There's a very specific reason why I decided to write about air conditioners. Are you guys ready for a "feel good" story? Don't worry. You won't hurt my feelings if you prefer to get right to my list of the Best Air Conditioners. Just scroll past the short story below to see my list!

So... my "office" is basically a shed that's detached from my house. I have a fan and an a/c window unit. Under normal circumstances, that would be more than enough to keep it cool in here. However, when you throw in the fact that I live in Florida and it's hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk right now, my 5 year old window unit just wasn't cutting it.
So... my son-in-law walked into my office yesterday afternoon and he immediately asked me what was wrong. I couldn't understand why he was asking me such a strange question. Aside from feeling like I was sitting inside an oven, there was truly nothing wrong. So, when I asked him why he was asking me such a strange question, he proceeded to tell me my face was beat red and I looked like I just ran a marathon. Anyone who knows me knows better than that! If I'm running anywhere, it's because someone is chasing me!
So, today I was inside vacuuming up the 45 pounds of hair my dogs seem to shed every year at this time and I see my son-in-law walk past the window with a huge box. He comes in the door with a brand new A/C window unit and said to me: "I can't stand seeing you back there all red-faced and stuff". While I can't say I was shocked (he's always doing thoughtful things for me), I was 100% elated! How lucky am I to have a baby girl who found such a kind, generous, loving young man?
So... I hope you enjoy my Best Air Conditioners blog even more now that you know what inspired it ♥ As promised, here are the Best Air Conditioners on the market today based on my review of consumer reviews, feedback, buying history, etc... Enjoy!
Window Air Conditioners
This is the type of air conditioner I use for my office which is 12 x 16. I've always opted for the "small room" units. Dependent upon the quality and size of the unit, these can cool up to 650 square feet with no problem whatsoever. They're also the cheapest of your 3 options and installation isn't as difficult as you think it might be. When someone thinks of installing a window unit, they automatically assume the worst. It's really not that bad guys. I assure you!
Portable Air Conditioners
If you don't have the time, energy or window space, a portable air conditioner might be a better option for you. However, with convenience comes cost. Portable air conditioners are a bit more expensive than window air conditioners and don't quite meet the cooling capacity of a window unit. These will cool a little over 500 feet depending on the unit.
Split System Air Conditioners
This is the closest you'll get to a central air conditioning system. They're also the most expensive of the 3. The good news? You don't need a window to install a split system and there's no duct work involved! You basically have your compressor outside and the actual unit inside. If you're not familiar with the process of installing split systems, you may want to hire a professional. Amazon actually has a home maintenance service where you can hire someone (with reviews) to do the work for you. You can check it out here. I just recently found out about this service from Amazon and I absolutely love it!
