We are pleased about the features of this portable air conditioner and the smooth installation. Using the remote to control the fan and cooling speeds surpass none.

Mosessrod 9/24/2020

It's powerful and can cool down my relatively big room. Has a timer and other options. However, this appliance is very LOUD! Also, the vent panel is NOT LONG ENOUGH to cover my horizontal window. I needed to use tape and cardboard to fully cover the exhaust panel.

Too loud

Michaelrow 9/18/2020

Did an OK, not great, job of cooling. Much louder than my previous portable a/c unit. That one was rated 9000 BTU, but cooled more effectively than this 12000 BTU unit. Temperature display only reads out the set point, not the current room temperature. Had to turn the unit OFF in order to see the current room temp. (I believe this was a malfunction in this unit, but possibly was the design. According to the manual, it should have displayed the current room temp. after a few seconds, while still on.)

Excellent Portable Air Conditioner

Rocker3120 9/12/2020

The GE portable Air Conditioner - Model # APCA12YZMW is excellent! I have only had it for about 2 weeks and it's been performing very well, and it was very quick and easy to install. In addition, the picture of it posted on the internet does it little justice. It is a beautiful compact unit. I truly was very much surprised and happy when I received I received it! I highly recommend it!

Just what we needed

Retired Ace 9/5/2020

Our central air went out on the hottest, most humid day of the summer. This GE model with its built in dehumidifier was a lifesaver. It got us through until our central air could be repaired. Bonus is my husband will now use it to air condition his garage where it will be on standby should we need it again in an emergency.

Aquanfu 8/26/2020

The air conditioner itself works fine but the hose connections are horrible and need modification to work, or you will spend a lot of time reconnecting the hose. Also the lower drain plug is too low to be practical . No on that I know of produces a pan shallow enough to put below that drain opening. Last it is barley portable because it is really heavy to move to an upper floor

Works like it is supposed to.

cozjr46 8/12/2020

We are up in NYC from FL to take care of my wife's grandma's end of life care. The 16K btu apartment sleeve A/C went out for my wife's grandmother's apartment so I bought this unit because there has been a heat wave and they were unable to afford a replacement at this time. I set this up with some additional fans to move the air further and was able to make the living room and dining room area comfortably cooler. We moved one strong fan closer to the 2 bedrooms and were able to reduce the humidity in those rooms during the day with the a/c constantly running after a few hours. It didn't freeze the place as it was being stretched to cool more than it was made for but it definitely helped make a difference. When more than 5 people are in the apartment to pay their respects, it gets clammy but overnight while my wife stays over to care for grandma, it is makes it cool enough for her to sleep in the living room on the couch as it is connected to the living room window. Grandma doesn't like using a/c but appreciated it when the heat was at it's worst because it helped reduce the humidity all the way in her back room while she used her fans. We just want her to pass to the other side pain free and comfortably cool. This unit running 24 hours a day for approximately the last four weeks has definitely come in handy. I have noticed as of late that there is a lot of condensation near the cooler blower part which causes it to blow spritzes of water at times but I think it is because of how it is working 24-7. It is still cooling though. So we greatly appreciate it. Short term it definitely gets 5 stars. We will check back in a year or two from now. Works as it should for sure!

Design concept is thermodynamically flawed

Ndagger 7/22/2020

Purchased this air conditioner to cool a single 260 square foot room. It could not get the room down below 80 degrees even when it was about 85 degrees outside. I did some thinking and the single hose portable air conditioner design is fundamentally flawed. Instead of recirculating cooled air to build up a colder thermal mass in your room, it needs to use air from inside your room to both cool the hot side heat exchanger and heat generated by components, but it blows the air from in your room outside. This means that your room will be operating at a negative pressure and will need to pull air from outside or in your attic or other uncooled place to operate. This means, it will be very difficult or impossible for you to actually cook a room with this design.

LRFrith 7/20/2020

We bought this product because one room in our home stays hot. This cooled the room down almost instantly. I love the features and would recommend to anyone. The only thing that would make this product better would be to have the vents oscilate back and forth.

CoolBen 77 7/17/2020

I was surprised that the unit only cools to 64 degrees. In the specs it doesn't mention this. This is higher than many other brands of portable air conditioners.

Keeps room/space cool and comfortable

Music803 7/14/2020

Pros: This unit definitely keeps the room or space you place it cool and comfortable. Cons: Expandable hose doesn't stay in holder securely, so when I get it in the right spot, I close the window down on it to hold it in place. The unit is also a bit noisy and I need to sleep with ear plugs at night.

Brian107 7/7/2020

Okay this part it's going to be pretty simple the unit works well love the remote control but the downfall to this unit it is very loud almost too loud. Bought it for our bedroom cannot even hear the TV when it's running. I would recommend this for a shop or office area or a large room I would not try to put it in an area where you're going to have a TV or going to have conversations most likely going to end up putting it out in my shop
