HomeLabs Portable AC (14,000 BTU) Review
Very good 14,000 BTU portable air conditioner for rooms up to 600 sqft. Currently being used in a 3 car garage/workshop. Easy installation but still capable of being efficiently moved.
4.3 out of 5.0 stars.

What We Like
What We Don't Like
This unit was a lot heavier than we expected. Comes in at 72.3lbs. As mentioned previously, it is convenient to move around once it has been set up (it has wheels and rolls easily). The actual dimensions of the A/C unit are pretty small considering it can cool down an entire 3 car garage. The included window kit was very easy to install and had everything needed to get a nice seal on the window.
So, What's in the box?
It comes with the 14,000 BTU air conditioning unit, window slider/adapter, exhaust hose, adhesive foam window seal, dehumidifier drain hose, window security bracket, and the remote control.
HomeLabs has created an afforable portable A/C unit that performs. The unit that The Tool Space tested is currently being used in a 600sqft garage/workshop (my father-in-law is building a boat so he needed to stay cool). It can be daunting trying to sort through so many options to keep a work space cool (or any space) but we found the HomeLabs 14,000 BTU unit to hit the mark. We will be conducting more reviews on cooling solutions for your tool space but it was pretty cool to start with a system that we like. This unit is not the cheapest 14,000 BTU A/C on the market but it works as described by HomeLabs. It will perform for all three of our The Tool Space users: DIY, Handyman, and Contractor.
