Are these any good?

dont fancy shelling out if only do half a job
Edited by: "Billythebubble" 28th Jun
Not sure how good they are. Think it's a stonker of a price for an air conditioner. I have tried googling for reviews and warranty info but no luck either positive or negative.
Does this come with a remote control?
Do these uses alot of Electricity?

Get a wall air conditioning unit, permanent solution. I'll wait till winter though due to prises.

Sort of defeats the point if you have to open the window!

Lots of sites around to assist with this, you need to get the room measurements etc

I have read online that some air conditioning units come with a night mode but that it's better to reduce the temperature before then as any unit will produce noise even on night mode. Apparently some places provide noise test results on request.

White noise machine is always an option too.

This looks like a rebranded Tristar AC-5477 Air conditioner

Yep, and then you wake up to early due to the light coming in around the curtains where the hose is fed through!!
Portable Air Conditioners - Why you shouldn't like them youtube.com/wat…42s
They're loud but they work and your'e supposed to seal up your window. Ideally sure we'd have split units or the window ones they have abroad but as we have neither these do the job. I wouldn't be without mine especially in a heatwave and this is a bargain.
I have a portable aid conditioning unit, and I've tried a few before I settled on mine. They're basically all the same, the only difference being their power/ability to cool a room. I urge you to get one that is rated for the room you want to cool, or even upsize. If you get a small unit it will not wort at all really. 7000btu is only really suitable for small box rooms. I have a 14000 BTU unit and it is able to cool my living/dining room by about 3 Deg c. Which is great. And yes, you do need to seal your window. You can get a window seal kit off eBay for about £16 which works really well.
With regards to noise; they're all really noisy. Think jet engine! Even the most ardent white noise fans will not be able to sleep through these!
Although a good price, I suspect most will need at least a 9000 or 12000 BTU unit.

Seal up windows, and this will use the cooled air in the room and exhaust it out the window
Gotta love this review...

Rubbish, pushed out more hot air from the rear vent than cold out of the front, the only option would be to use the useless vent hose which made it not portable any more

Don't you need to check it with f gas engineer?

Yes, generally an permanent a/c install needs to be “signed of” by F gas qualified engineer. There are some specific diy models that have special sealed interlocking connectors for the refrigerant pipes, these units apparently bypass the requirements for a F gas eng to sign of the install.

They can f off nanny state
Got a couple, other brands though. Very noisy but got used to it. Didn't make a huge different but nights were comfortable. As I switched to a larger room, had a proper split unit fitted with heating and cooling. Whisper quite now. The portables came with cut out foam for extractor flu and to seal window. Also needed regular water draining.
Living in London, buying one of these smaller air con units a few years ago was the best thing I ever did.
I'd avoid all portable units as most can't be regassed
Purchased a couple over the years never learned my lesson. When the units start failing to cool a few months after warranty expires. I then find out it's not possible to regas these cheaper units. The more expensive ones do have the ability to regas. So yes they're cheap but think of it spending your money on something that'll last a couple years
