Haven't had real hot days so not sure how it will behave and have not tried the heater yet. BUt it cools down fairly nice. It just loud. (I think any of this kind will be loud for me) Easy set up. (Just pain to install/uninstall) window panel every time. (I don't leave it permanent), but other than that, I haven't had any issue so far (with limited amount of usage). However, I wish this came with "Current Temp" display.

So far so good
I have only had it for a week but so far so good the temperature outside is barely hitting the three digit 100°.
It works great and cools a large room quick.
Not a good value
Noisey and dies not cool down a 12x 12 room well at all. Much much happier with an amana unit i biught after this one for way less money. Not recommened
Glad I bought this ac
I had a similar 12000 btu, and I pulled it out and put this 14000 in place. It was so much better I have to keep turning it down. It's getting so cold in place
It works well at keeping my entire first floor cool, but is very loud! Its my first AC so i dont have another to compare it to but I cant hear when someone knocks or rings the doorbell if the AC is on so thats a bit frustrating. Id rather be nice and cool than hear the door though lol
Draining water pan, a huge ploblem. Poor Design!
Its works great. It was easy to install, but it has a big problem with the water emptying which must be done every few days using heat. The water plug is too close to the floor. When you take the plug out water pores out on my carpet before I could get the drainage hose connected to the. Because the plug is too close to the floor any drainage pan must run up hill. I had to cut the drainage hose to about six inches and tilt the unit and drainage pan to get it to drain all that didn't pour out on my carpet with having to pull the plug before I could connect the drainage hose connected. It did turn off when the tank became full as it said, however, there was water under the unit, so I am not sure it didn't leak on my carpet besides what pored out trying to connect the hose. I have left the short hose connected, trying continuous draining. But the hose still runs uphill some because of the height of the drainage pan. If the continuous draining slightly up hill doesn't work, then I will have to try something else as it completely shuts down as stated when the tank is full. What a wonderful machine to have such a poor engineering flaw!
Puts out a lot of heat but can't maintain temp
much research on heat pump/ac units before i bought this unit about 3 weeks ago for my well insulated she-shed so i'll only review heat mode for now.
had issues the first 24 hours; the unit's internal condensate tank filled within 24 hours inside the shed, which held a humidity level of just 60%. called b&d to ask the capacity of the water tank - no one knew. at the time, we vented thru a window.
emptied the tank (this beast weighs a TON!) which probably held about 10-14 oz of water, installed a 5" louvered wall vent and tried again. with temps in the low 30s and high 20s at night (unusual for southern va), at least the unit kept the inside of the shed above freezing, but the temp was at least 12 degrees lower than the thermostat. humidity inside the shed was anywhere from 40% to 58% and the tank never held more than a tablespoon or so each day i checked. for now, we've just had the unit on a framed stand about 4" tall, which allows the tank to drain into a pan on the floor (haven't decided how to permanently drain yet.
i give this unit (so far) a solid 10 on the amount of heat it produces. it's very warm (especially for a heat pump), plenty of air, and since it's so heavy, relatively stable (although the vibrations knocked the remote off the top).
the main issue at the moment, is the condensate tank. i wouldn't want the unit to stop in the middle of the night because the tank is full, so i have to go outside and check it constantly. if it had wifi, i'd know right away to empty the tank. for the potential problems having no heat during the night, i give the unit only 2 out 10 for reliability.
overall, i'm glad i bought the unit - for now. it provides more heat than a radiator, has really good air flow, easy enuf to install, and if i needed to use it in my home where i can monitor it at all times, i'd probably love it. venting through the wall was a pain, but much better than venting through a window.
Not as powerful as advertised
Does not cool as much as advertised. Did heavy research while deciding on a unit. I recommend you find a different one. This unit does not cool the small living room I put it in. It is big and bulky, and just gets in the way. I have the unit set to its lowest setting, which is 64 degrees, I also have the fan up all the way, and it is almost 80 degrees in the living room. About 90 degrees outside.
So far, I've only used the AC mode This is supposed to be a 14,000 BTU unit. But it doesn't cool nearly as well as my 12,000 BTU window unit did. Will review heat mode, when I use it for that.
