The records do not lie, it is being one of the hottest summers of the last decade. To this we must add that the current health situation requires us, to a greater or lesser extent, to stay indoors to avoid possible infections. With the heat wave over our heads, the air conditioning is the best companion for adventures if we are going to stay much of the day at home. Unfortunately, the cost of this type of apparatus makes them not accessible to a large number of people. Or so it was until now, as we have compiled a couple of offers with the air conditioning model that we can buy to overcome the heat wave.
Cheap portable air conditioning: 5 options for less than 200 euros
If we are looking for an air conditioning with installation …
Let’s not fool ourselves, finding cheap air conditioning models that require installation is quite complicated. On more than one occasion, the installation of the device itself involves a greater outlay of what the apparatus itself implies. Therefore, the simplest solution is to find a professional with cheap rates and who also allows us to buy the device from external distributors.
If we opt for this type of apparatus, this Worten model is sold at the time of writing these lines for only 244 euros. It is a Becken model, specifically the BAC4200. The apparatus is capable of cooling an area of 22 square meters, with an average BTU of 12,000. Likewise, its cooling and heating capacity is 2,753 and 3,011 fridges respectively. Although the most interesting thing about this model is its energy efficiency: A +++ for heating and A ++ for cooling.
For the rest, the air has a Turbo mode and a Sleep mode that allows us to adapt the power according to our preferences. Unfortunately, it does not have a filter or air purifier, something that other more expensive models do incorporate.
And what about the installation? If we choose the store itself to install the appliance in our home, the prices that the company manages are as follows:
- Installation of air conditioning with basic 3 meter split: 230 euros.
- Uninstallation of air conditioning with removal of old: 70 euros.
- Installation of air conditioning with 4 meter split: 300 euros.
If we add the rates together with the base price of the device, the prices are set as follows:
- Installation of air conditioning with basic 3 meter split: 474 euros.
- Uninstallation of air conditioning with removal of old: 314 euros (plus the price of the installation according to split).
- Installation of air conditioning with 4 meter split: 544 euros.
And if we opt for a portable air conditioner
Another much cheaper, versatile and recommended option are portable air conditioners. At Leroy Merlin we can find this EQUATION brand air conditioner for 170 euros. Of course, its characteristics are significantly lower than those of the previous model, with a maximum cooling area of 10 square meters and a power of 1,200 frigogories. It does not have a heating function, so we will not be able to use it in summer.
If we look for a model more similar to the Becken air device, this other Comfee model sold in LIDL is much more powerful than the EQUATION model. It has an area of 25 square meters, as well as a cooling capacity of 1,750 fridges and 7,000 BTUs on average.
