I live in an apartment that has jalousie paneled windows and is overlooked by a property management company that is run by a rather strict person who won't allow me to do much, if anything to my apartment. Because of this, I felt that it was probably better for my stay here to get a portable air conditioner. I am using this for a ~120 sq ft bedroom with an outside temperature of 83 degrees and average humidity of 60-80% depending on the season.
First off, the thing is quite heavy. I don't lift weights, so it was a bit difficult getting the thing to my front door. I strongly suggest using a handtruck or getting the help of a friend if you have to take this far distances. Once you can get it out of the box and onto a floor though, it comes with four casters attached to the bottom to easily roll it to where you need it.
Setup was pretty straightforward. Much like someone else did in their review, I had a hard time getting the exhaust cover off the grill window adapter. You will need a flathead screwdriver to get this thing off. Using my fingers didn't help.
Next, the manual states that the machine is supposed to come with two duct connectors that are angled. Mines came with only one - the other side of the duct already had a straight duct connector screwed onto it (which can be taken off if needed). Kind of annoying, but not enough to dock off a point.
The window that I could use to exhaust air was located farther away from the unit than I expected. Just remember, you will be given a maximum of THREE FEET for the plastic duct itself, and you'll want to leave about a half foot of slack each for the connectors (the duct is plastic, hence the necessary slack). In other words, this will probably be positioned directly below the window you want to plug it into.
The window adapter is a PVC panel, but it comes with two extensions if needed. The adapter itself has a fixed and short length that should fit most windows. My jalousies were a bit bigger, so I used one of the two plates to attach it to the adapter to extend it to the perfect size for my window. This should be sufficient for most jalousie window users and also vertical and horizontal sliding windows.
Jalousie windows don't have the best air/sound insulation. There's lots of little cracks where air will escape/enter into windows and whatnot. This is why it's best to buy a unit that is slightly oversized for your use. As someone has pointed out, warm air will also want to come back into the bedroom you're trying to cool, so do your best to try to insulate as much of the area as possible. I'm a cheap person so I just used duct tape.
So after running this thing for a couple hours with the fan on high in cooling mode, my room which was initially at around 75% humidity (according to my weather application on my phone) and was 83 degrees (according to the LED readout) now is at 77 degrees. I haven't seen it drop any lower. I do run a high end computer gaming machine 24/7 that could be contributing to the heat load, but this unit is supposedly advertised to be able to cool a room that's 250 sq ft, where my room is 120.
That's a 6 degree temperature drop after 2 hours of cooling, which I suppose is okay, but I was hoping it could cool my room a bit faster. I might have to get a higher BTU unit simply because of the inefficient design of the windows in my room.
The vent for the machine pretty much points straight up at the ceiling. In theory this should work as cool hair tends to sink, but since I only care about having it cool *me*, this might be a design flaw that will annoy me, since I would prefer the vents just point at me. I'll probably deal with it once I get used to the way this machine works.
I'd say if my room was slightly smaller, maybe 100 sq ft, this AC would be JUST the right size, but as of now, I would try to find a way to borrow a 7000 BTU unit from somewhere and test it out in your room if your room is about my room's size and see if it'll help any. I MAY consider upgrading to a 8000 or 9000 BTU unit now that I know how this one works. I only run this unit when I get home from work in the evening and I'll probably only run it in the weekends if it gets unbearable, so for my purposes I think this thing is sufficient.
Hopefully this helps you guys make an informed decision about your machine. If your bedroom only contains something simple like a TV and nothing else, this machine is probably great for you, but I'll probably have to get a slightly stronger unit because of the massive amount of heat my CPU generates.
I wish that the LEDs on the front of the unit were dimmable because they are pretty bright at night.
