Went into Costco today and noticed they have a Maeco 9000 BTU air conditioner for £240 Inc VAT. It's got a two year warranty with an option to extend to five with the manufacturer - think it's manufactured in the UK, if that means anything. It's remote controlled, and is also a heater and humidifier. The box says it cools effectively up to 26 square meters - easily enough for most bedrooms.

It's a neat, slim looking thing but naturally very heavy.

Backed by the unbeatable Costco returns policy.
Might be useful for some.

Looks decent. Most important thing is to ensure an effectively sealed external vent otherwise hot air will just recirculate back in.

Seen this today, looks like a decent piece of kit.

Still in two minds.

Any information regarding if this is local or national?

Have this been spotted in most Costcos?
Open a window.
I looked at one of these and a ecoair, I think that these aren’t particularly reliable on the reviews I was reading so we opted for the eco air and have been impressed. During the heatwave last year these portable A/C’s are worth their weight in gold - above a certain temp no amount of fan and window action is enough to stay cool for sleeping.

Can you share link or full details of product. I am looking to buy one

Water coolers are very effective as well in bringing the temperature down and don't need professional installation. Also they increase humidity as evaporation causes cooling. I would not buy this unless it can be professionally installed. There is no use of saying portable on the package. Who will want to rip every wall or window to make it portable.

I’ve heard the water curtain type ones don’t work in our country as our air is Humid, they do however work well in places such asthe desert.
I have a 10 -12 year old B&Q unbranded 9000 btu air conditioner. It still works ok. Looks exactly like the Delonghi model it was next to on the shop floor. Just no De’Longhi sticker on it. I think it could do with a regas but has old illegal type gas and can’t be refilled.

I place it on a bed side set of draws next to balcony door.Put an old bit of hose in the drain hole and out the door,so no need to empty the water tank. The hose has a sort of offset wedge at the end which I stick out the door. I hold the door closed with a bag of compost, fixing the hose in place.
I cut up a heavy duty building sack and sealed the door with it and a lot of tape. Basic I know.
But it does the job.
when I get my new unit I think I will invest in a Window Seal for Air Conditioners and Exhaust driers Hot Air Stop.

Im looking for a replacement after last summer heatwave, I want to upgrade to a 12000 btu unit.
Looking at Screwfix, Blyss 9000btu £250 A rated or Blyss 12000btu £300 A rated units.
They both have good reviews.

Last year I ordered a TLC electrical own brand 12000btu unit as a replacement.
Turned it on for 3 hours only to find that my old unit was still 10 times better.So returned it.
Just close the curtains during the day and open the window at night. Problem solved!
Will have to grab a couple of these before the inevitable heatwave hits. Last year I was caught off guard and it was horrendous.

Sure thing Amish ian.
I set this up for my Ma yesterday and tried it today - needs 6 hours 'standing time' and it seems decent - 90 day return for Costco stuff which will cover the summer so if it doesn't perform it can go back but I'm very optimistic. It's 2/3rds the size of her old model.

To those who see the 'just open a window', or 'professional installation' type comments and are unsure then I'll just say don't overthink it. If you get an air conditioner like this and hang the pipe out of the window and leave it running for a few hours before bedtime it will turn a balmy, red-hot room into a crisp, cool room where you would need to get under the duvet to be warm enough. It's not slightly cooler - you can get it cool enough to feel almost like a fridge(The room can actually be cooled to about 16C but that feels very cold when you've been hot and sticky all day).

I love knowing that no matter what the weather is like outside I will definitely be getting a decent nights kip.
Which Costo please?
Sorry please which branch did you see in?
Wembley (London) have them
Thanks!
I've seen them in Manchester - I'd imagine nationwide.

It wasn't 'on-offer' - this was the normal price.
I've had an email this evening from Costco saying this will be available in-store for £227.98 from 13th May to 19th May - max 2 per person.
Oh, yeah - just checked my email - I better not tell my Ma then!

Nice one matey - I've edited the price and credited you in the first post.
Picked one up today at the reduced price - applies as £10 off before VAT at the till.
Picked one up from Coventry store last night. there were around 6 left. But did not ask if there were more in stock. Please be aware this is quite a heavy / large item so ask for help if you need it. Yet to try it out as it needs to sit for 6 hours upright before operation. Like a fridge would.
do you just plug and go after you put the external hose on thanks
Yes, no other assembly required. Works on a thermostat to the desired temperature via various settings.

will try it tonight
Tried mine last night too. Found most things fairly straight forward. You need to wait a moment between changing setting and the unit reacting.
I also looked into the drainage. Unless you're using it as a dehumidifier, leave the drain plug in. The unit will display FL (full?) when the water needs draining off. I've read reviews of people removing this and running it, coming back to a puddle and complaining.
If you are planning to spend over £200 on air conditioning I'd save up for wall mount air conditioning.
