Looks like the vent is open all the time and does not pop up. Is that correct? It also means that I can't stack thing on top of the unit when it isn't turned on.
Asked by: Middle
you are correct - that vent is fixed in the position you see it and does not move or come off. You will not be able to stack anything with any weight on top of the unit while storing. I can tell you that these units work great - we have a very large home and are using 4 across 2600sqft with no issues.

Home Depot had this product on sale for about $100 off and I could not pass it up. I work nights and need a cool, dark bedroom during the day that is secluded from the wife/kids. I use this product in an upstairs bedroom where I sleep - this room is generally much warmer than the downstairs portion of the house. The product worked well during our unseasonably extended warm winter in CA. It's a little noisy, but that's to be expected. I took the advice of some other users of this product and outfitted the exhaust hose with an insulation sleeve. I also have this air conditioner sitting on an elevated surface due to the limited length of the hoses. The overall setup was easy. I used the extenders on the window kit due to the size of my window. I also applied some weather stripping over the seams of the window kit. Hoping for outstanding performance during the summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much more efficient than our old portable units and quieter too! Having used portable air conditioners for many years now felt it was time to upgrade. Not just because they were getting old but wanted something more efficient, less electricity and a bit more cooling power. After doing much research finally settled on this unit. Wanted to try it first so we only got the one to begin with. The unit itself was simple to put together, really the only thing to deal with of note the window slider piece and the two hoses. I didn’t need any instructions especially having owned this type of air conditioner. In fact I put my boy, 12 to the task and had it up and running cold air in just 15 minutes. We have it placed in the TV/Rec room, 20’x20’ or 400 sq. feet. It has absolutely no problem cooling that space whatsoever. This is a dual hose system. Important to know for several reasons. One hose is dedicated to exhaust the heat from both the air and that produced by the unit itself. That is the same be it a one or two hose system. The other hose is an intake hose. You do NOT have to use it per the manufacturer. So why use it? A lot of sellers talk about “back pressure” but that is not what we cared about at all. We wanted the ability to pull in cool air at night as well as to bring in clean air and not just recycle the same inside air over and over. There are more reasons too, live in for example AZ, NV, TX it might well be better to use it as a single hose unit during daylight hours and only use the intake when it gets below say 95F. You can always use both all the time I just try to save on electricity is all. *NOTE for those new to portables you cannot use this or any other air conditioner for that matter unless you vent the heat out. Using the intake hose optional, the exhaust required always. As for electricity this unit uses 3/4 what our old units do, did. The standardized system to rate electrical usage is the EER scale. A rating of 10 is considered to be very good. This unit scored an EER of 11.0 no less. I found nothing else out there that could beat it. Just swapping out the one old unit chopped $30 off our avg monthly electric bill. FYI it uses a standard wall plug and draws 10.8 amps no need for anything electrical to be done. As for sound it is so much quieter than either our old soleus or Frigidaire, granted both are going on 8 years old. Used to have crank up the television to near max volume but not with this unit. It is stated to have a noise level on high of 56db which is basically the level of noise from box fan. A nice unexpected bonus no doubt. We typically don’t have much in terms of humidity but even on those few days with dew points in the low 60’sF not a problem. The unit does a good job exhausting out all the water vapor so no leaks, containers to dump or drain. Having used this unit now for several months we will be replacing the other old unit we have with this exact same model as the first impressed us that much.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poorly Designed Controls Installation is straight forward but had to trim the window fixture, not a big deal. Does not need to be drained often due to "fan mode" evaporating most of the water through the exhaust. But it has several serious flaws: 1st, it does not go into power saving mode, will never shut off on it's own. 2nd, the remote needs to taken out and pointed at the unit to pick up signal, does not have physical buttons on the unit itself. 3rd, confusing functions which have symbols and not actually labelled. 4th, when set to auto mode, for some reason it doesn't let you set the temperature... Kinda defeats the point of having an AC?? Overall, it's a great double hose unit, but I would recommend getting an AC with physical buttons. Side note: At no point does the air outside come into your house. The intake only cools the compressor while the exhaust blows out heated air cause by heat exchange. This does not create a positive air flow, but rather not a negative airflow like single hose units do. Dual hose units are FAR SUPERIOR to single hose units due to this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Energy Efficient, very Quiet and Cool Great! I have another portable A/c unit with only a single hose and it just does cool things down plus I hate having to always empty the tank. I wish I knew before that a dual hose a/c unit is the ONLY way to go. Google dual hose a/c verse single hose a/c for how it works. But trust me when I say DONT bother getting a single hose they don't work! This unit is the best DUAL hose one I have bought it is quiet and as auto drain or you can hook up a standard garden hose to the drain on the back if it is really humid so you never have to worry about draining a tank again.
