Third floor walk up, evenings were unbearable! The portable ac needs to be placed near a window for venting, there is a hose and a screenblock that are very simple to set up. The xyz is on wheels, so you can easily move it from room to room for your comfort! Love love love the xyz! Clears out a heated room in a short time, while you’re changing from work and getting dinner ready you will be able to enjoy your home in relative coolness. Moved easily to the bedroom so you can be rested for the next day. Xyz is a little top heavy, slimness of design was the winner over completely stability, so move it slowly, not insurmountable, just a bit inconvenient. Also- do remember to empty the reservior before bed so you aren’t women by the “full” alarm at an inconvenient time. Xyz runs just as well as ever with virtually no maintenance and a move to a house with central ac. He doesn’t get used as often, but is still a steady little workhorse!
