    This unit is good for basic cooling needs. The hand book is terrible! I own the Delonghi PAC A120 LE (ECO). Some of the things the book does not explain is how to clear a clogged drain hole, how to clean the sides of the unit as they become clogged with dust, animal hair, etc, and how to properly hook a drain hose to the back of the unit so it will drain correctly.

    The first year my unit worked great, but it needs regular maintenance if you want it to still run. I would say every couple months take off both side panels and use a vacuum to clean it out. Also take the pull out filter off the back and clean that as well. Make sure and hook a small drain hose to the back so it can properly drain. My unit began leaking and then forced me to take a closer look. When this happen I took the side panel off. If your looking at the back of the unit it will be on the right side panel. Take the 6 screws our then slide the panel down and it should come off. Once off look at the white tray and it should be totally filled with water if you were having the leaking problem. Get a small wire and insert it slightly into the hole. Once this is done hopefully the water will drain. (Mine did). Then get a pipe cleaner and stick it slightly in the hole to get any loose particulates out. A review I read on here then said to cycle bleach through it but I did not want to do this. After I cleaned the hole out it worked fine.

    When we first got this unit we were amazed at how it was convienant and cool. I learned the hard way. The unit released so much water during the night that it soaked my carpet so bad. The damage was at leased five feet long and three feet wide. It damaged my living room ceiling as well. As I am googling right now how I can save my smelly warped carpet I came across write a review. DO NOT BUY this unit. It will fool you but long and behold it will leak and ruin what ever its under. I am disgusted by the smell of white vinegar and baking soda trying to clean my carpet that I can not afford to change. This unit was enough money not to do this. Please invest in another unit. Save yourself the scrubbing and construction ahead of time.

    It was a pleasure doing business with Sylvane. The experience was great from ordering right to the delivery. The a/c units work very well

    Bought One Summer Ago

    By Dan Marquez

    from USA

    Comments about DeLonghi PAC A120E Portable Air Conditioner (12,000 BTU):

    Leaks all over the floor. Took the air apart and put everything back together and was shocked at what shoddy workmanship went into this. Every time I turn around I have to wipe up the water and it's all placed in properly. The manufacturer needs to change something.

    I LOVE our new portable ac unit! It works great in our bedroom, allowing me to keep the ac up at a higher temperature throughout the rest of the house & has saved us money on the electrical bill! :)

    Delonghi Pinguino 120E

    By Ray Carpenter

    from USA

    Comments about DeLonghi PAC A120E Portable Air Conditioner (12,000 BTU):

    I selected the Delonghi Pinguino A120E and am very pleased with it. The difference in quality was noticed instantly as I unpacked the box. I had the unit up and running in about 5-10 minutes, and it has been doing so non-stop for about 9 days now, and doing a great job in the process. The manual is easy to understand with no loss in translation, and the quality far surpasses each of the two other models I have tried. Frankly, this thing is incredibly productive, yet quite and efficient. If the thing can continue doing such a magnificent job through the summer, Delonghi will have earned a new fan.

    PAC A120E De Longhi A/C 12,000 BTU

    By Doris E

    from USA

    Comments about DeLonghi PAC A120E Portable Air Conditioner (12,000 BTU):

    We wanted it to take the edge off a 20 x 23 sun room and it worked fine, but the temps were not 90+ like we experienced earlier this summer. I even hooked it up entirely by myself. We should have had a higher BTU, but we were told we might not get it in time for a long weekend of 20+ people.

    DeLonghi - Easy, Quick and Affordable

    By James Kopchuk

    from USA

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about DeLonghi PAC A120E Portable Air Conditioner (12,000 BTU):

    After review of several self-contained air conditioning units, I decided on the DeLonghi PAC A120E Portable Air Conditioner (12,000 BTU)and purchased from Sylvane. The ease of ordering on the Sylvane website was quick and easy. The web site was intuitive and I was able to download a .pdf file of the unit to verify it was good fit for the intended space.

    In less than 2 days, the unit was delivered to my home after ordering on a Sunday Afternoon. I reviewed the installation directions and the unit was up and operating within an hour after bringing it in the house. The intended space to cool is a 3rd floor bedroom with lots of sun throughout the day. With the installation of the DeLonghi, the room instantly cools and I can't be happier with the product. I highly recommend this unit to supplement any home HVAC unit which just can't seem to cool the one room furthest from the condensing unit.

    Ordering and installation was wasy, quick and an affordable way to cool a room.

    DeLonghi PAC A120E

    By Laura Draeger

    Comments about DeLonghi PAC A120E Portable Air Conditioner (12,000 BTU):

    We bought this portable air conditioner for occasional use - times in the late summer when both days and nights are hot and humid. We chose this unit in part because of the extended warranty on the compressor. This particular unit was also reduced in price because it had been previously opened. We have had no problems with this unit, but were reassured by Sylvane 's one month return policy.

    We get the best performance from this air conditioner under hot and humid conditions by first dehumidifying and then cooling individual rooms. The amount of cooling possible is relative to the outside temperature: we can only cool the inside to around ten degrees below the outside temperature. After reaching this differential, continuous cooling does not improve the inside temperature; so it makes sense to turn the air conditioner off for awhile (which can happen automatically by setting the temperature control appropriately). If we combine the cooling and dehumidification, the inside environment is still fairly comfortable even if the inside temperature reads 80 degrees.

    We have had no problems with the unit leaking onto the floor. There is some condensation around the cooling vent.

    We are able to use this unit with a casement window by fitting a thin piece of plywood into the window opening that has a circle cut into plywood for the hose attachment. The plywood needs to be snug - we tacked a strip of wool around the outside edge to avoid damaging the window frame. We also added a handle to the plywood so we can easily pull the plywood out.

    The unit has a few shortcomings: the casters are not easy to roll, and the exhaust hose seems short. Our windows are low, but the hose might not reach a higher window. The air conditioning and humidifier modes seem loud, but we aren't surprised as the compressor is in the room (rather than outside as with a window air conditioner).

    leaks

    By MIke & Elizabeth

    from USA

    Comments about DeLonghi PAC A120E Portable Air Conditioner (12,000 BTU):

    Like the others, my unit leaks. I have the drain plug open, but the unit leaks from around the edges. Water does drain from the plug, so it isn't clogged. My unit is just 2 years old. It has never issued a full tank error, and I suspect it never will. I'd recommend _any_ other solution, unless you want to mount it above a large tray to collect the water.
