Top Customer Reviews
This model is not expensive (compared to others)
Remote control with three-fan speeds - allows for adjustment without actually getting out of bed
Sturdy plastic window insert (not the flimsy, easily broken ones I've seen on others)
Easily mobile with 4 wheels
Self-contained cooling (doesn't need a drip pan for the A/C)
Easily accessible/cleaned filter
Flexible, compressible but very extendable/long hose
It is rather loud - one can get used to it as 'white noise', but it will take a few nights. And it does wake me up when it switches between fan and A/C when it auto-senses the room temperature.
It is heavy - taking it up and downstairs will be a challenge even with help. And once used as an A/C, you will need to drain the water out of it if you want to move it where you have to tip it at at angle. Otherwise, you will have one heck of a puddle on your carpet.
The outflow grill is manually operated (I've seen some that are remote controlled) - so if you get it wrong and lay down, you'll have to get up and try again.
It takes a while, even at 12,000 BTU, to cool even a bedroom down (granted, mine is upstairs with two exterior west/south facing walls)
You have to remember a drip pan if you want to use the dehumidifier
Expect your energy bill to go up
All in all, between the pros and cons, I am happy with this purchase. It was heavy and I needed help getting up the stairs. Luckily - I never intended for it to move around from room to room. I can't say how effectively it would work to cool an entire house, and I would never recommend ever leaving anything running all day unattended. But if you are considering a light-use A/C portable unit, you would do well to consider reviewing this one.
The unit performs very well, I love my room to be cold at night between 68-70 and this unit does just fine in my 14x16 room. It shuts off automatically when the temp of the room is at where you set it and turns back on when its not. Any water collected inside does not need to be emptied as it recycles all of it before it can get full.
I gave it a 4 star due to the amount of noise it generates. If you are a light sleeper I recommend a less noisy unit as this one is not quiet.
I don't at this point use the window mount. I just exhaust the hot air through a vent in an exterior wall. I also don't draw intake air from outside, so I'm not using the Haier to full efficiency. One of these days I'll create dedicated I/O vents for this. In the meantime, it still works well enough to cool things to a tolerable level in the immediate vicinity of the air outlet (i.e., where I'm working at the moment). This unit is a bit fancy for a garage workshop, but it gets the job done.
The unit came well-packed in 3 layered boxes. UPS managed to drop it somehow, so I let it sit upright for 24hrs before I took it out and turned it on to let the freon and oil re-stabilize. Other than that, it was pretty much an open box(es)- pull off tapes - hook up hoses - and turn on sequence. It took maybe 10 minutes from box to operation.
I can report that this unit cools well for a portable unit and looks attractive. The remote is easy to use and fits in a cubby on the front of the unit. One thing that I don't like is that the remote doesn't work when it's in the cubby because of the directionality of the infrared beam. The build in controls are underneath the remote when it's in the cubby. The solution for me was to just store the remote which i didn't use anyway.
All installation necessities (hoses, window insert, adapters, etc.) were included to set this up according to directions. Since in my garage workshop all I care about is the cooling power, you would be well-advised to read the other reviews if you intend to use this inside the home. Hint: I don't use this at all from September-early June (Las Vegas) so I put Fernco Inc. PQC-106 6-Inch Qwik Caps ($5 as Amazon add-ons at this writing) on the air intake/exhaust to keep dirt, dust, and bugs out of the unit as opposed to covering the entire unit with a trash bag (which also worked fine). I then vacuum the outside of the unit before use.
I like this unit.
