We’re often asked, what is our all-time favorite Aldi Find? We realize this question is subjective, however, there is one Aisle of Shame purchase that we’ve made that stands out among all others, for the price, quality and how it has changed our lives— truly a product we never knew we needed….and now we are in love!
What is this life-changing Aldi Find? A Portable Air Conditioner!
Even if you have AC in your home, the reality is that not all rooms cool as well as others. For our home, it was the master bedroom that didn’t get enough airflow. The solution turned out to be an Aldi Portable Air Conditioner that doesn’t take up the window space that a wall AC unit does and it looks a lot nicer, too.
If you have a room that needs a little extra AC, especially in the summer months (when the summer heat can turn your nights into nightmares!) or have a wall unit that’s ready for an upgrade, here’s everything you need to know about the Aldi Portable Air Conditioner.
Who Makes Aldi Portable Air Conditioners?
Aldi Portable Air Conditioners are sold under the Aldi private label Easy Home brand. Since 2019, Aldi has been selling portable AC units and at that time, they were manufactured by Danby. From 2020 on, the look of the unit has remained similar, but it is unclear if the new models are still made by the same company.
We purchased our portable AC unit from Aldi in 2021 and are very pleased with the quality— it’s still going strong today, cooling our room to a blissful 66 degrees F.
How Much Are The Portable Air Conditioners at Aldi?
Aldi portable air conditioners are $169.99 (as of writing this post). This is a price increase from previous years when the unit was $199.99.
If you have shopped around for portable air conditioners, you know that most START in the $300 range with fewer BTUs than the Easy Home AC unit from Aldi. It’s an incredible value!
How to Buy Aldi Portable Air Conditioners
Portable air conditioners are sold at Aldi in the summer months. Aldi does not have the option to buy or ship online, therefore you will need to go in-store to purchase one of these units the week they are on sale.
The size without the box is 13″ x 26.77″ x 11″, so you will want to make sure your vehicle has enough space before buying.
There may be an option to purchase the portable ac unit from Instacart under Aldi Finds.
Are Aldi Portable Air Conditioners Worth It?
We can’t stress enough how amazing the portable air conditioner is from Aldi. It is 100% worth it and performs exactly as it should, cooling an area up to 200 sq. ft. (room size: 10′ x 20′)
The unit is on wheels, so it can be moved in the direction of your choice for maximum cooling. There is also a remote control, so you don’t have to get out of bed or out of a chair to turn on and off or adjust the temperature.

Do Aldi portable air conditioners have to be vented out the window?
Yes, a portable air conditioner, including the one sold at Aldi, still needs to be vented out a window. The good news is the exhaust hose is much smaller than an AC window unit, so you don’t lose a ton of window space. The design is also much more sleek and modern than a wall unit.

Yes, the Aldi portable air conditioner comes with a window installation kit. The included kit comes with an exhaust hose, 4 castors, 2 hose connectors and 2 dowels. It takes about 10 minutes to set up from start to finish.
