240V Portable AC Unit

newfman2March 11, 2013

Hi Everyone, does anyone know of any portable AC units like those at Costco that can run off a 120V and 240V outlet?

I have a 240V single phase UK outlet on my generator, it's 60Hz but 240V line-neutral, exact same as the UK power.

An AC unit with this feature would be marked on the back like 120V/240V or something like that possibly with a switch near it to select either/or.

I don't think anyone makes a 240V portable air conditioner unit. Even if they did, it would not be switchable between 120V and 240V. That a feature would be very expensive to include in the product.

There are window units which require 240V. These typically units larger than 10,000 BTU.

Yes, there are portable AC units that run on 240 or 208/240. They are likely large and likely costly. Try adding "construction" to your search. You will have to sort through different chaff, but you will find them.
