We have been threatening for years to purchase a portable a/c and this year we finally did it. OMG, should have done it years ago. But in waiting we found this company and are so pleased we did. Haven't gotten the first bill yet but I am hoping it is as enery efficient as they say. Still, it really helps with this heat wave and will help in the winter with the heater. So happy!

This A/C-Heater performs both functions well.
When I received the heater/ac, the temperature was unseasonly cool and I used the "heater" setting to take the chill off the first 2 evenings. It performed well and took the chill off. Within a few days, it became hot and I used the A/C "cool" setting and it cooled my area well. Today the heat is near record temperature, and the A/C is keeping my area cool. The unit is performing sufficiently and doing the jobs that I purchased it to do.

Great Cooling Alternative!
I was a little skeptical of a portable air conditioner but am happy to report I had nothing to fear. This product was easy to install (I did it myself and I'm a 57 year old mechanically challenged woman). I live in southern Arizona where the monsoon months are too humid for swamp coolers and this air conditioner cools wonderfully during this time.

DELIVERED within the same week (thank you). We unboxed the units and sent the Comfort advisor to the clients homes. The comfort advisor was able to setup and show the clients how to use the units in a matter of minutes with no practice. We cant wait to have the same problem in the Heating season as these are also heat pumps.

I didn't really think such a small unit could produce enough cool air to justify the price, but I was pleasantly surprised. I had 5 diffrent AC people come to my house to work on my home unit, and every single one mentioned how they were surprised at out well the little portable kept my living room so comfortable. I did hang a blanket to block off the connecting hallway. That helped keep the living room at a comfortable 78.

Great portable a/c
I bought this a/c to cool my back patio for my cats. It's kinda like trying to cool the outside but on days when it is 104 outside, my patio is 78-80 degrees. Hopefully it will perform as well in the winter months. I did not notice a difference in my utility bill. Because I did not have any windows on my patio, I had to hire a carpenter to install but it looks great.

Recently purchased this product for the upcoming hurricane season. This recommendation is based on the initial testing to ensure the unit worked as it was designed to do and found it met expectations so far. Hopefully, we will not have a bad season but anticipate it will function as promised. Only drawback we found was no warranty info so we could register the unit nor a packing list included with the unit, just the shipping label outside of the box. We had to call the company to find out this information (other than what was posted on the website) but not a papertrail of registering the unit or warranty info in writing..

Performs as expected
Water sales department is knowledgeable and helpful. I researched the AC12000H extensively and they confirmed what I had learned. The blower is very powerful and has important features without the extra bells and whistles you won't ever use. The unit is noisier than I would prefer but I didn't see any other portable heat pumps with a lower decibel rating. Perhaps offering one more lower blower level would be helpful. I did have a problem with my remote operating correctly but the online RMA form was easy to complete and their phone service was equally accomodating.

Works very well
I have used this unit since August 2011 and so far it has performed very well. How well it performs depends on the size of the room you put it in and how well the room is insulated. The bigger the room, the longer it takes to cool it. As far as the heating of the unit, I just started using it and it seems to perform just as well as the A/C on the unit. All though the plastic housing could be a little better quality with deeper handles. I give it two thumbs up for performance. I could not accurately rate the energy efficiency as I have no way to monitor or calculate it. I have seen a few complaints about the exhaust pipe emitting heat back into the room when using the A/C which does sort of defeat the purpose a little. This is due to the thin construction of the exhaust pipe which could also be better as it is easy to split. To solve the heat emitting from the exhaust pipe, take some six inch silver round air duct insulation and slip it over the exhaust pipe before you install it in the window. Problem solved. This works very well.

I bought the unit for my garage I like to work in my garage but the heat with humidity is excessive. The one time I have used it gave me a temperature drop from 89 degrees to 81 degrees in a short while. Not bad at all for a garage area.

I'm very happy with the Newair.....Since I live in Boston I'm using the unit primarily for Heating. I have eliminated 2 elect heaters. I now use a max of 1100watts instead of 3000 watts. Saving me a lot of money. I dump the cold air into the basement. In the summer I will dump the heated air into the basement to keep the efficiency high. I don't use the window attachment because I don't want to send conditioned air out of my house.

This is my second purchase of a portable air conditioner w/heat pump. I loved my first one and decided to purchase another for my basement. I am so pleased with them. I can't believe how quick they cool off my space and now that the cooler weather has set in the heater is doing great. Thank you for allowing me to purchase such a wonderful machine(s).
5.0 Star Rating: Outstanding
I received the package within a week of ordering it online and it was packed very well. It was very simple to install (no tools needed). I placed it in a bedroom located in the finished attic of my home (no ductwork or vents) where it gets very hot in the summer. This unit cools it down pretty quickly and it is relatively quiet. In order to test the unit, I ran it continuously for 2 months straight with no problems whatsoever and haven't had to empty the tank once the entire summer! We've had some cool nights recently and I had a chance to test the heating function. It works fine at temperatures above 45 degrees F due to it being a heat pump but, is not effective at lower temps. I found a small space heater to be quieter and more efficient for heating. I am very satisfied with my purchase and would definitely recommend this unit to anyone without the heating function though.

