Continuing from the previous page, here I can recommend some models of fully self evaporating portable air conditioners available at Amazon to a wider global audience.
Let's get straight into the models I can recommend that are available at Amazon in and outside of the United States!
I can recommend the following that I consider to be among the best portable AC brands with self-evaporating technology.
Note: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, manufacture and shipping of many air conditioning models from their point of origin to the stores was severely limited in 2021 but is getting better now we're in 2022. Stocks will vary from country to country and may become unavailable at any time.
At the time of publication, the following affordable and recommended models are currently available to buy online from Amazon. See below:

Whynter ARC-14S 14,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner
This powerful dual-hose equipped portable AC is very popular thanks to its robust build quality and reliability in this power range.
The self-evaporating technology used in Whynter AC units is one of the best around, capable of cooling a room of up to 500 sq ft using CFC-free GREEN R32 refrigerant.
It not only removes condensate from inside the unit and exhausts it to the outside air, it also uses that moisture to aid the cooling process, making the unit more efficient and economical.
In everyday terms, that means it's cheaper to run than comparable non-evaporating AC units.
So what else is cool about this model?
It has three operating modes:
- Cooling (air conditioning with 3 fan speeds and full thermostat control)
- Fan only (for those times when it's not so hot and you just want some nice air circulation)
- Dehumidification (for humid areas this model can extract up to 101 pints of moisture per day
Dual Hose Operation
Using two hoses instead of one, the extra efficiency obtained means faster cooling and it also adds to the cost savings. Here's why:
Single-hose AC units suck air into the unit from the room, cools it and sends it back into the room as cold air. The problem comes because it also needs to exhaust the hot air that is created out through the single vent.
This creates negative pressure in the room. When the inside pressure is lower than it is outside, nature does its best to rebalance things by cauing hot air from outside to be sucked into the room through any cracks or crevices to bring the pressure level.
This means the AC unit has to work harder to cool the air because hot air keeps getting in!
Dual hose models eliminate this problem by taking air in from outside to cool. This creates a regular flow of fresh air and doesn't create a pressure difference, so no hot air from outside can leak into the room.
That means the AC runs more efficiently which costs you less to run it overall!
What you get with the Whynter AC is a powerful cooling appliance that is also economical to run in comparison with similar models from other manufacturers.

A portable AC is so convenient and flexible, you can just roll it into the room where you need it, attach the hose and window adaptor to a close-by window, and in no time at all you are enjoying the cooling comfort you need on a hot summer day.

The models above were chosen for not just their great performance, quality and affordable price, but also for availability.
So many great models from top manufacturers are currently out of stock, making it tough to get a new air conditioner this summer.
These models are available at the time of publication but be sure to check the Amazon page in case this changes without notice.
