It's okay


The window-kit didn't fit my particular window, but that's okay, I had read that it doesn't fit anybody's window really. Also, the air conditioner is unable to cool a 400-square foot room if I have the window so much as cracked. But when it starts...

sleek and has nice features


It does not seem to be that energy efficient-electric bill went up about $70.00 over our last portable ac and it was 3 years old. We used the old one just prior to purchasing this new one and noticed the signifcant difference when our bill arrived....

I'm so glad I made this purchase


I live in an apartment and the little window air conditionert they have in my living room just doesn't cool my place off at all. This unit has made a huge difference, and has kept my place cool. I'm looking forward to trying out the heater this winter....

Good for a portable AC unit


After looking at reviews for weeks i finally ordered this unit. When it arrived at my door i was surprised how big the box was. Unpacking and installing the window vent was easy. Bottom line is this unit will not cool like a window unit of comparable...

Great Unit


Works great for cooling! Cools down my 700sqft TV room quickly. Noise level is better than most. Installation is pretty much a snap, I did have to trim the window sliders to fit the narrow window I installed the unit in, but that is something I...

Perfect for my application


I purchased this unit to convert my garage into an embroidery studio. The unit easily vented through the garage door and disconnects if and when I need to open the door. It cooled the space down in about 10-15 minutes when the front of the garage was...

A very nice unit


I bought this unit to keep my garage at a reasonable temperature (89) in the summer and to be a backup in case something goes wrong with my house AC. As luck would have it, my home AC went out a week after I received this. I was able to cool down my...

It cools the house wonderfully.


I recently bought new windows and we didn't want a window unit to damage them in any way so we looked for a portable air conditioner. At first we bought a Soleus Air Conditioner/Heater 13,000 BTU and it did not even cool our living room. So, I...

Cools very well, would recommend


Not perfect, but definitely a keeper.This Whynter air conditioner is by far one of the better air conditioners I've used over the last 10 years. We no longer use central air except when there are guests. Spot coolers like this save a considerable...
