Answer: Yes, portable air conditioners are energy efficient. Rrunning a portable air conditioner uses as little as one-eighth of the electricity required to run a central air-conditioning unit, which roughly translates to one-eighth of the cost, as well. Buy a machine that has the EER (Energy Efficiency Rate) of 10 and more. EER of 10 and more is excellent. The unit needs 115 Volt/60 Hertz - the normal household standard.
