Great unit, easy to use and works well for the upstairs bedroom which doesn't cool well on those hot summer evenings. I like the fact that it came fully assembled and ready to use. Setting up the back vent through the window was easy and the unit even looks good in the bedroom. All in all, I'm extremely happy with the Shinco Air Conditioner.
The unit was set up and ready to go right out of the box. We had an issue with insufficient temperature drop initially. We did what we dreaded to rectify this: knocked a hole in the block wall and ducted the exhaust air to the outdoors through insulated flexible ducting. The result was almost immediate: a 12-13 degree drop in temp in minutes. If you have a small room, and a standard 8 ft. ceiling, plan on ducting the exhaust outside. You'll waste a lot less time than we did!
I got this 18500 Frigidaire to replace a 24 year old 24000 btu unit. So far it working good, but just put it in after the last heat wave. I hope it does the job. By the way this was put through the wall, as I called Frigidaire and they said it can go through the wall also.
