I have used this air conditioner in a room bigger than 10×15 feet and it still worked. It worked so good I needed to put my jacket on.

I??ve owned portable AC??s before. And I bought 2 nee units. This one and the
Whynter Elite ARC-122DS 12,000. This Black + Decker unit is terrible! First it was delivered and you??re suppose to let the unit set for 24+ hours to let the coolant settle, etc (per instructions). Being heavy, I moved it into the entry way with hard floor inside my door to let it set. When I went to inbox it and set it up, the whole box bottom was soaking wet and no longer a box bottom from complete liquid saturation. (The box lifts off the top of the unit and the bottom is separate. There??s a huge thick layer of styrofoam at the top and bottom of the unit between it and the cardboard box. But yet somehow, so much liquid leaked with it in upright position that it went around or through it to the bottom. This didn??t make me very confident that coolant was massively leaking without even opening or turning it on.
Second, I was sent the wrong pieces for the window kit. The 3 pieces are suppose to fit together (as shown in 2 different spots in the directions and matching the window width and height it accommodates if you use all
3 together. They are suppose to fit as shown with the exhaust hole at the bottom if you use them upright.). I was sent the wrong combination of inner and outer pieces for the panels to slide together. So the exhaust opening has to be in the middle-ish of the window and not the bottom,
Which also uses more hose length to reach the unit, limiting the little amount the unit can be moved.
Third, all of the connector pieces to the hose ends and unit (which is double my other unit because they made many small pieces to put together instead of fewer connector pieces) do not stay put and lock in place well. So many times when setting up, the pieces would I connect when I clicked something else in place and the pieces would fall apart.
Fourth, this unit is much louder than my other one. I installed it in our living room and I can??t imagine how loud we will have to turn the tv up to watch it while the AC is on. That??s gonna be an issue.
Fifth, the opening on top opens automatically, which is a nice feature, but opens so far that the air literally blows nearly straight up to the ceiling. I can adjust it moving it by hand to blow outward/forward more. However, manually moving pieces that are on electronic fu croons like that can sometimes mess up the electronic functioning. And there??s no way to open it manually completely. And also, closing it some so it doesn??t point to the ceiling, covers some of the fan/air, allowing less to blow out.
Now for the good…
1st, if you get the right pieces, (which I didn??t) the window kit is pretty good. It has foam dealers and all, which my other did not come with. However, I can??t speak to how easy they are to install or the effectiveness because I have not installed them yet, not knowing if I am going to keep the unit yet.
2nd, it came with a drain hose, my
Other did not. But in the skeem of things, a drain hose and foam strips to seal it better, cost very little. And I??d rather have to purchase them and have a better AC unit with no issues. Still, nice to have included.
3rd, it seems to have a powerful fan.
I already regret the purchase of this unit. And I??m about to buy a 3rd unit for the upstairs of my house. I will NOT be buying this one again OR any Black + Decker unit. I will stick with another of the other I purchased for sure!

Is there an energy save mode?
Does this use home 110 outlet?
I live in a very dry place is this not a good air conditioner for me then?
Answer: It is fine for dry areas – actually preferable. In areas of high humidity you may have to use the drainage system. In dry areas this is not necessary.
