Customer Questions & Answers

Do you have to empty wTer

Asked by: Nancy
It does have a holding tank inside the a/c unit, but occasionally you will have to drain it. I just wheel it over to my shower unscrew the cap and tip it and water will run out.

Do you have a portable ventless a/c unit. One that does not require venting to outside?

I have a small sun room with vinyl windows and would like to put in a small room unit with no vents.
Asked by: honeyB
The laws of physics state that you cannot simply have something that eliminates heat but does not transfer it anywhere. Every device that consumes electricity, such as the motor in the a/c unit, gives off heat as it runs, so that heat must go somewhere. The cooling coils in the A/C unit must be kept cool, so the heat that is pulled out of the coils must also go somewhere. Window and "outside" units keep all of that heat outdoors. Portable units cannot, so they (single hose units) draw in air from the room and exhaust it out the hose that must be directed out through a window. If you leave the output inside the room you're trying to cool, you will quickly heat the room so that it's hotter than it was before. Also, single-hose units draw the air from the room to exhaust out the window, which sounds great until you realize that it has to pull hot air into the room from somewhere else or the room would be in a vacuum. So you are adding very hot air from outside the room into the room you are trying to cool, just so the a/c unit can cool it off too! Eventually the other rooms will be drawing in hot air from outside which will make them hotter than they were before. If you must have one of these, get a two-hose unit, which will draw the air from outside to cool off the coils and compressor, but the slightest leak in the hoses will leave you worse off than you were before. Read what Consumer Reports says about these and then decide. They are very inefficient no matter what you do, so buy carefully and make sure you can return the unit if you are not happy.

How is the exhaust hose hooked up?

I plan to use this in 160sf storage shed. I am just trying to picture how the exhaust hose vents to outside. Thanks
Asked by: Countrygirl
IF YOU Have a window it is SIMPLE. THe parts include window slider-Kit that is adjustable and the Manual isvery coherent. The only problem is the Window adaptor 'B"connector that the hose fits on does NOT accurately 'SCREW' On so You may have to supply Tape over the connectot and hose. If No window than purchase a DRYER VENT install same and omit adapter 'B"; Just slide hose over vent.. This Unit placed in main part house and cools excellently three plus rooms comfortably even around the hallway. I have purchased(Different Makes), many of these Portable air units,(7) over the years and Installed all myself; HOWEVER this unit the difficulty NOT being able to screw action hose to both ends either adapter B or Filter end in ANNOYING. I did Call the company as the filters were missing and original adaptors missing/broken. They sent immediately via Fedex and received within 2 days. THe area I am Cooling is approximately five hundred sq ft+ hallway & another room = additional 260 sq.ft.

Does it require a 220 line

Asked by: Terri
no but it requires a lot of power @ 120v. if you have are running this from a 15 amp breaker... there is not much else you can put on that breaker or it will pop. Also keep in mind the vent hose has to be 6 inches or greater... if you try to use anything less then 6 inches to extend the vent tube, or restrict the vent tube the machine will over heat, not make cool air and probably end up blowing a breaker... They might sell 220/230 volt versions of this... but i am now aware of such from the depot.

Customer Reviews

8,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 76.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, efficient, & cost-effective product! Set-up was easy for the most part. Other folks here have said the AC is noisy, true (a little) but I'd rather have a very cool/chill room than a hot one any day or evening. I don't have to empty out excess water & my electric bill isn't as high as with my previous older AC portable unit. It's true that the air flow is vast, from one end of the room to the other. The price was right for this product & it's worth a lot more...I would definitely purchase another unit (for the same purchase price). Thank you for making such an excellent, durable product. I am a very happy customer indeed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too poorly made to even turn on This unit has to vent to the outside to function properly. There is 6" diameter tube that's supposed to attach at one end to the ac unit, and at the other end to an adapter piece that fits in the the window. The attachment pieces are so poorly designed they won't connect to the tube. The instructions are completely useless; don't even show what's supposed to happen to make it work. They just say to attach it all together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well We have a sun room off the back of the house. Even though we have a central a/c vent in that room it wasn't enough to cool the room with 4 sliding windows and a glass back door letting the sun beat into the room. So we bought this little unit to see if it would do the job of cooling that room. It works extremely well even on the hottest Florida days.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to connect hoses, Not much output for a big room. The hose connection to the window piece is not easy. For a 200 sq ft room, we had to augment with a floor fan to move the cool air around, but it could not lower the temp much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good basic low cost unit Bought with the purpose of a low cost temporary A/C source in an enclosed patio room here in south Florida that faces to the West and the setting sun. Many reviews critiques the connections; I would say you need to read the instruction and study the connections first. Make the connections from the hose to the window plate out of the window, the slots are tight and challenging, but provide a good connection if done right. As far as the critiques of the hose falling out, I would say they are not being "screwed" on far enough; again, connect the hose to each connectors (window and A/C unit) first and screw them on till they won't go any farther. I have my unit sitting in the corner of the patio and in a couple of minutes, I've opened the window and closed it on the window sliding plate and I'm ready to go. Granted, it's not sealed around the window sliding plate like my other "permanent" portable A/C unit in my bedroom; but I'll accept that since it's purpose is temporary when needed. I've never had the hose disconnect from the units, window or the two connectors they're screwed into. Good basic unit at a low cost.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tried 2 units, stopped cooling I ordered this unit for my garage and went ahead and installed an exhaust hose and outlet and a drain line through the exterior brick wall. First unit cooled for about a day and then just blew air out the same temperature of the room. Thought I got a dud. Had to box up and take to the local home depot and the return took about 15-20 minutes. I got the second one in and it worked few a few days and then I just put an infrared thermometer on the front and it is blowing air out that is 94 degrees. About to return it and try something else.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So So A/C I can't compare this with any other room or portable A/C, since it's the only one I've every had. However, for what it's worth: The output temp isn't as cold as I'd have expected for an 8000 BTU unit The instructions couldn't possibly have been worse. The writers couldn't possibly have ever seen the unit. Example. The vent hose actually screws into the unit and into the window fixture. You find that out yourself. The vent that exhausts hot air thru the window has no hood so you can count on rain running into the vent hose. Also the grill, which should keep out small pests will stop squirrels but anything smaller slips right through. I bought a 5" vent cover from Amazon which does the trick. Costs $15.00 which I shouldn't have had to spend. Finally, the sliding fitting which adapts the hose to the window has one segment where a lip is on the outside. Perfect rain trap. Makes you wonder if the maker actually looked at what they did. The jury is really still out on performance
