Black and decker 8000 BTU portable air conditioner is a 3-in-1 AC, fan, and dehumidifier for your home.
It is important to have an air conditioner in your room during those hot summer months in order to remain cool, comfortable, and relaxed. However, if your room is smaller, you might not need a wall-mounted AC unit.
This portable AC unit is the ideal solution for keeping your room cool without permanently installing a large air conditioner. The unit can be rolled into the room, connected to a double-hung or sliding window, and then you’re ready to start cooling.

BLACK AND DECKER 8000 BTU PORTABLE AIR CONDITIONER REVIEW
You will stay cool and comfortable all summer long with the Black and Decker 8000 BTU portable air conditioner.
Designed for rooms up to 150 square feet, this floor-standing AC unit provides steady, fast, and effective cooling. Whether it’s in a dorm, apartment, cabin, camper, office, bedroom, or living room, it’s an ideal small air conditioner.
With 61 degrees Fahrenheit at the coldest setting, the fan speed can be adjusted and the air swing can be adjusted up and down automatically. You can set the sleep mode to 52dB for a night of extra quiet sleep.
It may seem like a big risk to buy this portable AC unit based on the negative reviews, in general. You will find everything you need for setting up this unit in the package along with great instructions.
Getting started is straightforward and you can do it from home. As long as the window is closed properly and the hose is connected correctly, everything should work fine.
You can install this portable air conditioner with 4 wheels in any room with a double-hung or sliding window. Plug in the 70.8-inch-long power cord with the included 4′ 11″ hose & window adapter. You can unhook and store the hook when you are not using it.
An air exhaust hose with a diameter of 5.9 inches, an inlet-outlet hose, two locking screws, and a drain hose are included with the window kit.
It works like a dream and gets extremely cold very quickly. It’s understandable that people complain about the noise, but you have to understand that this is an AC unit. The sound is very similar to that of wall-mounted or window-mounted units.
It’s as simple as rolling the unit into a room, attaching the included hose and window adapter, and getting cooling. Extra portability is provided by its compact size, integrated carry handles, and 4 castor wheels. The device can even be taken with you on camping trips or to college dorms. In addition to being easy to store, it fits into most closets at the end of the season.
Approximately $10 is required for a month’s worth of use of this thing for about 10 hours per day. With some of the miserable temperatures this summer, it’s definitely worth the cost not to roast in your home.
The 24-hour timer saves money and prevents waste. There is strong cooling power from the Black and Decker 8000 BTU portable air conditioner. At night, the air temperature is automatically controlled by the Sleep Mode.
Includes 6.7 ounces of R32 refrigerant, which has zero impact on the ozone layer and improves energy efficiency. There are three levels of fan speed: low, medium, and high.
- Quiet and powerful
- Perfect for rooms
- Simple & quick to install
- Easy to use & clean
- 3-in-1 functionality
- Powers back on automatically if power is lost
- Hot air blows from the unit
- A little loud for some users
In order for the coolant to settle, you must let the unit stand vertically for at least 3-6 hours. It is recommended that you place these after a thin and breathable piece of cloth has been placed on the lower “screen”. Unless the unit is cleaned regularly, dust, animal fur, and other debris will accumulate inside and destroy the device.
Dog fur may cover the heat-dissipation fins, making it impossible for the heat to be removed from the unit. Besides being a fire hazard, this doesn’t bode well for the longevity of the unit. Full disassembly of the unit is necessary to access the fins, which will void the warranty. Make sure this part is cleaned out once a week at the very least.

For water drainage, a smaller hose is provided. Water needs to be drained into a bucket or pan if there is high humidity in your area. Ensure that the exhaust hose is tightly attached to the unit from all sides. Hot air is blown outside via the exhaust. This means it removes air from your room, so the room must replenish it elsewhere.
A poorly sealed window will likely pull back all the hot air it blows out. Look around again: where does the air come from now? Seal it tight, then look around again: what’s the source of the air? Your house’s restroom (hopefully) won’t be as hot as the outside, so it’s ideal for it to come from there. Your room gets hot from the hose, so make sure it is as short as possible.
