WOW I DID EXTENSIVE RESEARCH ON DIFFERENT MODELS AND BRANDS, THEN FINALLY SETTLED ON THIS ONE. I WAS ELATED ON IT'S PERFORMANCE AFTER AN EASY INSTALLATION. TIME INVOLVED WAS ONLY 40 MINUTES. IT MAKES MY 450 FOOT BEDROOM ICE COLD. ONE SUGGESTION IS TO HAVE IT INSTALLED ON A WINDOW THAT ALLOWS LOWER PLACEMENT! YOU WILL BE SO HAPPY ON YOUR PURCHASE!
I own two of these, the first one I bought as an exhaust fan when I had a house gutted and was painting the whole thing with a sprayer. I Put the fan in the window of the main room of the house pushing air out. Then the room I worked in I would open one window. Worked well. I still use that fan 6 years later, it has gotten a bit noisy, but it has been used and abused. I bought a second one for my new home that is a 2 story. Cool spring and fall days / nights I put one in each bedroom up stairs pushing air out. Then I open some windows downstairs. This pulls cool air into the first floor and pushes the hot air up stair out. By the time we go to bed the whole house is cool. I can't sleep if the bedroom is over 70 degrees. These fans have definitely paid for themselves since I don't have run the a/c just to get to sleep. One thing to note, the last fan I ordered had a small piece broken when it arrived. This doesn't affect the way it operates, so I didn't bother with returning it, it works fine.
After doing a lot of searches for portable air conditioners, I found this one and the specs looked good enough. Ordering was fast, set up was super easy, and the air is SUPER cold. It's been running for about a month and we've only changed the water once. A lot of reviewers say it is loud but its no more louder than other air conditioners, not something you would notice if you weren't trying. All in all it's exactly what was needed for an average sized livingroom.
