This unit is like all modern window a/c units. They all install and pretty much work the same. Oh, here's a quick tip for all the old heads who think there is too much water in the bottom of the unit, and that they need to drill more holes, to solve a perceived design flaw. Modern window a/c's are supposed to have water at the bottom, the fan is designed with blade extensions to sling the water on to the unit to help cool it, for more efficient operation. Drilling holes in the unit, will in most cases void the warranty.
Last year I moved into an attic apartment it was really really hot in the summer, it was ridiculously hot, that's the correct term. Well I bought a 5000 btu unit thinking it would be enough and boy was I wrong. I suffer like you wouldn't believe, the poor little AC was running full speed all day and night long without even making a dent on the sweltering 100+ degrees. Well, no this year. I bought this AC online after going to the Home Depot store, it was recommended by one of the associates there after I explained my situation. I could not be happier, this is one of the best buys I've ever made, this AC is GREAT, I just have to press the remote and in 5 minutes (I swear to God that's how long i takes) the rooms feels nice and dry, and people, my place is so hot in the summer I think I have a pizza oven in the roof somewhere, in fact, I am the only person who's made it past 3 months there. We just had a scorcher yesterday, It was close to a 100 here in the tri state area with a 75 dewpoint, that's extremely uncomfortable, when I got home after a hard day's work my room was nice and cool thanks to the automatic on timer that turns the AC on 30 minutes before I get there.
One of the best features of the AC is the 'Dry Air' mode that acts as an dehumidifier and it doesn't make the compressor run all the time since relative humidity is what really makes the room feel hot and sticky. I had never, even in the hottest day, run this unit above the low cool - dry mode, it is so powerful and efficient, it really doesn't have to, so it is really good for saving energy, this AC can pay by itself in 6 month.
The only drawback (there's always one) it's the noise. is a bit in loud side they have to work on that, That however... I can live with as long as I can sleep as good as I am doing now with this AC unit. So, if you need to cool an area that gets really hot and it needs powerful AC where central air is not possible, this is it. I am sure you can cool an entire house with this baby.
A bit heavy, do not install without an AC support bracket, got one at home depot for 15 bucks, not a big deal.
Well there you have it, This AC is good if you live in a hot place that a normal run of the mill mainstream brand won't cool unless is a central air or a 220 volt 18 K BTU unit .
Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Stylish, Good Size & Weight, Durable, Easy to Clean, Lots of Features, High Quality, Nice Design
We got this unit to cool the garage during the peak of the Summer months. Although larger than what this unit is supposedly intended to cool, the air in the garge would get 30 degrees cooler than it was when the unit was started within an hour or less. Installation was very easy. It could be done by anyone strong enough to lift the unit. The remote is a nice touch, although we don't use it. It notifies you when you need to clean the filter, which is a very slick thing.
Great air conditioner. I live in a 650 sq ft 1br and this cools down the whole place in less than an hour. It has a remote which is very convenient. It also has the energy saver mode which is great for night time. I was expecting a much higher energy bill than what I got! LOVE IT!
Although I've never heard the brand name of SPT, this A/C unit is surprisingly an excellent "work horse". This particular 12000 BTU unit easily cools 2 rooms--one large room 15x25 and one small 12x12! It was very easy to install! It took less than 20 minutes from unpackaging to securing in place in the window to power on. That's all there was to it! I love it and I'm extremely pleased with it. No more 91 degree room just before going to bed--it's now a comfortable 72 degree room! What a big difference!
Pros: Energy Efficient, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Lots of Features, High Quality
We've got it cooling our kitchen, about 15 x 15, and an adjacent family room, a little bigger than that. We have "vaulted" ceilings, and we've been using this unit in the dead of August Summer in North Texas - a string of weeks over 100 F every single day and far into the night. The unit is so nice and compact and wonderful esp. when we cook in the kitchen, it really makes a big difference. We are very pleased with the unit. No problems whatsoever. We rough-calculated operating cost at about $1.00 per day running about 7 to 10 hours per day. It blows very, very strongly, too. Construction quality is very good.
It is a real good AC that has a vent to the outside where you can bring in fresh air. That feature was not found on most AC we looked at (some store said it was not made anymore). It has plenty of power and buttons are simple. Only problem I can see is the pull for the vent is thin plastic that looks like it could break real easy. Have not used the remote that came with it so I can't say much about it. Might be a little pricey but AC works for us.
This ac has worked great for us so far! First heat wave and it cooled the space better than I expected! We are using an older 10,000 BTU and this one for about 1,600 square feet of 1 level long and wide space. The only issue I had was that the directions for sides weren't great. It took me a while to figure out what I was doing wrong.
Pros: Durable, Lots of Features, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
needed help putting it in the window but it fits perfectly. It only took about 15 minutes to start cooling. It nicely cools my whole very warm upstairs apartment on the low setting. Highly recommend this unit.
The only reason I didn't give this unit a 5 star rating is because of the noise. You really need to work on the sound attenuation. Otherwise; this is an excellent a/c unit. It really cools extremely well. I have to keep changing the temperature upwards instead of downwards. What a major difference, especially during the July humidity. Easy installation.
Pros: Lots of Features, Easy to Use, Sturdy, High Quality, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
I am very satisfied so far with the SPT 12,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner I purchased. I have an area that is around 17'X26' with an adjorning hallway, bathroom and bedroom. The unit cools the whole area including another bathroom, den, kitchen, 2 bedrooms and living room. It can be felt in the entire house. It does not take a long time to feel the results. I am very pleased.
I am someone who has tried over 10 different brands and none compare to this brand and unit. It comes completely ready no assembly with screws or anything. Just stick the side panel on and put in window. It also has lasted longer then its counter parts. I have 3 very furry dogs and the hair gets sucked in and the others broke but not this one. Also I have a living room converted to a bed room that's huge and it cools the whole room.
Pros: Energy Efficient, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Durable, Powerful, Easy to Clean, Good Size & Fit, High Quality, Eco-Friendly, Nice Design, remote
This unit was purchased after returning a Haier portable 12,000 BTU air conditioner. I was a little skeptical of the brand name at first but tried it after reading the reviews. I am very satisfied with the performance and features of this unit so far. It cools much better than the Haier portable and seems to run much quieter also.
Pros: Lots of Features, High Quality, Easy to Install
