At the time of this writing, I've been using this ac unit for about 2 months, and so far, everything is good. It cools my bedroom well, and the exhaust hose is fairly easy to install/remove from the window. It's easy to operate, though I could do without the chiming sound that occurs whenever a button is pressed. There is one bit of confusion regarding the control panel: The instruction manual refers to the 3 buttons in the "Mode" section as "fan", "cool", and "dry", the "dry" mode being for dehumidifying only. However, the control panel on the unit itself has an "auto" mode instead of "dry". Despite my best efforts, I have been unable to determine what this "auto" mode actually does. The ac does indeed engage in "auto" mode, but the temperature selectors do not work; it just seems to be some sort of useless pre-set mode that holds the temp at 72F. Anyway, the "cool" mode works just fine and maintains whatever temp is set using the ac and/or fan. Also, the instruction manual indicates that the temp readout on the unit is for the set temp; however, this isn't true for my unit. The temp readout indicates the room temp, not the set temp. In spite of these discrepancies, the unit is working well, and I do recommend it. It may be a bit loud if you're a light sleeper, but I like some background noise when I sleep, so it suits me fine. If anybody knows or figures out what "auto" mode is truly supposed to do, can you respond to this comment and let me know? Thanks! If I experience any changes with the product, I'll write an update. But as for now, it's a good, effective, easy to use ac unit that will effectively cool a bedroom or perhaps a small rv/camper.
It does not cool down as much as I hoped but it does help a bit. Also they need to give an option to buy a longer exhaust hose for people who do not that many windows in their home. But I did get a really good price on it and free shipping.
Nice portable a/c that does excellent job cooling about 400 Sq ft of space. The only drawback is the huge vent hose which is necessary for this type. Thermostat, quick cooling, wheels for repositioning, quiet even when operating and value priced. A winner.
Really happy with this a/c unit. Easy hook-up, easy controls, 1st power bill wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Ran it for 3 weeks straight! Cools quickly. Sure beats spending thousands on central air. I have a 1200 sq. foot house. Have it installed in kitchen window and I have 1 box fan to circulate the cold air through the house. Love it. Not overly noisy; noise level is just like a window a/c unit.
So far this portable air conditioner is doing a good job of cooling one room - we've had temps in the 90's lately outside. While it doesn't cool as cold as we would like, we do not regret purchasing it. It is easy to maintain and set up. Overall happy with the purchase. Overstock has excellent customer service.
Was originally put off by "refurbished" but I was able to purchase a 3 year warrantee for an additional $** and even with that additional cost was so much less expensive than a brand new unit I decided to take a chance. The two units purchased were delivered exactly on when advised, they were in perfect shape. Free delivery was great as they were quite heavy and I would not have wanted to buy them some place and then have to bring them back on my own. They hooked up very easily. As they are for my office computer room they have been up 24/7 since received a month ago. Working continuously in hot humid weather they have been excellent blowing cold dry air. Only thing when first hooked up they leaked a bit. Pulled quite a bit of water out of the air. Be sure the plug in the back of the unit is securely seated/attached or you can find a river of water as I did one morning. Luckily on linoleum and wiped up without any damage. Again, once I securely seated the plug have had no difficulty since. I am using 2 units in a 5 by 10 room to keep it about 60 degrees and it stays cold and dry. Am sure one unit would have been enough for 68-70 but again this is a business computer room and the system wants constant cold. For this price if it lasts the 3 - years I will be very happy. I definitely would buy again and recommend it to a friend. Have been an overstock buyer for years. As long as you know your prices and what you are looking for Overstock is an excellent source.
