It has a digital LED display panel and a remote control that lets you adjust the temperature accurately even from a distance in the room.
The 10,000 BTU is good for spot cooling a room that measures up to 161 sq feet or 15 sq meters. It does not come with a drain hose and you won’t need to set up a hose for draining water as it includes a built-in water-full-smart indicator and automatic evaporation as part of its no-drip design. You can move this portable air con effortlessly on its four caster wheels that are easy to roll.
Costway 10,000 BTU Portable AC weighs 49 pounds and measures 12 x 13 x 30 inches. You may use this compact aircon comfortably in small apartments, dorm rooms and anywhere that you think you may have restricted space. It is ideal for use both at home or in the office and you can make it work in sleep, fan, dehumidify and cooling modes. The filter slides out and can be washed under running water for you to have cool and fresh air constantly.
You can adjust the time, fan speed and temperature easily with the remote control from the other side of the room. You’ll get a quick install window kit to help you out with the easy assembly. And you can exhaust the unit through windows that open vertically or horizontally with this window kit. It offers up and down air deflection that helps circulate the air evenly in the room.
So there aren’t any hot spots and there is plenty of airflow in the room (airflow of 380 m³/H). It comes with some great features like the very intelligent temp sensor, a 24-hour on/off timer that you can program and cools on schedule, water-level check and water-full warning. It can dehumidify up to 50 pints every day and comes with a single exhaust hose that extends between 11” to 5’ length. You’ll find the tank for collecting water at the rear and you can’t remove it. It doesn’t leak any water like some of the other brands or models on the market. You can set the temperature between 62 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit.
In the box, you’ll find the Costway Air Conditioner, an exhaust hose, a window seal plate and a remote control. The noise level is specified as 56 decibels, so it is not a very quiet cooler but does the cooling job very well. You should still be able to sleep with it running in the room. Please note that this one works with an exhaust hose and you do need to have an access to a window to be able to get the hot air out. The fan runs constantly no matter what the temperature is in the room but the compressor shuts on and off like a fridge. It offers very decent value overall.
