I purchased 2 of these and both behave exactly as the following, so i'm pretty confident this review is accurate:
The only setback is it takes a while to actually cool the room once turned on, there is a label on it that says, please wait 5 minutes for cooling to begin after turning on. This time is more like 30 minutes before it actually starts to affect the rooms temperature. We use these each in 2 different ~250 square foot rooms and that behavior holds true in both scenarios. After about that 30 minute mark, it certainly cools the room, even in 85 degree outside temperatures. I have had 10,000BTU window AC units begin cooling much faster than this in the past, but the portable ac design sacrifices some performance for the extra functionality.
There are likely stronger models out there, but again, value wise, this hits the mark.
It is important to note that while it is a "portable" ac, it is very difficult to carry. It does come with some good casters so you can roll it, but even with the 2 nice handles on the side, it still weighs about 45 pounds. With its dimensions, there's no way my wife could carry it up a flight of stairs. There are many smaller units out there that may not pump out as much, but if you need to move it regularly, keep this in mind before you buy.
Only giving it 4 stars because of 2 reasons:
- the delay in cooling setback i described is a bit unfortunate but if you plan ahead, it isn't always an issue.
- The first one arrived with a broken fan blade. Haier customer support was a giant waste of time, but good old Amazon took the replacement with a provided free shipping label as always. The new one arrived 2 days later as prime always does, so you can feel secure that amazon has your back even on large items.
This A/C unit was incredibly easy to install and keeps our bedroom quite comfortable. We set it on low, and the temperature in our room stays nice and cool all day and night.
Installation was pretty easy, since I had installed a similar unit before. One thing I noticed was that this portable A/C didn't come with any sort of padded adhesive to help seal the window. No matter, I quickly realized that the padded adhesive that came with our other A/C unit was a complete waste, since we accomplished much better sealing with some moving tape.
More importantly, we don't have to keep a hose attached to this with a bucket for draining. Another A/C unit we used required dumping a bucket of water every 8 hours or so, which was a nightmare. I check the water build up now and again and only a trickle ever comes out. It looks like the unit is doing its job of evaporating any condensation up through the exhaust vent.
I've found that portable A/Cs can emit an odd smell when turned off. While this unit does emit a noticeable smell, it is mild, especially compared to the rotten trash smell of the other A/C we bought from Amazon last summer.
A few reviews mentioned that this unit is not powerful enough to cool a 400-500sq ft room, we simply put a fan in front of the unit to help circulate the air, and it's worked really well! Our master bedroom is now the coldest room in the house!
I'm happy with the quality and performance of this unit and I would consider buying another one.
