Arvin Split System AR-CD07HC
17 facts in comparison
Portable air conditioners can easily be moved to another location and set up fairly easy. They are usually cheaper than other models but don't have the same conditioning efficiency.
Air-cooled systems have lowest overall cost and are easy to maintain and install. Unfortunately, they often have less heat removal capacity per unit compared to other configurations.
The device consists of two parts, one internal and one external. The indoor unit inside the room replaces warm air with cool air. The outdoor unit is installed outside the house, and pumps out the warm air. Split ACs are quieter and have better air distribution than other models.

The air flow level is a measurement of the amount of air per unit of time that flows through a device. It indicates how fast the device can condition air.
Cooling capacity is measured in British Thermal Units (BTU). It is a measure of a cooling system's ability to remove thermal energy from an area, under standard conditions. The higher the BTU, the more powerful the AC, which means it will be able to cool a larger space.
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
Reverse cycle air conditioning extracts heat from the outside air, even on mid-winter nights, and transfers it inside. Inverter technology provides not only high-speed cooling but also heating with extra energy savings compared to non-inverter models.
Function that allows you to control when the device will shut off to help reduce costs.
With a manual thermostat you have a range of temperature settings (usally low, middle and high) to choose from. These are usually cheap and easy to use, though they offer less precision.
