Poor construction, faulty compressor, will never buy again. I have had 3 of these units over the past 3 years; however, I only purchased one of them. I purchased this item about 3 years ago. It worked great for about 8 months. I didn't even have to drain the water. It just worked. Then, the compressor blew out. Because it had a 5 year warranty on the compressor, I called the company, and they actually sent me out a new unit. I can definitely say that my experience with their customer service was great. So, I got the new unit a few days later, plugged it in, but the compressor on that one did not work, so they went me my third one, which was about a year ago. Today, the compressor on that one went out.
In addition, there is a very significant design flaw. When you do have to drain the water from the unit, the drain is almost on the bottom of the unit. When you unplug the hole in order to attach the drainage pipe, water leaks (floods) out of the unit. My carpet has been soaked numerous times over the past year. For anyone who does actually buy this unit, I would recommend (1) build a box about 6 inches high which is large/strong enough to place the unit on top of, (2) connect the drainage hose permanently (use duct tape if you have to, that's what I did), (3) place a bucket at the back of the unit and put the other end of the drainage hose into the bucket. This way, the unit can drain continuously and you don't have to worry about it flooding the carpet or floor when you pull out the plug when it is full. Just let it drain continually....more info
Not worth the money I bought this unit about a week ago and I will probably send it back tomorrow. I can live with how loud it is but it simply does not cool the air! I've let it run for the past 12 hours and, while I haven't had problems with the water tray despite high humidity, it's only about 5 degrees cooler in the little room than it is outside. In other words, it does a bit better than a regular fan but costs way more to buy and, I'm sure, to power. For a 10,000 BTU rating, it doesn't do half the job of my old 5,200 BTU window unit. I've called the company twice and no one has gotten back to me yet. ...more info
