I PURCHASED THIS UNIT AT THE END OF SUMMER 2010. SO DIDNT USE TOO MUCH THEN.
NOW SPRING/SUMMER 2011 AND GETTING SOME 80-90 DEGREE DAYS.
THIS MACHINE COOLS OFF A LIVINGROOM, SMALL DINING AREA AND KITCHEN VERY NICELY. ALSO IF I LEAVE WINDOWS CLOSED IN BATH AND 2 BEDROOMS THEY GET COMFORTABLE NOT COLD LIKE LIVING ROOM BUT NOT BAD.AND I LIKE IT COOL. I MIGHT ADD I HAVE NOT HAD TO USE THIS UNIT ON HIGH YET WITH THESE TEMPS SO FAR. ONLY ON LOW OR EXTREMELY HOT, MEDIUM.
PROS: QUICKLY COOLS LARGE AREA. REASONABLY PRICED FOR A LARGE 230V MACHINE.
CONS:COULD USE MORE FLEXIBILITY WITH THE LOUVERS. UP/DOWN - LEFT/RIGHT. A LITTLE NOISY
GOOD MACHINE, GOOD PRICE. ONLY USED THIS SUMMER SO I CANT SAY HOW IT HOLDS UP OVER THE YEARS ONLY TIME WILL TELL.
I purchased this model because it is listed as having a 24 hour timer. There is no timer on it. I had to have an electrician install a dedicated timer for the machine at a significant charge. I never would have purchsed this item if Sears had been responsible enough to check the specifications it claims for the product.
It is just the right size for the room it is in.
So wide, use in many windows is excluded.
poor design. cheap materials. unnecessarily complicated installation.
never buy online until you have seen an item in store. this is a lower priced "bait" that if you saw it in the store you would pass it by for a higher priced a/c.... it cools, but right now i'm waiting on a replacement on/off ****... after only one week.....
<p>WORKS WELL AND IS QUITE. ALSO LOOKS VERY NICE AND A GREAT PRICE</p>
<p> I WOULD RECCOMEND THIS ITEM ,THE ONLY REASON NOT OUTSTANDING IS I WOULD SAY USE IN A SMALLER AREA THEN RECCOMENDED ON THE BOX.</p>
<p>BUT GET FOR A MUCH SMALLER AREA THEN WHAT THEY SAY ON THE BOX</p>
<p> WE GOT FOR IT FOR A 700 SQUARE FOOT AREA AND IT WORKS WELL</p>
Once we turn it on, our kids started jumping for joy ,compared to our old a/c..way. better, hands down..
