Gets the job done
Posted by: Sobayrider from: San Jose, CA on
I purchased this to help cool/ heat a large space. It runs a lot and blows pretty cold air. I have a wall unit with lower btu's (12000) also which seems to perform better then this one but it still works well. It puts out a lot of heat so make sure you duct it out well. HAven't used the heat option yet. Overall I'm happy with it for the price.

Worst Experience Ever!
Posted by: ILSusan from: on
DON'T purchase this! I bought this 14000 BTU unit to cool a 475 sq ft second floor open area. After running it for over 2 hours, the temp in the room increased by 1 degree and it was on the AC setting! The prior owners of my newly purchased house, left a 8000 BTU window unit which did much better at cooling the room, than this unit. It was easy to set up, and it's really nice that it's on wheels.
The unit was shipped on a crate type base and the box goes over the top of it and is secured on with packing straps to keep the box over the base. Unit is very heavy, 100 lbs. My handyman brought it to the 2nd floor for me.
Returning this was an ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE!!!! I called within the 15 days to start the return process. Every time I called everyone was very nice, but I always got a different story. Then USP wouldn't pick it up because there wasn't packing straps on the box to secure the box to the base. Best Buy.com said UPS would have something on their truck to secure the box to the base. That I didn't need to worry, I only needed to have it in the original box. Then was told just to bring it to the Best Buy store to return it. I called 2 local stores and they said I can't return it there because by then it was after the 15 days and I needed to deal with Bestbuy.com. Not to mention, that would have meant I had to carry the 100lb unit all the way to my car! After speaking with over 15 reps and managers, I spent $30 on reinforced packing tape and plastic shipping wrap. I had to find some way to secure the box to the base long enough for it to make it onto the UPS truck.
Never again! This experience might have even made me stop buying from Best Buy as well!

Weak for a 14000 btu
Posted by: Jake from: on
I bought this to cool down my kitchen and my living room. Both rooms are medium size. This unit should have been more then enough for those two rooms, yet it wasn't. This unit may be a 14000 btu but it runs like a 10000 if that.

Best AC I have owned
Posted by: Robert from: on
I previously had an AC unit from Lowe's named IDYLIS. The exhaust blower fan fins pulled away from the fan housing and splintered all out the back of the unit rending the unit inoperable.
This one has superior parts on observation and performed great. It is a dual-hose unit and is much more energy efficient than my last one. It is also much quieter and mixes condensed humidity with exhaust air so you do not have to dump it as often while on AC mode. I live in a tropical area and have used it for over a month without having to dump water at all.

Works for what it does
Posted by: Matt from: on
I put this unit in a large living room about 300 sq ft with 13 foot high ceilings. This room has large bay windows and in the summer can get up above 90 degs. Based on BTU I thought this unit would be over kill but it seems to take quite awhile to get the temperature down to a tolerable level. No matter how long it ran though it never got down to the preset temperature to shut off. Possibly my expectations for this room in these conditions were too high. It's also fairly loud, which is probably to be expected for a floor unit, so trying to watch TV while it's going is nearly impossible. It did, however, do what it was bought for and my previously uninhabitable room was useable again. Possibly a more ideal room in less harsh conditions would allow this unit to fair better.

Easy to set up. Works great
Posted by: Loner from: on
We bought this mostly to cool off our living room dining room area. It works great as long as we block off the doors to the rest of the house. (We just hung a sheet over the doors, doesn't look great but keeps the cool air localized.). It kept the large room between 75-80 degrees when it was 100 degrees outside. Works even better in smaller rooms. It's a little big and clunky to move around to different rooms but not impossible. It was really easy to set up and we had it working in minutes.

Keeping things cool
Posted by: ReviewingisPITA from: Georgia on
Air conditioner cools very well in a large space. Temperature control is accurate. A bit quieter than other models it seems. Have not tried heater option.

I am insanely happy with my new portable AC unit. I highly recommend it to anyone suffering in a hot house. It took me several years to finally buy one and I really wish I hadn't waited so long!!!!

Does the job
Posted by: Dssj1982 from: on
Does the job if you have a way to vent the hot air out. I vented it into the garage and it cooled my basement quick didn't check the heater but I'm positive it would get the job done too.
