exhaust hose

    Works well, exhaust hose lacking

    Had this for a month now and it keeps small house cool. Rarely had it on high fan speed as low or medium works well enough. My only complaint is the exhaust hose piece that goes in your window is poorly designed. I have to tape it in the window because the plate is not wide enough for my 30" window after having to cut out for the exhaust piece. I am working on a better way to do it.

    I've been using this in my bedroom which is less than 450 sq ft and, while it has made the room more comfortable, it is still unable to keep up when the temperature gets over 90. The exhaust hose seems to be quite leaky.

    It does the job and cools the room when its over 80. It is a little loud, but that has to be expected. It claims portability, but the hose connected to the window really makes that misleading.

    This is a good deal and puts out nice cool air for a decent price. If using it as a dehumidifier, make sure you buy a drain hose to run outside. The reservoir is small and will shut down the machine fairly quickly without a drain hose.

    It covers my whole room. Makes it bearable to survive when it gets really hot. Also helps circulate in the room. I'm able to sleep during the day and night. Love that there's a timer and cooling and fan options. A little hard to assemble the hose but other than that, it was perfect. So far so good

    We paid $1200 to replace all of our exterior air conditioners. We felt they took away from the appearance of our home only to have A useless R2-D2 looking piece of junk with a huge hose that goes across the room to the window sitting in each room. One of ours sits under our thermostat. It tells us the temperature is 61, the thermostat says, 80 We believe our thermostat! I hate to write reviews I'm the type of person who feels oh well it didn't work, shame on me. I don't make a big thing about it, but these have been so disappointing! So If I can stop someone from wasting their money who doesn't have the money to waste, I hope this helps. We have put in our old air conditioners, only two rooms we gave the rest away UGH!

    Read about this problem AFTER I bought it and had the same problem! the unit stops shortly after starting B/C the (small? @@@@@@@ reservoir fills up in less than an hour! ran it three times thinking maybe I had it on dehumidifier (dry) mode but I didn't! regular AC mode does it. hooked up a hose to it (as shown in directions) and had same problem B/C the hose filled with water and the unit doesn't push the water up the hose and out either! poorly designed product! too bad! taking it back for a different brand now....

    I have been impressed with this unit so far. It quickly cools my large bedroom and the coolness spills out into the hallway. It's neat how when you turn it on the fan blades open up. It's not quiet but it's a portable a/c unit. . I bought it to make my room cool. It has 1 hose that goes to the window and the plastic pieces that come with it are fairly long. Almost long enough to fit my tall oversized window. Set up was really easy. I like having a remote so I can set a timer or turn it off without going over to the unit. Overall I'm happy with this purchase, and the price is a good, a lot less expensive than other models. I recommend this one.
