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
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.
