Caused Mold

Jnhickm1 10/7/2016

I bought this less than a year ago and its already infested with mold because the unit does not drain water. So when I spotted mold all over my unit after having it less than a year I looked at the back of the unit and there was a large amount of standing water and gunk. It was a nightmare to try to clean and I was so frustrated. The unit worked fine I was just very displeased with the design.

Doing a great job

Shocky1353 9/15/2016

We bought this unit to replace the exact same unit minus the air clean option that had only lasted a couple of years and died in the middle of summer. I didnt have time to shop around and the big box store up the street had them in stock so I bought one and had it going in a couple of hours. Its doing the same great job in cooling our 600 sq ft living room its predecessor did. I havent found out how the air clean mode works I just keep it selected. Great unit when its working. Hoping for a little longer life on this one. To be honest I ran the other one 24/7/365 in cool and on this one I switch it to econo at nights and back to cool during the day so it might have an easier life.

Ice cold...when its not frozen

Sjhigdon 8/11/2016

I bought this for my room because my family and I often fight over the temp of the house. This thing gets really cold and cools the room off quickly. I have it set on the Eco mode and it come on for 15-30 seconds and then turns back off. The love the remote sensor for the temp in the room. The bad thing about this unit is that it keeps freezing up. Ill wake up hot as blazes just to realize that its frozen. Ill turn it off and let it thaw and once I turn it back on it just freezes right back up. Now I will admit that I like it colder then most people and that could possibly be the reason it keeps freezing but if you offer a temp on a unit then it should be able to successfully achieve that temp.

dean83 7/14/2016

I bought this about a month ago and am using it to cool down a large bedroom with cathedral ceiling. I used to have a 14000 BTU unit and this one cools even better. The economizer works well as does the timer and we especially like the remote sensor which takes into account the temperature of the part of the room we are in at the time.

Decent A/C

Ash062018 7/13/2016

I was actually expecting a little more umph when I bought this ac but it does its job. Its loud even when set up properly and econ mode can be pretty difficult to listen to when you are sleeping. I generally just leave it on cool all night because otherwise econ will have it turning off and on all night long which causes me to wake up when it happens. The thermostat on the remote is not necessarily accurate either so it is best to just set it at a specific temp and let it run its course. This is perfect for a medium to large bedroom which is where I have this. It is also in an upstairs bedroom. This is a heavy unit which would require two people to situate and put in. Also be sure to situate the side panels prior to putting it in the window because it has to be done properly or the panels will come loose. It is fine for the money and does an adequate job cooling in WV although Im not too sure how it would do in lower in the US. Nice clean and easy to read screen and remote.

Overall an excellent AC

satfrat 7/13/2016

As far as cooling capacity excellent. Its the best AC Ive ever had considering Im a retired GE employee who has only owned GE ACs.Installing was a breeze and I especially the lightness of this unit. The 1 prpblem I do have is with the Air Vent System. There are 3 settings both on the conditioner and in the manual. But in the illustrated explanation of each setting all 3 pictures look the same so heres no way to know for sure which setting is which when pulling the knob out to its 3 settings. Oh and I do love all the bells whistles that make this conditioner unique. A lotta ZC for the money

Its fine.

eac1778 10/4/2015

Im not a huge air conditioner user Im always the chilly one but knowing the high temps and humidity that were coming this summer I knew I needed an air conditioner for my rental apt. This a/c unit works fine. The size price and BTUs were what I needed. I think its kind of loud. And its constantly going off/on with the energy saver setting and its really noticeable because when its on you really hear it so the back and forth of it going off/on is pretty noticeable. It cools of my living room well and between the a/c and the floor fan in my bedroom Im comfortable my apt is approx 800 sq ft. For most people this might not be enough but I didnt want an a/c unit in my bedroom as it would be blowing directly at my bed and I wouldnt like that.

Great remote

deb4661 9/25/2015

Wonderful workhorse for the summer months. Easy to clean filter. Almost as noisy as my previous 18 yr old machine but the noise was soothing for sleep. Good price. Lost the remote within the first 2 weeks a replacement was pricey but worth it. Machine can be operated by touch buttons or remote. The remote has wonderful buttons. Once you memorize which one is which using the remote in the middle of the night is easy. Remote is a good size.
