The Haier CPRB08XCJ air conditioner is quite a spacey looking device and due to the silver color, it actually adds a contemporary look to the room its being used in. This unit has a cooling capacity of 8,000 BTU and will cool a room up to 200 square feet in size. It also has the added benefit of a dehumidification feature which helps to dry the air as well.
The CPRB08XCJ has all of the features you would expect of an air conditioner in the size range. However, the manufacturer has gone one step further in terms of the environment. It uses an R-410A refrigerant that will not emit any ozone, and in fact can help towards its depletion. It’s also been constructed without the use of lead or mercury which makes it one of the more eco friendly units on the market.
This model includes a complete window kit for ease of operation, and when used as a dehumidifier the consumer can make use of the auto evaporative feature which means continuous use without the need to empty a bucket.
What We Liked
- Ease of Use
Equipped with remote control, full rotational casters and complete window kit, the CPRB08XCJ could not be easier to install and use.
Constructed without the use of lead or mercury and fitted with an R-410A refrigerant, this air conditioner is one of the most environmentally friendly on the market.
- Quiet Operation
Designed for ultra quiet operation, this model is perfect for the bedroom or other rooms where additional noise can be an issue.
- Auto Evaporation
This model comes with a complete kit for auto evaporation which eliminates the need to constantly empty of bucket whilst is being used as a dehumidifier.
What We Didn't Like
- Single Hose
The CPRB08XCJ is only a single hose unit and this has produced some issues with its ability to cool the air adequately. However, for dehumidification of the air, it works very well.
This unit can be moved from room to room. However, consumers have complained this isn’t the easiest of jobs because of the window kit and the hose attachment.
Haier have tried very hard with the CPRB08XCJ. It looks good, is more eco-friendly than other models on the market. However, it is advertised primarily as an air conditioner with dehumidification abilities. There have been mixed reviews on its ability to adequately cool the air in the room size recommended but, the dehumidifier option works incredibly well. Considering you can pay the same amount of money for other units that don’t have both options, this isn’t a bad buy.Review by AirReflect ©
