Poor at drying the air & very cumbersome to move We have the WA-1220M model of this product (virtually identical). If you stand right in front on it, up to about 5 feet away, it's nice. However, it has several drawbacks:
1. It isn't very good at drying the air; evaporation is needed for effective air-conditioning (whether in your car or your home).
2. It must be drained of the water it does pull from the air, and draining the unit is very cumbersome. It comes with a small flexible plastic tube that has to be connected to the rear bottom of the unit; the other end must be lower in order to drain or the unit really does very little and although there's an indicator light that will come on if the unit is quite full of water, it's very rare that the light comes on (and it only does so LONG after the unit has stopped cooling the air). We have taken to wrapping a large towel around the far end of the tube to collect water that drains, but basically you must tilt the heavy unit backwards to try to drain it. This is not particularly effective but it must be done.
3. It has wheels, but it doesn't roll easily (it's hard to push or pull it in a straight line and the wheels are so small even getting over a low rug is difficult.
4. Moving the unit up or down a single step can be accomplished by one person but since the entire unit is made of very smooth, slippery plastic (it has handles but they're very shallow & not helpful), it's more safely accomplished with two people.
5. Consider that this unit, while mobile, sacrifices a good window seal. The large exhaust hose (which pumps the hot air outside) resembles a telescoping dryer hose that easily falls out of the backside of the unit and is awkward to extend evenly. The unit comes with a smallish piece of foam with a cutout hole for the hose. However, you are left with having to find some way to block the rest of whatever window you choose to put the hole into. We use a large carboard box panel and cut a hole out of, then duct-tape the box into the window opening to block out air seepage. As you can imagine, it looks pretty tacky.
Can't handle the load I'm an air conditioning contractor and purchased this item to cool my insulated garage. When I finally got it together and turned it on, the compressor didn't come on for a few minutes. When it did, it cooled like it should. But after about 5 minutes the compressor turned off. Probably on high pressure. It was only 88 in the garage. This thing should be able to handle that load. The controls are easy to figure out but the air outlet only adjusts left or right. You can't change the discharge direction up or down. So the cool air (when the compressor is running) hits me in the thighs, I would rather like to be able to direct the air discharge up and across the area for better circulation. Overall, this is a big disappoinment. This item maybe useful as a supplemental A/C, like in a room that doesn't cool well. But don't depend on it to cool a room by itself. It won't be able to handle the load. ...more info
