abunda_amazon_reviews But definitely not 12,000 BTU. My old 10,000 ac cooled my office, bedroom and bathroom. This unit so far has barely cooled my 8 x 8 foot office. I think its over priced but will give it another day to run. UPDATE: Its been running non stop on high for 2 days and it has not cooled my office below 80 degrees. Im very dissapointed and would like a refund. Now I have to go by a another ac. This is garbage. It just blows air around and doesnt cool the room. The advertisement says it will cool a 20x25 ft room. NO WAY. I just wasted a whole weeks pay on this piece of junk.;;Reviewed in the United States on August 25, 2018;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY;;Alexandria Kazarian;;;A great buy! All the negative reviews saying it’s loud and doesn’t cool down their space are crazy and they should look into their insulation on their home. This thing is very quiet! And cools down our 800 sq foot one bedroom apartment quickly, and quietly! We got it on a day that was 107° outside and we set the temp to 74° in our livingroom that was about 80° when started and within about 30 minutes the entire apartment was much cooler, within an hour it was 75° in our bedroom and 73° in livingroom. The thermostat must be off a little but that’s no big deal. I just wish it had an option for the entire unit to turn off when it gets to the set temp, it still runs the fan even after hitting the temp. But again, not a big deal because it cools quicker and cheaper than the central AC! The hose and window kit it comes with can be improved upon a lot. The plastic slide pieces leave good size gaps and the foam insert they provide is super thin so worthless for that. Had to get thicker foam from Ace Hardware instead. The hose is not very flexible at all so the unit does take up a bit of space being so far away from the wall. But because of the filter and air exchange being on the back, it makes sense why you wouldn’t want it to close to the wall to begin with. Overall a great unit and highly recommend it for anyone!;;Reviewed in the United States on May 11, 2020;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Best I’ve owned!;;Dean Cassidy;;;This is the second time I've purchased this unit, the first was a refurb so I thought I'd have better luck with a new unit. Not the case. Just like the refurbished unit, the vent hose does not sit securely on the rear. Any sort of tension with the hose, combined with the heat, causes the vent hose ring to warp and tilt away from the unit, creating a separation gap where the exhaust leaks out. The unit itself isn't able to cool properly because of this fault. If you're needing a portable unit, look elsewhere. It isn't worth the risk. Of the two units of this model that I've purchased both have had the exact same problem.;;Reviewed in the United States on April 26, 2020;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;Leaks exhaust heat;;Derek;;;I’ve had this for about 3 months and I’m happy with my purchase. Background: Spent my whole life without air conditioning. I decided to give this unit a shot. I live in the northeast US where temperatures only rise above 78 degrees 4 months of the year. The heat, with high humidity, has long made getting good sleep in the summer difficult. Fans can only do so much. This unit has made beating the summer heat far more manageable, but it is far from perfect. Which is what I expected. Installation: It comes with the unit (which has wheels), the remote, exhaust hose, window mount, and other little accessories. Hooking the hose to the window mount was difficult to say the least. It is quite top heavy, which made locking the mount in place on my windowsill very difficult. I had to wedge the top of my sill with a rod from keeping it from falling out. It’s certainly not pretty to look at and took some ingenuity on my part to get it to fit. Turning it on was easy. Make sure you use the remote when powering it on/off and adjusting the settings! It only works at full capacity this the remote! Cooling: If you set it up correctly, use the remote, and block off your room (my room is about 20’x10’), it should cool your room down by 10-15 degrees within the hour. If it is in the mid 90s or super humid outside, don’t expect it to get down to the low 70s. From my experience. The way it works is it blows icy cool air out of the machine and into your room, and blows hot air out of your window. It has few different settings, but I keep it on the cool feature and usually set it to 68-71 degrees. I only use it when at home out of unfounded durability and power usage concerns. It smelled a bit funky at first but that seems to have subsided. Sound: This is my biggest issue. It doesn’t sound like a jet engine, but it does indeed produce a loud blowing exhaust sound. The fan setting does not matter. It will only quiet down when when it achieves your target temperature. It was initially very hard to sleep with the noise, but got used to it quickly. Watching tv is the bigger issue, as it roars right over what you are trying to hear. Increasing the volume can only do so much. Found myself using subtitles sometimes, honestly. Overall: If you are in a similar situation to what I was in, give it a shot. It’s not central air, but it gets the job done on a budget. I can’t comment on the power usage or durability. Would it cool down an area larger than a bedroom? No idea. Would it work year round? Wrong guy to ask. But it does provide a nice shelter from the heat in the summer months and makes sleeping at night much easier.;;Reviewed in the United States on August 25, 2019;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Not perfect, but worth it;;Dylan;;;Doesn't cool my room at all. After leaving it on for 2 hours, my room feels hotter than it started. It's blowing very cold air, and pushing out hot air, so I know it's working. There's also no leaks of the hot air. After researching, I found out the problem. Turns out portable ACs have this issue where sucking all the indoor air and pushing it outside creates a vacuum. This vacuum forces outside air to come inside the house through small cracks. So you're effectively opening a window while turning on AC. A proper AC should take outside air to blow heat off the coolant. This avoids a vacuum. Also, wonder why there's 2 BTU ratings? the larger one is on paper, the smaller one is the actual rating, accounting for outside heat drawn from the vacuum (although for me, it completely cancels out the cold air). Buy a window AC, it doesn't have this problem. They're also way more energy efficient, so smaller energy bill. Also easier to return than this huge thing. It's well known that portable ACs have this issue. Only reason companies make it is it looks better than window mounted ACs. update: I just bought a frigidaire 500btu window ac, and it actually works. It's way quieter and less expensive. Since it's such a hassle to return this now, I'll think of something to make it useable (maybe 3d print a mod to make it dual-duct, which would solve the issue and also transform it into its true rating, 12000 btu);;Reviewed in the United States on June 24, 2019;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;Creates a vacuum that sucks in hot air from outside;;davidtriune

