Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Regret Buying This JUNK! Purchased SoleusAir's portable 12,000 Btu AC/Heat Pump a couple of years ago. The unit's compressor is very loud and generates lots of vibration through the floor. Two years later, the fan now only operates in one speed, the power on/off button must be pressed 4-6 times before the unit turns on. The condensation drain is at the bottom of the unit; so, you must raise the 88 lb unit to allow the fluid to drain. Basically, I wasted my money buying a product from an inexperienced company. I wouldn't recommend buying any SoleusAir product. August 11, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very tepid cooling, lots of water to deal with. Lacks cooling power for an air conditioner. We got it for our bedroom but was unimpressed with it. We ran it for over 48 hours continuously and the lowest temp we ever achieved was 73degrees. Our room is well insulated and average sized (17x12). It also puts out a large amount of condensation than has a chance to overflow and spill onto the floor around the unit. It can be quite hazardous if you don't clean it up. Getting tech support from the manufacturer is also quite a painful experience. Not much good to say about this product. April 17, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible Design So, I will preface this review by saying that, yes, this unit pumps out a TON of cool air, which is what it is supposed to do. However, there is a MAJOR design flaw. There is no "auto" mode for the fan. Yes, you can set the thermostat to the temperature you prefer and it will turn off the A/C compressor. The major problem, though, is that the thermostat does not control the fan. What this means is that you end up having the fan on 100% of the time. This means electrical consumption and noise 100% of the time, not just when you need it. I called Soleus and confirmed that every one of their A/C units has this "feature". I would not have bought the unit if I had known that. August 19, 2010
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not a good product Could not cool my 16x16 room below 75F when outside it was about 80F. Heater is good but AC is not. Also VERY LOUD. Returned for a 14,000 BTU LG. The LG is MUCH better. Will never buy another product made by this company again. April 5, 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by It looks good and has good features. Shipping was excellent. Room 434 sq. ft. Cold air flow from vent was just cool. It ran 24/7. The tempature in the room never got below 80 degrees running for 4 days. Have not had long enough to give complete overall rating. May 1, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Need to cool your place? This is the product! Delivered quickly by UPS. Easy to drag down the hallway, even if you're alone. Did the full installation alone too. 99% of what you need is in the box. Installed quickly and easily. Once running - this thing PURRS like a kitten. Blowing out super cool air with multiple settings. A nice loud rumble kept my girlfriend sleeping through the night even in loud South Beach on Washington Ave. The only missing piece is a small plastic piece of tubing that I bought to drain the unit out the window in case it fills with water (from reading other reviews, I found this may happen and didn't want to ever have to deal with it). Also - the cord isn't too long. Be sure to get a nice extension cord if you have more than 6' to cover after setting it up. Overall - EXACTLY what we're looking for. Narrow, easy to install and blows COLD and HARD! January 24, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good value per price The first one came without any damage from its box, but its electronic controller dead. It could not be turned off or switch to heat or AC once plugged in. Brought it back to nearest home depot for refund so they ordered a second one. HD also gave 10% discount for inconvenient. Second unit came in and worked fine just like advertised. It is powerful, able to handle 500sqft room without too much trouble. October 6, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by The product does not do its job. I purchased a 12000 BTU unit to cool a small room of 135 square feet. The room is enclosed with Low E glass and has 97 percent UV rejection blinds on the windows. The walls have 4-inches of Styrofoam for insulation. The unit does not cool this room below 81 degrees F. I do not recommend anyone purchase this unit for the purposes of cooling a room of any size. It was difficult to install because a 6-inch hole needed to be drilled through the wall to vent the unit. The unit installation instructions does not address this type of installation, only a window installation. I had to pay over $100 to have someone drill this hole for me and install a dryer vent on the outside. August 8, 2013
