The DeLonghi PACN120E is a portable air conditioner that not only cools the air in a room up to 450 square feet; it will dehumidify and act as a fan as well. With a cooling capacity of 12,000 BTU, this powerful yet compact unit will keep the air in a room at a comfortable level all year round. It has all the features you would expect from this manufacturer and more.
When used as an air conditioning unit the DeLonghi PACN120E offers comfort control across the whole room. It has an easy to use electronic climate control (ECC) panel which includes a digital thermostat and 24 hour timer. The control panel will also allow the user to choose from one of 3 fan speeds, turn on the dehumidifier, set the digital timer and set the auto-fan function.
DeLonghi has intelligently used a patented non-drip function when the PACN120E is dehumidifying. This means it discharges all of the moisture collected through an exhaust hose, eliminating the need to empty a bucket.
Operating this model from across the room is a breeze with the fully functional remote control. From here it’s possible to select the timer, fan speeds and change the modes.
What We Liked
- Ultra Quiet Operation
DeLonghi has incorporated a high efficiency compressor and other components that make this one of the quietest models on the market.
- 24 Hour Timer
Only run the PACN120E when its needed. By using the timer function, you can set the unit to turn on/off up to 24 hours in advance.
- Effective Dehumidification
The PACN120E has been cleverly designed so you will never need to empty a bucket or drip tray. The unit discharges the moisture through an exhaust hose connected at the back.
- Ease of Use
With an auto-fan function, easy to use electronic climate control panel, and fully functional remote control the PACN120E couldn’t be easier to operate.
- Energy Efficient
Due to the slow power consumption and 24 hour timer, this model will not break the bank in terms of running costs.
What We Didn't Like
- Directional Airflow
The PACN120E air conditioner is not fitted with directional airflow. However, as the unit is portable, it can be moved around if cooler air is needed in a specific direction.
- Heat Function
This model does not incorporate a heat function. It’s purely designed for cooling and dehumidifying the air.
The PACN120E is not the cheapest model on the market. However, DeLonghi has built their reputation on producing excellent quality products that are built to last, and this multifunctional air conditioner/fan/dehumidifier seems to be no different. With a cooling capacity of 12,000 BTU, it will easily cope with cooling and dehumidifying the air in a room up to 550 square feet in size. Considering the innovative dehumidification feature and ease of use, this model is worth the investment.Review by AirReflect ©
