Summary: I hesitated on buying an ac unit for 3 years! I don't know what took me sooo long to make this investment. Best decision I made. Coming home isn't a drag anymore and I'm actually cold in the dead of summer! I have a dining/licing/kitchen combo, about 650 sq ft and the room is perfectly cooled. Even makes it into the bedroom a little. Love it!
Pros: Accurate Temperature Controls, Cools the Whole Room, Energy Efficient, Even Air Distribution
Summary: After struggling for years with windowless portable units, I finally gave up and installed this casement unit. I have only used this a few times since installing the unit, but it's very powerful and cools much more efficiently than a portable windowless unit, even if they have the same btu rating.
Summary: This was a replacement for a smaller unit. Great price for the BTU. After installation, discovered that the unit prevents sleeping in the room while in operation. This might be good in a busy office, but terrible for any sleeping room. Sorry, but I wish I had not purchased it.
