TOSOT Portable Air Conditioner 12,000 BTU

TOSOT Portable Air Conditioner 12,000 BTU

For those that care about efficiency, these are terribly inefficient.

Note the spec:

  • BTU performance (Cooling) ASHRAE: 12,000BTU
  • BTU performance (Cooling) U.S. DOE: 8,000BTU

That means you will be getting the performance of a 8,000 BTU AC with the energy consumption equivalent of a 12,000 BTU AC. That’s because this expels hot air out the window, replacing it with hot/humid air drawn in through cracks around your windows/doors/vents.

Not good folks.

Find one that is “two duct” version where it draws air in through the same window it expels waste from.

16 days after it was purchased, it’s still Preparing for Shipment.

This thing takes a lot or prep time, apparently.

Hi there. Sorry for the delay. I see CS is working with the vendor to see what happened - lost shipments or bad tracking.

I added your name to the list in the ticket.


16 days to ship. Never shipped. Generated 3 tracking numbers. Cancelled order, tosot was listing it for same price in their website. Sain is the seller. Saves time and got in 1 day a bestbuy model for $319 in same 12000 btu. Works fine and did not have to wait 2 weeks to have to cancel. 2nd woot purchase, won’t be a third.

I had 3 tracking numbers. The lost shipment is kinda hard. The unit weighs 84 lbs. The vendor sells on their website for the same price. This was a dud sale. Amazon also had for $ for the same price as tosot. Disappointed in Woot. Definitely nothing special. I asked about canceling. So it was cancelled. But there where 3 tracking numbers generated. All waiting for pickup.

20 days after order and still preparing for shipment! I think I should cancel the order, summer will be over soon.

Can’t comment on the product as it never shipped but 10/10 customer service. I asked for a refund and they immediately granted it. Sucks I didn’t get my product but Woot did what they could to make it right.
