    Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

    Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

    Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

    Went back after two weeks

    Tweety72 10/7/2021

    Worked great for about two weeks, I think but it never tracked the temperature in the room as stated in the manual. Itcame with batteries I stalledin remote, which I found odd, Duracell of all things. However, after two weeks or so, stopped blowing cool air. Would blow air for about 5 minutes then quit. Checked water level, empty… no error codes, Just quit… I think someone sold us a bad one that was brought back as the batteries were a clear give away…very odd. Therefore, since never worked right from beginning with temp readings and since it quit working after about two weeks, I have to give it one star. It was very disappointing.

    Mike18880 9/22/2021

    I purchased this product during the extreme summer of 2021 and units were scarce as a result. I have sliding windows so this type of A/C would install within an hour. It made a miserable summer very bearable for my dog and myself, I should have gotten one far sooner. It blows air with sufficient force that my ceiling fan spins slowly from the breeze. The air filter is just a rinse off type under a faucet. Very well thought out design. The size was adequate for making my home comfortable in the living room.

    mel7676 9/4/2021

    The manual says to drain water from air conditioner at the bottom drain user a 1 12" pie pan, or connect a water hose to the top drain. I had to place my G.E, unit on a 3/4 board to get a pan under mine to drain water. Otherwise everything worked fine, no problems, the unit really does an excellent job. would recommended

    In addition to completely dying after a few weeks, this thing was LOUD when it did work. I've had other portable units and for the cost this thing was the worst value as too cooling power, noise, and longevity.

    Works great, unable to buy duel hose due to GE

    RunningOutOfNames 8/23/2021

    Works as advertised. However, I bought this one mainly for the duel hose conversion kit and LOWES and GE both do not have them anymore. GE doesn't have any ETA on when they will make more. Never would've bought this had we known this as it's important to keep out hot air and that's what the conversion kit does. Part is RAP02 kit.

    Rick789g4 8/23/2021

    I bought this unit because of the dual hose capabilities with the purchase of a hose kit. I went on GE website to order this kit to find out it is not available and GE could not give you any schedule on when it might become available. If you are looking for a dual hose system do not buy this unit. Other than that it is a nice looking unit that dose work as advertised. I guess I will just have to wait and see if GE comes up the dual hose kit.

    Doing a good job

    Gene458 8/10/2021

    I bought this unit to air condition my garage/workshop. It's doing a good job, about what I expected as I live in Florida. I bought this type of unit because my garage window is too small for a window mount air conditioner. Solved the problem. Would still like to get the RAP02 dual hose conversion kit when it becomes available to be able to increase the cooling efficiency.

    Great Portable AC

    Cool from now on 8/6/2021

    Bought this unit for emergency AC that will run off a 110 outlet to cool a small 400 sf living space. Being in Florida we have had a lot of thunder storms and hurricanes in the past and without AC in the house it can be quite miserable. I quickly set this unit up to run off my portable generate to at least keep one room of the house cool. It is easy to set up and simple to use. The hardest part was setting up the window connection which took about an hour to complete because I wanted to make sure the window was secure if I wanted to leave the unit in place for multiple days. Last time we lost power 2 years ago we were without AC for 6 days, not any more.

    Nice room air conditioner

    Grubster69 8/5/2021

    The price was a little high for the unit but I bought this one based on previous reviews of the product and the fact that there wasn't a lot more available locally.

    Easy Install Does the Job

    TexasP 8/4/2021

    Our AC went out. South Texas August heat. We needed something fast. We have another unit of a different brand in another room. We now prefer this unit. This unit was easy install, & does the basic job. We really needed one with a higher DOE rating, but this was the only one left in stock. It lowered the temp enough that we don't melt.

    Moves a lot of cool air

    Purchased for temporary use when our house AC unit died. Worked well to take the edge off the heat and humidity on our main floor

    Love my lifesaver

    shari24 8/4/2021

    I live in Texas, my AC broke, was devastated as I work from home, went to Lowes and found my portable AC, it was a lifesaver as July in Texas is horrific. AC got fixed three days later, still use my new portable AC in my bedroom and gotta tell you my dog and I are in heaven and we sleep so wonderful!!

    Hard worker!

    Sly Stone 8/3/2021

    Blows really cold air, which is why we're looking for. Only downside was the insulation strips and how they don't work well in a horizontal sliding window.

    Cold Air

    Drum Pickle 8/2/2021

    This GE product was installed two days prior to this review, so product durability will not be addressed in this review. So far the unit has produced very cold air and has performed exactly as advertised.
