First a little info about portable ACs, then I will review the Haier 8000 BTU.

No portable will EVER match a window AC of the same BTU, so if you have the option to install a window unit, you should do so. A window unit will be cooler and use less power. Here is why:

A single hose unit means the hose will exhaust hot air thru the hose. But it needs an intake source of air - the intake will be from the room itself - so you are taking the air that you just cooled and exhausting it out the window.

Next, the exhaust hose itself as noted by other reviewers, gets very hot. As hot as a radiator in the winter.

And the AC unit itself gets hot - the portables have the entire unit inside the room so it is heating up the room. Window units have the working parts outside of the room so they don't heat up the room anywhere as much.

So now you are heating the room as well as dumping cold air out the exhaust.

This is why a portable can never be as efficient as a window unit. I think you would need at least twice the BTUs of a window unit to get the same cooling power. I think the manufacturer's of the portables give you a theoretical BTU rating - but with the issues of exhausting cooled air and heat generated by the unit and from the exhaust - you will never get the theoretical BTUs.

This is true for all single hose portables. Dual hose portables will be more efficient (good luck finding an inexpensive one), but still not as efficient as window units as they still have the issue of the exhaust hose emitting heat into the room. Putting insulation around the exhaust hose will help. But please do not use pink fiberglass wall insulation - it's not very healthy for you if it is not completely sealed off - ie inside a wall.

Verified Purchase
I was in the market for a new air conditioner for my 12x15 bedroom, and upon reading the other customer reviews was sure that for the size, BTU, and price the Haier CPRB08XCJ 8000 was going to be the right fit for my needs. Upon setup and as I began using the product I ran into several issues.

The first was that the directions on setup and installation were unclear, even for such a seemingly simple process.

Secondly, while the air conditioner is said to cool a room up to 250-300 sq feet, it was struggling to cover my 180. And while it does seem to do a better job at dehumidifying than cooling, the amount of drainage from the collected water is unmanageable. The product was said to be mostly self-evaporating with a reservoir tank that will hold the excess. I was aware that the unit may need occasional drainage. I however am unable to run the unit for more than 3-4 hours before the tank is full and shuts itself off completely. Since I am using this in my bedroom there is no convenient way to drain the tank without either completely detaching it from its window fittings and rolling it into my bathroom, or allowing it to drain into pots or pans and carrying them to the kitchen sink. The other night, while I was sleeping, I attempted to just allow the unit to drain as it cooled into a spare aluminum casserole pan but the amount of water was so great that halfway through the night it had already begun overflowing. I'm going to try to find some rubber hose to fit to the drainage spout to put out my window, but without elevating the incredibly heavy unit I cant see how it will ever truly drain efficiently. I could forgive this extra inconvenience if the unit was effectively cooling my small room, but it is all around lackluster.

I was looking for a good, small, and cheap portable unit to install upstairs in my gameroom, HOA does not allow for window units. This unit preforms fairly well for its size. It does not have a water collection bin through you must drain it through a hose, but I have a central unit that removes alot of the humidity.

The installation was fairly easy except for a few small problems, it comes with 4 tiny screws that are supposed to attach the exhaust hose to the window spacer, but they where not long enough, I had to use 4 tiny bolts and washers instead.

When installing it remember to keep the exhaust hose as straight as possible any bends reduce efficiency. Also I bought some insulating wrap form home depot and covered the exhaust hose. I used a temp gun and saw that the exhaust hose had a temp form 95-110 degrees. The window insert they give you is a joke also you should install some insulation around it also.

I have two LG 9,000's for the bigger rooms which I LOVE but needed one a bit smaller for my babies room (the central AC is horrible at cooling upstairs!), so we got this one the other day and it is perfect. You don't need to drain it so I don't know what the previous review was talking about. It is self - evaporating and uses it's own water cond. to cool itself. The window mount it much better then my LG's too. It's a very stylish and a small box AC that works wonderful and keeps me less stressed at night worrying about the comfort of my 18 month old at night. I have a thermostat reading in my room that tells me the temp in his room and this AC keep it exactly at what I wanted it to. Love it so far and recommend for sure!
