    Dear H&G Enthusiast,
    I too was disapointed by the results that I obtained. I used the PAC260 for almost 8 years, 16 hours a day, 7 days a week. I got immediated relief when I turned it on. I got 20-35 degrees of temperature relief and 20-45% humidity releif from this machine. it to 20-30minutes to get this relief. I never used the water in my PAC290 and got this kind of releif. I was told that the PAC260 and the PAC290 as I used it were the same. they clearly are not the same. Another issue that you did not adress which I hope you will address if the air filter provided with the machine. In my old PAC290 the filter would be caked with particles after a week. This one is as clean as th eday I got th emachine installed several days ago. Are you finding this to be the case, I would appreciate knowing your result. It is a great machine, but does not quite live up to the PAC290 that I purchased in 1995.

    We were disappointed to find out after purchasing this unit that it takes a long time to cool a room. It's not like a window unit that pumps out frigid air for quick relief. For the 150-square-foot office in our home, it takes 6-8 hours to lower the temperature from the 80s to the low 70s. But none of this machine's slow-cooling characteristics are mentioned in any of the materials.

  • Cooling takes a long time
    We were disappointed to find out after purchasing this unit that it takes a long time to cool a room. It's not like a window unit that pumps out frigid air for quick relief. For the 150-square-foot office in our home, it takes 6-8 hours to lower the temperature from the 80s to the low 70s. A Pinguino rep we contacted said that the slow cooling is part of the design--the unit is also a dehumidifier and uses the collected moisture as part of the cooling process. The unit does have a timer so you can program it to turn on before you get home or before you get up in the morning to get a jump on the house heating up. But none of this machine's slow-cooling characteristics are mentioned in any of the materials....more info
