Product Description

Product Description

Want supplemental cooling that won't block your view? Do you live in an apartment building that doesn't allow for window air conditioners? For any scenario, the De'Longhi Pinguino Portable Air Conditioner with 12,000 BTUs is the ideal solution. Don't suffer in the heat, simply roll the Pinguino into any room and place it near a window and outlet. Plug it in, slide in the window bracket, attach the hose and turn it on. There are no tools required! Not only is it simple to set up, but you will also save money with plenty of energy-efficient features such as eco-friendly refrigerant gas and an adjustable thermostat. The convenient 24-hour programmable timer allows you to set it only for the time you need cooling. With most portable air conditioner units, you need to continuously empty excess condensation from a bucket. But with Pinguino's "no drip" technology, the unit automatically recylces the condensation so you never have to empty a bucket again! Other highlights include 3 fan speeds, auto fan function and easy-to-use digital controls with LED display and remote.

I purchased this unit through Amazon several months ago, and am glad I did. No more suffering through the intense summer heat in a one bedroom, non air conditioned apartment.

The unit itself is relatively easy to set up. As my unit was shipped via Fed-ex, I had to initially let it sit upright, non-operating, for a day in order for the refrigerant fluid to settle and prevent damage. Other than that, you simply plug in the unit, connect the collapsible vent hose from the unit to the window (via window adapter), and turn it on. It takes less than 5 minutes to cool my living room to my preferred comfort temperature (about 75 degrees inside while high 80's/90's outside).

In over 2 months of use, I opened the drain plug only once, and there were only a few small drips of liquid that came out. The evaporate cooling technology worked great for me, and those who have had issues with leaks in the Pinguino models must have had defective units.

Regardless of what unit you buy, don't settle for anything less than 12,000 BTU's for a portable AC. 14,000 BTU's would be better for larger rooms and houses.

I do have a few issues with this unit. One, as Pflorky mentions, is that the vent only blows air upwards at an angle. It would have been nice to be able to change the direction of air flow. The second is that the unit can be a bit noisy, necessitating raising the volume of the television by several points. I don't think it's so loud that it will make you deaf, but it can be noticeable. This is a minor quibble, as I would rather be cool and comfortable than suffering and miserable from the heat.

Last, depending on the style and size of your window you choose to vent from, you may need to 'jury rig' something to properly vent the unit.

By M. Lewis on June 17, 2012
Bought locally (though I normally love Amazon). I have a 20x20 garage, 400 sq feet. This portable A/C is cooling the garage nicely. Initially, just testing it, I vented it through a hole I made in the concrete block wall. It didn't seem to be cooling very well. Some of the heat from the vent hose was not making it out the new hole, but escaping into my garage. I didin't want to put much effort into the hole until I felt like this A/C would be worth my time. I fretted, and considered it. Then I decided to go ahead and make a proper whole, sealed, with the dryer-vent-flap on the outside of the garage - now no hot air is escaping from the vent into the garage - all the hot air is going outside - professional looking job I think. Whalla. I like this A/C. You have to wrap insulation around the vent hose since it gets hot and will just radiate that heat into your room. We have an insullated ceiling and an insulated garage door. Hot southern USA. We use our garage sometimes for crafting and similar activities... this A/C will do nicely. Yes, I've only had it for 24 hours, but... happy

The unit works well.

It's easy to install.

It would be better, however, if the airflow could be adjusted up and down. Otherwise the air flows in one direction, and change can only be effected by moving the machine.

It is very easy to install and it does cool our master bedroom very well, but it is so noisy. The noise when the compressor kicks on is my only complaint. We have had this unit in our bedroom for about a year and never any water problems. Only the noise.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I live in the Pacific NW, where our weather tends to be fairly moderate most of the time. Still, we get several days during the summer when the temps rise above 80-85 F, and since the vast majority of homes do NOT have central air, we learn to rely on some combination of fans, small window units, or, finally, heading to the mall in order to stay comfortable. I'd been considering investing in a one-room air conditioner, so I'd have one room where I could cool off when needed. I was offered the opportunity to review this, and I jumped at the chance.

First the pros:
I chose to set this up in my bedroom, a room about 16' x 18'. It isn't that difficult to set up, really. I'm older with limited mobility, so it did take a little effort to get it into position. Based on other reviews, I had a neighbor help me lift it into a large plastic tray in case there were leaks. Getting the window set up for this was no problem at all. The directions are very clear, and my windows aren't complicated (regular sash windows). I set it next to a corner window and had everything connected within 30 minutes.

I waited 24 hrs before turning it on to give everything a chance to settle (directions say to wait 6 hrs). No problems at all; it started cooling immediately. I set the temp to 70 degrees for the first trial; the room temperature was about 83 at that time. In just over an hour, it had reached the preset temp. Totally acceptable results.

It's quiet -- about the same volume as my oscillating fan set on high. That may be too noisy for some, but it's totally OK for me. The remote works fine, no problems at all.

Finally, the filter can be washed -- very convenient, easy to get to. Operationally, this is a nicely designed unit.
