This air conditioner is a great value
The NewAir AC-10100E 10,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner is a great value for its features. The portable air conditioner is a breeze to install, has great features, cools well, and is extremely easy to move around from room to room. The window installation kit comes with an extra long hose and an easy to install window kit. All in all, this makes for a very portable air conditioner. It certainly is a great value for the price.

Cheaper than the big box stores.
I purchased this portable air conditioner due to my home has radiant hot water heat. I wasn't quite sure what to purchase, since i didn't want to mount it through the wall and have a draft in winter. So I started looking at Home Depot. Then i looked up reviews. This model does very well for a C note cheaper than Home Depot. So far very happy with my purchase, but we will see about the energy effecincy. Anyway, don't worry that it dosen't work well because i work overnights, and needed something to cool my bedroom as i slept. So Far YIPPIE!!!! It works very well.

The unit is working great. It is cooling a much bigger area than expected. An added bonus is that it also is a heater. I didn't realize that. That will be appreciated in few months. It arrived in just a few days, so it was shipped immediately. Thumbs up to everything.

It's 93 outside and 68 inside!
This is perfect. The weight was okay for me to carry it up to my loft where it is placed. My home is small but with some elevated ceilings and some lower. I have 2 small window air conditioners on the first floor, but needed something upstairs. This was easy to install, and it came at the perfect time. We have had a much warmer than normal summer with several high 80's and low 90's days. I turn the 3 air conditioners on around noon, and I'm comfortable all day. This is perfect. The weight is fair for a portable a/c; I'm a 56 y/o female with some health issues and a horrid back, but I was able to make it to the loft w/ some prayers.... You won't regret this purchase.

Our NewAir portable air conditioner is great. Our service through Air & Water was superb.
Everything about this purchase was positive. We received fast and free shipping. The product was double-boxed and arrived in perfect condition. We were able to unpack it and plug it in almost immediately. It works great; cools the living room easily and is quiet on the lower fan speed. It was exactly as advertised . We are very pleased with all aspects of this purchase and have absolutely no regrets for making the purchase.

Does what we wanted it to...
Seems very well built -- light enough to move easily. Came in two days which was amazing. Definitely cools the room somewhat - but cools area in immediate vincinity very well. Would probably have gone with a window unit if my daughter didn't need to use it in both her living room and bedroom. Haven't got the energy bill yet so not sure about energy efficiency -- but I would most definitely recommend Air & Water for anyone looking for a unit. They were incredible.!!!!!

Keeping your Cool
What stood out most about this model from it's competitors was the 11+ EER, one of the best ratings out there. Being it that most 8-12K BTU units, priced in around $400, You can at least feel safe that you will make your money back in your electric bills. The model definitely kept my tiny room cold on most days, but Even having more BTU than I needed, it was mediocre when the 90 degree weather came out. I think that's just the nature of any portable AC, so I still give bonus points to it's cold factor. Now, installation, compactness, portability, remote control were awesome features, but my cons on the unit are the noise and LED lights. It makes about the same noise level as your average window unit, but I think this is a trade secret with portable units that they never really get 'quiet' if your a light sleeper. However, after a while, the rhythm like any AC becomes white noise. So, the only real con of this unit were those bright LED options. You can easily place a color sheet of paper over it to cover, but a 'dim' setting would have been ideal if your using for a bedroom. Overall, great purchase. Pros way out weigh the cons. Well worth my $400.

SO FAR.. SO GREAT IN SOMETIME HOT MAINE !!
THIS PRODUCT HAS MET AND EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS . SIMPLE TO INSTALL AND OPERATE. WE HAVE ANDERSEN CASEMENT WINDOWS SO WE HAD TO HAVE A POLYCARBONATE "WINDOW "FABRICATED FOR THE VENT TO THE OUTDOORS. AT FIRST I WAS GOING TO INSTALL A DRYER VENT IN OUR BEDROOM WALL BUT DECEIDED TO HAVE A POLY WINDOW FABRICATED TO THE SAME SIZE AS THE EXISTING SCREEN IT WOULD REPLACE ON HOT DAYS. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND USING 1/8" POLY AND GETTING IT FRAMED WITH THE MATCHING MATERIAL THAT YOUR SCREEN IS FRAMED IN. GLASS PEOPLE CUT THE EXACT SIZE HOLE IN THE POLY TO ACCEPT THE OVAL SHAPED VENT. WE DIDNT EVEN NEED TO USE THE REMAINING WINDOW FITTINGS THAT ACCOMPANIED THE AIR CONDITIONER. TOTAL COST $60 AT OUR LOCAL GLASS SUPPLIER . AIR CONDITIONER ARRIVED IN LESS THAN A WEEK, PACKED SAFELY ,IN PERFECT SHAPE AND IS EXCELLENT!! AIR AND WATER PEOPLE WERE TOTALLY HELPFUL AND GREAT. GLAD I FOUND THEM ON LINE!!

