Pompanetter air conditioners. Anyone familiar with them???

Local dealer has a boat show deal on Pompanette air conditioners but I know nothing about them. I know the company mainly to supply fighting chairs, Bowmar hatch parts and such.

Anyone have one? Opinions?

Thanks

Re: Pompanetter air conditioners. Anyone familiar with them???

WE had one of Pompanette's 10K btu rev. cycle units in our salon.
It lasted about 7 years and was a decent unit, quiet and had a decent remote control.
I felt that it failed a bit early as the cruise-air that it replaced was more than 12 years old when it died, but it was much less expensive.
BTW, we did replace the Pompanette unit with one from West _ BIG MISTAKE ! It was terribly noisy, not the compressor, but ,the fan. Finally pulled it out, returned it to West and went to Mermaid, now have Mermaid units in both salon and stateroom -- nice people.

Thanks for the info. I agree that seven years isn't a very long life for something that costs a couple thousand dollars.

So how do you like the Mermaids so far? Are they quiet?
