Comment:
We installed this air conditioner in the living room. While it was running we found it difficult to hear over when carrying on a conversation or watching television. In a large living room it was more than enough to cool the room. The tempature on the unit didn't reflect actual tempature. Instead we used it as a guide and not the actual tempature.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Bought this for a 208 SQ. FT. room as the one it replaced a 5000 BTU was not cooling the living room. Found out that the 5000 BTU was to small for the living room. The installation was quick and easy and had it up and running in under 20 minutes. Turned it on and after 30 minutes it was nice and cool in the living room. Left it on over night and came into the living room in the moring and felt like i walked into a walk in freezer thats how cold it was. People say it's loud but its loud cause its a bigger BTU and the fan has to spin faster to push more air out to cool bigger size rooms.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
