Cools Quickly

 

After the humid heatwaves in Southern California last month I finally decided to buy an a/c. Unfortunately, I haven't a chance to really put this a/c through it's paces yet. Our most recent heatwave was the dry Santa Ana variety. Not nearly as...

Cools Quickly

Not as cool as I hoped - so far

Rated As Best Portable AC

 

The vertical installation was easy in a sliding window, but I had to make modifications because the kit wasn't made to specs and directions were unclear. I ended up using plenty of duct tape to seal the cracks and anchor the kit. The product...

Quick cooling, easy installation, good price

Ambient light from display, noise, short power cord

Overall great unit

 

Overall great. Works as promised. But, the drain is too close to the ground and can't get anything underneath to catch the water. Also the window attachments are terrible, wound up making my own.

Easy to set up. Gets cold and stays cold

Window attachment, draining hose

I believe that for a 12000 btu ac, is not as cold

 

It should cool down the bedroom faster and better. I thought that since this is a 12.000 BTU AC, I was going to get a better quality

Not sure

It should provide more cooling

Consumer review by:

somewhat loud, but dual hose system works well.

 

Cools room very quickly. This dual hose unit is the only way to go. Don't waste your money on a single hose unit. They just pull hot humid air back into your home. I can't believe there are so many single hose units on the market.

Does a good job of cooling

 

It is easy to operate. We could sleep even though when the compressor is on it is noisy. It would be easier to install if we had windows that lifted rather than cranked out however I wouldn't say it was difficult to install. I made a full length panel...

Easily cools our basement rec room and bedroom

 

I read many reviews before making this purchase and so far have not been disappointed. Our one "problem" that needed to be solved was how to seal off the rest of the basement window that was not covered by the plate w/extension and hoses. We...

Quality item

 

Purchased this AC unit to cool our sunroom ( 14X14) which is also a secondary living-tv room. The unit works well and keeps the room at 75 degrees on a 90 degree day. As some other people have mentioned I had to modify the installation for a 4 foot...

Excellent - would recommend to a friend.

 

We've had this unit for a few weeks now and it does a good job. I'm using it to cool the lower level of a bilevel house and it's keeping it cool. The space is not ideal for the unit, it's located in the family room and then there is a hallway...

Good dehumidifier, bad a/c

 

Once weather got warm the water pan would fill up every 3 hours and turn off in middle of night. Took it back.
