The specs say NO drain collection is provided. Is that a mistake? All the other units have a drain for those few times that you'd need to drain water.
Asked by: Steve
The unit has a built in drain pan which has a drain plug on the backside of the unit. The problem is the pan is small and you're constantly pulling the plug to drain the unit. I finally took the plug off, installed a tube, and ran it to where I could let the tube drain freely Don't be discouraged by this. It's a great product for heating and cooling. I use it in my garage to keep my dogs comfortable A+++ rating!!

Customer Reviews

14,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner with Dehumidifier, Heat and Remote is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good purchase the front panel broke when I removed it from the box. I fixed it with hot glue. so be careful when unboxing it. the blower doesn't blow as hard as I would like for it to. the window exhaust kit takes more effort to assemble correctly than I'd like for it to. but it is a good unit. my studies on the internet say that it is top of the line. btw, it is amazing how not loud this thing is. the customer support is very helpful and they have people that speak ENGLISH as a primary language. big thumbs up for that! catch this unit when it is on sell for less than 500 dollars. fyi, this thing will make the lights flicker when the compressor kicks on. the caster make for easy moving around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased Been using this unit for about a month and very pleased. OFF-ON memory is smart. If you must turn the unit OFF then back ON, all the settings will be the same as before. Very convenient. Checked water plug in back of unit weekly. Not a drop of water to be drained. Filter installation diagram is a bit confusing, but after trial and error figured it out. Filters easy to remove and clean. After removing and washing, filters will be completely dry in about 10 minutes. NOTE: Check unit amperage and your home electrical system before buying. Adding the unit to an older home on a 15 amp circuit breaker may be problematic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bought this unit in 2012 My bedroom is 11X12 and it doesn't keep my room cool. I have called customer service because the heater cut off after 1-2 minutes and usually does come back on. The customer service rep told me to remove one of the hoses and use the cover cap to cover up the hole. It actually worked for 2 days but after that it went back to cutting off in 1-2 minutes. It has NEVER cool my room; just made it a "little" comfortable. The heating part NEVER warm my room.(even when it was staying on). It is bigger than most portable unit and has a higher BTU so I really thought it would work well. It cools poorly and heats badly. All in all I wished I had picked another unit. I would not recommend this unit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very efficient at cooling We got ours one week ago and have not used the heater function, but it cools very effectively. We bought it for a bedroom of about 275 sf that suffers the scorching sun of West Central Florida all day. After setting it up, it cooled that room from 83 degrees F to 76 degrees F in about 20 minutes. We gave it 5 stars as it cools excellently. However, there are things about it that we feel will help others. Some reviewers here and different sites indicated that it was loud. How loud, what my question at the time. This is by no means scientific, but relatively speaking it is no louder than most window units or a maybe a big stand up fan. The loudest it gets of course is when the compressor is running. Neither of us has lost sleep from the sound, but everyone is different. One thing that did keep up us was the LED readout. It's pretty bright and there is no function to dim it. We had to jury rig something to cover it up. One suggestion I would impart and wish I had known this, when the unit arrives take the package of screws provided with the unit and go purchase new ones of better quality. I don't know what it is with Chinese hardware but their metals are quite often soft and cheap and the screw heads can easily strip out if one is not super careful. You're likely better off going to the hardware store, paying a bit more and changing out what comes with the unit. Might want to buy some weather stripping for the window component while you're there. The window component is on the lame side. It's really thin plastic and rather ill fitting in a vinyl window. We had to close the gaps with weather stripping. Also, it does not remain in the window well while you are setting it up in the window. Ours would have fallen out the the ground two stories below had it not been for the screen. Other than that, the thing is overall pretty fast and easy to set up. We love how it cools and the unit is pretty sharp looking too. Moves around easily as well. For the dough, however, they could upgrade the 'little things', like make the window component out of better plastic and improve the design, give one some decent hardware at the get-go, and have a means to dim or cover that bright LED.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good buy -- Strongly recommended This unit was purchased for use in an attached two-car garage located in south Texas. The garage has a fully finished interior with insulated garage doors (stryofoam), no less than R-21 in the outer wall, and R-30 in the attic space above the garage. Prior to purchasing this unit, it was not uncommon to have the interior temperature in the garage at 95+ degrees, largely due to two east-facing garage doors. (As mentioned, these doors are insulated with sytrofoam inserts.) Now, on the hottest days, the interior temperate never exceeds 85 (which is more than tolerable in South Texas!). This unit is attractive, appears to be energy efficient (nice SEER and kw/hr ratings), is reasonably quiet, and very easy to install or move/remove as needed. Again, most importantly, it cools my 450 square feet garage very well. Hope this helps you in your decision.
