Haier 8000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner HPRB08XCM-T for $216 @ Target with in-store pickup discount

$216.00

Regularly $279.99, currently on sale for $239.99 (Same price Groupon is selling the refurbished unit for). Choose in-store pickup for an additional 10% discount, making this unit $216 + tax. Reviews are mixed (3/5), but this is the best price I've found for a NEW portable A/C unit, so I thought it'd be worth a gamble.

It's worth noting that if you don't mind refurbished, Groupon has some other units that are reasonably priced using coupon SALE3 for 10% off. For example, here's another 8,000 BTU Haier AC unit for $220 - 10% SALE3 = $198. However, it's refurbished and final sale.

Nice. There's also a Haier 10,000 BTU A/C for the same price: http://www.target.com/p/haier-100...A-50218975 Edit: this one is a window unit, not portable.

I would do research to know if it'll work for you. I've read something about single hose portable units not working very well because it will take air from inside your house and then blow out the exhaust creating a vacuum effect.
I don't know off hand because I'm away from my house and don't wanna seach for stuff on my phone, but haier did have a duel hose version for around $460 that I price matched for around $400, then the red card discount too. It was a 12,000 btu unit.

You also have to consider that the exhaust heats up the hose and that generates heat. So the farther you have it from the window, the more heat you get.

Yeah I noticed it getting warm, I haven't done it yet but I've read that some people will insulate the hose to help this.
I had been wanting one of these unit because my windows upstairs are really narrow so I could only use a very small window unit in them.

Yeah I never got around to insulating mine, but I've recently upgraded to a window unit. I picked this unit up last year for $60 at a liquidation center. I was using it in a 400 sq ft room which was way too big to cool for this, but it helped and I couldn't pass up the price.

Now that I'm home, this is the Portable Air Unit I had gotten, it's actually 14,000 BTU not 12,000.

http://www.target.com/p/haier-14k...A-52364645 $422.99
and I price matched it to Walmart so I could also get the 5% red card discount.
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Haier-...e/55506046 $339.00

Super easy to price match online, just open chat give the links, buy the item, and they refund the difference as soon as you give them the order number.

Thanks. Hadn't thought about the vacuum thing, but it makes sense. Just not sure that it's really a concern unless your door is sealed air tight, right? Gonna do some research on it since I'll be using one of these for the baby's room. Out of curiosity, does the intake filter get nasty pretty quickly?

The filter will just depend upon your area. I haven't had mine very long yet, like a week now. The instructions seem fairly easy though, just to slide it out, vacuum or wash, then place back in. Looking at the unit itself, it's a fine mesh which you remove and it covers the metal part that you would normally see on the back of a window unit.

The big issue is that the slight vacuum it pulls means that it will pull in warm air from outside (if your windows aren't sealed and doors are) or the other parts of the house (doors unsealed and windows are) which negates part of the cooling that it does do to the room air.

Saw 8k btu for 250$ and 10k btu for 300 at bjs. Those are the slim floor models. But reviews seems awful as well. http://www.bjs.com/haier-8-----bt...uct.288096

i have several questions if someone could help. Recently enclosed my patio 500 sq feet south florida..Winter and fall great no ac needed. Summer and spring unbearable

Can i install this and set a temp meaning it wiill only go on when it reaches a certain temp..I wouldnt want to wait 15 minutes for room to get cold...say like 77 degrees. The room can get as high as 84 in summer months.

Have to make a hole correct? is this enough power to cool 500 sq feet.?

you know I have an older lg model and I have never noticed the hose making much difference to the temp of the room. it always got ice cold in my bedroom.
