Portable air conditioners (at least ones with only one connection), blow a lot of hot air out the vent which makes the room cooler. Nice, stating the obvious. But what I didn't think about was how that process would create a negative pressure in my apartment. Air will stream into the room through whatever means possible, and depending on what that is, it can completely undo the cooling of the AC. When I set this up in my kitchen, I let it run continuously for about 3 hours and it wasn't really doing anything. Then I realized that it was sucking air down the chimney of my furnace to counteract the pressure. So that location was a no go.
I moved it to the bedroom and had more success, but again my building is old and the door had a lot of gaps around where air came in. I fixed up some of these and thought, ok now this is going to keep it nice in here. But then I realized that I made it worse because the air was coming in through the ductwork, which was even hotter air than the chimney. I was trying to encourage it to pull air from my stairwell because it was significantly cooler on the lower levels, but that proved impossible. So now I crack a window in my living room and this has proved to be the best setup for me. Far from ideal though.
My entire apartment is less than 500 square feet but this unit can only handle cooling about 100 square feet of it (I got the 8k model). And even then unfortunately it just takes the edge off. The thermostat goes down to 67 degrees but with weather around 85 to 95 degrees outside, I can only get it down to 80 in the bedroom. The actual air flowing from the machine is about 70 degrees but it doesn't mix very well around the room. I'm also using blackout curtains and a fan for circulation. I do realize that my circumstances probably have a lot to do with this because I get all the heat rising from the apartments below me and I probably have poor insulation. I was really disappointed by this because it's the main reason I bought the thing.
So after all those negatives, how about some positives? I haven't had any issues with leaking or the tank filling up. It's been about two months and I haven't had to empty it yet. It also was easy to attach the vent to the window, although I reinforced the tubing connections with tape. I suspect if I hadn't, every time I slightly moved the unit it would pop out of the window. The unit is very easy to roll around to another room, but it would be annoying to move the vent setup.
It seems "portable" is a bit of a misnomer. It is pretty heavy, and I had trouble getting it upstairs by myself when I first ordered it. It was very well packaged with easy directions. The remote seems unnecessary but works well from short distances when it's directed at the unit. Some people complained about the noise in these reviews, but I don't think it's that bad. I kind of like the white noise when I'm sleeping anyway. I had to turn the TV up a couple more clicks, but I don't think it's a big deal. Some of the window units are incredibly loud.
The best positive, and why I haven't sought other solutions, is the electricity usage. Even having it on almost every afternoon last month, my electric only was about 5 dollars higher. I have used it almost constantly this month so I'm sure this bill will be worse but I suspect it'll still be less than 25 bucks different. That is mind blowing to me, having regularly had bills that got $150 higher in the summer in the last place I lived, which had central AC, and I didn't even keep the thermostat that low.
Sorry for the rambling. To summarize...
*No manslaughtered neighbors
*Great electric bill
*Easy to install alone
*Accurate thermostat instead of 'low'/'high' nonsense
*Rarely need to empty tank
*Easily rolls around on casters
*Also can be used as a dehumidifier (although I have not used that setting)
*Negative air pressure creates potential drama, depending on your conditions
*Only works in a very small area
*Has trouble keeping entire room one temperature
*Even working at its hardest on very hot days, can't keep up
*Heavy to lift if required
*Bulky and occupies a significant amount of floor space
My verdict would be that it probably would be a good buy for someone trying to supplement other AC, but it hasn't worked very well as my sole cooling agent. Hope this helps someone, thanks for reading it.
Update: April 8, 2019
The a/c still runs great. I’ve used it a few times for a few hours and I’ve used it for 2 weeks straight without turning it off. The a/c works. BUT! If you live in a humid area DO NOT PURCHASE THIS UNIT!! The dehumidifier DOES NOT WORK! I had to unplug the unit, take it outside and manually tilt it over left and right for the water to come out. And there was a lot. My room stays at a normal 65% humidity thank you very much (not). That’s with three damp rid hangers and a mini thermoelectric dehumidifier. I have the exhaust hose going directly outside so my room stays really cold. BUT, HUMID. I live in Florida so I was excited when I saw this unit dehumidifies. That’s a lie. Oh also, I had to open the unit to clean the inside, it was pretty filthy, but was definitely really easy to open and maintain. A/c runs great. I recommend cleaning the unit from the inside for optimal performance
