Nice price for this portable air conditioner which can cool and heat rooms up to 400-500 sq. ft. Portable Air Conditioners are ideal for those who would like to cool or heat a room without having worry about a complex installation and they can be moved to storage easily because of their compact design and wheels. -slickdewmaster

Question:
1. Is this inefficient if the room size is 300 square feet (vs 400-500 recommended in specs)?

2. Has anyone has experience with BJ's Protection Service Plan? Thanks.

max cooling efficiency tip:
I strongly advise "sleeving" the A/C exhaust pipe inside of a slightly larger diameter insulated ducting on its journey to the window to be exhausted.
This A/C unit has 5" ducts, so getting some 6" insulated ducting (you'll probably only use about 3-5 feet) should allow you to effortlessly slip one duct inside the other. (note: the intake duct can be left unmodified/bare)
Without this modification, the roasting hot bare exhaust hose will be radiating lots of heat back into room. ...over its entire lifetime of summertime usage.
..look for a product like this https://www.lowes.com/pd/IMPERIAL...t/50401792
This fix can/should create a noticeable uptick in performance.

FYI: I just received my unit and the exhaust duct is bigger than the intake. The exhaust is 6" in diameter (intake is 5")

Firstly, you are correct that portable A/C units are inherently less efficient than window A/C units. That being said, a good 2-hose portable A/C WILL indeed cool down your room.
For the last several years I've spent most of my time in a building that's cooled entirely by just two portable A/C units, -one upstairs, one downstairs.
Downstairs there are (literally) thousands of watts of other heat-producing electronics running.
Upstairs is another room jam-packed with electronics (converted 12x40 attic void into an electronics room)
I spend most of my time in the converted attic space, cool and comfy.

Being smart about it also helps. I also slipped my exhaust hose into an insulated "sleeve" of flexible ducting on its way to the window to be exhausted. So instead of 4 feet of roasting hot pipe radiating heat freely back into the room air, my insulted exhaust pipe is cool to the touch, with all the heat successfully making the complete run to the window (without simply radiating through the walls of the exhaust pipe back into the room). This simple extra provision creates a marked improvement in the lifetime cooling capabilities of a portable A/C unit. I employ the simple modification upstairs and down.
I literally bask in the satisfying A/C every summer, all of which is created by my two portable A/C units.
I purposely found an A/C unit with 5" diameter hoses, so I could buy 6" diameter insulated ducting and easily slip one inside the other. If your A/C unit has 6" hoses, then buy some 8" insulated ducting. Without this modification, you will essentially have "a little heater" living right behind your air conditioner 24/7. With this modification, that "little heater" is eliminated.

I have the older model without heat still running strong, 7 years later and it was worth every penny.

It'll work, but I wouldn't do it. The constant cycling of the compressor will be hard on the TV electronics.

IMHO portable AC doesnt work at all.no matter what the BTU is or what hose u r using
if possible go for windows AC.

i have tried this Haier, whynter, LG and de longhi from costco.

with single hose ,the heat is so intense on the back of AC , that room temperature never dips because,from front side it is cooling and from back its heating.

with dual hose, unless weather outside is not high portable AC would work just ok.once the weather is in upper 82 F ,Dual hose portable AC Stops cooling

Any thoughts on the actual noise output on these?
I'm interested in purchasing one for my guest bedroom however someone would be sleeping a few feet away from it.

Window a/c definitely works better, but I have an HOA that doesn't allow them. I have central air, but the temperature in the upstairs of my house gets bad, so portable a/c in the bedroom is really the only thing I can do.
