This will have 15% extra off from Friday so don't buy now.....!

How good is this one though?

2.47 kW cooling output. Does that mean it takes 2470 watts to power it while it's working ?

9000 btu is plenty good enough for an average room, though with all these aircons i'd suggest that you drill the hole into the outside wall, otherwise it's like aircon in your car with the window open, loses efficiency..

58p an hour for me

If set to max it will use 2.47Kw/h and yes it will require 2470 watts of power so you'll need to unwind the extension cable if you use one

Are there more energy efficient air conditioning units ?. No doubt they would cost more to buy in the first place but would hopefully cost half the price to run ?

Great price but seems very expensive to run.
10 hours = £5.80 a day!

But on my plan if I use over 225 kWh's then I get reduced electricity at 10.007p per kWh :thumbsup:

kW cooling output is not the same thing as power consumption. If you take a look at this
ukofficedirect.co.uk/air…htm range of units you'll see they use between 800 - 1500 ... and that would only be on the coldest setting.

Sounds similar to my British Gas tariff.
After 1st 125 units, get the rest of the quarter for around 9p a unit

The government or watch dog should enforce it so it's the other way round you use more than 200 units, then you pay more for you electricity would help fight global warming and hence a need for a air conditioners :thumbsup:

Anyone got one to comment on how expensive they are to run?

Funny. Just got an email saying it's been reduced to £99.99!?!

Expired?

Saw the signs for them instore yesterday. Member of staff said the white one is £89.99 (from 189.99) and the silver/black is £99.99 (from £199.99)

Looking at which reports, per hour should only cost about 10p for portable aircon units so as these are apparantly 58p an hour, I'm out

Lumoruk said it was 58p an hour. Now I'm confuzzled

He's getting his outputs mixed up with his inputs!
