Works very well, but is definitely bulky!

I purchased the unit on Amazon during a sale, so I got an excellent deal already. The unit works very well, once it catches up and begins cooling. I like that there is a standard-sized garden hose diameter threading on it to remove excess water automatically, however I wish there was a smaller sized catcher that came with it instead of just a plug and manual draining. Having the remote is a nice feature, though I don't use it very often due to the location of our unit. There is a nifty storage slot for the remote, which is excellent for keeping track of it! Overall, the unit is very powerful and feature-filled enough for my needs! The circular piece that sits between the vent plastic and the exhaust tube has a broken tab on it though...it's not the most durable thing ever. It also would be nice if the included vent plastic window piece could have been translucent instead of opaque, but now I'm nitpicking! The unit's footprint is small enough for easy enough storage under my eaves upstairs, which is great! I just wrapped it in the bag it came in and let it be for the winter.

Works Great!

Bought one for our second home and it worked great! Three weeks later bought another one for the upstairs. I especially like that it did not make my electric bill go sky high. Proud owner of two!

Hook up the garden hose!!!!

|

In the operating instructions page 9 - Cooling mode - it only says "In this mode the exhaust adaptor hose MUST be used" but does not mention the garden hose. Unless you are using the dehumidifying mode the garden hose would not be needed - according to the drainage section on page 10. WELL..... waking up to dripping at 2 a.m. with a lot of water all over the table top we had the unit on and the floor surrounding .... I think there must have been a misprint. That was a bit upsetting to say the least BUT on a good note - once that problem was discovered and fixed we still like the unit. It cools our area very well and is not noisy. We had lived in an apartment at one point and that small wall unit was much much louder. Would recommend this unit but make sure you hook up the garden hose immediately!!!

User Unfriendly

This unit is labor intensive, messy, and damaging to furniture and flooring! It puts out a lot of water which must be collected and discarded...how? Use a garden hose out the window, but it doesn't gravity feed water uphill, so you would have to get the unit up higher than the windowsill. Drain it into a bucket, and babysit the unit to empty the bucket every couple of hours...not to mention that it drips at the hose connection like a garden hose does!

okay unit

|

It does cool. Has a condensate connection above ground level. Handy because most units like this don't. Allows easier hookup of a hose to drain outside or into a bucket where you collect it to empty manually or with an automatic condensate pump to move it elsewhere. Keep an eye on the second drain all the way at the bottom. The flimsy rubber cover for it was knocked off when moving the unit to a different location. Resulted in very wet carpet. On a good note, once fixed, it sucked all the moisture out of the room and the carpet in 8 hours. Beware, the unit does shut itself OFF when left alone. I keep coming back to find it has yet once again shut itself off. Not good when I'm trying to keep the temperature down when I'm not there to monitor the room. It uses room air to cool the condensation coils so it sucks the nice cool air of the room out. Would not work for sealed rooms where you don't want to suck in 100+ deg air into the room.

Works Well

I have had this unit all summer now and it works every bit as well as the window unit it replaced. The biggest plus is that I do not have to pick it up!
