I hope the people who purchase this see how much this sucker weighs (88 lbs). If you're moving this I hope you don't need to drag it up a few sets of stairs.

It is a nice unit though and not having to dump a tray of water every so often is a nice bonus.

Not practicle, think more in terms of how your clothes dryer vents to the outside. That is how these things work.

Is there any way to tell from the stats on this how big an area it can cool?

"Bucketless Design - No water tank to empty. The built-in condensate disposal system sends the water out of the exhaust hose"

I got excited when I read this feature, however, from the reviews on Amazon and inside the manual itself, this feature does not seem to be there. Anyone have any insight?

this AC unit needs an exhaust to outside. Seeing that this "portable" unit is more or less tethered to a window, why not just install a window unit instead? Window AC is far more efficient than a "portable" unit.

I have owned one of these for about a year. Or at least a Sharp that looks exactly the same. I have found that up in my L shaped living room it really cools the couch I tend to nap on and keep it cool.Mine is also a Whisper model, so I have found it is 2/3 less nosy than my older model.

Would have to move without it. I paid $398 at Costco. But Sharp has proven to be a great brand!

I have an identical unit in my bedroom right now....I purchased it at a home improvement store last year (for about $120 more).

I live in Northern California, and it was 102-107 every day this week.

This unit is an absolute life saver for me and my wife. Our house does not have air conditioning (just a swamp cooler). Sleeping in the bedroom was horrible. This portable AC is amazing...turn it on, and within 10 minutes, the temp in the room drops from the 90's to the mid 60's (on max cool).

Does these 1 hose unit work? All I can see is that it sucks the cooled air from the room and dump it outside the window.

Bought one of these a few years ago for nearly twice the price b/c our home office was just not cooling between the desktops and other devices my spouse and I have in it. Because the office was facing a street, we did not want a window unit. It was a life saver. We were able to keep the screen on the window, so it was hardly noticeable. On a side note, it is also is compatible with harmony remotes.

That's where "portable" comes in. Moving a window unit is not fun. They're usually heavy units and you're trying not to drop it out the window while taking it out or putting it in. Basically, once you've put it in the window, it's there for the summer. With a portable unit, you can roll it around to whatever room you temporarily need cooling in and easily run the hose to any available window.

these are awesome for camping, if your campground has electrical hookups. A similar unit was very much appreciated when I was camping in central Ohio july 3-8....

I'll second this. I have the sharp 10k btu unit and love it. Works great and cold my 12x12 office or 15x18 bedroom. rolls easy, even on carpet. Window vent is cake to install, and switches easily between windows of the same height or width.

I recommend sharp ac units with no hesitation.

There are some types of windows that will not accommodate a window AC unit -- for example, casement windows that open with a crank.

Also, there are some apartment and condominium complexes that do not allow window units. I happen to live in one.

Arg, I'm in Az and my central a/c just went out. Wish I could afford this.

It should cool up to about 500 square feet.

I had a portable air conditioner for my room. My energy Bill went up 80 dollars a month and I was running it ~4-5 hours a day.

How much do you think this will cost to run a month? let's go for 5 hours a day 7 days a week.

Only one hose is needed as the heat is piped out of the room. All air conditioners work on the same principal. The gas expands into the cooling side and a fan blows room air over the cooling coils. The gas picks up the heat and is discharged in this case out the window as the fan blows over the heat side coils. The compressor sends it back to the cooling side to start all over again.

This only has one exhaust hose, which I've read makes for a less efficient unit when I last purchased a portable AC. A quick web search claims that:
"The mere existence of the second hose makes a dual exhaust unit cool a room quickly, almost three times faster. These are generally a better buy than single exhaust units, and you can expect to pay more for a better performance."

We have a similar version from Costco. We are on our 3rd one. The first had an AWFUL vibration from the compressor. You could hear it throughout the entire house. Returned.

The second one had this buzzing sound every 5 seconds or so. Sharp said it was the ion plasmacluster thingy doing it's job. Kept us up all night. Returned.

The third is quiet, but doesn't seem to cool that well. Still have it, but thinking about returning (thank god for Costco).

So, buyer beware with these units. If you get one that's perfect, buy a lottery ticket cause you're lucky!

Good price though. We paid $389 + tax. Ouch. Tempted to buy this and return the Costco one...

But the manual clearly talks about how to drain it when it gets full. See page EN-26 of the PDF manual. Drain out water within the unit in the following cases.
• When the unit stops operating and the TIMER, AIR CON and MAXIMUM lamps are
blinking, the water tank is full and need to be drained.
• When the unit is not used for a long time


If I put this in the bedroom upstairs, draining it will be very difficult for me.

This is the only thing that concerns me and is stopping me from purchasing it.

Given what a pain the single hose is to handle, I can't imagine trying to route two hoses. Also, I almost never see the dual-hose ones offered - in fact, I don't think I've ever seen a dual hose unit in person at the few big-box stores I've looked in when shopping for an air conditioner.

Still if the hoses were easy enough to handle I'd be game to try...
