What Type of Plug Do I Need for Portable AC?

When you rent a portable AC unit, you’ll need to ensure that you have the proper outlet and electricity setup. There are two parts to the plug type: voltage and amperage. Most residential rooms have circuits rated for a total of 15 amps of electricity, and many units have 125V/15A plugs that can be used in most homes. However, many of our larger units are higher than 15amps and more than 125 volts. It’s important to make sure you have the proper electrical setup before trying to rent a unit.
