Without AC, water, heat, electricity and gas – your mobile home is not much more than an aluminum box.  Some units in mobile home parks have these utilities ready to connect. In others, there's some work involved.  For safety and convenience - it's imperative that these are hooked up properly.

Portable AC Units - Do they work?

I manage social media for Daylight in Las Vegas.  Since we do not have an option of using Daylight for our HVAC - I shopped around for portable A/C unit. They are highly advertised right now. Here is what I found...


Prices range from $49 to $279. From the reviews I've read they are all pretty much the same. High price won’t get you anything better.


How they Work

Most use frozen inserts or ice, or ice trays that slip into the unit. Then a fan blows the cool air out.  So they are "not" mini air conditioners.

Do they work?

The independent reviews on YouTube are fairly bad.  If you live in a humid environment they are worthless. One guy has 3 in his bathroom and it created a thick fog. If you live in a closet or studio apartment and have one close to your body they may help a little in non humid climates.


If you live in a humid climate or have a normal size living space - you are better off using traditional A/C.

Ready for summer?

You should have your heating and air conditioning system checked once a year.  This is a good time to have it done, so that you're not sweating it on a hot summer day.

Here are some steps you can take to maintain your system -

1.  Check the filter and change regularly.

2.  Turn on system and listen for any possible signs for trouble.

3.  Turn off and check for debris potentially clogging your system.

Warning, Warning, Carbon Monoxide Detected!

You need to know that Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that is poisonous to humans. We two legged mammals cannot tell when we are around it, but it is very dangerous and potentially deadly! Your carbon monoxide detector is a safety device that may be a lifesaver.

Here are a few things that you should know about them…

1.  They provide an early warning of poisonous gas.

2.  Carbon monoxide may be produced by any fuel-burning device.

3.  The alarms should be installed on every level of your home.

4.  They have shelf-lives of five to seven years.

That is where Daylight Electric and HVAC comes in. How old are your CO detectors? They will replace them for you if their time has come. Even if you have taken exceptional care of your carbon monoxide detectors do not hesitate! If you live in Belen area keep your CO detectors up to date. Visit and call (505) 864-3980.
