As a 3-in-1 portable air conditioner, you can choose from the following modes:
air conditioning, dehumidifier, or fan mode
What’s surprising is how affordable they are — compared to similar BTU units, the Emerson portable ACs are 10-25% cheaper.
For my review I’ll refer to the EAPC8RD1 (8000 BTU) portable unit.
Emerson Quiet Kool EAPC8RD1 Review:
As a 8,000 BTU portable air conditioner, the Emerson EAPC8RD1 is perfect for smaller rooms.
Reading reviews it appears many buyers like it as a bedroom AC.
Coverage: 300 square feet
Room size: 15 x 20 ft.
Noise Level (dB): < 52 decibels
(I’m using info found on Emerson’s website since some 3rd party descriptions are inaccurate)
All models include a remote control and let you set your desired room temperature.
It’s not a LCD remote control, but the AC itself shows a readout of your desired temp — simply increase or decrease until you see the temp you want.
Temperature: 62°F – 86°F
FYI — most portable ACs have a remote control, but only allow you to increase/decrease speeds.
Buyers really like the Emerson AC’s user-friendly controls and simple functionality.
It’s very uncomplicated for non-techy folks!
And for those living in humid areas, the built-in dehumidifier will def come in handy!
For a 8000 BTU AC, the dehumidifier is very high-performing.
Dehumidifier: 60 pints daily (7.5 gallons)
It comes 95% preassembled — buyers confirm it’s super easy to install.

I personally think the Emerson 8000 BTU Portable AC is one of the best options available.

It’s also very affordable!
Overall it’s a good, durable unit that’s ideal for any compact space.
