Cooooooler days

Fricken sweet air conditioner unit guys. Very easy setup and works great right away. Would love to see someday a unit that can also dehumidify while cooling.

Wonderful Unit

I am in an older home that the upstairs is greatly influenced by the temp outside. I bought this back in March to prep for the summer as my office is upstairs. I bought a bigger unit that what I needed for my room in an effort to help keep the remainder of the area cool as well. This thing really does the job. Ice cold air and the circulation that gets created by the moving lip for the fan is nice. It has not been super hot yet here in Illinois but the days that it has warmed up, this unit was able to know my room down to about 68 from being about 75-80 in around 10 mins. Installation was really easy, be ready to cut down the window bracket though. I had to cut off a good 6-8 inches to have no blockage for it at its shortest state. Unless you somehow have a window that is fits it at the smallest point. Coping saw made quick work of this. The hose is nice and long albeit a little stiff for positioning. After that, took about 20 mins to get it nice and sealed. I think the constant drip hose is a must have, at least in my area. The unit is heavy enough that the drip pan included is going to be a bit of a pain to use, especially on carpet, and it accumulates enough water that you are better off just using the included hose and a bucket. The remote is nice, you have to be sure you are pointing it directly at the unit though. It seems that if you aren't, it will not detect it and the second it does, it will go to the setting on the remote. Example: Unit is set at 70 and you try to lower it to 68, it doesn't detect it, you adjust and hit down 2 more times, the remote is saying 66 so the unit goes to 66. Not a big deal, but pay attention otherwise you might freeze yourself out. I love this unit so far and would buy another if we needed it. Really really nice machine after about 6 weeks of having it.

Great Portable Air Conditioner

This is a nice unit that puts out a lot of cold air for the size. The remote and control panel are easy to read and understand. Its nice looking and easy to mover around on its wheels. Hooking the exhaust up and placing it in a window was super easy. I cant say that it has worked very hard as I have only used it once April in Michigan, but I have high hopes that it will handle a hot and humid summer.

What about ventilation?
Portable ACs use either a single hose or dual hose design. In cooling mode, single hose PACs remove hot air from the room, and then expel the hot air out the one hose. In cooling mode, dual hose PACs bring in air from outside through one hose, and expels warm air outside through the second hose. In both cases cold air in cooling mode flows through the unit's vents into the room.
Are there certain types of windows that are not suitable for PACs?
Casement windows are quite unique in design and functionality so PACs do not have window kits that can completely cover the gap for these types of specialty windows.
Can I leave the window screen in during installation?
The screen may not interfere with installation, but for better releasing of hot air out the window, it is better to remove the screen.
How do I know how many BTUs are required to cool my space?
A BTU (British Thermal Unit) is a standard unit of energy that measures the amount of heat per hour an air conditioner removes from a room. The larger the room, the higher the BTU requirement. Below, are some general guidelines. However other factors – such as the number of open doorways, a south-facing window with continuous sunlight, or a room with high occupancy – can require a unit with a higher BTU rating than the average guidelines.

Room Size in sq. ft. BTU

  • 350      8,000
  • 450      10,000
  • 550      12,000
  • 700      14,000
  • 1,000   18,000
