    Industrial unit works but loud and leaky

    My neighbors started to adjust their lifestyles to accommodate this machine. One of them planted a small garden next to the exhaust port. It's loud and the vibrations shake the apartment complex. It also squirts water on your carpet no way of getting around that. I wouldnt recommend it except maybe for a large garage or basement but it draws enough current to through a normal house breaker. Whynter customer support actually told me not to use the exhaust hose when using the dehumidifier because it doesnt need to intake and exhaust. That made so much sense to me that I returned the item. For most people there are better options on the market for 1/3rd the price. You've been warned.

    Puts off enough heat for my whole basement. Warning pulls more than 5 gallons of water a day which is a good thing but the water has to go somewhere. I have a large plastic container and I raised unit up off floor and gravity does rest. But have to empty constantly. Ordered second one for garage overkill for a 2 car but I'll be chilling and my Corvettes won't get moldy. Connecticut weather is always too hot/cold Unit was assembled plugged in and one hose to window

    I first put this in a small workroom that was about 20x11. No problems there. I then tried it out in my larger bedroom which was about 28x16. Also did a nice job cooling the room down to about 73F in less than hour. I reckon external temperature was closer to 88-92 degrees. It passed my first test and after about 2 weeks of use, I still have not had to drain it. I run it close to 5 hours daily. Seems like a legit cooling machine.

    Keeps Us Cool

    This portable a.c. is fantastic. It's been keeping our house cool all summer. Cools about 500 square feet effectively. We haven't tried the heater part of it yet. It is a little bulky if you don't have much space, but I'll gladly trade the room to keep our house cool.

    This unit cooled my small bedroom very easily. It didn't need to kick on incessantly through the night. Worked perfectly for those hot summer nights!
