Haier CPN12XH9

A central air conditioning system can be expensive to install as well as run. In fact, in some homes it’s just not possible to have something like this. This is why Haier has brought the CPN12XH9 portable air conditioner to the market. This very modern and sleekly designed air conditioner has a capacity of 12,000 BTU and will not only keep you cool in summer but it will also keep you warm in winter.

Review Details

What initially attract you to the Haier CPN12XH9 are its looks. The manufacturer has thought about aesthetics and electrical appliances in the home. With a sleek black/silver finish and modern look this air conditioner will not look out of place in any décor.

The carbon footprint and energy saving has also not been forgotten. This model complies with RoHS standards (free of lead and mercury) and is equipped with an eco-friendly R-410A refrigerant. It also comes with a convenient 24 hour on/off timer to help keep energy bills down.

Not only is this unit perfect for cooling rooms up to 350 square feet, it also has a 11,000 BTU heating capacity for the colder months. Additionally, it will also dehumidify the air for an all year round indoor air comfort.

What We Liked

  • Easy Installation
    Haier has responded to its customers in terms of easy installation. The CPN12XH9 comes complete with a window installation kit which couldn’t be simpler to use. It will also fit larger windows that are up to 46 inches wide.
  • Full Function Remote Control
    With this model you can operate all of the features from across the room using the full functional remote control
  • Versatility
    With adjustable airflow control and 3 fan/cooling speeds to choose from you can customize your cooling needs as desired.
  • -All Year Round Indoor Air Comfort
    This portable air conditioner is truly an all year round unit. It has 4 modes, cool/fan/heat/dehumidify which means no matter what the weather you will be able to attain the perfect air quality within your home.
  • Auto Evaporation
    This model uses auto evaporation which means continuous operation without the need to remove water.

What We Didn't Like

  • Size
    The CPN12XH9 is a fairly large unit given the area it’s designed to cool/heat. Therefore, checking the dimensions should be a consideration prior to purchase.
  • Noise Levels
    For people who are sensitive to noise overnight, you may find this unit emits too much, causing disruption to sleep. However, many reviewers have noted it’s about the same as a hotel unit.


For people who cannot have central A/C or prefer not to use a window unit, the Haier CPN12XH9 is the perfect answer. Considering it will keep you cool in summer, warm in winter and will remove up to 100 pints of moisture from the air in a 24 hour period, the price tag is incredibly reasonable. Ease of use with this unit is also very highly rated, so overall, it’s a good buy.
