    Very happy with this purchase. I had to search other sites for sufficient reviews to understand exactly what I was getting. I have an upstairs master bedroom that won't cool down. It's fairly large, with a connected bathroom that has an open doorway. So I'm pretty sure it's closer to 200 square feet than 150, which this unit is rated for. I wasn't sure it would do the job. It does take a few hours to cool the room down from a hot level, but it gets it done. Now that I run the unit regularly, it cools it down much quicker, since it doesn't reach the heat levels of before. Oh, and there really is no water venting needed. Do not open the bottom tube, just set the unit to a/c and vent the hot air outside. This thing uses 'evaporative cooling'. The air vent took some time to get right, but this was the way to go for me. I have windows that almost reach the floor. A window unit would not work that well for me. This is perfect. The timer start function is useful. I set it for 8 hours and it's cooling down when I return from work. Timer is tricky, has to be off when you set it, contrary to instructions, which are a bit confusing. I don't use the remote, no need to. All the buttons on the machine itself do what I need and at a comfortable angle to reach. Bottom line: well worth the expense and safe to order even though all you can see in the pic is a white blob. If you research this, you'll notice some negative reviews. These I think are from people with zero technical skills. Yes, you DO need to be a guy that can read instructions, lift heavy objects and use a screwdriver. It's not light to carry upstairs. But once there, it rolls on its wheels very easily. I'm satisfied enough to have thrown out the box it came in.

    I purchased 2. The box implies they can handle a room about 100-150 sqft. I'd say that's accurate. They are not loud (as some I purchased in the past were#. They blow out very cold air. The room needs to be sealed. The digital controls, remote, and advanced automatic functions #timer etc# are worth the money. I'd buy these again - provided they are well matched to the room and overall outside temperature. Very good looking and well sized units #not bulky or tiny#. For the price we paid and the fact that we're renters, I think they are good #don't want to be fitting window units#. The window kit was easy to use and we just used masking tape to seal it #instead of supplied foam seal).

    Best Portable Unit in lowest BTU size available

    Customer review by eastcoastian

    I was looking for an Air Conditioner unit for a small room in my home. This type of portable design is perfect for my requirements. I was also looking for an Energy Efficient unit with the lowest BTU so that the Wattage is less, to save money on electricity usage charges. This is the only unit I could find with the lowest BTU (5000) and lowest Watts Per Hour, from a well known manufacturer. Installation was easy and took about 20 minutes. I had to measure the width of my window and carefully hacksaw the plastic panel with the hole for the exhaust tube. The exhaust tube is flexible, folds out to any shape and turn for the installation. The Grey adhesive rubber tape and Black foam liner provided with this unit are very helpful for installation. If the room has been hot for the entire day, it will take several hours to cool it. (BTW, It will take the same time to cool the room with similar specification Window AC.) But after the temperature is obtained, the unit easily maintains cooling. The unit goes off when the digital thermostat reaches the set temperature. There are multiple settings and all can be operated with the full function remote control with digital display. The “Swing” function helps cool the surrounding area faster for immediate relief on hot days. The plastic panel and tube remained in the same position even during Hurricane Sandy. I removed the unit in November. I was expecting the reservoir to contain some water from condensation but to my surprise it was completely dry in spite of a very hot and humid summer. This may be because I had not used the unit for several weeks which allowed any water to dry off on its own. I recommend everyone to read the instructions carefully before and during use. It took me about 10 minutes to re-install the plastic panel and exhaust back on the same window this summer. Its easier the second time because the rubber tape and plastic panel are already cut to window dimensions and the tape remains in the window. The black foam which goes on the top portion of the window goes back in its place easily. The unit uses much lesser electricity than other wall air conditioners in my other rooms which are higher BTU specifications because those rooms are larger. I measured that the unit uses around 31 Watts on "Lo" fan, and around 575 Watts while the compressor is ON after the room temperature is stabilized. (The electric usage fluctuates between 400-700 watts before temperature is stabilized.) One thing I noticed is that the exhaust is too powerful on this unit. I have to firmly close the door or the negative pressure in the room due to the powerful suction of this unit, pulls the door open if it is left slightly ajar. This may be because this unit is designed for a slightly larger room than the one I am using it in. My room must be about 10 feet x 10 feet. Using ceiling fan or personal fans will help cool the room faster by circulating air within the room. This unit does not become dirty easily. The smooth surface prevents dust from sticking. The handles on the two sides help lift it easily and the top handle allows positioning. (The unit is not heavy in my experience.) Wheels on the bottom help slide it or cleaning around it and moving to store it. I kept the box which has helped store it during fall, winter, and spring. The tube can be folded back into it's compressed position which can be stored in the top Styrofoam which has a section specifically for it. It is called portable because it is possible to move it from the window to storage or a second window of the same size theoretically. It doesn't mean you can just move it to any window at anytime. The plastic panel, foam, and rubber tape provided will cover only one very large window or two small windows of the exact same size. Last year after I purchased this unit, it went into “Out of Stock” status for the rest of the year. I was lucky to order it just before it disappeared last year. Its good to see it back in “Available” status this year. Overall, I am very happy with this unit, it's features, it's performance, and the price for it. Thank you Walmart for this excellent product, affordable price and almost Free shipping.

    • Theoretically, Yes, but there are a few things you will need. If all your windows are the exact same size then the same plastic panel for the exhaust tube will work on all windows. If your other windows are of different sizes then you will need to order additional plastic panels for the other windows. All you will need then is some additional Grey rubber adhesive tape which goes permanently below the plastic panel and some black foam lining which goes on the top portion of the sliding window between the two window panes. You can purchase the tape and foam from any hardware store or HVAC supplier.

    • Only if you don't screw the window thing into the window. And it still will be a pain in the butt.

    • Yes the unit can be moved from room to room. However, the plastic piece that fits on the window sill to allow the flexible tubing to vent the air outside the room is another matter. I wouldn't want to constantly move the plastic window piece from window to window.

    • If you slide the exhaust hose off, which is easy. You can push it into another room to cool it, and back to reconnect.

    • Yes, however the window part would need moved too. It is easy to install, but I put some foam with adhesive backing on parts that looked like it had a gap. So you may need to purchase some extra foam if you plan to uninstall from one window and put in another window.
