We should really have gone with a split type air conditioning unit with an inverter.
But the problem is we already had a hole in the wall from the old unit. I’m sure we can put the unit to use if we ever do decide to upgrade this unit though later. Huge difference moving from 3/4 hp to 1.5hp.
Cools the room in less than a minute and at night pretty much switch it off as any heat retained during the day seems to disappear once this thing has been on for a short period of time.
Only issue was although measuring the size of the hole it was still around 1” difference in size on the top and side. 11pm and a bit of adjusting going on as we had already taken the old unit out so committed to getting the new air condition unit in!
