The air conditioner is bulky and does a lot of work, it cools down the entire house and the electronic controls makes it very easy to operate, that is a real plus. It has sleep setting and a timer, they really go a long way in conserving energy. The air coming out of the unit is freezing cold and can be felt everywhere in the house, especially if you stay near it. A lady once said she had air conditioner installed in her 15 000 square-feet office and it worked superbly. Like I said the unit is bulky, and fixing it will require a considerable amount of effort for someone who likes to do things himself, a professional might not mind though. It does not have and ion air cleaner, which is a bit of a minus, but if you are living out in the country this will not be a problem; you breath in mostly clean air anyway. The noise level is low but after using it for some years it starts to make some low noises, also you need to attach a hose that leads to a drain to remove the drops of water coming from it, after it is mounted. If you do not mind the size and you need something that will get the job done, then give it a try.
