Too loud to use while sleeping. Too heavy to move up and down stairs. They are useful to cool down a room before you go to bed when its unbearably hot though.

At our old house for the casement window I used plexiglass (or you could use thin MDF) and cut a hole in it and placed it where the screen would go.

I bought this a few weeks ago when first released. Any idea if Costco will do a price adjustment for me.

Also this unit has worked well. I like that they greatly improved the hose to window encasement connection.

Got this last year and it has been pretty good for my ~800 sq. ft. apartment. Just pair it with a smart plug (I have the tp link hs105) and start it a half hour before you get home. The only downside I would say is that it is louder than the 45 to 50 dB that danby claims.
I have the white unit and it requires me to press "ON" after plugging it in.

I picked up the white 12k BTU unit early May and it has WIFI connection with App support. I might return mine and get this unit since they're same price but the one on sale is 14k BTU.

do any of you with portable A/C's have a casement type window and if so, how did you deal with the installation of the A/C on a casement window?
I just put the hose out of the window, and it works fine.

I know some people who have made their own housing (out of cardboard with a hole in the middle for the hose), and others who have got it professionally done (plexiglass).

Generally, if it has been within a month they usually do it (on some occasions I have done price adjustments on purchases more than two months ago but YMMV).

Is it safe to use it with a smart plug? Doesn’t need to press ON?
Available in store?
Lurking on RFD for years. Finally decided to make an account...😂

Get a plexiglass cover made with cutout for hose.

It's WiFi connected already.

In real world testing, dual hose benefits in efficiency are overstated vs on paper; from consumersearch:
But things are not quite so cut and dried. In our own research, we found that among users, single-hose models often rate as well or better than many dual-hose portable air conditioners. Your Best Digs chimes in to say that "Ultimately, dual hose units are better than single hose units in terms of pure cooling power on the hottest days," but also adds that in their test set up, "it wasn't such a significant difference that we could ignore the strengths of smaller, cheaper, and better-looking models that still have solid cooling capacity."

The link doesn't work anymore. I bought this last week on costco.ca, looking to get a price adjustment of some sort.

It's back now at $519.. maybe they put the sale price up early in error.

Thanks. I just picked one up. Gonna year it out for a month. Hoping Danny goes on sale inside Costco store. I rather buy at Costco than Best Buy.

Are those “warranty” worth it that beat buy sell for air conditioner. Says $90 for 4 year coverage. But has anyone actually used it successfully to get unit fixed or replaced?

I haven't tried using it yet, but I bought this which is supposed to let portable A/C's work with those types of windows: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07C986TBQ/

The exhaust hose might be too short though, so you might have to buy another one online and tape them together to extend it.
OMG, thank you so much! I didn't know this exists! I have casement windows and I have never seen such thing before at Rona or Home Depot or Lowes!!
All I had was a DIY with card board and a fly mesh...
