    Best Window A/C Unit Ever
    7/10/2014

    Customer review by Hammerheadny

    I was initially skeptical of the Quirky air conditioner after reading some of the negative reviews on Amazon and elsewhere. After purchasing, setting up and using the unit, boy was I wrong. The unit is cost effective, easy to install and configure, a breeze to use manually and with our smartphones, and most important works well. The unit is the same form factor as other window air conditioning units in its calls, no bigger or smaller or lighter or heavier. It is very well packaged and easy to remove from the box. The set up instructions are s snap to review. One person can complete the install in under an hour but two people would make it easier. For those who complained about it fitting in the window, it's a smaller sized 8,000 btu unit. As with all window a/c's, one must meaure the window opening prior to purchase. You wouldn't buy a xxxl t-shirt if you wear a small. We have standard double hung windows and it installed with no issues. Again, as with any window a/c install, if you want to make it look and function as it was built into your home or apartment then your gonna have to caulk the edges after installation. I am not very good with handy work but this was easy to do after speaking with employees from Home Depot. After it's in the window joining your home wireless network was easy, and Quirky's customer service is second to none (polite, knowledgeable, and timely) in explaining that it runs on the 2.4 standard frequency (not 5.0 ghz). Any problems people complained about in this regard are probably due to their weak network signal or configurations on their router. Again, if you have basic skills in installing and configuring a home router (plug and play), you'll be fine here. Using it is simple and where the Quirky shines and makes the investment worthwhile. You can set it to Eco mode and still effectively cool a room because the unit turns the fan on and off to conserve energy. You can also set it to turn on and off when you enter the room its located in (better for those who carry their smart phones). Setting a schedule is also easy to do with the app (Wink) on your smartphone. The unit will begin to remember patterns in your behavior and set it self on or off to save money using that pattern. What is really great is that the unit's thermostat works and works great. For example, we set it to 74 degrees over night and Eco mode (We live in New York where its been over 90 degrees all week) and the unit is located in a second story bedroom where our baby will eventually sleep. It kept the room comfortable to sleep all night and was not on all night. As for noise complaints, the unit emits a somewhat deeper sound that conventional units but in my opinion, no louder. My wife is very sensitive to noise and had absolutely no issues with the noise. The lights on the front of the unit, if you reprogram it manually stay on for 60 seconds or less then power off so that's not an issue. The most important thing about a window a/c to me is is it going to save me money. In my opinion the Quirky will save us money because it forces us to think about how and when we use energy which in turns helps us make better energy decisions. This is a great idea, well designed and even better implemented. I would highly recommend it to everyone out there who has a need to cool a space but lacks central air conditioning.

    I purchased my Quirky Aros from Walmart, but I got mine a 100.00 cheaper. WAS surprised to see it went up in price in less than a week. Installing it is easy. Was done in under an hr. However, (while it works w/o the app), the app is to help you control the settings so it doesn't constantly run. You have to have wifi..but even then after dozen of tries. Following every step by step directions. The app wouldn't sync. Then finally the next day it did. ONLY to work for about 5 hours and the WINK app froze up and stopped allowing me to control the AC unit with the app. So I uninstalled the app/re installed, repeated every step again....not syncing! Called WINK support twice...automated hold for up to 10 min each time with NO live person ever answering the phone. NOR responding to email. So for now, the AC unit runs until I manually turn it off. NOT good at all! Support needs to fix these issues and have better customer phone support as well. So for now it gets 3 stars. I'll give it 5 when they fix the issues!
