Costco sells this De’Longhi 4 in 1 Portable Air Conditioner for $369.99 on sale! Scroll down for photos. If you missed the sale, the regular price is $469.99. It’s got the 4 in 1 feature of being an Air Conditioner, Heater, Dehumidifier, and Fan Only option. With summer right around the corner, this is a great item to have if you don’t have central A/C. During those really warm days you can keep your living room nice & cool. At night, move it into your bedroom to give a quick blast of cool air. It’s a compact unit for being about to cool down approximately 500 square feet. I may upgrade (I own a swamp cooler) to one of these units even though I only need it 4-5 days a year.

Costco De’Longhi Pinguino 4-in-1: Portable Air Conditioner, Heater, Dehumidifier, and Fan
Before I got the swamp cooler, I would have immediately paid $400 to have this A/C unit. I know this because I went to Costco that week looking for these portable air conditioners. They were all sold out because it was July. My only recommendation is to get it now if you’re thinking about it. You don’t want to wait. You can also grab the HiSense Window Air Conditioner too, which is a little smaller, but also works great. They currently sell these on Costco.com & the reviews are 4.1/5 with about 70 reviews. The biggest complaint was a short exhaust hose, so keep that in mind. If you can’t find this at Costco or on Costco.com , make sure to check out these other HIGHLY RATED portable air conditioners……..

Has anyone had to have warranty service on this DeLonghi portable AC unit? It is supposed to have a 3 year warranty.
I have not. Are you having trouble with your unit?
Guess I expected better cooling when it’s marketed for up to a 500 sq ft room.
Everything else about it is fine.
I’m pleased that it works in hot & humid days 😉
That’s a fair assessment. 500 square feet would be nice since that is a pretty big room. Glad everything else is up to par. Thanks for stopping by & leaving a comment
I need up going with the 10,000 BTU unit that Costco was selling great product but I would buy a different hose from Amazon. It cools the room in no time.
Thanks for the comment T Jones. Great for people who need to cool larger areas. The 10,000 BTU should help significantly more than the 7,200 BTU air conditioner.
There is NO Quiet Mode, either on the unit or the remote and None listed in the manual or the outside box itself!
It does have a timer!
The Eco Reel Feel automatic mode [via remote Only!] doesn’t work that well.
It stays in the orange color [not optimal condition] for a long time though sometimes switches to the green color [better/decent condition]. The blue color [best condition] never shows!
Using in New England known for its heat and humidity, temps in 80s-90s. It takes awhile to cool down a room that’s up to 15’x15′.
Thanks for the heads up about quiet mode. I’ll have to update my post. Thanks for the real review about this product. I would think it would have worked a little better for a 15 x 15 foot room. That’s only 225 square feet, which is less than half of it’s capability. Appreciate you stopping by to let us know.
Hot and humid days in June/July in New England, normally last about ~3~4 weeks a year.
Remeasured room so it’s 15×17 so 255 square ft.
The AC is OK and kept on Max Eco mode. Have to empty out the 10 quart plastic bucket from the water tube discharge every ~3~5 hrs but at least it’s working.
For a 7,500 BTU AC, it takes awhile to cool down the living room.
Be careful with the electricity. If you live in an Older house or condo, the lights may briefly flash when you turn the unit on and then it kicks into max mode a few minutes later. Electricity bill is slightly higher whenever the AC is used so not that much savings despite the Eco Mode function.
One thing missing is a Quiet mode as the AC is noisy when on high/max Eco mode though relatively quieter on low/medium mode.
The remote is handy but different than what is shown in other reviews. The controls run horizontal (across) not vertical (top to bottom)… power, mode, decrease/increase, speed (low/med/high) and timer.
It’s still relatively new so parts are currently not available per discussion with customer service. May also be related to the factories that are backlogged due to the CoV shutdown. Factories have started to come back but it’ll take awhile for any parts to be available (i.e. spare a/c exhaust tubing).
Only saw a small handful of units still available at the Nashua NH store while stores in MA are sold out.
It’s a nice portable AC unit but wished it was more powerful as advertised to cool down a room while being energy efficient considering it’s rated for cooling up to a 500 square foot room.
Thanks a lot for the update Michael. Sounds like you’re not 100% pleased with it but it seems to be sufficient for your use. You’re right about the parts. It seems that way with almost all products right now. Costco is known for selling “similar” products while removing some features. This is what makes them branded to Costco. Unfortunately, they sometimes cut out features people would really like to see. Glad that this unit works out for you & thanks for stopping by & giving us an update. Helps everyone before spending almost $400!
Thanks for posting these updates on your air conditioner. How is it holding up as the weather gets warmer?
Decent portable AC.
Got one before the heat wave came as it sold out quickly.
Unfortunately, it’s NOT found on the Delonghi website so may be a ‘special’ model made ONLY for Costco!
It’s also Not available on Costco’s website as well, Code 1491242.
That makes finding replacement parts a bit more difficult.
Unfortunately, the flimsy manual does Not contain any part numbers, only the separate part description names!
Will have to call up Delonghi to get the part number and replacement costs.
Yes. Costco does this with a lot of products. I’ve bought electronics (specifically routers) that were Costco branded. Sometimes it backfires because the manufacturer doesn’t update them (software or firmware) very often or has minimal support. Hopefully you will be able to fid the parts you need or get a part number. Let me know how it works out
