Great cooler

Tcoop1068 9/16/2019

I bought this to help save on PGE high Ca bills. It took two of us to put together. Everything seemed sturdy. Works good blows well. Like the remote. Bought for the newsroom to sleep better and it helps a lot.

So happy we purchased this unit

Sharon Lee 9/8/2019

We live in an area where a lot of homes do not have AC as we dont need it but there are several weeks when it does get too warm for overhead fans only. This unit was easy to install and can easily be moved when we dont need it It works great and is an attractive unit.

Need better instructions

Alan37 8/12/2019

Your instructions guide is too simple. Your guide shows you how to put the heat vent tube into the window but it does not address the issue of how you position the heat vent into the window. Inproper position of the heat tube if not positioned right may cause the heat to fly up the window and back into the room. At first I could not feel the coiling until I saw how the heat was coming back into the room. I had to reposition the heat vent and stop the heat from flowing back into the room at the top of window. Running the AC itself was easy to figure out. Once I solved the heat issue the AC works great. It is a shame that instruction booklets have gotten very thin with as little info as position in order to save cost of print the booklet. We pay a lot of money for the product and have to deal with I hope I can figure out what the company is trying to say. Why do you put the bottom drain plug so close to the bottom of AC. Its hard to get something to catch the water when it is a finger width above the floor. Everytime I enpty it I get water on the floor.

Met my needs

zimmerperson 8/4/2019

I bought a unit for twice my actual square footage because of the vaulted ceiling in a second floor loft. This room also has a low wall on one side that allows both heat from the first floor to rise into the loft and some of the cold air to bleed off to the lower floor. At the present time the unit has made the loft area livable at 95 degree weather outside. The temperature was down to 80 degrees with help from an oscillating tower fan. I will be putting up a movable blind system to eliminate the low wall problem which should help the unit to further reduce the temperature in the loft. The setup of the window exhaust was very easy

LASTED THREE DAYS

mamjamma 8/1/2019

I dont know why I continue to trust LG products. I have spent over $6000 + over the past two years alone on both Portable and Window type EXPENSIVE air Conditioners . And the portable ones end up leaking and going into the dry mode all on its own which created the machine to fill up with condenced water. My $800.00 Portable unit compressor went and that water ended up soaking my bedroom run. I nned not say more.

HotSandy6356 8/1/2019

There is no central air in my house and it was impossible to cook or sleep all summer. This unit not only cools the kitchen and dining room but reaches my bedroom. It takes all the humidity out of the air. It holds the room temperature even after I come home from work and use the oven.

Good AC Unit

Sadam 7/26/2019

This unit is bulky and obviously takes up more living space than a window unit but it does a nice job cooling and its surprisingly quiet aside from the blowing which is to be expected. Note that the end of the exhaust which vents through a window to the outside is covered with a screen with openings approx. 1 square-inch each which makes me wonder whether insects or other small animals can enter. Also my unit vents out of a side of my home that gets the brunt of wind and precipitation. Since the exhaust screen is not hooded or louvered in any way what will keep the rain out especially if the unit isnt running?

The A/C quickly cools our bedroom regardless of how warm it is. We like the oscillating feature but it can only be activated with the remote. When using the remote to turn on the oscillating feature the fan speed changes from high to low requiring a second step to reset the speed to high. The remote screen and buttons are difficult to read. The drawbacks are more than offset by the quick cooling action.

I made this purchase for our guest bedroom. The room is 12 x 16. It takes about an hour to cool off the room. Installation was easy for our awning window by placing plywood above the provided Louvers. The unit is on the loud side but that was expected beforehand by reading the product specs. I would recommend to a friend.

Just bought this at Home Depot. I like it but. I opened it and started to take everything out of the box. And saw it was used. The foam seals were already attached but it was stripped off The diffuser had a crack on it. Instead of bringing this heavy unit back in the box. And returning it. I kept it and I like it. But not happy about it being used.
