Blows cold and a lot of options 08/17/2014
Upon opening the box the A/C looked great and packaging on it was pretty well done.
It took me and only one other person to install into our garage window. It took maybe 2 hours and the cord was long enough to reach the outlet so plus one for not having to use an extension. The unit fired up right away and I will break it all down in sections.
I spend A LOT of time inside my garage, whether it be fixing my car or just hanging out with the guys over the weekend. With a lot of folks breathing and a lot of body heat inside a 2 car garage, with any fans or a/c it can get quite toasty in there. With this and around 12 people inside the garage on a 80F night it stayed cool in there while we sat, talked and played games.
Of course we all know it doesn't cool the room right away but it sure doesn't take long either. Just try to tell your buddies to keep off from staying in front of it when you first get it going. Remote makes a beep noise but is responsive and you don't need to press 2-3 times for it to register. Easy to drain, and air filter is in the front which I prefer. All in all it blows cold, has all the options you could possibly want and will keep a two car garage cool.
I didn't notice the first few times using it but just recently it started to make noise, seems like the casing is just loose or something loose inside. I call them wear and tear noises but it doesn't bother me too much since I don't use it inside.
The beep from the remote can be a con if you use it in your bedroom, yes. But in my case using it in the garage it doesn't bother me at all.
This unit is heavy so don't try to do any installation on your own if you are planning to install personally. One thing to note is the 1 year warranty. Not sure if that's standard on these A/C units but one year for an item that is to be used daily in harsh warm weather like these a/c units deserve more than just 1 year of warranty.
A bit pricey but the specs and options you get along with this A/C unit is pretty fair. I've had the unit for about a month now and have used it at least once a day with no issues. There hasn't been any signs of failure nor do I feel like anythings changed. Sturdy construction and seems like something that'll last for quite awhile.
