Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Halpy6969 12/25/2021

Works well. Controls on top of unit are essy to use but touchy - brushing against them by accident changes settings. Rotating vent at top is nice but fragile. Good remote control...wish unit had wifi.

ihatehotweather 11/29/2021

I did comprehensive research before buying. This was the best deal for biggest BTU. It can cool my entire lofted home (1800 sq ft) with ceiling fans to help circulate air. It is fairly quiet and very good at cooling the space down. I like that it has a fan feature that oscillates up and down as an option and remote control. Portability makes a big difference too if we move to a different aspect of the house.

Beats California Heat!

Dom97 9/23/2021

I had a previous portable air conditioner from Black and Decker that just wasn't doing the job anymore. Despite being set to the coldest temperature the room never felt cool. Plus, I believe the self evaporative feature malfunctioned as it was always creating water. This is what eventually led us to replacing the Black and Decker machine with this GE one, and it was worth it! This machine keeps my whole room cool at all times and even has an effect on the temperature in the hallway outside my room. The fact that the air is released from the top of the machine and not just a vent in the front really allows for amazing air circulation. I don't really have a problem with how loud it is (I don't even think it's that loud) as I think it provides some nice white noise for when I sleep. However, to be honest, I think its unreasonable to expect a quiet portable air conditioner in the first place. Overall and amazing product that performs above expectation and looks exactly like the picture on the website!

A but on the louder side… bur it works great. I have a 650 aw ft apartment, 1 bed. Obviously it doesn't reach all the way around to the bedroom but it is toward one end of my apartment and the kitchen is toward the other end of that room and I feel it all the way to the kitchen.

ANiMoL 8/24/2021

We live in Phoenix, we use these to cool down our rooms in addition to our house air conditioner. This gets 4 stars because the hose does not attach to the window housing very well…be better to have a "lock in" system, rather than me having to screw and tape the thing.

Cools our 420 sq. foot room easily. Super easy to install with included window kit, SO much better than a window unit too!! It is a bit noisy, but being nice and cool is well worth it! Have had it about 4 months and it's been run almost 24/7, but we have never had to drain any water as it has self-evaporative technology.

Functions as advertised

SG11 8/12/2021

Easy to install, although the unit is heavy and took some effort to move up the stairs to the second floor bedroom. Cools the space for which it was purchased well. The only odd thing is that the main power light does not stay on during normal operation, after lighting briefly when the unit is initially turned on. If you can't use a window unit (in my case, I did not want to have to remove the screen on the second story window to accommodate a window AC), the portable AC is a good solution.

Adam02458 7/7/2021

I bought this unit to supplement my under powered central air on the third floor of my home. When it gets really hot outside, the undersized central air can't keep up. These have provided a useful supplement. A bit misleading during the installation process (the panels really only for three sizes, not a range), but I managed to modify them to work).
