Getting an air conditioner might be very necessary especially if you live in a region where the air is not as cool as you\u2019d like it to be, or is just not as clean as you\u2019re used to. The LG LP1217GSR air conditioner is a perfect example of a solution that you could use to improve the air quality in a specific room, and since it\u2019s got rollers underneath, you\u2019ll be able to move it around without much of a fuss. It\u2019s probably the best portable air conditioner for a room that\u2019s not larger than 200 square feet, so if you place it in a room that\u2019s larger than that, you might struggle to feel it\u2019s effect. If you\u2019re searching for the best portable air conditioner and heater, you\u2019ll have to leave this one out of your search as it doesn\u2019t come with any heating element.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - LG LP1217GSR\r\nAt a noise level of only 54 decibels, the LG LP1217GSR portable air conditioner guarantees quiet operation, making sure your sleep stays undisrupted throughout the night. The conditioner is also backed by a 1 year manufacturer\u2019s warranty, and comes with a sleek remote control for convenient operation.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe 8000 BTU portable air conditioner has a maximum allowable airflow of up to 250 cubic feet per minute, making it only slightly less effective than the Whynter ARC-14S 14,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner, which has an airflow efficiency of 253 cubic feet per minute. The air conditioner is also able to remove up to 1.8 pints of moisture from the air per hour, so you\u2019ll find it pretty useful if your air tends to have a lot of humidity.\r\nEnergy Efficiency\r\nDue to its small size, the LP1217GSR LG portable air conditioner isn\u2019t likely to cause a very huge jump in your electricity bill. Most of its users note an increment in their electricity bill that\u2019s within the region of $100, but if you use it with its energy saver mode on, your bill shouldn\u2019t rise as much. It\u2019s got 2 fan speeds to choose from, though if it had 3 like the Black + Decker BPACT08WT Portable Air Conditioner or the LG LP1419IVSM, we would have been a little more satisfied.\r\nFiltration\r\nThe LG LP1217GSR air conditioner comes with a washable air filter, so you will be able to easily take it out and put it back in after washing. The filter helps prevent any harmful particles from the air from getting inside the air conditioner, keeping it clean and making sure that it lasts a long term of use.\r\nDurability\r\nThis 12000 BTU air conditioner from LG is backed by 1 year manufacturer\u2019s warranty just like the ARC-14SH whynter portable air conditioner is, and the warranty covers both parts and labour, so incase you have any problems with it during your first year of use, feel free to reach out to LG\u2019s customer service team and they\u2019ll be glad to assist.\r\nValue\r\nIf you\u2019re not too keen on having to approach the LG air conditioner every time you want to make a change to its settings or adjust something, you\u2019ll be pleased to find out that it comes with a remote control that basically reflects the unit\u2019s settings from across the room, so you\u2019ll always have an idea of what settings are in play. The LCD remote allows you to switch between cool mode and dehumidifier mode, as well as its two fan speeds.\r\nLG LP1217GSR Wrap Up\r\nUnlike most air conditioners, the LG LP1217GSR will not need an external bucket to collect water, and this design is possible thanks to the auto evaporation system that it's built in. It also comes with a sleek installation kit so that you\u2019re able to properly fit it\u2019s exhaust hose on your window.
