UK ElectrIQ P12HPW Review.
The new ElectrIQ 12000 BTU portable air conditioner is mobile app controlled + includes a heater.
It features 3 modes of operation:
air conditioning, heater, dehumidifier (and fan mode)
Compared to similar models, it has a higher price tag, but includes a powerful AC motor + Sleep/Eco mode options.
ElectrIQ 12000 BTU Portable AC Review:
Personally I like the 12000 BTU size because of its versatility.
It’s the perfect size for heating or cooling medium size rooms up to 30 square metres.
AC Power: 12000 BTU
Heating: 11000 BTU
Rooms: 26 – 30 sq. metres
The ElectrIQ P12HPW is a little more expensive, but comes with new high-end features ~ the favorite among buyers are the mobile app settings.
For a 12000 BTU portable air conditioner, the ElectriQ is one of the few that is considered a smart home ac unit.
electriQ 12000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner:
As a 12000 BTU unit, it’s perfect for mid-sized rooms up to 30 sq. metres.
The biggest difference is the smart home feature for mobile app control + voice commands.
Mobile app functions:
- turn on/off remotely
- switch operation mode
- (ac, fan or dehumidifier)
- adjust room temperature
- increase/decrease power
- (ac, fan or dehumidifier)
Once connected to your WiFi, the Alexa voice commands make it easy to use around the house — one buyer uses in the kitchen and uses voice commands while baking!
The built-in dehumidifier is more powerful than similar 12,000 BTU models.
Dehumidifier: 31.2 liters (daily)
As a WiFi Portable Air Conditioner, the remote control + mobile app are easy to use.
You can easily change temp, switch to dehumidify mode or adjust fan speeds.
If using as a bedroom air conditioner, sleep mode will keep the ac noise below 56 dB.
Buyers like using the 24-timer in the morning. It’s useful in case you forget to turn it off before you leave — or you can turn off with the mobile app!
Assembly is super easy and takes only 5-10 mins.
24-hr timer, sleep mode, washable air filters

ElectriQ Portable Air Conditioner Review
Due to its cooling and heating functionality, it has received mostly positive reviews.
Very few portable units offer a heating functionality which is useful in the winter — many buyers like it as a secondary heat source (which helps decrease the energy costs on a larger unit).
Other added benefits include:
dehumidifier, multiple fan speeds, digital control panel, and sleep mode (for quiet operation)
For those seeking to cool large rooms, the electriQ 14000 BTU might also be worth considering.
