    Comments about LG Portable Air Conditioner:

    The LG Portable AC is best suit for a an enclosed room which was my main reason for buying it. The bedroom would always get a little more humid and instead of cranking down the A?C for the whole house, I just use the LG at night to help me sleep. Its not too loud and fairly easy to clean and drain the water. The Window installation kit could be a bit more sturdy/stiffer plus some extra foam sealant would be a plus.
    This unit would also work well if you wanted to air condition your garage as long as you had a way to vent the exhaust hose. I plan on having a dryer vent port put in my garage so that I can hook the unit up in there to use while working on the cars in the summer

    LG LP POrtable Air Conditioner-Makes it COLD!

    Comments about LG Portable Air Conditioner:

    LIke this a lot for one room. It is fairly narrow, fairly quiet. The problem is getting it so the hose fits into the back and up to a window thats about 3 feet off the ground. The slider to put into the window is rather flimsy, so if you are handy, make one out of wood, and cut the opening for the hose. This is a power little machine. However if it's above 90 in the house, it's going to take a while to cool down the room. I think it puts out a lot of cool air ,but you do have to leave it on constantly on very warm 90 degree days. If you don't have central air, this will make at least one room bearable to be in. It also has just a fan setting, but i don't find this useful. IT's not much of a fan. But as a room air conditioner and being portable, it really can't be beat.

    UPDATE 7/21/11--- IT is now a year later, and am using this again.  While it hasn't been as hot this year, I notice that it is really cooling down the room quick.   I would highly recommend this air conditioner.  It is doing a great job in it's 2nd year.

    UPDATE 8/21/12- Still going strong! Would not have made it thru the summer without this! Powerful/durable machine.

    UPDATE 7/29/2013 - It's still working! Cools off the downstairs almost immediately. This is an open floor plan downstairs. Outside temps 100+ degrees.

    Took it upstairs, upstairs temp 80 degrees. This machine struggled by itself to cool it to 78 degrees...brought it down to 74 degrees after 4 hours. The room is 15 X 15. Put in a window AC for a room directly across, and turned on swamp cooler. This brought the temp down to 68 degrees within a few hours. This machine is now 4 years old, it works fine in 90 degree outside temps but with 100 degree weather it needs help in the upper rooms of the house. It is very heavy, and getting it upstairs was a real pain, if the stairs are carpeted you can slide it up on it's side fairly easily, but if stairs are hardwood, you are going to have to lift this thing...good luck.
