Been googling it and can't find any EER rating. In all honestly though, for the price compared to a 2016 energy star rated 12.0 unit that goes for $250'ish...if you're in the Northeast like me you'll never see the energy savings wipe out the $140+ cost difference. Now if you live in Arizona and are running these non stop day in and day out...that's a different story. Of course then you probably wouldn't want an Arctic King, and you'd go with an Amana or Friedrich commercial unit

In for (4) for my rental properties, and 1 as a spare for my house

For 8K BTU, just going into the heat of the summer, for $110 delivered: sounds pretty decent.

Can anyone speak to the efficiency of this unit?

I can't seem to find any. It's actually a discontinued model which these days means that it either couldn't meet the Energy Star rating or couldn't meet even the minimum federal EER requirement (Energy Star I think is 20% higher than minimum).

For the price, IMO , it's worth a gamble. Just throw it on a credit card with an extended warranty and you'll be covered if it craps out in the near future

Eh...I don't own this, but pretty much all cheapie room air conditioners are pumped out of the same factories in China..they are all about the same quality, IMO. Quickly glancing at some Amazon reviews for similar models, it seems pretty decent....and you aren't going to find anything at this price. I picked up a Kenmore 8,000 btu at a local Sears Hardware for $150 (supposedly 'last years' model, turns out it was made in 2012 wtf) recently and I thought that was a great deal. I should have waited. Mad

For Con Edison customers, this model is eligible for $30 rebate. Just bought 2 AC's today. Should've waited

according to home depot, EER is 11.3. i cannot however, find if this unit comes with a remote control. some sites say yes, some dont even list it.

This unit looks EXACTLY like a Danby 6,000 btu unit I own and use in the bedroom. It's a little bit on the noisy side but it's not bad. So I think you are right, these are manufactured in the same place with just a different logo/name.

If anyone knows of a deal on a 12,000-15,000 please let me know. I need one for my living room. Or should I stack 2 of those for 16,000 btu total and still have them run on 120v? LOL

almost all electronic-switch air conditioners today come with remote controls. i would be shocked if this one didn't

as far as the EER. 11.3 was last year's requirement which makes sense why these are being clearanced out. 12.0 is the new requirement i believe. in order to reach 12.0 , manufacturers have had to add extra copper tubing into the condensate tray to further assist in heat dissipation away from the condenser coils. in addition, manufacturers are including slide-in insulation sheets that cover the accordion expandable side panels. this also added cost due to the insulation material but then also they had to make a tooling change in the injection mold for each side panel to add channels where the insulation slides into

PECO's rebate last year was $50. i think too many people used the rebate program so they dropped it down to $15...the lowest it's ever been. the best A/C deal i got was on that Soleus 10K unit from Newegg. it was on sale, coupled with a coupon code, then the $50 rebate dropped the price to $120 lol.

ugh most of these units only come with a window kit that expands to 47". My window which slides left to right is 53" high.

anyone know if this model has an extension?

make your own using OSB. to make up for the lack of aesthetics you can spray paint it white. around the edges you can run self-adhesive insulation to assist with sealing

google "window air conditioner with slider window" and you'll find a lot of neat DIY setups
