As we enter the last month of summer, the temperature is heating up and the prices on fans, humidifiers and air conditioners are going down. For effective heat relief, the best portable air conditioners offer powerful cooling, while improving the air quality in your home… and now is the best time to buy a new one.

I know what you’re thinking: “If summer is coming to a close soon, why would I buy an air conditioner now?!” Well, there are many reasons why you might want to, with the first being that your current air cooling system isn’t performing its best anymore. Another reason is because retailers like Amazon and Best Buy are discounting a lot of its cooling products so it’s a good time to look for cheap air conditioner deals.

My flat is like a greenhouse so I’m in desperate need of a new cooling solution. My current fan set-up just isn’t cutting it for me, so I’ve been searching the sales for the latest deals on portable AC. Luckily, Amazon is currently slashing its prices on air conditioner units from Whynter, BLACK + DECKER and TOSOT.
