For a budget model, the Emerson Quiet Kool 19S-EACH12R1W offers an impressive range of features, including some you might expect to only see in premium models. From WiFi connectivity to automated cleaning technology, this is a well-thought-out air conditioning unit that provides plenty of convenience features at a budget price point.

It has good cooling and heating power too, with enough to effectively cover spaces up to 550 square feet in size, which should be enough for most homes. However, if you need something more powerful, take a look at our round up of the best ductless air conditioners, but be aware that units with a higher BTU output tend to be on the pricier side.

The Emerson Quiet Kool 19S-EACH12R1W is a single zone system, which is fine if you just want to control the temperature of one room, but if you want a customizable setup that allows for different heating or cooling output in a few spaces, you should consider a dual zone system, like the Bosch 8733954447 ductless air conditioner.

Emerson Quiet Kool 19S-EACH12R1W: Pricing and value 

At just under $890, the Emerson Quiet Kool 19S-EACH12R1W is our best budget pick. Some premium units can reach up to $3,000, but these tend to be designed to heat much larger areas and are often suitable for multiple zones. As a single zone ductless air conditioner, the Emerson Quiet Kool 19S-EACH12R1W is best suited for single-room usage. Whilst that might be quite limiting for some, if you’re just looking to control the air temperature in a limited space and don’t want it making too much of a dent in your wallet, then this is a great option. 

There are plenty of options that allow for customized control, like a 24-hour timer and WiFi connectivity that allow this unit to be controlled via Google Assistant. So for anyone who needs a good air conditioner in a limited space, the Emerson Quiet Kool 19S-EACH12R1W offers great value for money.

Should you buy the Emerson Quiet Kool 19S-EACH12R1W? 

The Emerson Quiet Kool 19S-EACH12R1W is a budget model that offers smart features and a range of temperature control options that make it easy-to-use and great value, but as a single zone unit, its applications are a little more limited than other ductless air conditioners on the market. For example, the Bosch 8733954447 is a great dual zone ductless air conditioner that is great for cooling and heating multiple spaces at once, although it is also for sale at a much bigger price than the Emerson Quiet Kool 19S-EACH12R1W. If you don’t need dual zone air conditioning, not only is the Emerson Quiet Kool 19S-EACH12R1W a great unit, but it can save you a considerable amount of money too.
