Can you feel the temperature rising? We can, and no wonder you're desperately hunting for the best cheap portable conditioner deal. UK heat wave temperatures of 30°C (90°F) and above are forecast for the week. There is even an 'amber heat warning' in place until Friday and hot temperatures are likely to continue – or go away and then return – until the start of the school holidays in August, at which point it will immediately snow for 6 weeks.
In his hit record ‘Hot In Herre’ (sic) Nelly suggested that were it to get ‘hot in here’ you should ‘take off all your clothes’. Now while we don’t rule that out as a solution to the sweltering heat, sit conditioning is more practical for most of us. Especially if your property is overlooked.
Do not despair: this Amcor 7000 is on offer now and available for delivery. It is among the least sexy products on T3.com this month, but it might also be the most essential, for the coming hot weeks/months/decades.
• Buy Amcor 7000 from Appliances Direct for £349 – that's £20 off the normal price apparently, which is worrying as it was £40 off yesterday and £90 off when we launched this story last week. Wait until Thursday and you might be paying £400.
Buy this and you can bid adios to heat wave overheating misery. Yes, as temperatures soar and tempers fray, you'll be laughing; sipping iced cocktails and feeling the kind of cooling, conditioned air normally reserved for four star hotels.

Why you should buy the Amcor 7000 air conditioner
At a maximum 48dB this slimline air con is fairly quiet, and with 2.2kW of power and 7,000BTU it can cool a fair size room, at speed. A 24-hour timer means you can pre-cool while you're out, too.
Coming with a remote control and 12-month warranty, this machine is hardly the most gorgeous product ever, but you'll love how cool it makes your bedroom. Anyway, at just H 68 x W31 x D33cm and with wheels on the base, it's easy to hide away somewhere nobody will see it, until the temperatures get fierce again.
This unit has very good reviews on Revoo, which is a site that gets the public to review things, for no money, then sells the results.
If you have a room bigger than the 18 square metres this one is set up for, Appliances Direct can up-sell you to a 12,000 BTU Electriq air conditioner that can chill rooms of up to 30 square metres in size.
