Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by auntie Easy to operate.
I ordered the unit at my local sore and it was delivered when promised. I was able to install the unit myself without help from my husband. The directions were clear and easy to follow. I got the unit just before a CT heat wave and it is working as discribed and promised. I have every reason to believe it will heat in the winter as well as it is cooling in the summer. Over all this has been a good experience for us.

As a senior adult I have seen much & purchased plenty! This portable fast cooling unit is a real gem! My 58 year old niece installed it for me since I have cancer. It was so easy for her & wow can I enjoy my sunroom finally! Love this cool fresh air!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SoCalDave portable AC unit
Decent sized unit. The packaging makes it easy to roll around, really not much assembly required other than connecting the 2 hoses (intake/exhaust) to the back of the unit and to the pieces that go in the window. Double hung setup seems like the easiest to do. Cooling is very good and noticeable quickly. The compressor is a bit loud when on (the fans alone are relatively quiet) but given a choice between being hot and comfortable, I'll take the slightly elevated noise level. System will easily cool down a room in the 200sq ft size and will cool down the advertised size in about an hour or so. I'd buy it again. Have not used the heater function yet so the review is just for the AC portion.

Got it out of the box and let it sit upright overnight as recommended. Hooked it up, turned it on. Compressor and fan are working but it is blowing 84 degree air out. Called Customer Service. No help. Taking it back to the store.

This works well. My issues with is are the fact that it never shuts off. It is always going, which means a large electric bill! however i knew that it would hurt the pocket book when i got it. it doe well for my 100 sq.ft. room (i got over kill because there were too many complaints of smaller ones not being able to handle it.)
Installation was fine, i have the exhaust vent going through a wall not a window, so it was a bit more difficult then most but still fairly easy for a handy guy. it seems that a window installation would be simple, they have a great video online (generic) that gives all the detail you should need.
all in all, just know what you are buying. its loud, its big, it kills electricity, but it works!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by andy Drain Hose Required
Unit AC worked fine, but you will need a drain hose. Unit ran 4 hours in non-humid conditions and unit shut off. Drain plug is at bottom of unit and near impossible to reach. You will have to undo the hoses & connections (cheap) to move the unit to drain. Worthless set up. Oh, and as for heat. Per the manual, it will not work below 45 F so not much for helping with heat.

Read the fine print!!! The heating unit will not work if the outside temperature is below 41 F. Could have bought something that actually heated and cooled for a lot less.

I purchased this unit to convert my garage into an embroidery studio. The unit easily vented through the garage door and disconnects if and when I need to open the door. It cooled the space down in about 10-15 minutes when the front of the garage was in the direct late afternoon sun. Its no more noisy than a regular AC window unit when it is on full fan. The lower fan setting is hardly noticeable. Haven't had to use the heat function yet but I am encouraged that it will be equally as efficient. I am thrilled with it so far.
