Customer Reviews

Danby 12000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased with our Danby air conditioner We use this unit in a den/kitchen combo area. It works wonderfully to cool the entire area and allows us to keep the whole house air off or at a higher temp. The room we use it for is afternoon sunshine so it really heats up. The unit solved that problem and is much less of an electricity guzzler than our house air. We live in an area that does get many over 100+ degrees in summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Air conditioner I was tried to put the window air conditioner in every year so I decided to buy the floor model on wheels that only takes 5 mins to put the hose to the window and have cool air and able to move from room to room this unit was the best decision I could have made for an upgrade for apartment living

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Très efficace et rapide pour une pièce moyenne J ai acheté ce produit pour climatiser notre chambre à coucher. Il est très efficace et facile d'entretien. Je n ai pas beaucoup utilisé le chauffage et le déshumidificateur mais ils fonctionnent très bien. Le seul défaut est qu il est trop bruyant même à la plus basse vitesse. Je suis certain que vous pouvez faire mieux. Donc à cause du bruit, je regarderais probablement d autre marques d ou ma non recommandation. Sorry.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good air conditioner I'm impressed with th quick cooling ability and not having to worry about dumping water. The only thing I disliked was the hook up to the window. It is very cheaply made and the tabs broke easily causing me to use clear tape to hold the hose to the window connection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great air conditioner Bought this portable air conditioner for a small 3 1/2 apartment. It works perfectly for cooling open areas rooms. Electrical consumption did not increase dramatically. For an apartment, it's an excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Portable Air Conditioner This is one of the best purchases I have ever made. This air conditioner sits in my bedroom and I have absolutely no problems falling to sleep. It keeps my bedroom extremely cool in 90 degree weather. I find it really quiet. It is actually quieter than the fan I was using before I purchased this unit. I am very pleased!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Machine It has wheels and is super easy to move. It connects to Windows and or sliding patio doors. Cools our 1200 Sq ft condo surprisingly well with a regular fan to direct cool air into an adjacent normally very hot room. Also, it's fairly quiet. Very glad we bought it!

When selected, this automatically sets the appropriate option for your room based on the ambient temperature. For example, if it is 15°C outside, the unit would flip to fan mode. If it is set to 30°C, the unit would revert back to cooling mode.
On most models with heat mode, it is advised to use the hose for direct drain. This will ensure the pan does not fill up too quickly.
No, this is not recommended. Please bring your AC unit indoors during the winter months.
Dual hose models have an intake and exhaust hose. With single hose models, the hose exhausts and the air that is to be “conditioned” is taken in from the room through the unit.
Units with three drainage ports are units which also feature heat mode. The bottom drainage port empties the internal pan, the middle port is for continuous drain during heat and the top port is for continuous drain during dry mode. Please consult your owner’s manual for more detail.
This is not recommended, as the unit is built to operate using the drain hose/power cord provided.
During heat mode, dry mode or continuous draining. Please consult your owner’s manuals for more details.
You should always use it during cooling and heating. It is not required during fan and dry mode. Please consult your owner’s manuals for more details.
The water drains from the drainage port. If you are not using the continuous drain, the internal pan drains from the bottom outlet. Consult your owner’s manual for more information.
