This air conditioner arrived in a reasonable time frame but when I took it out of the box, read the directions and then hooked it up, it did not blow any cold air out at all. Furthermore, even if it did, the directions recommend that there be no bends in your exhaust tubing. This limits the amount of windows that you can install it in because the exhaust port is about 18 inches off the floor so you would have to have a low window to comply with that requirement. I put my on a table to raise it up enough to meet this requirement. This A/C unit does not seem very portable and it did not work right out of the box. Furthermore, there is an evaporator that pumps water into your air, This function is available to assist in making your unit more efficient. If you live in a humid environment already, such as the Great Lakes area, this seems like a bad idea. I want to reduce the humidity in my house not add to it. I sent this back and am going to buy a 15000 btu window unit. I don't recommend this unit to anyone.

After thoroughly reading all of the instructions more than once, I installed the air conditioner. It does a fairly decent job cooling down an attic space, although it is a lot louder that I had expected. The manual states that a drainage hose does not need to be installed unless you are using the machine in dry only mode. The unit recycles any moisture to assist in cooling more efficiently. If the reservoir fills, the unit stops and waits to be emptied. I recently began using the unit more frequently because the season has gotten warmer.I wish I had placed the a/c on some sort of tray because I discovered, purely by accident, that water does not accumulate in the reservoir. It drips right through the bottom of the unit and soaks in to the carpet. Water had been soaking into the carpet and floor for days and it eventually made it's way down the interior wall of the room below peeling off all of the paint. I opened seal where a hose would be attached and left the unit running. No water makes its way to that exit, it just pours out of the bottom of the unit. I have since placed the unit in a large plastic tray, placed it on a coffee table and drilled a hole in the bottom of the tray. Under the hole I have a placed a pail to collect water. A fan has been blowing for about a week on the 3 ft round area under where the a/c was located and it is almost dry. Moral of the story: I don't think I will ever buy reconditioned or re-certified again, especially when it is a major appliance such as something like this.

Arrived with two cracks in plastic housing. Very big and clumsy. Doesn't cool very well. Would have returned it but too big for me to handle. Very hot near exhaust tube.

This is a VERY nice and functional unit. It is slimmer than most and stylish....if any a/c unit can be described as stylish. The only point which should be made is the instruction manual Leaves a little to be desired...there is a 6ft plastic condensation hose which I am still not sure is required or not...call LG customer service for explanation. I remain uncertain if it is needed but I attached it to the unit anyways...the unit sits on 4 rolling feet, one was broken off when it arrived and replaced immediately by Overstock. Overall I really love this unit and find it an EXCEPTIONAL bargain as compared to other units..

We have a bonus room above the garage that is ducted with the rest of the house for central A/C and heat, but it is not zoned separately and our central air just was not cooling that room, especially during our HOT Texas summers. The room is about 450 square feet, but has less volume than a typical 450 square foot room because of slanted side walls. This unit is more than adequate to cool the entire room and the enclosed stairway, which is probably another 50 square feet total. We have used it regularly for over a month and have had no trouble at all. The only issue we had was the plastic plate to insert the vent into the window has no insulation, so a lot of heat was coming in there. We added some insulation and it seems to have stopped the heat, thereby allowing the unit to work even better. This was a great purchase, and our first electric bill after getting this unit was much lower than expected; we suspect that is because the central unit wasn't having to work harder to cool that room.

I haven't used this product much yet, but so far I like it. It cools my large living room quickly and it's not amy noisier than a window AC. Set up was more compicated that I hoped for - I had trim the window kit to fit, and there were gaps around it, whch I wa able to seal with some weather stripping. But otherwise I"m happy and would say it's a good unit.

Bean bag chairs contain beans, PVC pellets or expanded polystyrene.
