The quoted sizes dont match the images.

Excellent deal, I've had a similar unit for three years now.

Only problem is the noise.

For info on BTUs, here's my post to a recent 9000BTU Unit (hotukdeals.com/ite…-99) ...

Blasphemous;5956121

To determine your requirements: Measure the room to find its square … To determine your requirements: Measure the room to find its square footage (multiply length x width) It's in Square Feet because I'm old School! ;-) There are quite a few variables to consider such as the number of windows, number of people that will be in the room, which direction the room is facing, ceiling height, etc. But here's a rough guide to the size of Air Conditioning Unit (AC), required for the size of room you have.We'll start with the 'Area To Be Cooled' which as I have mentioned, I have set out in Square Feet. So... If the Area to be Cooled = 350' to 400' then the AC Unit required would be a 9,000BTU. And the pattern repeats... If your room is 400' to 450' then you require a 10,000BTU AC Unit. 450' to 550' = 12,000BTU. 500' to 700' = 14,000BTU. 700' to 1,000' = 18,000BTU.As I say, this is a rough guide and there are many variables to consider, some of which I have mentioned above, but this gives you the 'at least' BTU Unit that you require. If there are variables such as large windows and/or a lot of people in the room, then obviously the BTU's need to be increased. Go to the next unit size up if you do have large windows and/or those windows face toward the sun.



Hope it helps.

ordered mine from curries. voted hot

Does anyone know if this unit needs an external pipe to feed out to a window?

Would serious consider this for my office. Heat added!!

Id say you would need a fair bit more than these quoted figures, a new building would require 30-40 watts per cubic metre, this would stack up if you have a new build with good insulation, but you can double that for older buildings. Anything built before 2001 when the Part L2 building regs came in you can go up as much as 3x for 10 year plus buildings.

looks like an Amcor Nanomax K series model.
U.S. user manual in PDF format ]here.
U.S. installation video guide ]here.

Be careful with these portable AC units - in my experience the 9K units are only effective is small rooms where you can effectively exhaust them and they are sealed / lack solar intrusion.

Really only a spot cooler.

Only really ever had success with a B&Q Portable 14000 BTU unit in my standard sized living room that has a south facing window (again proper exhaust outlet) - in which after 10 minutes it feels 'air conditioned'.

Let's be honest you need a heat issue (and therefore a proper cooler) to justify the power consumption.

What about windows which open out? I assume it will be much less effective.

Few Q;s if anyone could answer for some rep

1.Can you get topcashback if you collect from currys?
2. Do you have to top this up? or?

1) Open window gaps will severely affect the efficiency

2) All these units (apart from the twin unit models which still have a hose to an external unit) must have an external exhaust - they are just a heat exchanger and that heat needs to go somewhere !
:thumbsup:

Does it have to have an external hose etc ? I needed one for a rooms which can't have an external hose, one has no windows and one has windows which can't just be left open

Edit: Not sure if it's the exact one in the video hmm .. my windows aren't like that.

@mdcdeve

2) All these units (apart from the twin unit models which still have a hose to an external unit) must have an external exhaust - they are just a heat exchanger and that heat needs to go somewhere !

They will only pump out very hot air out the back with no exhaust attached - defeating the purpose of having the unit.

You can drill a hold in the wall and vent it that way, not sure if it comes with wall adaptors, if not you can use a tumble drier venting kit for a nice and neat instalation

Amazing bargain. From the dimensions doesnt seem like it's too small either.

Does anyone know if this de-humidifies too?

Bargain... but not as good as the Argos 12000 BTU deal for £99.99 a month or so ago.

9000 will only be efficient in a smallish room but will be OK if that is all you need.

the Argos deal is now £137 which is still a good deal at half price.]http//ww…501

As I stated in my OP, it's a 'rough guide' and is affected by a number of issues such as Windows, Ceiling Height, Insulation (as you say), etc etc. For those that have no knowledge of ACs, BTUs, Watts etc, then at least it gives some guidance for them to follow/ask questions. I am merely looking at this subject from a point of having over 20 years experience of the building/engineering trade and ACS qualification. Perhaps you'd like to further enlighten me and the rest of the posters with a better 'rough guide'?

Something no-one has yet mentioned but which is very important with these toy air conditioners: the air they need to exhaust has to be replenished, so they are constantly sucking hot air back into the room. Forget about increasing efficiency by sealing around the windows - if you seal up your room these things will simply not work at all. They're inherently inefficient.

Currys in store had loads of these and other brands all clearance

Wouldn't mind getting one of these, but I don't have a conventional window such as those which goes up and down.

The type I've got is sort of like double glazing, where you could only open from one side - similar to a door. The other problem is the limited space between the window frame and side of window.

Does anyone have any suggestions to get round this problem? Would I be able to maybe use an alternative exhaust hose where it's flat(ish) for the last 0.5 meter to hang out of the window?

Any advice appreciated

If there so rubbish why were they £400 and rated 9 out of 10 when released?

I dont understand all the negative comments about them.

Because those rating them probably hadn't had their next electricity bill... :roll:

I dont understand all the negative comments about them.

Unless I'm mistaken and this thing has an air intake as well as extract hose, then I was stating a fact - they are a flawed design.

There is a challenge air con unit at argos, it was £200 but its only £99 now.
It has 12000 btu and its been great so far.
Plus a few quid off quidco makes it a good deal.

If you want the extra 3000 btu its only £20 more

That Argos deal has expired now but its still half price at £137. See my post above. Strangely the 12000 one with a heater built in is also half price and cheaper at £122. I got one when they were £99 when I upgraded and took my old 9000 BTU to work to use in my small office.(cost £240 3 years ago and was a bargain then!)

12000 BTU cuts the mustard for a decent size room in no time whereas 9000 is really only suitable for a smallish room.

I seal the hoppper window with the exhaust fan sticking out with thick foam and make sure the doors are shut so it is mainly circulating cool air in the room rather than sucking as much warm air in as someone previous commented. But I have to agree that most efficient ones are the split units but then they cost a bit more.

This is what confuses me - where does the air come from that the exhaust hose throws out? For the device to work, it will have to suck in air from somewhere so by sealing around the window you are merely getting warm air coming in under the door or somewhere. It can circulate cold air all it likes but if it doesn't get new air to replenish what it evacuates from the room then it won't work at all. If the room is quite well sealed so it struggles to suck air in, then it won't work as efficiently so you lose out in a different way.

Be sensible no one seals up a room airtight, not if they want to live, there's always air coming in.
They do work, the temp in the room will be below ambient, what more do you want for £80.:roll:

Its a myth that the air conditioner is just shovelling the warm air out of the room outside. A simple big fan in a box would do that. The air conditioner works like a refridgerator compressing the air and passing it over heat exchange/cooling coils in the unit extracting warm moisture and expelling only some of the surplus warm air out of the exhaust hose and recirculating the cold air back in the room. Yes some "new air" does need to replenish the exhaust air leaving the room but the unit is capable of circulating the colder air at a far faster rate. The longer the unit is on and the more sealed the room is the cooler the air being recirculated through it becomes. Just shut the bedroom door and the room will cool really quickly. Leave it wide open and it takes forever in much the same as you wouldn't drive with the air con on in your car and leave the windows open.

The air coming out of the hose is just a breeze compared to blast of cold air coming out of the cooling vent. The higher the power rating in BTU the more capable the unit is of being able to cool air at a faster and efficient rate....

..... or something like that!! :thinking:
