The TCL 8,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner is a great little unit that cools down a room very quickly. It comes with a remote control which is always nice so you can adjust the temperature, fan speed, mode, or vent direction. One thing I really like is that you can set the vents to oscillate back and forth or stop them where you want during the oscillation. Pretty cool.
This unit gets COLD! It cools up to a 350sf room. I would say the noise level is medium. Not something you would want near a tv.:). You would need to place in an area off to the side. As you can see from the photos, you need about 2 feet between the unit and the wall. That is my only negative. I wish the exhaust hose was more pliable so that the unit could be closer to the wall.
This particular unit can also be used as a dehumidifier is you hook up a short hose to the port in the back for drainage. I like that if you have the unit in a bedroom you can dim the digital readout so that it is not so bright when the lights are turned out. The TCL air conditioner weighs about 50lbs, but it has castor wheels so it is easily maneuverable anywhere in your house.
We live in South Texas so the weather gets pretty hot and muggy through spring and summer. We do a lot of camping and are thinking about taking this unit with us to set up in our tent. We would need to vent out the door, but my goodness it would make things so much nicer!!!! We just purchased a 3 room tent so there should be no problem size wise putting this in the tent....just have to have an electrical hookup!:)
Great product and very versatile.
