Would you be able to tell me if this is loud at all?

1.2m hose! You're gonna need this pretty close to a window to be able to extract the hot air....
#5
it is fairly loud - would struggle to sleep with it on

It would be very cheap and easy to change that to a longer hose if required

most portable air conditioners are.

my one is blemingloud as heck. but usually you can reduce the fan speed
#8
When argos says 21 days, does it literally mean 21 days or is it "upto"? Anyone have experience?
#9
Yeh fairly loud but i think it'd be easier to sleep with the noise from this rather than the heat!!!
I was actually cold erlier when i was at my pc and this was on!

Yeh a slight downside is the length of the pipe.
I have mine right by a window so its no problem at all but i guess you can get a longer pipe if needed.
A very good unit for the price if you ask me :)
#10
I would think they are gonna sell out quick at this price.
Saw some ads in the paper today and i think the cheapest was £149.
Don't forget this has been reduced from £274.19 to £99.99!!
#11
Could do with an air-con unit for my garage/office conversion but there are no windows available. Are there any 'condenser' portable air-con units available? You know like the condenser type tumble driers? Please excuse the dumb question
#12

Put it like this - if there were something that meant you didn't dump the heat to the outside, then the room wouldn't cool down! (in fact, it would heat up).

Not the same as a tumble drier or dehumidifier where you dump moisture, not heat.

is the challenge Challenge Portable Air Conditioner with Heater 12,000 BTU as good?

It is an identical unit just + heater. i personally dont see the point because why use such a big machine for heating and a decent blow heater could be bought for around £20.
#16
Do not forget Argos charge £5.80 for delivery so £105.79

good point its a bit of a monster to use as a heater. :thumbsup:
#18
Just what I need, but the hose is too short, anyone knows where or how much is the longer hose please?

Don't forget the 1.5% from Quidco, should offset that to the delivery charge :).

I've got this one and it is loud, even on the low setting.
#20
We have ours on all night and yes it is loud, but it doesn't affect our sleeping at all, in fact I find it helps:thumbsup:
#21
I know this could be kinda off topic.... but:

- Any other recommendations for quieter units?
- Energey efficiency... best is 'A' right?
#22
So shouldn't this deal be cold instead of hot?

(think about it)
#23
Hi,

Just wondered if anyone who has the unit could let me know about the dehumidifier function:
What size tank does it have?
What is the average litres per day removal (hopefully quoted on literature!)


Thanks for any help!

#24
could some with experience of these please help me out..

1) how much would it roughly cost to run one of these per hour?

2) how does the hose out the window work? do you have to have a window open? (would seem pointless if you do)

sorry fot he noob questions but never seen one in use before!

1) If it runs at 3KW (as in the description) then about 30p an hour

2) Yes you can poke the hose out of a window but obviously only open it enough for the flue to fit and the smaller the window the better!
#27
How do you work out price per hour from KW used?
#28
you're probably on about 10p per KW hour.
KW hour is using a 1KW device for 1 hour.

So for 1 hour use, a 3KW air con will use 3KW hours.

ie 3 x 10p = 30p

Simples.

I'm not sure, but I'd be a bit wary.

If it takes 21 days to deliver our summer will be over. :lol:

Ordered a bed/mattress few weeks ago and expected delivery date was 1st July however was delivered last week.

Guess its a rough estimate & depends on whether there is any stock with the supplier.

KW hour is using a 1KW device for 1 hour.

So for 1 hour use, a 3KW air con will use 3KW hours.

ie 3 x 10p = 30p

Simples.


It actually used 657.5 watts. 3KW is the cooling capacity, air conditioners are very efficient. So it would costs around 6-7p per hour to run.

or how about a 14000 BTU one for extra few quid???

In store and home delivery = out of stock!

I saw that before posting but this is a deal of the moment.
#35
is this one that you have to fill up with water? Cos those aren't very good, but if it actually works like a Air Conditioning unit I NEED to buy this.

I am fairly sure that this isn't.

My one it generates water within the tank which you eventually need to drain out but it is a proper air conditioner

No they're called air coolers, they're not air conditioners.

i have an airforce 12000 btu unit which i got from b and q 3 years ago its superb wouldnt be without it and neither would my 2 persian cats.:)

Hi all, in reference to extending the pipe you should AVOID doing this at all cost - the pipe is used to carry the hot air outside and therefore gets very warm itself - use a long length of it and you have an air conditioner cooling the air and a nice warm pipe acting as a heater !

Trust me, I have a Siemens portable unit and extended the pipe - really effects the performance and no doubt the bill for running it.

And on this topic if you want a quieter one ( quieter, rather than quiet ) I would try to pick up a second hand Siemens one - they dont bring them to the UK any more but they are really good and look nice too with a real aluminium front on it.
