Air Conditioner Review

Factory-Reconditioned DeLonghi PAC290SRB Portable Air Conditioner, 8500 btu
A/C Rating:

Fully portable on sturdy casters and operating on ordinary, 110-volt household current, this air conditioner cools a room up to 16 by 16 feet (with an 8-foot ceiling) by exhausting warm, humid air by means of a flexible 51-inch hose. It comes with an adjustable 4-foot window bracket that the hose fits through. Or the hose can be placed in a 3-1/2-inch-diameter hole in a door, wall, or ceiling (bracket included). The air conditioner is energy efficient because it operates entirely inside--unlike a window air conditioner, which uses hot and/or humid outside air to cool its condenser. Filled with water, it features a "Super Cool" setting for operating at its full 8,500-Btu capacity for 8 hours, and it operates indefinitely at 88 percent (or 7,500 Btu) of capacity even when it's dry. It has a two-speed fan and can be left on around the clock thanks to an electronic thermostat that turns the unit on and off to maintain a selected comfort level and to a 24-hour timer that can be programmed to turn the unit on and off at selected times. To dehumidify a room, the unit collects about 51 pints of moisture from the air in 24 hours. In a patented process, it then employs that moisture to enhance the cooling cycle, exhausting excess through the hose and eliminating the need to empty a water-condensation receptacle. (The unit can be operated as a dehumidifier only.) The unit measures 22 inches wide, 28-3/4 inches high, and 16-3/8 inches deep and weighs 97 pounds. It can be moved from room to room or installed semi-permanently. (Installation kit included.) Hand grips make it easy to move. Ruggedly constructed, it has a metal cabinet, copper piping, and a first-rate finned evaporator. The cabinet is fully insulated so the unit operates exceptionally quietly. Two antibacterial filters collect dust particles and prevent bacteria buildup. To prevent freezing, the unit shuts off automatically when the temperature drops too low. Made it Italy, it carries a one-year parts-and-labor warranty against defects, with the warranty extending to three years for the sealed system of compressor, evaporator, condenser, and factory-connected refrigerant tubing.--Fred Brack
