Features I didn’t liked
There is not much that I can say against this air conditioner, but still there are some simple issues in its system which is important to look into.
- The air conditioner is noisy and has a noise level of 58dBA. This can be quite disturbing to normal human ears.
- By any chance, if you are a light sleeper, I would recommend you to install it somewhere close to your bedroom, but obviously not in it.
- The air conditioner creates negative airflow in your room.
- Because it is a single hose cooling system, the air-conditioner uses the air present in the room. So if you have placed it in a closed room, it is possible that you may hear some hissing sounds coming from the cracks and spaces of your door.
- The drainage system of this air conditioner is not so good where you would be required to place a container just underneath it.
Overall this cooling machine is suitable for those who want superior cooling. Its air conditioning is powerful enough to cool a room size of 600 square feet. The oscillating fan can keep hot spots away easily out of your room.
At a great price for a powerful unit, this conditioner is very worth the money to serve you enough comfortably.
