Cool It Down This Summer With These Portable A/Cs and Fans

They'll save you from the unbearable heat

Life and Home

If you live in an apartment without a fan or A/C you probably figured out by now that some sort of ventilation or way to bring down the temperature is not really optional, but necessary. Luckily you don’t need a built in A/C to feel comfortable. You can always just buy a portable one. There are many different options both for fans and A/Cs, so depending on your living situation, the space you need it for, and your budget, you’ll be sure to find something that works for you. Here are some of our favorites.
