Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bulletproof This is a 100% true statement
I read the reviews on this item prior to buying it. I am quite mechanicaly inclined so I thought the install would be easy, but I had some trouble with the instructions too. I have to say, it was well worth the effort and the cost! Once I got this baby fired up, I enjoyed the next day inside my home. Just in time! It got up to 107F outside on July 4th weekend in EKU Washington, but our new A/C kept it a cool 74F inside the 24'x70' modest poorly insulated double wide trailer! Unbelieveable, I know!

Cools the first floor of a 2 story home (+/- 1400 sq ft) with the help of a ceiling fan. Relatively quiet for a machine this size. NOTE: it takes 2 adults to safely install the A/C in the window sleeve! Price was comparable to other appliance retailers. Energy Star-compliant means fan only runs when cooling is called for, but you can opt out of the default. Did check CU before buying, they do not test A/C's this big, so durability is unknown. At this point so far I would buy another.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Tomaso So far so good
Just installed the unit in time for some hot days here in SoCal, and it seems to be working great so far. It's in the living room with overflow to the kitchen and computer room, and we're all comfortable. I installed it in a new hole in the wall so I did not really need to remove the innards from the metal shell as the instructions indicate - but... since there is packing material inside, I still had to get in there, which was a pain. Yes, it was a bit difficult at first to remove the front cover. The trick is (as the instructions sort-of say) is to press the sides of the metal case in. That releases the plastic latches on the front cover. Easy once you have done it. But sliding the innards out and back in is not fun, especially with just one person, and trying to be careful not to touch the radiator fins.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Greek53 Dimentions in the specs are wrong
The specs said the unit is 23 5/8" but the case of the unit measures 26 1/2" which does not fit my window. I don't know how it works?

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Trin 98degrees outside. comfortable 75 inside.
I'm using this wonderful machine right now. We had an older AC unit that just wasn't cutting it on super hot days. Room size is around 800 sq ft with super high ceilings. Plus,we're on the upper level, so we've always had issues with the cool air flowing down the stairs and leaving us to roast up here.
This AC is great so far. I haven't quite figured out the Energy Saving Setting but with standard cool air on full fan speed it's downright chilly in here! Yay! I have it set at 75 currently... and it's not having any issues! I could set this even colder... but when that compressor kicks on and the cool air flows out, it's quite chilly.
Plus, even though this unit is rated for a huge room - it's quieter then the last unit we had. Awesome AC.
Bring on the summer :D
