portable air conditioners

i need to purchase a portable air conditioner. a 12,000 BTU unit

should be just the right size (just a bit larger than i actually


i'd like the unit:

  • to be well built

  • have replaceable parts that i can order

  • to be energy efficient

here are a few i'm interested in:

NewAir AC-12000E


Amcor ALD12000E

one nice thing about the Sunpentown WA-1220M is that replacement parts

can be ordered:


does anyone know if there are any cons to self-evaporating units?

any opinions on what i should purchase? any other suggestions in

addition to what i've listed here?
