Power

The Black + Decker BPACT12WT is a powerful air conditioning unit designed to keep you cool. At 12,000 BTUs it can easily cool just about any room in your house (up to 300 sq. ft). No matter what the conditions are like outside, you can count on this unit maintaining a steady temperature where it counts, on the inside.

One of the greatest things about this unit is that it’s able to meet your needs with three different modes of operation: a cooling mode to keep the temperature down, a fan to help stir air when it starts to feel stuffy and a dehumidifier to help pull moisture out of the air. Because of these different modes, you can count on feeling cool and comfortable in your room, regardless of what it feels like on the outside. Even more, this unit can operate in a corner of the room or -- with the help of the conveniently included kit -- placed in a window like a traditional window unit.
