Customer Q & A

Q1: I purchased a PAC AN120HPE and need a drain hose and I don't know where to find the right one can you help?

A: I've looked but can't seem to find the specific size on that drain outlet, on the back of the machine. So, the easiest and cheapest way to a hose for it would be to remove the small cap that covers the drain outlet, and take it to your local hardware store. A local hardware as well as your big box home improvement stores, should have hose available that you can purchase by the foot or in pre-cut lengths. Take the drain cap though, that way you can get a good idea of the size you need. You should be able to show that to any associate, and they can measure it to get a good idea of a hose that will fit snugly. You can also pick up a small hose clamp, opt for the kind that can be pinched open with a pair of pliers, as opposed to the kind that requires a screwdriver to tighten. Slide the small clamp onto the hose, and once the hose is attached to the AC, slide the clamp over where the hose actually slides over the drain outlet to ensure a tight seal that shouldn't leak. As for a total cost, depending on the length of hose you get it can vary, but in general, you shouldn't spend more than $10-12 for the piece of hose & clamp. Hope that helps!

DeLonghi PAC-A120E Portable Air Conditioner

As a mainstay in the DeLonghi line of portable air conditioners, the PAC A120E provides cooling comfort quickly and effectively. Comparable to many other portable air conditioner models, the PAC A120E has an array of digital features and a cooling capacity of 12,000 BTU's. After examining the digital features we set the unit up in our test space to see if the originator of portable air conditioners would continue to keep pace with the ever expanding competition.

*As a note, do not worry if the unit will not immediately restart after the compressor shuts off. It has a safety feature that keeps the compressor from restarting for three minutes after the unit shuts down.*

What I like about the DeLonghi PAC A120E

The cooling power is ideal for most rooms. At 12,000 BTU's, the DeLonghi A1210E delivers the cooling power to reduce the temperature and humidity level in a 15' x 15' room quickly. With a starting temperature of 79 F and a relative humidity (RH) of 59%, the A120E reduced the temperature to our set point of 72 and dropped the RH 3% in right around 35 minutes. This type of cooling is in line with other 12,000 BTU portable air conditioner models. After this initial test, we turned the unit off, opened the doors and windows and allowed the temperature and relative humidity to climb in the test room throughout the day. By late afternoon we had a RH of 63%. After closing the room back up we ran the PAC A120E on the Dehumidifier mode and was able to reduce the humidity to our set point of 55% in 43 minutes. Regardless of running the unit as an air conditioner or as a dehumidifier, this DeLonghi portable air conditioner met our expectations.

The PAC-A120E has the variety of the staple features of the Pinguino line. The control panel is easy to use while the LCD display is fairly self explanatory. The timer works correctly, and the thermostat can be set within a standard cooling range, and can be set to either Fahrenheit or Centigrade. The Sleep functionality was interesting. Unlike the timer function, where the unit runs at set parameters for a defined length of time, Sleep Mode keeps your current settings for the first hour then gradually allows the temperature to increase by 6 F over the course of 2 hours. This keeps the room comfortably cool while reducing operation and energy costs while you sleep. The Boost mode is also common among the Pinguino portable air conditioners. Basically what this did was run the unit on high with a low set point to cool the room as quickly as possible.

The DeLonghi PAC A120E is smartly designed. In addition to the features listed above, it also will help diagnose problems you may have. There are a couple of basic codes that will let you know why the unit has stopped working. These can range from having a full internal condensate tank (a hose is provided to drain it) or the temperature is low enough that if the unit continues operating the cools will freeze. This single hose portable air conditioner also has SMART function where it will determine, based on conditions inside the room, whether to operate as a fan only or as and air conditioner and adjust the fan speed accordingly.

This may seem small, but it is a nice little addition for an appliance that is physically connected to a window or wall, like a portable air conditioner - locking casters. These air conditioners are heavy but can still move, so being able to lock the casters to help hold the unit in place is a small, but convenient feature

What I do not like about the DeLonghi PAC A120E

Like most other portable air conditioner models, this unit may need to have the internal condensate tank drained under more humid conditions. You can either place a shallow basin near the drain point or attach a small hose (not included). In some cases you may be able to lessen the hassle if the unit can be set up to where gravity allows the condensate to drain through a hose into an existing drain/drain line or into an external bucket of some sort. While the condensate that accumulates is not potable water, it can be used elsewhere.

Other than this, my complaints were few. All portable air conditioners could be packed more securely, and the DeLonghi is no exception.

In all, the DeLonghi PAC A120E is a well designed and very easy to use portable air conditioner. The price point and cooling ability is in line with comparable 12,000 BTU portable air conditioners. Faults were few, and the unit performed well whether cooling or dehumidifying a room.
