Summary: At 14000 BTU's I would expect to cool a room of less then 400sq feet but it will not it can drop the temperature more than 2 degrees, fine if it is 27 degrees but last night it was 32 and room stayed 30. My dog over heated. SUCKS.... After paying $600 I have to go out and by another.
This was a wonderful find and the best air condtioner I ever owned.

Summary: I have purchased a number or portable air conditioners in my life and this is the best one by far. I bought 2 last year from Sears and this one Haier does more work than the 2 of them. It cools the house down in a matter of minutes. There is very little noise and that is nice when watching tv or just visiting. I'm so happy I ran across this when I went on vacation to my sisters house in July.
Summary: Bought this unit to cool our data closet as our building cooling goes off on nights and weekends. Venting into the ceiling and exhaust tubes are too short to reach ceiling, had to put the unit on 2.5' platform to reach ceiling.Unit is relatively light so was able to lift onto platform and make light platform. Timer is not programable if unit is on you can set how many hours until it goes off or if unit is off you can set how many hours until it comes on.
