American Comfort ACW300C 10000 BTU Portable AirConditioner
Worked for 2 summers
This worked well for two summers then suddenly some horrid smell started coming from it. I had the maintenance man inspect it because I could not figure out where it was coming from within the machine. He said the machine was fine and couldn't understand where the smell was coming from either, but it was unbearable. Unfortunately, after two summers of use, this will go to the dump.
I bought this less than a year ago and now it won't function. It's difficult to return something as heavy as this but I will do it. I bought an Amcor portable air conditioner from QVC 5 years ago and it still works like a charm. I plan to order another portable AC but not this one. Paying $400 for less than a year's use is not something I recommend. BThomas
Great !! LOVE IT!!!!---BUT Bummed!
Seems to work well. However, the digital display doesnt work it only shows half of the numbers and thats right outta the box so Im bummed about that. You cant read the temperature at all. Gonna now try to figure out how to get it fixed. If a returns in order I'll be bummed, in that case I can live with it, lol!! I have a really small bedroom. This unit cools it down fast and keeps me very happy! My summer temps in my room alone are over 100 if that helps anyone. It is loud but i expected that, I can tune it out. Its really no bother. Window kit was a piece of cake, as well as putting it together. Instructions could have been a little more detailed. Im a single mom and was able to get it up the stairs on my own. Rolls nice! LOVE LOVE IT!!!!! Im only giving 4 stars because the digital read out doesnt work!
I'm in TX. 9 a.m., 99 degrees, 105 by end of day. I am very very familiar with this unit. Set up in 15 minutes. One hour later den and hallway are cooled to 84 from 94. I very seldom use my central air. I have two other portable ACs, bought from QVC within last 3 years. Both are running perfectly. I expect the same from this one as it is identical to the other units. Yes, they have decreased my electric bill. Last month 164.00, Three yrs ago, same time frame 317.00. Selective cooling. This keeps me from running central air to cool 3 rooms I'm not using. Oh, and this new unit is quieter than the 3 yr old one. I am using them in both sliding and casement windows. If you have a clothes dryer exaust in your house, as I do, this portable can be vented through it. Great thing about these portable are so versatile. I'm am so glad to see this product back. Accordingly, the unit weighs according to size. Another improvement here, this unit weighs less than my 12,000 BTU unit. I'm 70, and have no difficulty with moving the units around. Due to QVC's excellent prices and of course, the easy pay plan, I've decided to purchase several units. The savings in my electric bill over the last 3 years have more than paid for these units. Also, my units have heaters, another savings in the winter.
