Effective, value for money
Does the job, easy to use, cheaper than most other portable air conditioners but still quite effective! Glad we purchased this as it has definitely helped to make us feel more comfortable during the hot days and nights.
Better than expected
I live in a three storey townhouse in a gated estate in southwestern Brisbane where there is no tree shade, and air-conditioning is inefficiently and stupidly confined to both the unoccupied lower levels, leaving the hot air build up on the third story where the 2 bedrooms, study/rumpus room, en-suite, and main bath-toilets are located, and people spend most of their time (who ever built this place forgot that warm air rises). It’s also not well insulated, if at all. The rooms on the top floor do have these tiny little air vents in them, but th...ey are extremely noisy when turned on, and do nothing at all to manage the extreme heat build-up, making it unbearably hot. After capturing dangerously hot temps, I took the issue to the property manager who suggested getting one of these units from Aldi. I was desperate, so I was prepared to spend the $300 just to be able to sleep without waking up in a pool of sweat every 15 minutes. Now, the thing to remember with these things is that they’re not air-conditioning in the same way a built in unit is. It won’t make one room crisply cold, let alone a whole storey, but my God, the difference it makes is huge. I can now get a decent night’s sleep, and get out of a shower without immediately needing to jump back in. For that alone, it was well worth the $300!
