I purchased this airconditioner to cool my master bedroom, including a walk-in closet and a master bathroom, all with vaulted ceilings and with sliding glass doors to a balcony. We have central AC but it does not cool the upstairs bedrooms adequately, and this was the most cost efficient solution for us. The Pinguino gets my whole bedroom area ICE COLD in less than 30 minutes, so cold that I often have to sometimes turn it off because I am freezing. I absolutely loved it, until August, when it started leaking buckets of water all over my bedroom carpeting. The water that comes out of the air conditioner stinks. I am trying to clean it up with damp towels soaked in bleach to remove the smell. I can either take it back to the store now--in August, one of the hottest months of the year, and wait 2 weeks for a replacement, or I can keep sopping up water with towels. I put a plastic storage container top under the unit to trap the water. If it did not leak, it would be a dream come true, and I would have rated it five stars.
