Happy with Purchase

Date:July 23, 2015
" Bought this unit as Canadian Tire was the only company I found with an in-stock unit the size I needed that hot day. The unit was easy to install and it has been working perfectly. I'm very satisfied with its operation, and pleased how quiet it is for sleeping.
Note: Found two creepy crawly bugs which escaped from the box when unpacking unit!! "

Contractor Review

Date:July 21, 2015
" I have installed 3 of these now. They seem to do the job although these units have one extreme flaw!!! There is NO WHERE FOR THE WATER TO DRAIN from the pan. This is a frequent complaint to garrison regarding these units. The noise a lot of you are hearing is the fan blade running through the pool of water in the bottom of the unit. To solve this follow these instructions carefully!
On the underside of the unit the pan needs to have a drain hole (or two) created. You MUST be very CAREFUL to not drill into the compressor or coils, pick your spot on the front bottom of the pan at the lowest point and as far away from the coils as possible. Drill in a hole the width of a pencil or slightly bigger is all that is necessary, I did two every time as a precaution in case one gets plugged. Make sure the unit when installed is on a slight slope to allow the water to drain to these holes without pooling and problem solved! Again do not put your drill in carelessly because after going through the pan you will hit the pressurized unit and possibly cause bodily harm. "

Great Product

Date:July 25, 2013
" I purchased this product due to a humid heat streak we were having. We were sweating in our house just sitting there. Our home is 989 sq ft. This A/C unit keeps the whole house at a steady set temperature. I didn't expect it to work that well. I give quality a 3 because when I received it the right side was squat where the rails go. There is not enough protection in the box for this unit. Would have brought it back but it was the only AC unit under $350 in three stores/communities within a reasonable drive. There is a little rattle in it, water flicking against the styrofoam insulator and sound like dirt flicking around. There is another rattle from the filter in the front of unit as well. Besides those few issues I feel it is a fantastic unit. I have only been using it for a couple of days so I can't comment on the longevity of it. "

Works Great

Date:July 23, 2012
" I have this is my apartment living room window and it keeps my living room, dining room & kitchen quite cool. It is fairly quiet and I like having the fan only option. Very satisfied with this purchase.
The only problem is that my window gap was on top because my windows open side to side and the accordion side panels it comes with are only for side to side gaps.
