It is blistering here up in the NE. Can't take it and neither can this air conditioner. The product is oversized and hard to move around but that could easily be overlooked if it cooled well. The inside temps hit about 85 degrees and this unit was sputtering and could not keep up. I guess the compressor finally failed and it just stopped blowing cold air. One week of use and total disappointment. Cannot and will not recommend this item.

I run this all day long in my 350sf office and it never brings the temp down more than about 2 degrees. It is definitely blowing cold air, it just can't keep up. So I am assuming the heat gain from my office it too great for this unit to overwhelm.

I liked this unit and found that it did a great job of cooling. It ran efficiently and quietly. Unfortunately, its' BTU was not enough to cool the space for which I bought it. The attic space I was trying to cool was just too hot for the unit. If I left the unit on all night and made it really cold during the night, I was then able to keep the attic space cool during the day (in temperatures of 100+ degrees Fahrenheit.!) I will probably have to go with a 24,000 BTU unit. Fortunately for me, Overstock allowed me to return the unit, which was amazing to me. I highly recommend this unit and found that you just can't go wrong buying from Overstock.
I did a lot of research before buying a portable AC. We have high ceiling, no insulation in a room that was an addition. The AC cools well even though our room is not contained. Even with all these conditions is lowers the temp at least 5-10 degrees. I am sure it would work great in contained room. Haven't got the power bill yet. We'll see. Overall satisfied.
