Geat product that fits my needs!
I was looking for a product that would meet my needs and I found it. I live in a condominium with only one wall unit that does not cool my whole space. I placed this product in my bedroom and it's working GREAT! It was so easy to set up and took no time at all. It has a variety of great feature options you can use with ease. I'm glad I chose the right product!

This product does the job required.
I bought the Soleus KY-80 to cool off a small enclosure that I built to house a noisy computer server that is located in a conference room at my work. The server is very noisy and puts out hot air, up to 130F, so the room would never get cool enough from the central air conditioner. The KY-80 fit my needs perfectly. My conference room is now quiet and my server is staying cool with the KY-80 which is critical to the operations at my company.

I use this unit in my baby's room which is a 10x10. I'm in Colorado so I don't have to drain the unit an sit cools the room down to the low 70's pretty quickly(1hr or so). Keeps my kids sleeping! It is quieter than the 14000 but unit I bought for my bedroom but that is to be expected with the lower but rating. I also like the window kit it came with, sits foush with the window and is easy to install. Would highly recommend for smaller rooms.

Many told me that portable air conditioners either do not work or are very inefficient. I was in a position where it was either a portable air conditioner or nothing. I did a thorough internet search and read hundreds of reviews including Consumer Reports. I purchased the Soleus KY 80 as the most highly rated at an affordable price. I recommend it with enthusiasm.

Small footprint perfect for small space
and selected the Soleous KY-80 8000 BTU for my 5' X 12' work/tool room because of it's smaller size. Ran the exhaust vent hose through an exterior wall and installed a 5" exhaust vent with screen at the outlet. Unit runs quite and cools down the room quickly on initial startups. Prompt shipping was appreciated because of 98 degree outside temperatures.

Love It Beyond Any Air-conditioner Thus Far!!!!!
Easy to install, effective, and simply an overall brilliant product. First of all, I have awkward, vertical windows; and was at first hesitant not knowing if the window installation would work. Obviously it did! Also, my windows are quite tall, so don't worry about what type of window you have. I have it in my bedroom and usually have it on the dehumidify setting, which takes moisture out of the air. This has helped me tremendously because I have asthma and am a very hot sleeper. My favorite part is to make it face me (since its portable and movable), use the REMOTE :) as needed to switch the settings from low, medium, high, if I may want it to be 65 degrees, or just leave it on auto. I no longer sleep uncomfortably and to me, this was priceless. When I'm not sleeping and its warm, it keeps my bedroom very cool and helps my overall apartment feel less humid. Bottom line -- You need this in your home as well! Good Luck...

I purchased this portable air conditioner for a football ticket booth. I easily completed the steps in the manual to assemble the air conditioner and exhaust hose. The Mobil Comfort is extremely easy to move around on the wheels and cooled the area sufficiently and effectively. I loved the remote control for extra convenience! I would recommend this product for anyone needing a portable air conditioner for a smaller area.

awesome little unit
Bought this for the bedroom but it seems to cool the whole back half of the house. We live in a drier climate (most of the time) and have only had to drain it twice in the month we've been using it. It's not real quiet but I find it to be good "white noise" at night. It's totally worth a little noise to be able to sleep on those nights when it just is too warm and humid to sleep with the windows open. This unit is small and fits into the room without looking like a refrigerator like the bigger units would. (I did find it amusing that the video never once shows the unit near a window or with the venting stuff hooked up.) Very happy with what we got for the very reasonable price we paid and the shipping was very fast!

Best portable air conditioner ever
I just bought this fantastic air conditioner. This unit was delivered to my home in 1 day...I was shocked and pleased with the fast delivery. Living in the desert, the temperature outside is quite hot. Having my bedroom on the 2nd floor I receive the brutal afternoon sun which makes my bedroom extremely hot and stuffy. I ran this product and it really, really cooled my bedroom off so that I was able to sleep comfortably. I found it to be quieter than the average window unit. Now I can truly say...bring on the heat, I'm ready.

