good price

Has any one looked at the £149.99 on the same site? Which one would you say is better value? Both are half price!

They are both 12,000 BTU but the more expensive one has a remote control and timers with a display, plus an 'evaporation booster' which should make the thing more efficient, or so it claims

I would go for the cheaper one I think, as these are unlikely to be a year round thing mine is stored most of the year.

3.3KW?!! I didn't realise just how much energy these things consume!

They don't use that amount of energy - that's the amount of equivilent cooling it produces.

It's basically a heat pump in reverse.

I would expect it to be rated about 1200W - 1500W

Thanks voted hot. I was thinking about buying one of these but thought I'd left it too late for big discounts.

Should add that this outfit expects you to schlep along to the shop to buy one!

A few things to bear in mind about these domestic air-conditioners. They are noisy and this model is VERY noisy. If cold air comes out of the front, then hot air comes out of the back. This makes no mention of ducting to pipe the hot air away, if it isn't included then it could be expensive. Also you can't cool a room if your air conditioner is pumping out equal amounts of hot/cold air into the same space. The weight is a factor when moving these things around, the wheels are fine on a ground floor, but getting it upstairs could be a problem.
It's a good price for an air conditioner.

Hehe, it can't put out the same amount of hot and cold air, there is an inefficiency in the compression cycle which means you will be "worse off" - same idea as why you can't lower your room temperature by opening your fridge door.

Most mobile air conditioners have a flexible, plastic pipe that clips on the reverse so that the hot air can be vented out of the room. I'm sure this unit will be the same even though it doesn't mention this.
(As you say - it can't work without one)

Edit: it looks very similar to this unit from Argos (same owner as homebase) which says it has 1.2m hose to remove hot air.

Edit 2: See also the air conditioning buying guide on the homebase site which confirms the exhaust hose comes with all their units.

You say this model is "VERY noisy", but you obviously don't have one, or you would know it comes with a hose. What are you basing this on?

I would be interested to here from someone who actually as one how noisy it is.
#12
I'm using the fact that the local Homebase had one on display and the sales assistant very kindly started it up, as that was a demonstartion model the sales assistant couldn't find the box it came with and couldn't confirm that hoses and fittings were included. At the time this model was a Managers Special as it was shop soiled and was available "as was" for £95.
Is that specific enough for you? Or why don't you actually go down to the store and tell us how noisy you think it is!!!!!!!

I have the less powerful model which I bought a few weeks back and my room sounds like Heathrow, but it's worth it.
#14
dont think its fair to judge a shop soiled model that has been kicked poked, but good comeback though :)
#15
I bought one of these a few weeks ago, marked down to 'half price'. Whether you believe that or not, it is a proper air conditioner, rating at 1400W, with (I think) 12000BTU. Whatever, its efficient, but is very noisy - you can barely stay in the same room, and unless you were blind drunk could not sleep with it on. It does have a flexi hose in the box, at least 1.2m. Good value at that price, but it is massive, no remote control and as I said, noisy.
#16
I have a similar unit for nearly 3 years. used it half a month every year. yes it is noisy, but to choose between - A. hot+silent B.cool+noisy , I would go for B cos theres still options like ear plugs... :-D
#17
Ive had mine on now 3 nights running , I usually place it on landing and have it blowing in my room ...noise aint so bad then and i wake up at slightest noise , when it goes off and on though thats when it wakes me up as once it reaches the desired temp it goes silent then all of a sudden it goes very loud again lol

So wot i do now , i just select the lowest temp 16c and it blows cold air out non stop without stopping , not sure how much this is going cost me to run though?

Not sure that you should run these things on maximum cool all the time, correct me if I'm wrong but it may damage the AC unit as it can never get to the temp you set it at.

but who cares really ..if the unit can do that temp then it can run on that setting else it would be made to be set at 18oc to protect it :whistling: and if it goes wrong then you got a new one on warrenty for next summer :p

True, more likly to be a refund if this weather keeps up. only reason I mention it was I had one and took it back because it seemed to mix the coolant in the cold air and I had been hammering that at full.
