Video Review


DeLonghi PACAN120EW is ideal for a big bedroom or an average sized hall or other rooms with similar size. With its highly efficient cooling, effective dehumidifier, two filters, 3-speed fan, heater, and other amazing features make it perfect for a room of 400-600 square feet size. The foremost feature is that it is very eco-friendly.

If your room is up to 400-600 square feet size and your place is very hot and humid then this product is a must take away for you. If your room is smaller than 250 square feet or very large then you have to look for other air conditioners because in that case either it becomes very noisy for the room and may not deliver the experience you are looking for or the portable air conditioner will work overtime.