So far so good
It isn't hot enough to know if this unit cools efficiently. So far, though, I like it a lot. Well packed, came fast and easy to install I thought. It sits there purring rather unintrusively in my small apartment. I THINK one of the functions is to bring in outside air in the ventilation mode...so I like that...if indeed that is happening....the manual isn't very clear on the issue.

Thank you for your NewAir AC-10100E review! We're so happy to hear that you are satisfied with your purchase. In your review you mentioned some confusion about the ventilation mode and where the air is pulling from and I wanted to take a moment to answer your question. The NewAir portable air conditioners actually recirculate the air in whatever space they are in, no matter which mode they are in. The hose on the back of the unit is only for venting the air conditioner. Since you said there was some confusion about this in the manual, I've passed your review along to the manufacturer in hopes of getting it cleared up. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at 1-800-734-0405. Thank you again for your review!

5-star spot cooler, 3-star room cooler
(1) Air & Water's double packaging was excellent - reached me in perfect condition. (2) carbon/charcoal filter looks like a joke - I doubt whether it does anything. (3) weight is light compared to most portable air-conditioners and with wheels, and just right for me (I have back-problem) (4) No problem with fitting exhaust hose, good construction (I have casement windows, so had to use Pactiv foam sheets from Lowe's. cut to the size of the netting replacing it, and using double-sided duct tape). You have to wrap a soft foamy insulation on the exhaust pipe to increase efficiency. (5) cooling is excellent, but as a spot cooler, As a room cooler, it is not as efficient as a windows unit - I stayed within recommended room size, still lowered only a 2-3 degrees below outside. However, if you let it run 24 hours without cutout, that makes quite a difference. (6) water accumulation has not bothered me yet (if I have to do it I shall have to use low pans, which is problematic). On the whole, I am OK/satisfied with it.

I would recommend this A/C
I don't have windows that fit normal A/C units so I had to find a portable one if I was to get any sleep. It cools my bedroom off very well. I bit noisy at times when it is regulating the temperature but it's better than feeling uncomfortable. I had to rig something up to vent the exhaust out the sliding door - but it works

Just the Ticket
We have a loft room in our home that is located above our garage. The heat from the garage rises and makes the room hot. This AC unit quickly cooled the space without installing a window air conditioner. It is larger than I anticipated, a little noisy, and the hose attached to the window panel is not pretty, but it is WELL worth the negatives.

Don't be fooled by the dimensions.
I wish I had realized I could have accessed the manual before I purchased. The compact size was a major selling point for me as I didnot have much space to work with. I was totally taken aback upon reading the manual in preperation of setting it up. The exhauset air outlet is only 12 inches from the floor and the exhaust tube CANNOT be bent to fit into the window. To accommodate that, I would have had to put it on a table 24 inches tall. Other portable a/c's that I saw in stores, while wider, all had tubes shown being bent to be vented out the window. Next came the realization that the closest I can get the unit next to the wall is 24 inches because the exhaust hose cannot be cut shorter.. Because that would cut off access to the other side of the room, I could not use it as intended. So it's now on a milk crate in a window not intended, in a larger room. After installing, we had three 90 degree+ days where it took the edge off the heat, but that was all. A fan at the other end of the room helped. Another issue was the extendable window kit. Because of shutters on the window, I could not use the kit to center the exhause hose to the middle of the window, and I had to adapt the kit. Think twice before ordering. How many windows are 12 inches off the floor? The good news is that the web site was easy to navigate and to place an order, and delivery was fast and on time. I know I have the option to return the product, but I feel it will be a nightmare to repack. It's now too difficult for me to install my window units, so maybe I'll have to hire someone to do it for me, and maybe sell this portable unit in the future. After our recent heat wave, all the other portable units have been sold out. I would order from this company again, but I surely will be looking at the product manual first.

