Keeps a glass balcony nice and cool


I bought this for my apartment that has a large glass balcony that gets very hot during the day. While this unit is overpowered for the size of the area, it has performed quite well.

Excellent product for the money


This product is great. The air conditioner cools very fast. Have not used the heater yet. Have not used the dehumidifier either; but I want to hook it up so I will have a continuous drain;and not have to worry about it. The customer service is...

Works extremely well

A little heavy to move around by one person

Good air conditioner, mostly as expected


The installation was easy. I have windows that slide sideways, so the two hoses for in and out are one above the other. The first time I turned it on, about four hours later the water tank was full. That surprised me because I thought that the tank...

It cools nicely. Having separate hoses for outside air inflow and exhaust is a good idea

The water collection tank fills up quite quickly, so I put a tube in to drain

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...

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...

Reveiw 12,000 BTU Portable Portable Air


arrived in god condition. Air Conditioner with Dehumidifier worked fine. Heat not yet fully checked

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...
