Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Heater shuts off and blows cold air

Lfowler 1/13/2024

Heater shuts off and blows cold air for a few minutes and then comes back on. Sometimes it cycles heat and the fan. Its almost like the thermostat or something is malfunctioning. Very disappointing its like 10 degrees and were freezing Other than that its a great unit

Great unit for homes

Johno8 10/1/2023

We purchased the unit 5 months ago. Exact replacement for what was there. 3 weeks ago th fn motor quit. Called customer service and reported it. Do to the small portable building being on business property that warranty was void. So for now we are going to swap the fan motor from old unit to he new one. Compressor was bad everything else worked

Great Unit for a Great Price

Glimfeather 8/7/2023

The unit was really easy to install. Instructions were straight forward and made it easy to get up and running in no time. Doing pretty well against the Texas heat.

DISAPPOINTED

MAPIAS 1/10/2023

I purchased this item November 29 2022 arrived December 7 2022 and had it installed. On December 23 2022 I called about it rapid recycling ...runs less than a minute stops less than a minute countinously I was told that the coils were frozen and needed to put an outside cover on it to thaw them. Jake told me that it would be fine to run it with this cover on it. Thankfully I am well aware that this was NOT GOOD ADVICE Later a woman called to tell me not to run it with the cover on. However she said that I should cover it for 24 hours to let the coils thaw and then try it again. She also said she would call back in a couple of days to check with me--SHE DID NOT I STILL HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM AND AND JUST DONT HAVE THE ENERGY TO CALL BACK Im a senior citizen and live in a 400 sq ft condo...this is my ONLY source of heat and cooling

Room with a breeze

Itsalwaysshauny 10/14/2022

I bought this in 2021 had it installed but unfortunately the hurricane took it out. I didnt buy the extended warranty the first time but did this time so fingers crossed Its a little noisy but overall I was very happy with it I bought a replacement the other day I certainly hope I get more than a year out if this one. I would recommend it for sure

Works great perfect fit.

PapaNorm C 10/4/2022

The unit came with a large dent in the outside shell but I was able to get it straightened out satisfactorily and it doesnt appear to affect any operations. The shell fit the wall opening that the old unit was in perfectly making installation a breeze. Everything is working great. Quiet operation and the remote are real upgrades from the old unit of a different brand. I am highly satisfied.
