A Review of the Global Air NPA1-08C Portable Air Conditioner
I received the Global Air NPA1-08C portable air conditioner to test and review. I must say that I was immediately shocked with its lightweight construction. It only weighs 49.5 pounds, which is extremely light compared to other brands. I guess if this unit is capable of cooling my living room, I will stick it in my daughter’s bedroom. Below you will discover a breakdown of this unit and my personal review of the NPA1-08C.
When reviewing the product’s specs, you should note that this is a compact unit. The Global Air will sufficiently cool a small living space or office. This unit will not be suitable for areas larger than 200 square feet, so keep this in mind.
- 8,000 BTU, with capabilities of cooling a 200 square foot space
- Dehumidifies up to 2.0 pints/hour
- Equipped with a 2-speed cooling option, so you can customize your breeze
- Energy saving 24-hour on/off timer
- Very affordable price tag, which will make your wallet happy
As you can easily see the Global Air is a little limited on its usages. If are in need of a compact portable air conditioner, then this brand will definitely service you very well.
Extremely Easy Setup
The portable air conditioner produces an extreme amount of heat. The vent will need to be run outside of your home. The window installation kit and instruction booklet is included in the purchase price, which is a very simple setup. Just follow the step-by-step guide so the process will flow right along effortlessly.
User Friendly Digital Controls
The user friendly digital knobs and buttons are self-explanatory. You will be able to adjust the settings very simply without the need of dragging out the owner’s manual. The design is very simple, which is important for all homeowners.
The Global Air operates under a very low noise level. You will not be annoyed by the operational sounds even when the unit is sitting right next to your bed or recliner. I kept the air conditioner running the entire time I was watching the Super Bowl. I must say that it never interfered with my hearing whatsoever.
Not Very Powerful
While most consumers expect to receive diverse usage from a good portable air conditioner, this will not be the case with the Global Air. It is only capable of cooling and dehumidifying up to a 200 square feet space as this unit only has an 8,000 BTU rating.
You will definitely be satisfied with the Global Air, as long as you are aware of its limitations beforehand. The price tag is very affordable and it will sufficiently do exactly what the manufacturer promises.
