Dowell Portable Aircon PA-412K20 1.5HP Review

Share

While nothing beats an aircon-chilled room during hot summer days where the weather is just too much to handle, you really don’t want to relax in a space that’s filled with pollutants and other irritants. Most high-end air conditioners come with filters that allow you to enjoy both clean and cold air, but what about portable air conditioners? Given that they’re smaller, wouldn’t that make them less efficient in terms of providing clean air?

Not necessarily. Take the Dowell Portable Aircon PA-412K20 1.5HP for example. Packed with high-performance functions, this unit has all the things you need and want in a portable aircon unit. Read below for more details.

Dowell Portable Aircon PA-412K20 1.5HP Review Features

From a simple yet pristine design to its portability, the Dowell Portable Aircon PA-412K20 1.5HP Air Conditioner has all the features you need to have that comfortable environment to work or relax in. These functions include:

Excellent Air Quality

What use is a cool room when you can barely last a minute before sneezing? Filters are an important feature of an aircon as it continuously filters out all the dirt floating around in your room. However, replacing these filters every now and then can be expensive in the long run. Units with filters that have to be removed by a professional aren’t ideal as well, considering you’ll need to clean the filter at least once a week.

If you’re worried about mold that can potentially grow in a low-temperature environment, the PA-412K20 will be the ideal aircon unit for you. Built with washable filters you can clean every now and then and a floater sensor, the unit prevents mold and mildew build-up. This leaves you with fresher air that’s free from allergens.

Strong Cooling Capacity

Portable aircon units have a reputation for providing less cool air compared to split-type or window-type units, and for most models, this could be true. The PA-412K20, however, comes with a powerful 1.5 horsepower and 12,000 BTUs. This makes it strong enough to cool a 12 sqm room.

The unit also comes with 4 modes, which are cool, dry, fan, and auto. This lets you choose how strong you want the cooling power to be. If the temperature is somewhat warm outside, you can put the unit in dry fan mode. If it’s too unbearably hot, you can simply crank it up to cool mode.

Energy Efficient

A portable aircon unit with excellent cooling power and great air quality is definitely a great find. However, all this can be marred by the unit’s power consumption. Paying twice or even thrice your power consumption just for one appliance can be too much, after all. With an EER of 13, the PA-412K20 can provide both features without being too heavy on your electricity bills.

Its 24-hour shut-off timer automatically turns off the unit depending on your desired time, which means you can set the timer before sleeping and have the unit turn itself off come morning.