While the manual states that the hose should not be bent more than a few degrees this is simply for optimal performance. We suggest installing any portable air conditioner by extending the vent hose to the window, even if the rise is more than the 14" mentioned in the product manual. We have an instructional installation video that may be helpful as a guide. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6ZZjYkNE1I&feature=g-upl

Cool as a Cucumber
"Disappointd" below should slightly screw the grooves on the exhaust portion into the unit. Nothing comes apart when that's done. As for me, I have no complaints and love my cool bedroom. First bought the unit because I needed a new HVAC and was pretty sure my homeowners association would fire a letter off to me if I installed a window unit temporarily. After this experience, I'm thinking of using more than one unit in my next house and skipping the whole house air conditioning with its shutes and leaks altogether. So glad a friend recommended this and I found Air and Water on my own.

Disappointed
The air conditioner cools the room adequately. The customer service from this vendor is very good. The quality of the unit overall is poor. The vent hose will not stay connected either to the machine or the window vent outlet. Any little vibration or nudge and it falls apart. You can reattach it but the fit is such that it takes 2 people to put it together to keep the other end from coming disengaged. The details/overview were t clear in that the vent hose needs to be at the same height/level as the window you are venting it from. Our particular window is about 3.5-4 ft off the floor. Therefore we scrambled to find something to sit the unit on. We had nothing that size or height to support or sit the air conditioner on. I bought this portable unit based on what I thought was a much higher rating than it deserves. Yes, it cools, and it does an adequate job of cooling a 12x12 bedroom. I chose a portable unit to cool a front bedroom; I didn't want a window air conditioner sticking out of the window and resting on my window box. In hindsight I should have just purchased a compact window unit and saved a lot of money and the frustration of keeping this unit together.

It seems you are having a bit of trouble in setting up your AC-10100E. We hate to see customers confused and frustrated with their purchase. We'd love for you to give us a call at 1-800-734-0405 so we can assist you with setup. From reading your review it seems that your having difficulty with the expandable exhaust hose. Portable air conditioners are meant to be set on the floor and the hose typically can be extended upward without needing to bring the unit to window level. Again we look forward to helping you to the best of our ability, please do not hesitate to give us a call.

My husband and I are so pleased with the unit. We live in the San Joaquin Valley in California where temperatures are usually 100+ in the summer. We bought this unit so that we can sleep comfortably in our room without running the entire house air conditioner all night. So far, it works great and we love it.

Need advice? More information?

Question:
Why did you buy this item?
Answer:
My husband enjoys working in his new workshop, and needs a cooling system for the hot summer days.

Answer:
This past year I bought 3 Alen air filter units. Because the filter systems really helped me get thru a tough grass allergy season I decided to trust Alen Corp again by purchasing one of their a/c units.

Question:
Do you have to put in window or can you just plug in?
- Anonymous on 2014-06-10
Answer:
Just put it in any room you want, plug it in and let the cold air flow. I use it in my garage when working on my hot rods. It keeps the garage cool enough even with the double door partly open. Hope this helps.

Answer:
A window would be ideal but I have put it out the door or under the door if there is enough of a gap under the door.

It has a vent tube which puts out extremely hot air. It must be vented out.

Question:
Must this unit be vented to the outside?
- Lewis S. on 2014-07-10
Answer:
Yes, it is made to be vented out a window.
- Anna K. on 2014-07-10
Answer:
Yes through a window and all vent parts are included with unit.
- Kathleen H. on 2014-07-10
Answer:
Yes, you must vent the unit outside. If you do not, the unit will not cool the room (and, in fact, would add heat to the room). The unit comes with a ventilation kit that is easy to install. I would recommend that you purchase some duct insulation to enclose the ventilation duct to improve the efficiency of the unit as the duct gets very hot during operation and radiates this heat back into the room before being exhausted.

Question:
What is the length of the piece that fits in the window? My window is 26.5 ins. wide. Will I be able to cut some off if it's too long?

It's an adjustable length. It will almost certainly fit.
