If you’re going to throw down for a portable air conditioner, spending a little extra can get you a fair amount of decent add-ons. Not only does this Danby unit cool a 500 square-foot room, it also doubles as a dehumidifier and, in the winter, a space heater of sorts.

An 83-pound space heater, yes, but moving it around ought to get your blood flowing pretty nicely on those cold winter days.
