In Fan mode, the fan circulates the air at your desired fan speed but the compressor does not run. Only 4 stars because this model did. This is way too much work to have to be doing for something that doesn't even work well. There was a small defect under the unit and 1 screw missing but I decided to go ahead and install because it was very heavy to get the unit upstairs to my room. Took over an hour to do and was hard to understand.
Don't particularly like the energy saving mode because it comes on every 3 minutes. Very disappointed in this product. They kept reading the miniature size directions, discussing and trying to figure it out. Thankfully my wife rarely wears clothes so it helps with our cooling costs. With this energy efficient unit, you wont have to worry about wasting loads of energy figuring out your electric bill.
Only drawback was waiting days for it to come in from Ohio. It's heavy, so I suggest 2 people to slide the unit into the cabinet ounce that's installed and secured in your window frame. It was to replace an. The remote is practically useless as you have to be almost close enough to push the buttons yourself. This unit cools a 500 square foot area to 72 degrees in about 15 minutes. Instead, I had to enter another lengthy service request.
The one thing that makes sense. It isn't loud but I do wish it was quieter. I guess they don't make them like they used to! Boasting sleek, streamlined designs, powerful air throw, and incredibly quiet operations, our portable air conditioners offer the ultimate in flexibility. We love this Air Conditioner. This is my second unit in the same location. Explore our innovative collection and keep your family comfortable even during the hottest -- and most humid -- months of the year. Will do a follow up on this.
Prices and availability of products and services are subject to change without notice. This would have been fine, if one of them would have worked. Incredibly time-consuming and confusing installation process. It seems to be designed and manufactured well. While running the unit, I noticed a few drops of water - from the screw holes that mount the internal components - and pierce the bottom of the chassis. It turns the fan on every 3 minutes to force air through the temperature sensor and decides if it really needs to turn on the compressor and the fan again.
Innovative louvers direct airflow in an outward circular motion allowing for quick and. However, so worth it on those screaming hot, humid days. Errors will be corrected where discovered, and Lowe's reserves the right to revoke any stated offer and to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions including after an order has been submitted. You'll also have a choice of 3 cooling and fan speeds along with Auto Restart, which automatically turns the unit back on after a power outage - so you don't have to. Rated 1 out of 5 by Dan from Not worth it Bought this 12000 btu to try n keep my room cool which is fairly small 16x16.
My concern is even though I keep it on energy saver mode, it seems to rarely turn off. I thought the slide-out chassis on this air-conditioner would be great as I could remove it and hose the rear fins off to minimize corrosion from salty ocean air. Cools great, very quiet, easy to install with a helper. I have been looking for an air conditioner for 10 years to cool my whole apartment and I found it! Due to this problem I had to drill a hole in the back of it to stop the water from entering my room. The one I have here in the lab does have one! The old unit was incredibly loud.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed from I did not get a chance to test because I was unable to install it. And set up is a cinch with our easy-to-use installation kit. I just had it installed today and it seems. The chassis can be installed by one perso. Otherwise, it was smooth sailing.
Asked me to send them a picture of the proof of purchase and then said they would get back to me. Not a very impressive air-conditioner in my opinion. Unit is noisy and besides the rushing air sound has an annoying vrom vrom sound from fan or compressor. Much more quiet then the Frigidaire we had for a while. The chassis can be installed by one person as it is only about 10 lbs. After all is said and done it does blow very cold air so I'm not going to return it especially when it weighs 115 pounds.
