Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features. I just bought this yesterday but I love the size of the AC. I have another portable that works great but it is older and twice the size. I have two window units and when they quit I'll be getting two more of these. I can install myself when needed.

Can we set this up on our patio as a freestanding ac

Asked by: Hotttie
We do appreciate your interest in the A/C. We would not recommend the setup of this unit on a patio as adequate ventilation through a window would be need for the unit to perform properly.

How often does the tank get full when constantly running on high will this be something I have to drain daily or will it be two or three days in between drains

Asked by: Olander18
I just bought this model yesterday and it stops running about every 30-45 minutes while on cool and gives me the E5 error code. I have to empty the bottom well in order for it to work. But there is hardly any container made shallow enough to fit there. So then I have to lift the thing up to drain and then it will run for another 30 minutes. I am returning this unit. This can't be right.

This unit has exhaust hose only. For every cubic foot of air exhausted a cubic foot of a hot air will be sucked in from around doors and and etc. Is there anyway to supply this unit fresh outside air?

Asked by: Aspen
I apologize, but no; since this unit is a portable model, and does not actually sit in the window or through the wall, it has no access to a fresh air supply.

Just bought this unit and has been working great, however after a week it started making a very loud clicking or tapping noise.  It almost sounds like something is stuck in it? 

Asked by: Betty5678
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this portable air conditioner. It is recommended to check the exhaust duct to see if anything can be found which might cause obstruction and might get into a fan blade. If this is not the case, then please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 that we might troubleshoot the matter with you.

I meant I'm trying to change the temp on my remote but the unit is not updating. What am I doing wrong? 

Asked by: Stefpinto1
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this air conditioner. The remote control on this device is a standard, infrared controller. As such, the most likely cause for such difficulty would be some manner of obstruction in the line-of-sight communication. If this is not the case, then please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to further troubleshoot the matter.

I'm trying to change the temp on my phone but it's not updating on the unit. What am I doing wrong 

Asked by: Stefpinto1
We appreciate your interest in this portable air conditioner. A phone application would require a network connection to the device it would control. This device does not have a network connection or a WiFi adapter. As such, it appears that this model is not designed for phone control.
