Tosot 13,500 BTU Portable Air Conditioner with Heater is rated
Rated 4 out of
More good than bad for sure.
There are so many things to like about this unit. I have owned several portable units over the years, but the features and low noise make this one stand out. Even on the highest setting I find this unit very quiet. I have an 8000 btu that on the lowest setting is 10x louder than this one. You can literally feel the cold air across the room and the auto feature works great. I’m away from home now so I set it for a higher temperature to keep the place somewhat comfortable through the heat wave. But before I left I noticed that it made “decisions” as to whether it should blow cold air or function as a dehumidifier. The place felt so comfortable and I had to check sometimes that it was running because it would lower the fan speed accordingly. All things said, I love this unit despite the fact that one of the main reasons I purchased this one is because of the remote access, functions flaky at best. I am away now and over the last 2 days I’ve only been able to access the unit twice, both times it timed out. I remotely accessed other devices in my home thinking it could be the internet, but everything else was fine and the internet up time was 9 days. The app will not tell you the current conditions in you home, just what the init is set for, if you can get it. Either way, a good “set it and forget it” machine that costs less than my 8000 btu to operate. Oh and FYI, I’ve seen other reviews for other units where people complain about the short hose that exhausts to the window. According to almost every manufacturer that I researched this about, it’s that length for a reason. Although you can buy longer hoses and add on extensions but it causes more resistance on the machines and will shorten the life span and void warranties. I do find, however, that this units hose is about a foot longer than the others I’ve had.
