Cool and Dry Functions

With the UGPAC-12002, you can switch between dry mode and cool mode depending on what you currently need to make your room comfortable. Unfamiliar with the terms? Simply put, Dry mode manages the humidity levels of the room and is typically indicated in settings by a water drop icon. Cool mode, on the other hand, is the typical mode of air conditioners, cooling the space by eliminating heat rather than moisture from the air.

When your air conditioner is in Dry mode, it isn’t actually releasing cold air. It may not feel much different than the cool setting on your air conditioner, however, the air you’re receiving in Dry mode is just dehumidified air. The effect is more noticeable in rooms with high humidity levels. You can use this mode during humid rainy days or during the cooler seasons to get the optimum cooling you desire without it becoming too cold to your liking

Strong Cooling Capacity

A strong cooling power is an important feature for an air conditioner, much more so for portable aircon units. Considering a portable aircon is smaller than your conventional aircon unit, they usually sacrifice cooling capacity for portability. However, with an efficient 1.5 horsepower and 12,000 BTUs, the UGPAC-12002 is almost on par with window-type units and can quickly cool a small living area or even a medium-sized bedroom.

Efficient To Use

Like most portable aircon units, the UGPAC-12002 can be easily installed and transported into any area in your home. You don’t have to pay for a professional technician for installation, unlike split-type and window-type aircon units. Due to its portability, you can use it during warmer months and store it away once the cooler months start. This allows you to control your usage, preventing your electricity bills from skyrocketing.