Buy a window AC, it doesn't have this problem. They're also way more energy efficient, so smaller energy bill. Also easier to return than this huge thing. It's well known that portable ACs have this issue. Only reason companies make it is it looks better than window mounted ACs. update: I just bought a frigidaire 500btu window ac, and it actually works. It's way quieter and less expensive. Since it's such a hassle to return this now, I'll think of something to make it useable (maybe 3d print a mod to make it dual-duct, which would solve the issue and also transform it into its true rating, 12000 btu)

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY
But definitely not 12,000 BTU. My old 10,000 ac cooled my office, bedroom and bathroom. This unit so far has barely cooled my 8 x 8 foot office. I think its over priced but will give it another day to run. UPDATE: Its been running non stop on high for 2 days and it has not cooled my office below 80 degrees. Im very dissapointed and would like a refund. Now I have to go by a another ac. This is garbage. It just blows air around and doesnt cool the room. The advertisement says it will cool a 20x25 ft room. NO WAY. I just wasted a whole weeks pay on this piece of junk.

Best I’ve owned!
A great buy! All the negative reviews saying it’s loud and doesn’t cool down their space are crazy and they should look into their insulation on their home. This thing is very quiet! And cools down our 800 sq foot one bedroom apartment quickly, and quietly! We got it on a day that was 107° outside and we set the temp to 74° in our livingroom that was about 80° when started and within about 30 minutes the entire apartment was much cooler, within an hour it was 75° in our bedroom and 73° in livingroom. The thermostat must be off a little but that’s no big deal. I just wish it had an option for the entire unit to turn off when it gets to the set temp, it still runs the fan even after hitting the temp. But again, not a big deal because it cools quicker and cheaper than the central AC! The hose and window kit it comes with can be improved upon a lot. The plastic slide pieces leave good size gaps and the foam insert they provide is super thin so worthless for that. Had to get thicker foam from Ace Hardware instead. The hose is not very flexible at all so the unit does take up a bit of space being so far away from the wall. But because of the filter and air exchange being on the back, it makes sense why you wouldn’t want it to close to the wall to begin with. Overall a great unit and highly recommend it for anyone!

