Excellent Product

The Global 8000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner works great. It easily cools down a 250sf room. Runs quietly. Has a dehumidify option. I purchased the portable unit because with crank windows in the room, a window unit was not possible. It did take a little time to create a way to vent the product, but some plexiglass did the job. The unit works great.

Portable A/C unit for the hot spots

Your review: Quick delivery on my order and the unit cools really well.

Pros: Love the remote control capability. The unit is relatively lightweight and the wheels make it easy to move the unit around.

Cons: The included ducting for the hot air exhaust needs to be longer. There should also be provisions for a remote air intake duct for the condenser coil. Drawing that air out of the conditioned space and then exhausting it remotely depressurizes the space and creates other issues that have to be worked around.

Works Great

Your review: I bought this to help with my RV on very hot days when my factory A/C doesn't keep up. I bought this instead of upgrading the factory A/C to a larger size. It works great and is quieter than the factory roof mounted unit.

Pros: Works great. Priced right. Quiet.

Cons: None

Portable Air Conditioner

Your review: It works great! I wish it wasn't as loud as it is, but I can still fall asleep with it on with no issues.

Pros: size, cools quickly

Cons: attachment is very short, needed to buy additional tubing as well as cut the plastic so it would fit my window. a little loud.

Your review: Very happy with purchase. Cools conference room perfectly and is quiet. Does not hinder conversation in room.

Pros: good price

Cons: none

Not Recomended

Your review: First, a single vent unit does not work in most situations. The exhaust air pulled from the room comes from other parts of the house which ultimately comes from hot outside air. The central A/C runs more to make up the difference. Had to create my own dual venting system. Best used as a dehumidifier. Although I was able to get it working, I regret buying this unit and will not recommend it to anyone.

Pros: Relatively quite. Seems to be quality built. Cools as expected once converted to dual vents.

Cons: -Poor design for venting. -Non-standard 5 1/2" vent pipe comes loose easily. -Plastic vent is not insulated and radiates heat back into the room. -Poor documentation -Poor system control design. -Sleep feature places the fan in auto mode. -Fan auto mode sets fan to high when needed but never returns back to low. -Timer feature cannot be set to repeat. -Timer feature does not allow setting actual clock times. -Both fans run continuously. No auto off when not cooling. Exhaust fan should turn off when not cooling.

AC unit works great

Your review: I installed the unit in my garage to help my dogs deal with a skin rash during our recent heat wave in San Diego. The unit lowers humidity and keeps the garage at the recommended temperature set point.

Pros: Easy to set up and use.

Cons: Have some concern about energy use.

Portable Air Conditioner Ok

Your review: The unit arrived next day. It weighted 85 lbs, a bit heavier than expected; but all was well.

Pros: Easy to set up.

Cons: The window slider did not fit my window well as the part that connects the exhaust hose to the window slider is wider in diameter than the slider. So, it rests arkwardly on the window. The air discharge allows only verical redirection of air; would be better if it could disperse air in all directions at once to cool evenly.

Portable Air Conditioner

Your review: We purchased the portable air conditioner to cool our garage when used for family get-togethers. It worked great. Everyone was comfortable.

Expectations Exceeded

Your review: Ordered one day and the very next day it was at my door with free shipping; very impressed!

Pros: Love the system and very easy to use. I personally bought it for my dog house and it works great.

Cons: None at this poinT!

Great purchase

Pros: 1.)Very easy set up. 2.)Works perfectly with horizontal, or vertical windows. 3.)Can easily open the window on nice days, when the exhaust unit is still installed. 4.)Can put anywhere in a room (near an exhaust access). 5.)With a window mounted air conditioner, if it gets cool outside,or the unit is in direct sun for a long time, they seem to stop working properly.....since this unit is inside your room, that does not happen. 6.)Quiet on and off phases when the correct temp. is reached....I sleep right through it.

Cons: No cons as of yet. I have used the unit daily for 3 months.

Global 8000 BTU portable Air-conditioner

Your review: Received carton in good shape. Unpacked and read instruction booklet. Installed the window adapter, plugged it into the electrical socket and turned it on. The unit worked as designed.

Pros: Works exactly as described in the literature. If I ever need another one, I'll again purchase this model. I've told everybody about this unit. It's got better ratings then the Lowe's units.

Cons: The manual could be more descriptive and list the refrigerant specs.

Great bargin!

Your review: For the money, this is a great unit. It actually got the room too cool and we had to turn in down.

Pros: great price easy to move around cools well

Cons: none

Is this review helpful?

Works fine except fan never turns off.

Pros: Cools well

Cons: As confirmed by the manufacturer, while on cool, the fan NEVER turns off. The compressor turns on and off with the thermostat setting but the fan runs continuously. I can not image that the life of the unit will be more than a year as a result.

Just what I needed

Your review: I wanted to cool a couple of first floor rooms without needing help every spring and fall to move a window air conditioner. This is a powerful unit that pushes out plenty of cool air. The size and noise level are acceptable too. I'm pleased with my purchase.

portable air conditioner

Your review: This is just what I needed for our master bedroom since the windows were too wide for a window air conditioner. It's a bit noisy but that's what you put up with if you don't have central air.

after 2 weeks

Your review: so far so good- it would have been helpful to have more discussion about the "drain" function in the manual e.g. when does it nee to be drained ? does the drain hose nee to be hooked up anytime other than "dehumidify" operation it would be helpful if the drain hose provided was longer (3+ feet?)

Great A/C unit

Your review: I got mine last week and I am loving it. The only nitpick I have is the exhaust tube is a bit rigid. That is it. It has been wonderful to have since the temps in my trailer tend to be a good 10 degrees warmer then the outside. No shade.

Is this review helpful?

not excited

Your review: It maybe my fault for expecting to much. The unit arrived intact. The problem is it did not blow constantly cold. It should be able to run constantly with out a drain. When the pan fills up it turns into a fan with no a/c. Depending on where you are it is not easy to rig up a drain. When pan is empty it blows cold.

Love it so much I bought another one!

Your review: This unit is amazing - cools quite nicely in the space it currently occupies - so good that I ordered a larger unit for the great room space and will move this one to the master bedroom suite. The setup was so easy I thought I was leaving something out! I would give it 5 stars, but its just a tad too loud for my taste. Not horrible, but not quiet enough either. I would recommend this to anyone.