I've now owned three portable AC's, this one was the easiest out of the box to assemble and does what it says it will do, it easily cools a small room. (10x10) I'm using it in Colorado so in high dry environments its perfect. Took maybe 10 minutes to drop the room temp 6 degrees. I'll happily buy another one if its keep performing well.

Since it is Nov. we just did a test and it seems to be just right for the small bedroom it's going to cool. I will know more when the summer of 2012 rolls around. Nice and small neat size.

This AC was easy to get set up. I had the vent installed and the unit up and running in five minutes. It does a super great job of cooling. Other reviews have said it's noisy, but it's far quieter than window ACs. I have it in my office off the back of my house and it doesn't bother me at all. It's slim and nice looking too. I only wish I would have bought it sooner!

I bought this unit to use in my office because it gets horribly stuffy in the summer. It works very well, and it's much more quiet than I expected. The only issue I have is that, although the unit itself doesn't take up much space, the exhaust tube connected to the window does kill a good few feet because it has to be as straight as possible.

I love this unit. I live in Houston where it's very hot and humid. Right out of the box, it was super easy to get up and running. It really does its job and makes the room cold. Sometimes too cold and have had to turn it down! The remote makes it nice and easy to control from across the room. Variable speeds really gives you great control. It doesn't take up much floor space at all, like some of the other units I looked at. It was one of the main reasons I bought this one. I wish I had bought it along time ago! Very happy with this purchase. Thank you!

This is the best air conditioner I've ever owned. I've had 3 different one ranging in price from $1,500 to $800. This one equals the $1,500 one. It truly doesn't know it's only 8,000 BTU's. Great style and dimensions. Two of my friends have already bought them. Performs like a much bigger one and out performs some of the more expensive ones.

We have put this unit to work during this humid summer weather. It nicely cools off the upstairs and makes it comfortable for sleeping. The only complaint I've had is the difficulty in getting the temperature display switched from Celsius to Fahrenheit. But that's something we can live with! The window vent needed for the unit should be detailed clearly for those ordering - we have some older windows upstairs and it could be difficult for some with similar types of windows to make it work.

After 6 months all seems good. I run it nightly and though it is as loud as a window unit, this is no problem for me because I want to be comfortable. It blows very cold air and seems to have been very well built. At 52 lbs. it is the lightest portable I have found. I would recommend it.

Water had it. The headache I was having of finding a way to find a path for the exhaust and to build some sort of device for my window, but the window kit was relieving and quick to install. One small negativity from the unit was missing an indication to how the temperature is in the room.

Unit works perfectly; cools my 225 sq ft sunroom very well (I made an interior window out of plexiglass so that I could use the unit with 6ft casement windows). Remote control is an excellent feature, along with automatic evaporation of collected water. Narrow width is also a good feature along with automatic setting which cycles from cool to dehumidify to fan depending on temperature.

When ordering this product price was definitely a huge factor. This product seemed to be of high quality at a reasonable price. After I ordered the product and checked back a couple days later I found that it was $40 cheaper if I were to order it that day. I sent an email to customer service and my money was refunded the next day. I was especially happy with the way customers are treated here at Air-n-Water. I will definitely be shopping here again.

A good AC, a difficult to cool space
in short - a well constructed unit, easy to set up, and it does what it's supposed to

Great Product, just a little noisy for office,but has its perks.
I love the product, use it in my 100 sq ft office at work. My ceilings are 12 ft high and it has no problem cooling. The only negaitve factor is the noise. Wish it was a little quieter, but the positive side to the noise is that I don't get distracted as easily.

Excellent unit for the space and the money!
I ordered this unit to cool my Massage Therapy room which is about 125 SF. It is not only easy to use but sufficiently quiet. My clients just comment that it is like "white noise" in the background. The shipping was cost effective and timely. I am very pleased with this product and recommend it often, when asked if I am satisfied with this purchase. Thanks air-n-water for helping me and my clients stay cool and comfortable.

Well functioning vented portable AC used in travel trailer
The unit worked effectively, especially since I did not have to get up at all during the night to empty water out of the reservoir. I'm confident this unit will work as a backup air conditioner at home if any of our units should suddenly fail. I was also pleased to have access to this instruction manual courtesy of Air and Water (it was key in purchase decison).

