Finally a 96* day to give this new little AC a workout. It kept my room at 80* (The temp I set it to) Just fine. I keep my room at 80* mostly to save power. I always run the fan in low mode (to reduce noise) The compressor was running about 60% of the time. I used about 1.8kwh running the AC in my room for 4 hours. I have gone out of my way to reduce the load on the AC unit, foam board in the window, with a reflective film stuck on the glass, wrapped tshirts around the vend pipe. I put LOTS of weathe rstripping around the vent slat. I wish this AC was more scilent, a regular in-window unit is much more quiet, but in applications where you cant have an AC sticing out the window, this is your only choice. For the price I am extremly happy with this AC unit, I gave it a workout and it took it like a champ!
