We can all agree that it’s been hot AF lately. As temperatures continue to rise to unbearable levels, many apartment dwellers are looking for ways to stay cool. You could try begging your landlord to install air conditioning in your building, but we wouldn’t hold our breath.

Portable air conditioners offer a convenient solution. These units connect to a nearby window to quickly cool bedrooms, offices, or small apartments. You can even move them from room to room as needed. (For an even more convenient option that won’t take up precious floor space, we were pretty impressed by the Windmill AC (medium, 8,300 BTU) window unit recently.)

Luckily, Amazon is offering up to 30% off select portable air conditioners right now, so you can beat the heat without breaking the bank.

Best deal overall

Why we like it

The Honeywell 9,000 BTU portable air conditioner is ideal for smaller apartments or cooling your bedroom or home office. It can cover up to 400 square feet and has a built-in dehumidifier. The unit also has a washable dust filter for quick maintenance and a filter change alert function to let you know when it’s time to clean it.

Yes, there is a hose that connects this unit to the window, but it’s not as cumbersome as some of those old-school units. Plus, with the on-screen coupon, you’ll save an extra $48 at checkout, bringing the total to a whopping $271 (which is a pretty good deal for a Honeywell air conditioner).

Best air conditioner for larger rooms

Why we like it

The BLACK+DECKER 14,000 BTU portable air conditioner can cool larger spaces of up to 700 square feet. It has a remote and can switch to heater mode in cooler months. There’s also a dehumidifier and a fan, and the filter is washable for easy maintenance. It’s a little pricier than the unit above, but it covers 200 more square feet, and the customer reviews are solid (4.2 out of 5 stars from more than 46,000 reviewers). Finally, this is the top-selling portable air conditioner on Amazon, if you trust the wisdom of the crowd.

Best budget deal

Why we like it

The SereneLife 12,000 BTU portable air conditioner is a mid-range option that can cool up to 550 square feet. It doesn’t have a heater like the BLACK+DECKER, so it probably won’t be a year-round solution, but it does have a dehumidifier, fan, and remote. There’s also an auto “swing” mode with a moving wind vent for optimal air circulation. With a 4.3-star rating and more than 20,000 reviews, this portable AC is a budget-friendly option that’ll get the job done.
