Admittedly, the LG 11000 BTU portable air conditioner reviews that have circulated about this product have not all had been favorable. While this is rather unusual for LG products, this review will take a closer look at the product to see if indeed many of the other reviews have a point.
LG Electronics LP1111WXR 11,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner with Remote Control – White
There are certainly a number of reasons why this particular LG unit has garnered some praise amid the criticism. The following are some of the noted advantages that this unit brings when using it to cool down a room in your house.
Dehumidifier: The particular function mixes the cooler, dry air with the warmer, more humid air to keep you more comfortable. One of the basic issues with air conditioners is that they can leave the air too dry and uncomfortable to breathe, especially for those with colds or sinus symptoms that need more humidity in the air.
Energy Saver Mode: Another great aspect of this particular product is that it provides an energy saving mode in addition to the 3 cooling speeds and 3 fan speeds as well. This means that you can program the device to operate in a manner that does not drive up your energy costs as rapidly as the normal settings.
Intuitive Control Panel: The controls on the device and the remote are easy and very intuitive to use so that you can program this device to do what you need. Basically, you just plug it in, turn it on and set the temperature you want and let it go. For those who don’t like a lot of confusing features or settings, this is the perfect portable air conditioner for you.
Despite all of these advantages, the unit does have a tendency to shut down because the internal tank which is used for the dehumidifying function is too full even if it has no water inside.
There is obviously a sensor issue with this device as well as a rather clumsy exhaust vent that is connected to the hose which if it disconnects cannot be reconnected and must be replaced at a rather high $100 price tag.
While it is not really fair for any product to be judged only by the reviews it receives, it is true that in some cases a product is simply not as effective as it should be for the price.
Overall, when it works this particular LG unit is quite powerful for its size and will cool down a medium size room. However, many of the LG 11000 BTU portable air conditioner reviews about the negative aspects of this unit appear to be true as well, so purchase with caution.
