance

Portable aircons are always kept inside the house, so you may be wondering about things like condensation and dripping. The PA-19K20 makes this quick and convenient by coming with a floater sensor, which can tell when your drain pan needs to be emptied. This ensures that it never overflows. It’s also got an easy-to-clean, washable pre-filter that makes routine maintenance simple and cuts down on costs.

Under Control

Curious about how you can manage your Dowell aircon? The PA-19K20 comes with a LED digital display and an array of buttons that you can use to adjust your settings to your liking. Too far from the unit? You can use the included remote control to set your aircon to cool the way you like it. It also comes with a 24-hour auto shut-off timer, which means that you won’t be wasting energy if you forget to turn it off for today.
