Portable ac ratings part 17 continues our expert and unbiased reviews with a look at the Tili, Timberk, Toyotomi, Tristar, Vent-Axia, Whynter, and Yonan brands.

BRAND----------COOL ONLY---HEAT/COOL

TILI----------------<1*----------<1*

These units use electronic control and have three modes (cool, dehumidify, fan). These units have auto evaporation technology so condensate bucket dumping is not required. The units use R-22 refrigerant which is being phased out and the guarantee on the units is not very good when compared to other brands. The units are made in China and are imported into the USA by NORTH AMERICAN HVAC PRODUCTS LTD. northamericanhvac.com

TIMBERK------------<1*----------<1*

This brand is made in Russia by GROVOLD LTD. COMPANY. The units offer digital controls with a remote and have three fan speeds. The units feature a double air filtration system to improve the quality of the home's air. The heat/cool units have a built-in ceramic heater instead of using heat pump technology. The warranty on the units is not as good as many brands. timberk.ru
