Easy Installation
I bought this unit a little over a month ago, and I just got it installed. I had to hired an electrician to connect the power to it because I had it installed on the other side of the house.

    Very nice unit. I didn't know exactly what I would get but it turned out very good. The one thing I don't understand is that the fan never quits running after it reaching the temperature it was set to like other a/c units. I have had the unit running now for a week and I like the temperature light on the unit housing being lit to let one know what the unit temperature it is set to. The unit is makes the room more appealing and so silent. Very inexpensive. I had little difficulty in installing and except for actually connecting and vacuuming the Freon lines and checking the system. I hired a local a/c business for this and was horrible surprised how much the charge was after I had already did all of the installation. The unit cools and heats very nicely.

      Works Amazing!!
      We are so excited about this for a "four seasons" room that has always been VERY hot in the summer and VERY cold in the winter. We easily set up this system in about an hour and have used it everyday since! Its quiet, looks nice, and its fun to watch the fan move!

          Easy install, quiet
          I finally got to install this unit. All the rain in the past several months delayed construction. I was doing a sunroom addition on our house and a split unit was the best option. I opted to place the indoor unit above the new fireplace so as to not take away from the window space, then I put the condenser unit on the outside on the backside of the fireplace so as not to be seen from the inside. The indoor unit was placed as close to the ceiling as recommended, then was stoned around it with enough room to conduct maintenance. Very quite operation on both indoor and outdoor unit. In fact, most of the time you have to stand where it is blowing to even see if it on. So, I had to put it to the test. On a 95 degree day, I opened all the windows and the door and the unit just adjusted accordingly like it was no problem.

            Works Great in Garage
            We moved my office to the garage last fall and installed this unit for climate control. The garage is attached to our house but there is another garage in between that is not climate controlled so there is no heat or a/c reaching the office. I had no issue keeping my office warm over the cold Ohio winter, even when the temperature dropped into single digits. I wanted to wait until I used the a/c before I reviewed it and it did not disappoint. No issues keeping it cool. I highly recommend.
