The reason that I am researching air conditioners and particularly the Soleus Air KY-80 Portable Air Conditioner is that as a realtor, my customers are constantly asking me what they can do to cool their hot condos. In most of the buildings in our area, window air conditioners are not allowed. As we live in the Pacific North West central air conditioning is very rare and not usually found in any condo buildings. A solution to this problem is to use an air conditioner that has a hose to the outside.

Soleus Air KY-80 Portable Air Conditioner/Dehumidifier/Fan/ with Remote Control Like many other mobile air conditioners the Soleus Air KY-80 Portable Air Conditioner can be moved from area to area depending on need. With a little bit of ingenuity the hose can be fitted to any window space including patio doors.

In researching these machines we searched online and found that Amazon.com had the best deal for the Soleus Air KY-80 Portable Air Conditioner. At the time of this review it was being offered at a 15% savings with free shipping.

Assembly of the Soleus Air KY-80 Portable Air Conditioner

Soleus Air KY-80 Portable Air Conditioner/Dehumidifier/Fan/ with Remote Control The unit comes with a hose and the plastic plates that sit in the window. I have seen this unit used in a patio door where they used Styrofoam to block the large space. For more conventional windows the included material should be sufficient.

It is necessary to make arrangements for the water that isn’t evaporated out the exhaust hose. A one-gallon jug should work for this. Depending on how high the humidity is it may be necessary to empty the jug every 8 to 24 hours.
 
 
 

Use of the Soleus Air KY-80 Portable Air Conditioner

From the research that we have done and from the feedback from customers who own the Soleus Air KY-80 Portable Air Conditioner, it appears to be a very flexible, efficient way to cool a space. Most reviewers state that it cools a 150 square foot bedroom very nicely.
There are some complaints about noise. It does emit sound similar to running a fan. The inability to turn off the air conditioning once it reaches the desired temperature can be annoying once you have gone to sleep.

What Others Think of the Soleus Air KY-80 Portable Air Conditioner

On Amazon.com the Soleus Air KY-80 Portable Air Conditioner has a 4.1 out of 5 star rating. Here is a sample of some the reviewers’ comments:

“I’ve been using it 12-16 hours or more daily, now. Hasn’t failed yet. On truly humid days it pulls out a gallon of water every 3-4 hours. I really like the ease of adjusting the louvers: one set to direct up/down, the second for left-right. Lets me easily choose whether to cool my monitor or me. Still often just run the dehumidifier, but turn on the cooler when it really starts to heat up.”

“I have seen reviews where people said it was noisy. It is not any noisier than any other A/C window unit, actually I would say it was quieter than most window units. I have this unit approx. 2 ft. from the foot of my bed and I have no trouble sleeping.”

“I have a front door and about 35 feet away is a sliding glass door. Temperatures here got to almost 100 degrees and my apartment is old with no insulation to speak of and is an upstairs unit. I have been able to keep my large (15 X 35) living area under 80 degrees on the hottest days and very comfortable on lower settings the rest of the time. This unit has been a life saver for me and I wish I had bought one sooner.”