Looking for a a/c unit to cool off upstairs master bedroom cause it's been getting very hot recently so we bought this NewAir 12000H unit. Its been a great buy the room is bout 250ft with valted ceilings, it takes the unit bout 20-30 min too cool the room down to 76degresee. the only problem so far is its a little loud but we have overcome that in exchange for a cool room. So as for this unit its been great so far we'll see how it works for the winter.

5.0 Star Rating: Outstanding
The unit works as advertised, puts out real cold air. It arrived in very good condition. I think the double hose design is a better option because it does not rely on interior air to blow out the exhaust. The double hose design brings in air for the compressor and exhausts it, not pulling air out of the house.
5.0 Star Rating: Outstanding
This portable AC works great. Even during the hottest days, cools a large bedroom to 73 in 10-20 minutes. You can set a temp and the air conditioner maintains it. I agree with some of the other reviewers. This is a very loud unit because it has more than 10,000 BTU's. This AC does have a sleep setting that I am not familiar with yet. I haven't had any problems with water from condensation, but my area is not very humid. I haven't needed to try the heater on the unit yet. All in all, this AC works perfect for me because my apartment doesn't have central air.

I purchased the NewAir AC-12000H for use in my home office. I am very pleased with way it cools on low my 250 sq ft area.

The installation was extremely simple, and from what I can tell, it will be very easy to move the unit to another part of the house.

The unit works amazingly well! I have it on the main level of my ranch style home and cools the open area of living room, kitchen, and dining room (1200 sp ft) very well. We are very happy with it and look forward to trying the heat setting this winter in our finished basement. The 4 settings are fantastic between fan, cool, heat and hi or low as well as the ionizer keeping the allergens down in the house. Would highly recommend to anyone. (Noise is a non-issue as all machines like this are noisy and just turn up the TV volume and you don't even notice it).

Bought this to cool off the garage in the summer. It works awesome! Doesn't take very long and it cools it down to a comfortable temp. Makes being in the garage a lot more bearable. Better than a swamp cooler because you don't have to hook up water and will still cool when it gets humid. Will have to wait until winter to try out the heat pump. Little too warm right now!

We purchased this item in the hottest days of summer. It cooled pretty well considering the size of the space. We're waiting for winter to test how well it heats.
4.0 Star Rating: Good
Bottom line: this unit cools to 77 degrees what would otherwise be an unbearably hot room. It really cranks out the cold air! However, the design of this genre of air conditioner is inherently inefficient since 1)the exhaust air must be drawn from outside into the room you are cooling 2) the very hot air exhaust pipe radiates heat back into the room. These units fill just adequately the niche made when window units and central air conditioning are not possible. In light of its limitations, I am happy with the purchase.
4.0 Star Rating: Good
For inside the house, I recommend this unit...blows cold, comes with a remote and has great features. If you're going to do a workshop or garage, get a window unit or something twice this size in a portable.

Cooling Falls short
Bought this unit in hopes that it would cool my enclosed 10' x 20' patio. I installed the exhaust through my bottom wall as my windows are 84" and slid right to left. The window kit was useless in my case. My french doors that open to the patio help cool the area on the days i am home. The problem comes when i have to shut the french doors and have the portable ac unit cool the patio. It never did cool it below 80 degrees. And actually as the summer heat got hotter around 2-3pm the room kept getting hotter. At one point the room was 87 degrees. The ac unit was blowing cold air but just couldn't cool the room on it's own. I returned the unit and ordered a 13,000 btu dual hose unit. I am hoping by adding the dual hose that the room will be easier to cool. Btw, i did experience a negative pressure in the room that made me uncomfortable. My dogs will be staying in this room while i go to work and the negative pressure kind of scared me. I believe this unit states it will cool up to 350-400sq feet. I only have 200sq feet and it did not adequately cool the room. Maybe that hot Florida sun is just too much for these portable ac units.

Yes it does. But the vent hose provided can be placed in a window, which makes it convenient to use in living rooms and bedrooms.

Answer:
Yes. This unit needs to vent outside and have a drainage tube also. Carol

Only if using the A/C mode.

Answer:
Yes it does need to vent outside. It has two pieces of flexible tubing. one to draw air in and the other to exhaust in order to let the system release heat in the summer or absorb heat in the winter. It comes with a plate that can be adapted to a window to attach the tubing to or you can make permanent penetration through the wall. I have installed both ways with great success. Customers have been very happy with this portable device. Especially where ductwork from main system is not available. Be happy to answer any more questions.

Answer:
Yes. As with any air conditioner, these portables have to be vented outside, if they are in air cooling mode. If not vented, you would just be blowing the hot exhaust air back into the room, and cancel out the cooling effect. Even vented, the exhaust hose itself can get very hot. As with many other portable owners, I have found that wrapping the hose helps a lot. I've read of solutions using various insulating items from the hardware store. But I prefer using an old blanket or comforter that coordinates with the decor of the room. You can wrap it around the hose, or just arrange it to cover at least the top of the hose (if you need to move it frequently). If you don't have and old one available, you can find them cheap at any 2nd hand store - or look for something in a clearance sale. This is not only a less expensive solution, but also more attractive for a home setting. Till then, any old towel, or bathroom rug will serve the purpose till you find something better.

Answer:
I think for the air conditioner part to work it has to vent outside. An air conditioner is actually just a big dehumidifier and the water has to go somewhere. I haven't used the heater part yet but the air conditioner works well. It is big but works well with a standard window.
