The unit provides easy-to-use electronic controls and a convenient 12-hour on/off timer that makes it easy too cool the living room before arriving home from work or for keeping the bedroom at a perfect sleeping temperature then turning off on its own in the morning. Choose from three cool settings and three fan speeds. A full-function remote control comes included for changing the settings from across the room. The A/C unit also offers a dehumidification mode that removes excess moisture from the air, which helps prevent mold in the home.

I bought this A/C in late May, in preparation for the long, hot Albuquerque summer. You see, I have several computers running in my apartment office, and this approach seemed cheaper than others, including freezing the entire family like I did last summer. When I got the A/C it ran fine, but I had to modify the sliding window to accept the exhaust. Plexiglass worked, no major issues.
Two months after I got this (while out of town of course) my wife a daughter were awakened by the A/C, which was vibrating and "walking" across the office floor. They unplugged it and cranked the A/C to full in the apartment (and froze in the process). I called the HAIER warranty number when I got home. At first, the nearest appointment I could get for "repair" was over two weeks away, but after a lot of complaining, I got an appointment the next day, August 2nd.
The repair guy showed up on the 2nd, wrote down the parts that he said the unit needed (totaling far more than what I paid for the A/C), and promised delivery of the parts and the repair by the 18th of August. This is the 19th, and still no parts, still no repair.
If you buy ANYTHING HAIER, don't expect even PASSABLE service it it breaks. I could wait no longer, so I bought a Soleus unit that was cheaper, quieter, better looking, smaller, lighter, and better made. Even the slide window adapter fit with no extra work.
I can say I'm very happy with this one. While I would not begin to say this is whisper quiet by any means, it is more quiet than any other one I have heard. Much of the noise is the fan, turn on the ac portion adds only a little more noise than the fan on it's own. The fan itself blow very hard, which is good to cool your room, but does make a decent amount of noise, but at least you don't have that noisy compressor turning off an on, and clunking and rattling around...
This also gets very cold, which I love. I had a Kenmore ac that on it's lowest setting regardless of the outside temperature, it was barely cool. Even on a fairly cool day I couldn't feel much cooling, this one really keeps up. Best AC I have ever purchased, and looks better than many others.
Fortunately there are two collapsible 5 ft (1.5 M) tubes/hoses--one for air intake and one for heat & humidity exhaust. Note: one tube portable ac units are much less efficient than this Haier and draw hot, outside air in thru cracks or openings somewhere in your home or apartment. They also take longer to cool than this two hose ac. Haier did it right with this product. One improvement needed is a 24 hour timer instead of the 12 hr one at present.
If it is very humid often (59% INside!) this Haier unit may occasionally require draining from a plug in the back near the bottom into a flat pan. I usually wheel the unit on its easily movable casters to the top of stairs; then, put a pan on the next step down; untwist the drain plug and let the water fill the pan. Otherwise, you need to use a flat, two inch high pan to collect the water. Although we have 88%+ humidity here in the Northeast, my draining of the water has been usually limited to at the end of the season. Some humidity does blow out the exhaust hose. One thing: the window adapter fits windows up to 36 inches. One of my windows is 38" which means I have to fill in the extra space with cardboard or foam. The D.I.Y.'er might get some longer plastic, heat-bend it and make it fit better. We have double-hung windows (lift up &/or pull top one down) with screens & storm windows (insulates somewhat in winter). I set the window adapter with snap-on/off hoses to blow through the screen. It adds some security as the storm window is locked in place above the screen opening. You should put a bolt locking device (see locksmith or hardware store) above or beside the opening to prevent a thief from opening your window from the outside. It should be instantly openable in case of fire and need to escape.
Don't expect a portable AC to do as well as an in the window or wall unit. 12,000 btu portable AC = about 8,000 btu in a window/wall Air Conditioner (by experience). And, it will not get as cold. Although I measured the temperature (digitally) coming out of the unit at 61 degrees F (16 degrees C) it will not make the air in the room as cold as a regular air conditioner. The heater setting for the cooler or cold winter isn't worth the money. Better is a $20.00 ceramic heater with fan from one of the stores or Amazon. I don't use the built-in heater as it doesn't produce much heat and is noisier than the ceramic one. The unit has a setting to use alone as a dehumidifier, However, a separate 40+ pint (19+ liter) a day dehumidifier is a better choice. I use one of those in our basement with a 15 foot garden hose attached to the drain plug. Without a dehumidifier things get mildew, smelly and moldy with 70% humidity. A word to the wise!
If you live in some dry areas of the country, a "Swamp Cooler" (love that name) is the item for you. It cools by evaporation of water and adds the humidity to the air. Others may prefer a central air conditioner with the addition of an in-room humidifier for those desert areas of the country. Remember that a humidifier in the winter (used October thru May, in Northeast USA) prevents dry & cracked skin, cracked wooden furniture, needless coughing. And, if you get a cold/flu or pneumonia, it makes it much easier on your lungs, pain, energy [coughing lowers energy], let alone skin. A humidifier even helps keep a piano in tune longer. Add a air purifier with fan & filter for best results. Those ozone units are bad for your health; but, that is another review to write! The Haier remote works fine, although its buttons aren't clearly labeled as to what each does. Save your owner's manual in a zip bag. At the end of the season remove the hoses and cover your Haier with a large plastic bag to keep the dust off/out. Hope that helps you.
