finding this air con pretty good for a portable. only problem I've really had is trying to find extra parts so I can use it in the bedroom, what's the good of having a portable air con you can't move to use in another room? what if we need spare parts????
Works very well
I've had this unit for almost two years now and it is still running great. Guests I have had over have commented that it works better than their wall-mounted ac. Definitely powerful, it cools a combined lounge/dining room with no trouble. It is noisy, but considering that it can be 35 outside and only 20 inside, I'm not complaining! I had a wall mounted ac at my previous house and found that my electricity bills were much higher than the ones I have now. I don't know if this can be solely due to the portable ac, but regardless, I haven't had any 'shock' electricity bills since owning this. My children did snap the window bracket in half, but I had that replaced at Harvey Norman.
Compresser keeps turning on and off?
Can anyone tell me if their Polocools compresser continues to turn on and off when in use? This is only the second time Ive had it on and it didn't do it the first time. Is it faulty or is there something I can do?
Most stupidest thing I have bought
I have not even had this for a year yet and doesn't even cool down any part / bedroom in my house what a waste of $1000 could of gottensomething way better then this garbage.
Not easy are salesperson said to install & run.
1. Door extension not sealing even with 2 rolls of foam around door. (Ordered a made-to-measure perspec panel & taped it in.
2.Hose keeps falling out - Duct taped it in.
3. Noise level - can't hear tv - bought Wifi Headphones
4. Cost to run - Extra $100 per quarter Sept-Dec (but haven't got thru summer yet!)
so $1000+ later I have a portable Air Con. That does cool even with GC humidity
Useless after the first season.
I've had two Polocool units now.
The first worked well for the first summer I had it - come the next year, it would only blow hot air. It was a few months out of warranty, and fixing it would have cost as much as replacing it, so I bit the bullet and went back to Harvey Norman. They recommended the newer, more powerful model, and again, I was happy for that first Summer.
This year, I ran it on and off for a week, before the "Mist Motor" broke, and the water tank began to fill up after an hour of operation, which causes the unit to autom...atically shut off, until you drain it. Leaving the drain open, creates great floods of water, and until I can work out a way to lift it, and stick an enormous bucket behind it, I'm going through 5 towels a day, soaking up the mess. What a disaster. Never again will I buy anything from this company. I can't afford to spend $900 a year on a new unit when they inevitably break down, and although it's under an extended warranty this time, I don't want to wait 8 weeks while it's sent off, for repair, in 35 degree temperatures!
Help my polo cool is blowing warm air
Called polo cool company they said it could need a regas called Harvey normal they gave us the contractor and he said you may as we'll throw it away cause it would cost to much to fix it???
anyone have the same problem
Hopefully it will cool my three bedroom house ,
I bought a polo cool p/c -53AP/ my living area kitchen dinning and lounge room are a open plan will one polo cool be enough. I have tried other brands that have not been able to cool my living area. I have read the reviews and have come to the conclusion that polo cool seem to be the unit I have been after . Hopefully
Would recommend this machine
We used to have a Delongi portable air, until it failed completely after only two years. The polo cool is reliable, and cools our 4m X 3m room quickly on very hot days. It's a lot quieter than the Delongi too. Would certainly recommend to friends and family. Keep cool!
Quiet and efficient cooling
Not much. Could design connection of exhaust a bit better.
i bought two of the 6kw versions and placed them so that the hot air was released up into the fireplace. lounge room is 10 x 6 metres. top story unit. double brick but one side faces west. outside its 40 and inside its 24. outstanding - but have to buy two!
nothing - expected the noise -- but lets see the bill
Fan Blower Replacement Part
Hi .I have a polocool PC-53AP/C. The fan blower that pushes the hot air out of the unit ,is been shredded to pieces.I'm looking for a replacement. I've located a parts supplier company that has the part in stock however they don't sell direct to public.Any assistance in purchasing the part would be greatly appreciated thanks.
Fan blower screw-on nut was not tightened properly from manufacturer.Caused the exhaust fan blower to shred to pieces .
