We purchased a house without air conditioning. After getting quotes to have a central system installed we decided to try to tough it out. After two summers of above average and record heat we decided to try a window ac. We were a little skeptical since we had never had a window unit before. This unit was priced right and easy to install. It may be a little undersized for the area we are trying to cool, but it does a very decent job of keeping us comfortable. It is quiet and trouble free so far. We plan on getting one more of these to put in our upstairs bedroom.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight
Open the undamaged shipping box and put it in the window. Unit seemed alright but noticed that it took an unusual hit in the front. The force broke the bottom 2 tabs holding the control panel. The removable front grill was split in one corner and the surviving tabs were bent to the side and a few broken off completely. Both the shipping and inner box were in perfect condition. The damage must have happened at the factory before it was packaged. And it must have been a good hit to break the control panel loose. Now these are discontinued and I can't get a replacement.
I've had my air conditioner only 3 mos. but when in use I couldn't be more comfortable. And I love the energy saver button. It shuts off when desired temperature is reached. Thanks,so far,for being a great product!
Pros: Lots of Features, Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight
we have this unit in the downstairs of our house- the ceilings are very tall however it cools the entire downstairs. it is a little bit loud but not something that we can't talk while in the room or have to blast the TV. definitely worth the money- great product!
Pros: Durable, Lots of Features, Easy to Use, Sturdy, High Quality, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight
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.
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.
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!
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.
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
Bought two of these to replace the 1 and 2 season/throw away Kenmore units I had that were full of black mold. Am impressed with the overall quality, quietness and ventilated outer case on these SPTs. Hopefully, there will be no mold issues. Am a bit disappointed in the cheap styrofoam insulation inside as well as the really bush-league remote. SPT got great reviews and I'm hoping to get much more than only 2 seasons use from them. Wish me luck.
Pros: Durable, Sturdy, High Quality, Nice Design
Cons: styrofoam insulation, poorly designed remote
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
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.