This product didn't work for me because of its size and the space I wanted to put it in. However, the return process was simple and efficient although, due to the well advertised stocking fee, expensive.

Not bad for an 8000 btu portable
First time I bought a portable a/c. The reviews are confusing online. I did not have a problem with the install. I am no handyman but it was easy to cut the plastic window strip with heavy duty scissors. I used some duct tape to make sure the vent hose (size of a dryer hose) stays put on both ends. Used an extension chord eventhough the book advises against - hey..what are you going to do. It took a bit but it cooled a small bedroom sufficiently. It was for elderly friends so I didn't want a unit in the window because sometimes they open the window instead. So it did the trick for the price.

Loud but good
It was smaller than I expected which was a huge plus. Cools really well, but would have liked for it to be less noisy and have more features. Automatic shut off and start would be nice once room gets to a certain temp. It does have an auto button, but this only increases temp by two degs. Installation was a bit labor intensive, but not too bad. Easy to drain and clean. Overall pretty good for the price. Biggest drawback is the noise, although it does cool a room sufficiently to turn it off in intervals. Best feature is its size-about half the size of a regular portable ac.

Worked in a tricky situation
I have a small, hot guest room with small, awning-type windows, so a regular window air conditioner was not an option. The only way to make the portable AC function was to have a custom "storm window" made with a hole cut the exact size of the oval outside vent piece. Then I swapped the screen with the new window, hooked it up and all was well. NOTE: have a bucket ready. If it's humid like it has been this summer in PA, you will definitely need an overflow container for all the water that accumulates.

This unit does exactly what is supposed to do and I have no complaints as of yet except that the unit's exhaust tube does not install as easy as I would like. Other than that I have no serious regrets with my purchase.

It has been working great. A better system for releasing the water from the back or better instructions on how to attach the black pipe in the back should be implemented. Sometimes it does not feel as cold as it should for the temperature reading, but overall it has been great!

A nice little unit that does what it is advertised to do. My only complaint would be that perhaps more window insulation should be included with the unit.

cool my bedroom. The unit works well in a 150 square foot room, but this is Maine! In a warmer area, it would be adequate for a smaller room. With the refrigerant compressor inside the room with this type of AC unit, it is rather noisey. We shut it off when going to bed. Well made and works well.

Great cooling machine. Easy setup but it only blows in one directions. Love the timer feature either to turn on or off which is great to make sure you don't wake up in a sweat. All around great for the money. Heavy thing so make sure you have two people to carry it.

Good product definitely keeps the room cold. I wish it oscillated or something. It's a bit bulky and does take up a window but I can't complain about it making the room cooler. A bit noisy too. The timer feature is awesome though.

Not sure about single hose units
A dual hose portable A/C has a second hose to pull in outside air and therefore keeps the outside air stream completely isolated from the inside air. Although I have not tried a dual hose unit, I wish I would have bought one instead.

Much noisier than I had hoped. Cannot conduct business while the machine is on i.e. talk on the phone or meet with anyone.

Just Not Big Enough
This unit was really not big enough fir even a very small room, so we had to return it. That involved additional shipping and restocking costs. We bought a smaller window unit and it works great. Beware the promises made regarding this unit.
2.0 Star Rating: OK
The unit is very limited in location options. The exhaust hose is too short and is not a standard size. (the support groups won't define it). I've needed one more foot of hose and can't find anyone that carries it. Now the "portable" unit sits on a chair in order to reach the window. How silly

Need advice? More information?

Answer:
On high fan the unit should put out about 52 degree air. If not the filters may be dirty.

Question:
My unit works, but no longer blows cool air. It stopped blowing cool air after the year warranty. No kinks in the hose, it's straight, and properly hooked to my window to vent the hot air; the filters have been cleaned & it still will not cool. Only blows like on "fan mode" and that's not cool enough living on the 2nd floor in 100 degree weather. Is there a way to fix this? I can't afford a new one.
