Use for Heating only


I keep one upstairs near the stairs (easier to drain) and one downstairs. I have a 2-story 3 bedroom home in nortwest Maryland built in 1923. It is not insulated and this is by far the cheapest method of heating. These things are very efficient. The...

I bought this baby for heating purposes three years ago and it is still going strong. My electric bill using heat was $500+ / MTH to heat an old house. If I ran oil it was $550 / MTH. I can heat the whole house using two of these units at about $235 /...

When tank fills, you will need to drain water. Some people use the drip pan and come home to wet floors, I for one just keep it plugged until it tells me it is full and then drain. I have never had a wet floor doing this ; It is large, heavy, and...

Good unit


Bottom line very happy with the unit and a great buy on Newegg after you look at the other online sites prices.

Unit does a super job of cooling a over the garage bonus room of over 300 square ft. It has great options and I think the unit does what it should. Newegg shipped the unit in 3 days as promised

The unit is a little loud and has to be located in a way that it is away from the wall making it in the way

Solid Purchase


Works better than Customer Service describes. Has to drain continuously or it shuts down frequently until you empty the water. To do this, it must be on a stand. The hoses are cumbersome and the window air intake and exhaust are worthless as they are...

Soleus 14,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner & Heater w/ Dual Hose


Efficient, quiet and easy to use. Sets up quickly and does a good job cooling the family room to tolerable levels when outside temps reach mid 90's and higher. The dual hose feature is a must.

3rd Soleus Unit


We live in a 2bdrm condo that doesn't allow anything hanging out of the window. Years ago, we bought our first Soleus 12,000btu 2 hose unit for our bedroom with heat that worked well. Then we bought a second unit for the living room. Both these two...

Two Years of Thumbs up


For us to explain how great this unit is, its important to mention in what an awful situation we placed it in. We bought this unit because we lived in perhaps one of the worst conditions possible due to our jobs, in a town where there is zero...

LX-140 Great Buy


Installation straight forward - the hardest part is attaching the ducting to the 'screw-on' ducting mounts. The unit is much quieter than my wife's floor standing, oscillating fan. We have a large master bed room and the unit cools it no problem. Temp...

Soleus 14,000 BTU Portable Air & Heater


I recommend this product over all. One issue however would be the window adapter for connecting the intake and exhaust vents to window. This was not well done at all. It is made apparently for a giant industrial window not for a normal window found in...

Meets the need


Havent had the hot weather yet but it runs fine and quiet. It arrived on time well packaged and with easy to follow Instructions. We don't have suitable window or door so I attached the window vent panel to the wall inside so the hoses can clip on, and...
