Product Description

Style Name: KY-80

Our evaporative portable a/c unit offers a 38.4 pint dehumidifier that reduces unwanted moisture using our unique evaporative process, by removing moisture from the air and drips onto the condenser. The condenser evaporates the water and exhaust it out of the exhaust hose with the hot air. If the water is not fully evaporated it is dripped into a small pan and then pumped back up to be evaporated by the condenser. Features a programmable timer that shuts the unit on/off and remembers all settings, along with a sleep mode that automatically increases set temperature to conserve energy. LCD remote control operates and displays all settings. The single hose exhaust system provides quick spot cooling and 3 speed fan with 4 way adjustable louvers for increased circulation. Also includes a washable and reusable air filter that reduces dust and other airborne particles, and heavy duty casters attached for easy portability. More powerful, more reliable and more energy efficient.

Style Name: KY-80
I found mine locally for $250, and figured that's a pretty good price for a portable. We needed something small and efficient for a warm upstairs bedroom. Since our windows crank out I couldn't easily use the window kit. Instead, I installed the unit in a closet and put a hole through the house to vent it outside. The hole (and outside vent cover) is directly behind the exhaust port and minimal tubing was needed to vent. That way it sits close to the wall and there's no clumsy hose (6" diameter hose!) taking up space.

I like that portables are quieter and generally more energy-efficient than cheaper window units. However, it's still an air conditioner and there is still compressor noise. The 4-speed fan on low is quiet enough, but the compressor still has to turn on and off so there will be some disturbance for light sleepers. I use ear plugs anyway, so no prob.

Operationally I've had no trouble keeping the bedroom as cool as I need (about 72 degrees)considering it's basically a hot upstairs space. The unit seems well built, works as advertised and I am happy to give a positive review for this air conditioner. I would give it 5 stars but it's a little noisier than I wish it was. That's my deal, though, and no fault of the unit. I would buy it again, and I would recommend it to a friend.

Although my soleus KY-80 is still working fine, I have a feeling that the quality of the unit has changed since 2012. There are MANY 2014 reviews that talk about a grinding noise, leaking, and the AC function stopping because the self evaporation feature is not working. This causes the small collection tray at to bottom of the unit to fill up and have to be manually drained. I have a feeling that there is an internal pump that is defective, so the water just accumulates in the drip pan...which only holds about 2 cups. I had this issue with my old Whytner. Although it is easily remedied by elevating the unit and placing a bucket underneath, this is NOT how a fully functional PAC should work under all but extreme humidity conditions. I think Soleus has been either been shipping defective units, or has re-designed their 8000 btu models to save themselves money. So keep this in mind while reading the original reviews below:
Year 2 update:
1)We've had to use the Soleus for the last few days because the central system in our bldg was not up and running. The effctiveness of PACs (including this one)seems to depend on the ambient and outdoor temps and the amount of humidity. If the outdoor air is humid (>70%), but the temp is not that hot (less than 80*), don't expect the unit to lower the room temp more than a couple degrees beyond what it achieves the first half hour of operation. As another reviewer explained, single hose PACs have an in-efficiency issue(cooled room air is being taken in to the unit via the side of the machine instead of a second intake duct) BUT...

Style Name: KY-80
Summary: We use this as a cooling dehumidifier and are happy so far. When installed with the hot-air duct properly directed out a window, it has the major advantage (over a standard room dehumidifier) of cooling rather than heating the room; it has the disadvantage of being significantly harder to manually drain (there is no removable bucket), though this is a minor issue now that I can put a bucket below it, since I've have placed the unit on a short strong stand with a 'railing' to keep the it from rolling off (lockable wheels would be an improvement). For long-term use I may try to rig a hose to continuously drain it somehow.


We live in eastern Pennsylvania and in the spring and fall find it most comfortable to primarily control humidity rather than temperature in our home. Despite having a low-power/dehumidify setting, our central A/C has to pull the house temperature down 5-10 degrees below our desired 75-78F to get the humidity down to our desired 50-55% (the outside temp. may only be in the upper 70's when this happens).

To control humidity, we use the central fan of our house A/C and a room A/C near the house A/C air intake upstairs. I believe that, thermodynamically, a room dehumidifier and A/C are identical --- it's just that the hot air from the A/C is directed out the window, so it gives a slight cooling effect in the house, rather than a moderate heating effect.

We've used window units in the past, but were unhappy with the inevitable damage to the paint on the window frame and the difficulty of lifting the unit into place. Also, I would most like to put this unit (and it's significant one-room cooling effect) in the attic office, which has a window too small for a window unit. Thus, the portable design is appealing.

I bought an 8000 BTU Soleus unit. It is not a quiet unit and the window bracket that holds the big hose to the window is easily deformed so that the hose pops loose. More serious, though, is the poor quality. I bought mine in 2011. It ran for two summers, a total of 8 months max. This year, when I turned it on, it did not cool the air at all. Presumably the freon leaked out over the winter or the compressor failed, I don't know which. This company requires you to mail the unit back to the factory, a huge job considering the weight of the unit (50 pounds?) and its size. This is hardly an easy or convenient way to obtain repairs, and of course requires you to go without the unit for an extended period of time. If you ever need to drain the water, you have to pick it up and set it on a table of some sort in order to get enough clearance to put a pan or bucket under it. Paying several hundred dollars for a unit that lasts for just 8 months of use is a Bad Deal.
