My husband and I needed a portable AC unit for our computer room as it it located upstairs in our apartment and the central AC does not efficiently pump cool air to the top floor. It would be like 5-10 degrees hotter upstairs than the rest of the apartment. With our computer room having several computers and electronics, it became unbearably hot in the summer months, and cranking the AC down did not help (it only made the bottom floor colder and the top floor the same temperature). After much messing about with the air ducts/vents to try and 'funnel' the cool air to the top floor, we gave up and ordered this AC unit.This was a good purchase. It was easy to install with some basic tools (needed a hacksaw to trim the window piece to fit) and we also bought some weather stripping foam to create a better seal around the window piece.We have had it running non-stop all summer and most of the fall with no issues. I routinely vacuum the filter in it for maintenance, but other than that it hasn't needed any upkeep.It cools our computer room (about 10'x10') very well with the door closed, and if we leave the door open to the hallway and adjoining bedroom it will also cool those rooms by a few degrees. We haven't really tried cranking it down to anything below 70 degrees, but at 70 degrees it does a great job keeping the first room constantly cool and the adjoining rooms at around 72 degrees.Previously, we would have to crank the AC to 67 degrees and keep it running constantly to get a cool 72 degrees upstairs. Horribly inefficient. This has saved us a bit of money on cooling costs as the downstairs can now be left at a constant 72 degrees and the upstairs is cooled to 72 degrees with the portable unit supplementing the central AC unit.So far, very happy with this purchase and would recommend as a supplemental cooling unit.
So Far I really like this air conditioner, it lives up to its promises, it doesnt leak like another air conditioner I had, that made the claim it reabsorbed the water, and used it for cooling the unit as it worked. Instead it leaked out the bottom from some indeterminate location. This one I am very happy to say doesnt, in fact it has two drain plugs. I tested them out after running the unit for 4 hours on an upper 90 degree day in Seattle, I opened the top drain and had a bowl ready to catch the water, not much water drained out, I opened the lower one a few hours later and the same, not much water. I then ran the unit for another 4 hours with no issues. This unit will automatically shut off if the water gets too full, so you can empty the drains, but so far that hasnt happened, it uses excess water pretty efficiently it seems, the dual hose pipes seems to help this unit work more efficiently too. It cools a 600 square foot room quite well, with the excess cool air leaking into the rest of the 2000 sq foot house keeping it overall cooler.