Leaks exhaust heat
This is the second time I've purchased this unit, the first was a refurb so I thought I'd have better luck with a new unit. Not the case. Just like the refurbished unit, the vent hose does not sit securely on the rear. Any sort of tension with the hose, combined with the heat, causes the vent hose ring to warp and tilt away from the unit, creating a separation gap where the exhaust leaks out. The unit itself isn't able to cool properly because of this fault. If you're needing a portable unit, look elsewhere. It isn't worth the risk. Of the two units of this model that I've purchased both have had the exact same problem.

Not perfect, but worth it
I’ve had this for about 3 months and I’m happy with my purchase. Background: Spent my whole life without air conditioning. I decided to give this unit a shot. I live in the northeast US where temperatures only rise above 78 degrees 4 months of the year. The heat, with high humidity, has long made getting good sleep in the summer difficult. Fans can only do so much. This unit has made beating the summer heat far more manageable, but it is far from perfect. Which is what I expected. Installation: It comes with the unit (which has wheels), the remote, exhaust hose, window mount, and other little accessories. Hooking the hose to the window mount was difficult to say the least. It is quite top heavy, which made locking the mount in place on my windowsill very difficult. I had to wedge the top of my sill with a rod from keeping it from falling out. It’s certainly not pretty to look at and took some ingenuity on my part to get it to fit. Turning it on was easy. Make sure you use the remote when powering it on/off and adjusting the settings! It only works at full capacity this the remote! Cooling: If you set it up correctly, use the remote, and block off your room (my room is about 20’x10’), it should cool your room down by 10-15 degrees within the hour. If it is in the mid 90s or super humid outside, don’t expect it to get down to the low 70s. From my experience. The way it works is it blows icy cool air out of the machine and into your room, and blows hot air out of your window. It has few different settings, but I keep it on the cool feature and usually set it to 68-71 degrees. I only use it when at home out of unfounded durability and power usage concerns. It smelled a bit funky at first but that seems to have subsided. Sound: This is my biggest issue. It doesn’t sound like a jet engine, but it does indeed produce a loud blowing exhaust sound. The fan setting does not matter. It will only quiet down when when it achieves your target temperature. It was initially very hard to sleep with the noise, but got used to it quickly. Watching tv is the bigger issue, as it roars right over what you are trying to hear. Increasing the volume can only do so much. Found myself using subtitles sometimes, honestly. Overall: If you are in a similar situation to what I was in, give it a shot. It’s not central air, but it gets the job done on a budget. I can’t comment on the power usage or durability. Would it cool down an area larger than a bedroom? No idea. Would it work year round? Wrong guy to ask. But it does provide a nice shelter from the heat in the summer months and makes sleeping at night much easier.

Creates a vacuum that sucks in hot air from outside
Doesn't cool my room at all. After leaving it on for 2 hours, my room feels hotter than it started. It's blowing very cold air, and pushing out hot air, so I know it's working. There's also no leaks of the hot air. After researching, I found out the problem. Turns out portable ACs have this issue where sucking all the indoor air and pushing it outside creates a vacuum. This vacuum forces outside air to come inside the house through small cracks. So you're effectively opening a window while turning on AC. A proper AC should take outside air to blow heat off the coolant. This avoids a vacuum. Also, wonder why there's 2 BTU ratings? the larger one is on paper, the smaller one is the actual rating, accounting for outside heat drawn from the vacuum (although for me, it completely cancels out the cold air). Buy a window AC, it doesn't have this problem. They're also way more energy efficient, so smaller energy bill. Also easier to return than this huge thing.
