Easy setup but a bit bulky


Unit was larger than I anticipated but that is to be expected for 11,000 BTU's. Rolls easy but not across carpet so be careful. Window adapters are pretty easy to set up but pay attention to which side is the exhaust. If you have to set it up in a...

You can find better mobile AA


Is not cold enough for even a small room, it has no auto motion.

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...

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'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...
