Honestly this a/c unit is super disappointing. The exhaust hose does not fit properly and I had to tape it to try to cover the gaps to the unit and the gaps out the window. After all that there's still hot air leaking out. The directions say to just twist it in, but it won't stay, so when I would try to attach it to the window or unit it would just pop out. The window panel was a lot wider than I expected and barely fit into the window. I am unable to cut it down to fit the smaller window that I wanted, so that sucks. It sticks pretty far away from the wall and so not being able to put it at the window that I wanted is inconvenient because it sticks so far out into the room. There's also small gaps in the window panel, where the inside panel slides out, that I had to fill up with a towel because the foam that was included didn't do that well. The unit is supposed to cool a room up to 800 sq ft and it barely cools down my small bedroom, especially if the door is open. I leave it on all day and the room does get a little cooler, but not significantly. The window and through-the-wall units that I have used in the past have cooled the room down within an hour or 2, and did it so well that I would wrap myself in blankets. This is not the case with this unit. I am definitely concerned to see how my next electric bill looks. Another review complained about the noise, but I find it to be comparable to my past through-the-wall & in-window units. The unit itself looks nice, so at least it has a good visual design. Be aware of how heavy this unit is. The specs say 78lbs, and UPS said the entire package was 98lbs. So if you live up multiple flights of steps and/or don't have someone to help you carry it then I would suggest buying something else. Overall, I do not think this is worth the nearly $400 that I paid,and if it wasn't over 100 and humid here, and I had the time and money to return and replace this I would end up getting a window unit like I originally planned instead.
