Works great but will require maintenance in future years

About Me Quality Oriented
Comments about Amana 12,000 BTU Windowless Portable Air Conditioner:
Ive owned this model for a few years. Works great but you need to be handy to maintain it. I had to take it apart to clean the lower coils after two years. The lower air intake does not have a filter, so cat hair gets sucked in and gets stuck to the lower coils. This causes the AC to struggle to operate. Also the vinyl hose broke apart. Its very hard to find a replacement hose or atleast one at a good price.There was one review that said it blows hot air. You have to vent the hot air outside using the hose. Thats how every AC works.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this unit and its great. We went from a 8,000 BTU to this and what a difference! It cools the whole living room within 30 minutes, its not loud, has 2 vents instead of one so double the air is going out. Its not unattractive looking, its heavy though but other than that, its a great unit and i was pleasantly surprised. Its a bit expensive but its worth it. It even cools the kitchen which is off the living room. In fact, it gets the living room so cold that sometimes i have to turn it off for a little while. Highly recommend.

Powerful AC unit - cools practically the whole house at once! Definately must vent exhaust out a window as this unit will generate a ton of heat in the cooling process. Love the auto timer feature as well. Can set to cool a few hours before coming home from work.My biggest issue - and this will be with any portable AC unit, is the unsightly window install. Just not a good way to make it look decent. Although I will suffer asthetics for a cool house any day....

Other reviews are suspect...
from Southern NJ
Of the other two reviews: Sounds like the first fellow didn't install the exhaust pipe...which would be as effective as a refrigerator with the door left open continuously. Hot air must vented outside! The the second review refers to a water bucket, but this Amana either evaporates the condensate out with the hot air, or out a bottom drain. If his unit has a "bucket", it sounds like it's a completely different model.

GREAT PORTABLE A/C
from Nanuet, NY
Overall, I purchased this a/c last year in summer and this is a great a/c but after couple of months use, it started putting out a bad smell, cleaned the filters and drained the water from the bucket but there was some bad smell coming out. Luckly I had purchased a 3 yr warraty from PC Richards but When I had told PC Richards about the problem they told me to bring this heavy a/c to the store for exchange and that was not a good thing. Purchasing the warranty should have covered for someone to come to our house location and swap this unit. This was the only dissappointing thing.
