    Good small unit

    published

    Good unit, does the work during those hot days without spending a lot. Has timer option which is really helpful to save surprises from huge electricity bills. Sound is a big negative side of this unit. Once you get use to then the unit is awesome. I have been using it for over 2 years.

    Best portable aircon for the money!

    published

    This is the "big brother" to oapc1413w, which I have also reviewed. Simply put, this is a more powerful unit for a larger bedroom. It can get the room down to refrigeration level in as little as 10 minutes, that's pretty spectacular for a portable unit! If you rent, and are unable to cut a hole in the wall to install a split system, then this is the unit for you. I am very happy with this aircon and Omega Altise as company.



    Questions & Answers

    Does this unit require you to drain the condensate from a tank in cooling mode; or does it avoid this by (1) passing the condensate over the hot coils to evaporate the condensate (i.e. self-evaporative unit); or (2) spraying the condensate as a mist out of the exhaust pipe (MIST design)?

    I'm not quite sure what either are in relation to this unit. It does require a drain hose into a bucket or out through the floor to remove the water that condenses from the unit. Hope this helps!

    That is the answer that I needed. More and more units now evaporate or spray out the consensate, so that no drain hose and bucket are needed. However, this is only in cooling mode.

    Is this unit self-evaporative, or does it use MIST design (the same thing)?

    Thank you, that is what I needed to know. I will avoid the product for this reason.
