UPDATE OCT 21, 2012 - This A/C ran 24/7 up until about a week ago when it finally cooled off and never once did it leak or need to be drained. I am extremely happy with my Soleus Air PH4-13R-01!
UPDATE JUNE 30, 2013 - It was very humid here and I ran this 24hours straight more for the humidity than for the heat at 61°F and it did not leak once. I have it set up to exhaust to the outside and intake inside air as my home is loose. Also I like having it set up next to the entry way window as that way I can use floor fans to direct the air up to 30feet into the room(s) I want. This weighs 80lbs so you really don't want to be moving it all the time. I am very thrilled with this portable A/C, dehumidifier, heater, and fan. I have used it as a heater during the winter too and that was great.
OCTOBER 2014 UPDATE: I can still run this portable a/c 24 hours per day 7 days per week and it works great shooting out 61°F air and never needing to be drained. It is great.
The machine is really big, really huge, and extremely heavy. But pretty good looking, with a great design. Packaging was large and bulk, and it traveled a long way to where I am. The side panels were a bit damaged from shipping and handling and I hoped it wouldn't be a problem, so far not a problem.
There is nothing portable about it. Besides its heavy weight, once you install the window kit, the last thing you want is to keep moving it around and compromise a good installation.
I did not receive one of the accessories, the sliding panel, and the instructional dvd and manual showed that this was necessary for installing the AC on my window, but we figured it out in the end with what we had. My window is a horizontal sliding window. I adapted two of the panels I had (one with two exhaust hose openings and one with no openings) to one end of the window, mending the two to cover the entire vertical length. Attaching the exhaust hoses was really easy, all I had to do was make sure that the window kit was well screwed in my window, to hold, and then stretch the hoses and attach them to the AC unit.
When I plugged it in and turned it on it sounded like I had a plane's engine right inside my room. It was so loud!Read more ›
Overall, we are quite pleased with the unit, but it takes up quite a bit of space in the bedroom. Sometimes I think the window unit was easier in that sense - certainly cheaper / took less indoor space.
A word about capacity - the previous unit was only 8000 BTU - this unit claims to be larger in capacity - and it may very well be - but it certainly seems to take a bit longer to cool the room / upper floor of the house. (this seems typical of this type - read up online) BUT - it isn't nearly as noisy as the old unit was. There is a small rattle that is solved by placing a small pillow on the left side of the unit - annoying, but workable.
The remote is probably a cool feature, but we simply set to temp and move on. We never touch it. I'm curious how the heater will work in the winter.
Relatively easy to install - took about an hour - the unit is quite heavy - over 100 lbs easily - takes some effort to move.
Don't turn on for 24 hours after you've moved the unit - especially if turned on it's side. I let the unit sit in our bedroom for a few days as we had to set it at an angle to transport.
CONS - this unit is expensive, takes up a lot of room INSIDE of the house, might take a bit longer to cool than a window unit.
PROS - easy to install, remote nice feature, works pretty well.
