Description: How timely. On what is turning out to be perhaps the hottest days of the summer, we've got an air conditioner to give away. This one is a powerful, portable model (above) from our friends over at Compact Appliance. They'll tell you all about it below. This week we're using a form, so enter by filling it out and sending it in to us...
Simply put, based on our independent testing and customer feedback, the EdgeStar Extreme Cool line of portable air conditioners offer the perfect combination of cooling power, quality and style- a combination unmatched by any other unit on the market. We recommend this stylish silver portable air conditioner as the best choice for cooling rooms from up to 425 sq. ft. The EdgeStar AP12000S Portable Air Conditioner combines superior engineering, colder airflow, and a more energy efficient design to be our top cooling choice.
Another great feature of this portable air conditioner is that it is an environmental friendly unit - It meets new RoHS standards. RoHS, also known as the lead-free directive, stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. The goal of RoHS is to restrict the amount of certain toxins in electronic and electrical equipment such as lead, mercury, and cadmium. This restriction lessens the harmful impact these toxins can have on the environment and allows for the safer disposal and recycling of electronics and electrical equipment.
* Coldest AirFlow of any Unit Tested- Extreme Cool design uses a more efficient compressor than the competition & delivers higher airflow volume. This helps to bring down the temperature of your room faster than other units.
* Self-Evaporative System- This AP12000S offers a new patented Z-Spray auto drain exhaust system that essentially eliminates the need to empty any water from the unit. It also offers a direct drain option that allows you to run the unit 365 days a year without having to empty any water accumulation.
* Cool Boost Technology - Provides a cooling boost that allows the unit to operate more efficiently and lower your energy cost.
* Quiet Operation - Lower operating noise levels than competing units.
* Superior Reliability: Through quality construction and more durable internal components, the AP12000S is designed to last longer and work in more rigorous environments than other brands.
