Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KJSAND Well engineered AC
We purchased this Avallon air conditioner for use at home.
Assembly was quick and effortless and the built in misting setup to evacuate the excess water in the reservoir is a nice touch,separate intake and exhaust ducting and the handy remote are all great features.
Unlike cheaper units that we've seen this Avallon unit is well engineered and should last a long trouble free time.
We've used it several times already and it works AWESOME!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Barry Cools Great, Heats Good.
Mine shipped without the piece that goes in the window. HD support took care of that for me in just a couple of days. Unit has worked fine for the last year and not having to empty the water tank is great.
The only issue is the remote has gone bad which is what brought me here today. I was trying to find out when I had purchased the unit to see what the warranty is. Home Depot says its 5 years but that is only the compressor. Everything else is only a year including the remote. You can't make any changes once the remote fails. The unit just stays on what its last setting was. There are no controls on the unit itself just an on/off button for the unit and another on/off button for the lights on the front.
If Avalon comes thru on the remote then I will update my review but as of now I wouldn't recommend the unit just for the simple fact that there is no way to control the unit once the remote fails.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wayne Strong A/C
This portable a/c really does the job. Currently, it's installed in a 15x22 room with high ceilings and cools very quickly to 68 degrees. Located in Central Ohio, our heat can be really hot with high humidity.
It's fairly quiet, and it does a good job removing moisture without the need to empty the holding tank. We are utilizing the mister that is included with the unit. Although, I've never seen any water expelled from it.
A little expensive, but worth the extra money.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Retired09 Great Air Conditioner but Poor Heater
First of all keep in mind that up to 40% of all portable air conditioners are returned to the store because they fail to live up to expectations. That said, the air conditioning part of this product worked great for me. But one of the reasons I selected this particular model was because it was also supposed to perform as a heater. Unfortunately it wasn't until after the return period that I discovered the heating portion of this is laughable. Not in the Owners Manual, but in the fine print online did they state this product is intended to provide "supplemental heat only" since it does not work when the outside temperature gets below 61 degrees F. What kind of heater only works above 61 degrees? What a rip off. I still rated it three stars because in an industry of woefully deficient portable air conditioners, this one was far superior to the other two I took back.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mm Blow's a lot of hot air!
I rated the product at fair because it did blow out great hot air. The unit's was stuck in the heat position and would not switch out of it to cool. My brother and I both called the manufacture several time, after hold for 10-15 minutes got sent to a voice mail that said "leave a message they will call you back in 24 hours". That was 2 weeks ago still no call's back. I returned the unit to Home Depot and they refunded my money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Barry It may be too expensive for what you get. Works ok but will not freeze you out.
It really does not freeze me out like I was hoping.
I have it in a little bigger than average master bedroom and it keeps it cool but not COLD.
LOVE LOVE LOVE the fact that I do not have to empty out the water at all so far. To my knowledge The spray has never come on to empty the tank. Make sure you use the correct flex discharge hose with the hole in it cut out for the sprayer hose to feed into.
ALSO, In the part box you will find two batteries the remote is attached to the top of the unit.
The down side is the directional louvers, they do not allow for too much variation in air flow.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Engineer Works as advertised....almost.
PAC works well as A/C and to a lesser extent the heater. The only problem I have is that the de humidifying mode seems to work when the water drop shows on the remote but the front panel light
is GREEN instead of YELLOW. Green is fan only mode. There is no way to set the desired humidity level either?? It is a well built unit and low dB in all modes. I just wonder about this dehumidifying mode. Will it run until it completely drys the air to zero moisture???

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wa234 Avallon APAC140HC Portable air conditioner.
Very easy to assemble, and it works as I expected. I am using it in my three car garage, which is over its rated square footage, but it removes the Florida humidity, and makes it comfortable for me to putter in the garage on very hot and humid days.
