Best Yet Cheap Portable Air Conditioners in Australia

Summer in Australia can be rough, we often hit above 40 degrees and our sun burns and heats up homes within hours. Last year I personally went through the struggle of not having a split system or window wall air conditioner. My partner and I ended up buying a cheap air conditioner as we really could not afford an expensive fancy one. It was the first time I really used a portable air conditioner and I found the experience a lot less painful then I imagined. Before I used one, they just looked complicated and frustrating to install and use, however that’s really is not the case, they are intuitive devices that are simple to use and perform extremely well.
