To beat the summer heat, a functional air conditioner is now all but necessary. They can certainly be a pricey investment if you're thinking of upgrading your entire home, but there are also temporary — and more affordable — solutions if you're sticking to a budget.

Portable air conditioners are the ideal solution for small rooms that could use a boost of cooling power. Like central AC, they work to cool a room by drawing in warm air from the home and passing it over an evaporator coil that absorbs heat and removes humidity, which is essential for helping to cool the air.

One top choice is included in Amazon Canada's early Prime Day deals, and it's now a whopping 50 per cent off.

The details

The Erhivora Portable Air Conditioner is a top choice among shoppers as a way to effectively cool down small spaces. Its two in one design helps to cool and humidify indoor air, helping to create a comfortable environment no matter the temperature outdoors.

This portable air conditioner has a compact design that's easy to move around. It also comes with four speeds and two wind modes to choose from to create your ideal settings.

What shoppers are saying

Although reviews on this small but mighty air conditioner are mixed, it currently sits at the top of Amazon's list of best-selling portable AC units.

Shoppers have said that it "works really well" and is "very refreshing" to use in the warmer months of the year. Another reviewer found that you "feel the cool air right away," which can help you quickly cool down when needed.

Shoppers recommend that this unit is best for use on desktops to help cool you down while you work, or in small spaces like RVs or transport trucks. In fact, one truck driver praised this AC unit for being "excellent in my 18 wheeler."

Some reviewers were disappointed with the cooling ability of this portable air conditioner, finding that it does "no more than a fan." Others were also not a fan of the cable that comes with it, since only a USB cord is included, and a power adapter is necessary if you're hoping to plug directly into a wall outlet.

Verdict

While the Erhivora Portable Air Conditioner may not be the most powerful AC unit around, it is effective at providing relief from the heat for individual use. With its current sale price of just $35, it's also one of the most affordable options around.

If you do end up purchasing this portable air conditioner, you may just want to add a USB power adapter to your order for even more versatility when using it.
