It's cooler now...


As long as this unit lasts in 24/7 operation, I'll be very happy with my purchase. Lost 1 egg due to the exhaust hose not being longer. FYI: Newegg site doesn't list the exhaust kit I had to buy but the same company makes the unit and the kit.

Unit arrived quickly and in good shape. Unboxed and setup in about 15 minutes. Only assembly was the exhaust hose and connectors, which required a phillips screwdriver. Cooled room quickly and effectively. Haven't had to empty condensate (working as...

Excellent choice


I found this unit to be as advertised . It is a quality product. The vent hose was easy to install. We use this unit in addition to central air as needed. I expect to have many years of service from this unit.

A Lifesaver


This Air Conditioner is a life saver. In Washington State, my daughter and her family seldom have hot weather, so few homes have air conditioning. This summer was the exception. I purchased this portable for them and then went to visit. The portable is...

Keeps my bedroom cool


I purchased this same model 4-1/2 years ago and was very pleased with it until the compressor or the fan started making a horrible noise this year. When I called Living Direct to ask some questions, the customer service rep told me the life of this...
