Pros....does not have to be vented from a window.....if you don't mind cutting a hole in an exterior wall. Portable. Seems well made
Cons....bulky, only moderate cooling ability, takes up more room than I was expecting, noisier than I was hoping for.
I bought mine about a month ago and experienced poor performance based on the extremely poor "documentation and instruction manual".
The instructions are totally incomplete so I write this review to help unhappy owners understand the actual operation of the unit compared to the instructions. New buyers should review many customer ratings on the web. None of these portable units gets good ratings from owners.
1/ The front panel displays a temperature reading. Let's say 80°. This is not the temperature of the room, or the temperature of the output air being pumped into the room, but instead the temperature of the outside air being sucked in thru the inlet hose to cool the condenser. The inlet hose is "cold" to the touch if compared to the outlet hose which will be quite warm. I believe that most folks that buy this unit are assuming that it is the room temperature and get annoyed when it sits at 80° for hours. The room is dehumidified and the actual temperature in the room is from my experience, at least 5° cooler than the displayed 80°. I discovered this by utilizing an external thermometer to measure the actual room temp. As the outside air temp drops after the sun goes down, the displayed temperature starts to drop and it looks like the unit is "finally" starting to cool. I have an outside thermometer and I noticed that the outside temperature and the displayed temperature are always the same. If the display drops one degree, the outside air temp has dropped one degree also.
2/ Delay-start is not explained anywhere in the manual, but I downloaded the Wynter manual and it explained how to set the delayed-start. With power off, press the timer button (has clock symbol on it). That wakes the machine up, so you can set the delay-start time just as you set the run-time timer. You can also set the desired temperature for the delayed start operation. After a few minutes the machine goes back to sleep.
3/ "Sleep-mode" is nothing more than an automatic few degrees increase of the temperature you set at start time. Lets say you set unit for 75°. Then set for sleep mode. After a few hours, the unit will increase your setting to 78°.
4/ I don't believe the drain hose is 1/4 inch. I think it is 3/8" although the fitting is metric. Thin walled 3/8" hose is hard to find on a roll in a hardware store. You only need a few feet. Home Depot has it in prepackaged 10 foot pieces. About $10.
5/ Customer service sucks. They nor the manufacturer ever answer their phones. Send an email requesting the part number and cost of replacement filters and the response is almost immediate. Obviously, both Wynter and EdgeStar operate on thin staffing or just don't care. That's the latest in American business practice. Ignore customers so they will give great reviews or will buy more of your product. Yep, that should work.
6/ If you do a little searching on the web, you will find "sizing" charts for these portable units. Most only consider the room size in square feet. This can be very misleading. You will find sizing charts that consider the number of people in the room (each person produces 600 BTU, large screen TVs can easily produce 800 BTUs, and any lighting (incandescent) can produce hundreds of BTUs too. So if you have a room with one TV and one lamp with two adults, you need over 2000 BTUs. This means that your 14,000 BTU units (this one) is actually only providing 12,000 BTUs for cooling of the rest of the room as walls and floor. Additionally, sunlight through a window or patio door at 3:00 PM can provide more heat into your room than this unit can remove. It can take hours to cool the walls and floor if you have baked the room in the afternoon sun.
Cooling an un-insulated garage shop is probably not possible with 14,000 BTUs trying to cool sun heated walls.
14,000 BTUs sounds like a lot of cooling until you understand what is putting the heat into your room. Don't blame the manufacturer because you didn't size your cooling needs correctly. Square feet of room area is only one consideration for sizing the BTU heat removal needs. I guess most of the complaints are due to not considering the effects of heat produced by humans even at rest and TVs and lamps. Don't forget the dog either.
