Emerson Quiet Kool EAPC8RD1 Portable Air Conditioner Review

Last Updated on by

Emerson Quiet Kool EAPC8RD1When it comes to portable air conditioners, some manufacturers boast their size and the square footage that they cover. Others boast fancy, unnecessary Wi-Fi technology. Every once in a while, though, you just want a good value, true blue, quiet, portable air conditioner for a small space.

As the warmer months roll on, you do not always need the latest, loudest, more energy consuming models. If you have a bedroom, small apartment, or office space, a portable air conditioner will do the trick just fine. Even better though is one with multiple speed settings and a dehumidifier to reduce air moisture.

Product Information

The Emerson Quiet Kool EAPC8RD1 Portable Air Conditioner is a terrific, classic option for a small space. This air conditioner has a great reach and efficiently cools up to 150 square feet, making it perfect for a standard room or apartment. This spot cooler works quickly and efficiently.

The air filter reduces bacteria, odors, allergens, and dust mites but keeps it from going into the motor itself. This is important because clean air benefits your overall health and mood, especially your respiratory health.

The dehumidifier has an internal drainage system that you must set up and install. With constant drainage though, you will be reducing the moisture in the air. This will reduce excess mold or water damage over the long term to your house or office.

With an LED display it is easy to see. The remote control has good reach and is highly functional. It comes with a 24-hour timer that you can program to turn on and off at different times. The Emerson also comes with a sleep mode that is energy efficient at night and will turn cooler towards the morning time when you would be waking up anyway.

Emerson has one of the better warranties that we have seen out there as well. It starts with a 1-year labor warranty to cover any fixes needed. There is a 2-year parts warranty for any malfunctioning parts. One of the most important parts of an air conditioner is the compressor and that is why Emerson has a 5-year warranty on its compressor in case anything should happen.


Besides cool, clean air, the greatest benefit from this unit is the peace of mind that if anything goes amiss, or if there is a malfunction, Emerson’s warranty has you covered. There is no need to go through one cheap portable air conditioner after another when you can have a warranty that covers labor, parts, and an extended warranty for the compressor itself.

The air filters are easily washable and cleaner air has been shown by research to not only boost your respiratory health but your overall health and mental health. Everything from boosting clarity to increasing serotonin levels, better oxygenation helps all the way around. And now you can have it without the extra hassle of a hard-to-clean filter.

Enjoy dry, clean, cool air without the noise of a jet engine roaring next to you as so often happens with these types of units. Keep the air chilly and your atmosphere quiet and cool without paying for more than you need. With peace of mind, a cool climate, breathable air, and next to no rattling noise, it’s no wonder that the Emerson is a popular unit.
