LG's 115V Portable Air Conditioner with LCD remote control is the ideal climate-control solution for when you’re on the go - room to room, house to house or home to work, the installation is quick and easy. The innovative dehumidification function mixes cool dry air with the warm air to keep you comfortable and prevent over-cooling. The oscillating air vent technology circulates the dispersed air more efficiently, so no hot spot will be left untouched. Plus, with the programmable 24-hour on/off timer, you can control the temperature even when you're not there! In October 2017, the Department of Energy implemented a new test procedure to determine the BTU rating of portable air conditioners. The procedural change has adjusted the amount of BTUs allowed to be claimed downward by as much as 50%. There have been no internal changes to these units, and the functionality remains the same. Please refer to room size guidelines to find the portable air conditioner that best meets your needs

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It has only been a few hours but so far I am just in love with the performance, appearance, quality and the fit and finish of this unit!
It is quiet and powerful with no vibrations or rattles (many reviews I read of other similar products had rattles/vibrations). It only took a few minutes to cool down my large living room then the compressor cycled off! I have no problem hearing the TV over it (unlike most window units big enough to cool this space!) The remote is very nice looking as well.
What impresses me the most is the window insert-- It is thick and robust providing its own insulation power with the exception of the part where the actual duct hole is. (Photo #1) They also include several extra insert pieces so you can mix and match to get the best fit for your window. Then to top it off the pieces interlock with slots so you get a very tight fit. (photo #2) Now the locking holes are about 1 inch apart so you could have a situation where when you get a tight fit in the window a locking hole wont line up. However, it would be an easy matter to drill a custom hole in the track where you need to get the perfect fit. Now in my case the thickness fit my window track so perfectly I did not even need the locking holes. (photo #3) In fact, it fit so tightly I did not even use the provided foam insulation tape on three sides. I only used the insulation where the window comes down on to the top of the window insert (Photo #4).
The duct is also robust and has a locking ring at the AC end and locking tabs on the window side. It is a stiff but flexible duct/ I don’t know the proper term but it clicks when you bend it then stays that way until you bend it again.
OH! One thing that I was really concerned about when thinking about buying one of these units was water drainage. With a window unit the water just drips onto the grass. These inside units have a catch tank. Some reviews on some similar products where rife with the horrors of trying to drain the water tank. I have read that in many cases the tank never needs to be drained so I was thinking maybe it is not an issue. However it is VERY humid where I live so I expect to have to do this. So I was relieved to find:
1) The drain is up high, roughly in the middle of the unit on the back side. Very easy access. (some units have a drain at the very bottom and tipping, etc. is required to drain them)
2) The drain has a ‘nipple’ so a hose can easily be attached for draining into an old milk jug or whatever...
3) The hose would be about the diameter of your finger so it would not be big and bulky.
So, if it turns out this unit does need to be drained I plan to run up to Home Depot and get some hose to fit then drill a hole in the window insert so I can just put the hose out the window with the hot air!
In fact, the only con I can think of to this whole unit is it would have been nice of them to provide that drain hose and pre-punch the hole for it in the window insert. On the other hand I may not need to drain it? I will update this review on if I do or if anything about my opinion changes.
Now, as I was writing this review I got cold and had to set the thermostat up some! THAT IS SO AWESOME!
UPDATE -- One month later and I have never had to drain water from the unit and I still love it. So adding the drain hose this is totally unnecessary!
Amazon ships this AC unit in its own packaging, no external packaging or padding. Mine arrived with all sorts of holes, dents and cuts to the box but the unit itself is fine. Many others do report it arriving cracked or even leaking oil/coolant upon delivery. With Amazon only shipping this with slow-delivery (5-6 days) it's definitely inconvenient to wait so long only to see it arrive damaged.
I did look at many other portable AC units and found all of them to have a mix of good and very bad reviews for similar reasons. This box is about 75 pounds and on a UPS truck it will get damaged easily from being thrown around.
Price is pretty comparable to other 12000 BTU AC units.
The unit uses about 1320 watts per hour. To break this down, my electric company charges about 40 cents per KWH, that means this unit costs about 53 cents per hour to run. Definitely worth it at times, but even if used for 4 hours per day you can expect an increase of about 60 bucks per month for electricity. It adds up.
The unit runs off a standard 3-port (15 amp/115 volt) outlet. It requires ~11.5 amps to run, so if you're connecting it to an older circuit breaker you may run into issues with running other equipment alongside it (on the same circuit). EX: Running AC + TV + Surround sound on a 15 amp circuit.
The description says BLACK, the item photo looks BLACK. How come its grey in person? Not only that, the remote is silver and the power plug and exhaust tube are both bright white.
The design beyond that looks nice but nothing matches.
On to the remote, it's kind of neat in that it has a (non-backlit/black and white) display but also a bit annoying in that it often isn't in sync with the AC unit. If you press POWER on the remote, the remote control will turn on (and if youre pointing it at the AC, it will also turn on). If you're not pointing it at the AC when pressing power, the remote will turn on but not the AC unit. The remote lets you change the same settings as on the unit itself as well as a few others (like switching from F to C or auto-cleaning the unit).
I found the remote hard to read in the dark (such as watching a movie). The buttons on the bottom are pretty near invisible in the dark as they fade into the silver of the remote.
Unit is very easy to install but the included materials are written terribly. Even the laminated sheets that come with a suction cup to attach to the unit are such poor english that it seems nobody bothered to even look it over. For a pricey item like this and a company like LG.. you'd expect that the printed pieces that you're supposed to attach to the AC unit would be checked.
Very easy. Plug the unit in, mix/match the included pieces to fit your window size and then attach the hose to the AC itself.
Again, very easy. 4 modes: Cool/Fan/Dry/Energy Saver and 3 fan speeds (low/med/high)
Cool = AC + FAN
Fan = Fan only
Dry = Dehumidify
Energy saver = Cycle on/off regularly
Very cool! With the AC on, you feel an immediate difference and turning it off (switching to fan) is very noticeable. It will easily chill a room down.
AC units come in multiple BTU sizes. They're defined on this box as:
8000 BTU = 200 square feet (10x20 foot room)
10000 BTU = 300 square feet (15x20 foot room)
12000 BTU = 400 square feet (20x20 foot room)
14000 BTU = 500 square feet (25x20 foot room)
Im using this in a 10x20 foot room and still went with the 12000 BTU unit and don't regret it.
If you select "Fan" the compressor the AC turns off and it simply blows air (as expected). If you switch back to "Cool" it continues to only blow air (no compressor). Even cycling it on/off will not fix it, you need to unplug it and plug it back in.
Price is about on-par. Item works very well but is a bit iffy in some areas. I would recommend getting the extended warranty on it.
Shipping is also iffy, if you can find it local (or dont mind needing to possibly deal with an exchange) this is a nice AC.
Looks of the unit itself are nice but the whole combination of odd colors (grey AC, White vent tube, white power cable, silver remote control) is a bit odd.
The unit itself is pricey in the long-term due to the power usage. Even the initial cost is a bit much, but when you factor in the extra monthly costs, it only goes up. With that said, you can either deal with the heat and try to use fans all summer or pay the price and get a comfortable level of cool air out of it.
I also own the 10,000 unit for my guest bedroom and family room upstairs and have no had good experiences with that one. So for the little extra money, I definitely say just get the 12,000.
