The 5 Best Small Window Air Conditioners August, 2017 (And 11 Others)


While a small air conditioner might not provide as much power as bigger units, in a small- to medium-sized room of around 200 square feet, these 5000 to 8000 BTU models at least 19-inch wide or less, but quite often less than 12-inch wide, should be sufficient enough for small rooms. They also occupy less space both in width and height, though if height is your concern, you should check out our best low-profile window air conditioner list (where all models are under 12.5-inch high).

Back to this list: It includes some small air conditioners that have a standalone dehumidifier and a 24-hour on/off timer to save electricity. Some even have a remote control with a built-in thermostat display that gives you a temperature reading wherever you are in the room -- a feature normally associated with higher-priced air conditioners.

All of the small air conditioners listed here are window-mounted models and designed for narrow windows.
