Refurbished but an excellent price for an inverter with dual hose. If you need a portable unit, this is the way to go

It needs to be emptied... and very often if it is humid. I had to hook a condensate pump up to mine because it will fill up in a couple hours in aircon mode.

Refilled with what? It has no headlights so it doesn't take headlight fluid, there is no traditional transmission or CVT so no ATF is needed, and there is no beer storage compartment (-1 star), so I don't know what you'd refill it with. Consumer refrigeration units are generally not rechargeable, if that's what you mean, and properly functioning A/C units do not need to be recharged anyway.

Look at the SEER rating. That is it's purpose: to provide a relative and quantitative rating that is common across different units and technologies.

For instance a 13 SEER unit would be 7%, 13%, 19% less efficient than a 14, 15, 16 SEER unit. Reference: https://www.trane.com/residential/en/resources/blog/whats-good-seer-rating/

Got this on 6/14 for the same price and I'm decently satisfied with it. On average is uses 200 watts when temp is between 70F-80F and 500 watts when its 80F to 90F for me.

It added about $35 to my monthly electric bill between July to September. I have it installed upstairs in my home cooling 2 bedrooms (around 500 sqft) which have the doors open as that location becomes unbearably hot in the summer.

Initially the AC made a bad impression as it arrived with the fan louver detached and leaked. But the louver is easily snapped back into place and the leaking was resolved by simply tightening the bottom drain cap.

I've had it on 24/7 since I got it and it performs like a champ barely making any noise (Auto Mode seems to keep the fan on low most of the time). I keep it on Auto Cool mode at 72F. I've felt it put out cold air only using 20 watts; the inverter technology really does work and it's great IMO.

The dehumidifier function did not work well for me however. The unit used 700 watts when in dehumidification mode set at 72F when outside temps where around 78-80F, was loud and didn't cool as well when in standard Cool Mode.

I have not tried the heating function out yet but it sounds like it could be a pain as it requires a drain hose due to condensation. Also I've heard that heat mode will only work efficiently if temps are above 42F but I'm not absolutely sure of this.

You can also optimize efficiency and cooling by insulating the exhaust hose. I wrapped the exhaust hose with bubble wrap, then aluminum foil and finally sealed it all with plastic wrap. If you don't want to go the ghetto MacGyver route; you can buy insulating foam wrap easily online that's designed for portable AC exhaust hoses. Regardless what you do; make sure you insulate the hose as it will decrease energy usage and improve cooling.

Overall, I would recommend this but the most ideal solution is to install a mini-split heat pump in your home as it is a more permanent and elegant solution. Some states have incredible rebates for first time mini-split heat pump buyers (Maine has $2,000) so perhaps it would be better to determine if your state has decent rebate programs before buying this.
Anyone in the market for an AC like this should know that dual hose is the ONLY way to go. I went through several of these for rooms in our primary and holiday homes. The single hose were not as effective as the dual hose. Dual hose ran cheaper and cooled MUCH better. This is a really good price for any dual hose, I think we paid an average of say 500 USD for ours. Can't speak to this brand or model but the design is the only one worth considering IMO. Dual hose all the way.

when i set to auto fan mode on cool the fan always go to high. temps were in the low 90s, very low humidity. the ac itself is quiet compared to non inverter units but the fan noise for me was pretty darn loud. had to run it on low-med.

Not familiar with how woot works. I cannot see any return options and it seems like there are only 90 days of warranty. Is this a good buy?

I got the Whynter version of this recently and am very satisfied with the cooling in the three weeks or so that I've used it. It generally runs on low to keep the room to the set temp so it's not loud at all. On low setting it varies between 100 and 300 watts. I haven't tried the heat function yet because it hasn't been cool enough.

Is the refurbishment done nicely? this is an excellent deal by the way. These units were being sold at HomeDepot for 699. This has a variable speed compressor so the unit never really turns off rather the compressor goes to slow speed when the required temp is met. I just hope Woot is not selling any bad units within these refurbished units. If you really want a brand new unit, check below. These are not not refurbished and are slightly less in btu 10k vs these 12k. Also the Danby unit does not have heat. Also note if you plan on using heat for longer period, you will need to connect the continuous drain pipe as these units to drain in heat and dehumidification modes. For cooling the draining is not required…That's my understanding.

Missed the previous posting and many have said they have been satisfied with the refurbished unit. I'm hoping it'll help with the electricity bill. Been using an older Sharp in-wall AC that's Energy Star rated, but I don't really know how old the AC is since it was here when I got the place. With a little online search, it seems like it's a 10-12 years old unit. Hopefully this Toshiba will be better. Thanks OP!

I bought this from woot a few weeks ago and the unit I received was broken. When the compressor turned on it made a loud banging noise that sounded like something was loose internally. Returned it without issue via ups pickup. Rolling the dice and buying again in hopes that I get a working unit this time.
