What Are You Buying?

You know what they say: to know a brand is to know its products. That sounds like a good place to start. Now, De’Longhi is already globally renowned for their extremely portable Pinguino (Italian for Penguin) line of air conditioners.

For over a century now, the company has been providing appliances that not only carry their Italian heritage, but also fit into any modern living or working space. That’s why the instant popularity of the PAC N87 was no surprise.

Boasting of a sleek, stylish, innovative and eco-friendly design, the PAC N87 is De’Longhi’s pride and joy. This air to air portable air conditioner is among the brand’s high-end models that doubles as a dehumidifier and will cost you a pretty penny.

However, the ample features and accessories tend to go hand in hand with a higher price. One of those features is a cooling capacity of 9800 BTU that lets you cool a room up to 80 m3 (that would be a room of c.30 sq metres or 322 sq feet) very fast. But what really impressed us was the unit’s energy-efficient and ecological capabilities.

The De’Longhi PAC N87 Pinguino Air Conditioner is the ideal unit for environmentalists and eco-conscious people. This is all thanks to the utilization of refrigerant gas R410A that maintains maximum cooling comfort while still being as kind as possible to the environment.

Combined with a Class A energy rating for the lowest power consumption, it’s clear that the N87 is all about savings. Now, I know you’re waiting to hear about the strongest selling point of the PAC N87 so I’ll get right to it below.

How Easy Is It To Use?

De'Longhi PAC N87 Pinguino Air-to-Air Silent Air Conditioner reviewLike virtually all other De’Longhi appliances, the PAC N87 couldn’t be any simpler to use. The set up itself is super easy and will only take you a few minutes to get done since there are no tools required. But don’t let anyone lie to you; you’ll have to install the exhaust hose which can be tough if it’s your first time.

After you’re all set up, operating the unit is a cinch thanks to user-friendly, easy to read, soft touch control panel. This wide panel includes all the settings you need to control the unit as well as a digital display to see what you’re doing.

Now for the best part; even on the maximum fan speed setting, the PAC N87 Pinguino air conditioner is still one of the most silent conditioners on the planet. Its record low noise emission levels of less than 50 decibels make it ideal for hospitals, libraries, nurseries, classrooms and any other places where some peace and silence will be appreciated.

Also, the manufacturer was thoughtful enough to include a remote control that lets you do everything from the comfort of your couch. The icing on out user-friendly cake comes in the form of handles and castors that allow you to move the air conditioner around quickly and conveniently.

What Accessories Are Included?

Anything Else You Should Know

While the manufacturer has stated that the Delonghi portable air conditioner is capable of removing over 24 litres of water a day, our sources say otherwise. Even with UK’s extremely humid climate, this unit barely makes half this capacity. So you might want to get a dedicated dehumidifier if you’re looking to extract more atmospheric water from the air.


Sleek, stylish, powerful, portable and extremely silent, the De’Longhi PAC N87 Pinguino Air Conditioner is an investment worth making. With this model, you get all the benefits of a high-end air conditioning unit without all the extra noise. And what’s more, the N87 is an answered prayer for environmentally conscious people. Sure, the dehumidification function might not be as strong, but it still gets the job done. But don’t take my word for it; buy your very own unit today and see first-hand how it works.