Polocool 5.5kw Portable AirCon
Currently renting a 2 bedroom north facing, rooftop unit with poor insulation (sheet metal roof), one window. The living/dining/kitchen is open plan and is about 55sq.m. When it is 35degrees C. outside this unit runs all day to keep the room comfortable cool (not ice cool), alternatively the thermostat set to about 27deg C. will make the unit cut off to save money but keep the room a little warmer.
The unit is the most powerful unit I could find, after 1 month I have not had to empty the water yet
Paid $940 for the unit from Harvey Norman B...
An excellent Air Conditioner
I bought a Polocool 5.5KW model and I love it. When it's 34 degrees outside, the Polocool cools my 25 sq metre bedroom down to 23 degrees in a couple of minutes. I am sure that this Air Con could easily cool a much larger area with ease. I am extremely happy with it. It is a bit noisy, but that doesn't bother me because I could sleep through a train wreck! In fact I think the noise helps me sleep. Prices do vary considerably. I bought mine from Harvey Norman on Sale, and paid $799.00. You can buy this Air Con online for $899.00, which is still...good value, because this unit is clearly of very good quality, and the relief and comfort that it will provide you with, makes it worth every cent. Apart from cooling the air it also purifies the air. I have suffered from Hay Fever for over 20 years, and every morning I would wake up sneezing because of airborne dust. I don't sneeze in the mornings anymore, because the Polocool has filtered the air. For people who rent, this Air Con is perfect. Highly recommended.
I was surprised
Renting a weatherboard house in QLD is the pits in summer. Thank goodness for the polo cool. It cools the lounge, dining and kitchen as good as a split and I can't complain about the performance. However, I thought i'd buy 2 units to cool the hallway leading to the bedrooms but using both together trips the safety switch. Also it's too loud for bedrooms but much quieter than some of the other brands available. The window kit is very easy too use. Be wary of price differences between stores. I bought from Harvey Norman and they dropped their pri...ce from $1299 to $899. I'm sure you can get a better price but I needed to buy the unit that particular day. I'd highly recommend this unit. If it was a little quieter i'd give it 5 stars. Cools a large area. Very happy with performance Too loud for bedroom.

Extremely Happy with it's performance
I was originally going to buy a Dimplex unit but after hearing the the Dimplex and PoloCool operating side by side in the showroom I was sold on the PoloCool as it was significantly quieter in operation. It is also nearly maintenance free with no water container to fill or empty unless you use it in dehumidify mode where you will then need to drain the water.
It has performed above and beyond my expectations for a Portable Unit and does an excellent job at cooling down the office/study and main bedroom (18 and 25sqm) to 22 degrees while out...side is 30+. I haven't tried the unit in the loungeroom as there is a split system in the living areas but I am confident it can cool closed rooms up to 39msq as it claims. The included window kit is basic and will fit windows up to 1200mm, I ended up buying a roll of foam weather strip to put on either side of it as it doesn't do a good job of sealing the window on it's own and I had to drill a hole and fit a screw to suit my windows. The unit is on the larger side for the portable unit's and takes a little bit of effort to push on carpet but is still ok to maneuver. The instruction manual is comprehensive and clearly explains installation, operation and variables that will effect it's efficiency. Having said that the unit is quieter than some other models it is still a bit too loud to sleep with in the bedroom. I was a bit apprehensive at first due to not knowing the brand but got the warranty extended up to 5yrs and a very significant discount on the ticket price, shop around as you can get a considerable chunk slashed off these units which makes it very competitive against the smaller units considering it's size. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase of this unit and would have given it 5 stars if it was a touch quieter. Cools small rooms quickly, quieter than alot of other models, has a swing function on the air outlet, remote control, 2yr factory warranty, window kit included, no water containers to fill or empty, can be purchased for the same (if not less) price as smaller units if you haggle/shop around Even though it's quieter than alot of other models it's still on the loud side for the bedroom
Questions & Answers
I have the polo cool pc35, not listed here but wondering if anyone knows how to take these things apart to clean? Mine has been blowing smelly mouldy air and I’ve cleaned/scrubbed filters, tried my best to clean condensers but I really need to take it apart to clean it properly and to clean inside the machine to stop this awful smell.
