Which air conditioner to buy

  1. Of the three presented mobile air conditioners, only Timberk AC TIM 09H P4 has heating mode. Therefore, if this function is critical, then the choice is obvious. But this air conditioner does not have a remote control and some useful functions (such as a timer). The other two models are more functional, but without heating. De'Longhi PAC AN110 is twice as expensive as Electrolux EACM-12EZ / N3, while the characteristics and 'prestige' of the brand are quite comparable. The only thing is that Electrolux has clearly increased noise.

  2. In the group of the best split-systems, Electric MSZ-LN25VG / MUZ-LN25VG is noticeably leading in all parameters Mitsubishi. But not the most pleasant side effect is the high price, which is not suitable for everyone. Comparable in functionality, but much cheaper model – Daikin ATX20K / ARX20K. Actually, only these two air conditioners have an online controller. Therefore, one of them will be the best choice for those who create with their own hands a kind of 'smart home'. Toshiba RAS-10SKVP2-E is a solid and reliable model with no frills at an affordable price, in which it is difficult to find pronounced disadvantages.

  3. Of the two described models for the bedroom, it is quite easy to make the best choice – the price is the guideline. Daikin FTXG20L is a premium class with all the advantages, LG S12PMG is a budget, but in general a good model that fully corresponds to the declared characteristics.

  4. Among the three inexpensive air conditioners, the Hyundai HSH-S121NBE stands out for its set of filters. If it is important to protect allergy sufferers as much as possible and, in general, create as healthy a microclimate as possible, this solution looks obvious. Two other models – Abion ASH-C066BE / ARH-C066BE and LG G09VHT (G09AHT) are quite comparable in price, only the system from LG, according to user reviews, is noticeably quieter, especially at night mode.
