Thank you for making this video and sharing this AC with us. My husband just gave it to me (us) for Christmas. :-) The lack of AC noise is such a wonderful gift! Thanks again for introducing this AC to us.

Mike and Jennifer, Great video on the Houghton AC and install by Advanced RV. We are full-timers in a Class C motorhome and had the Houghton AC installed about two years ago to reduce the loud noise from our existing AC, which made sleeping and even conversing in the motorhome difficult. The Houghton has performed flawlessly, and in addition to being very, very quiet, it is efficient using about 950 watts, has a built-in soft start, and the remote is handy to change the temperature at night without having to get up. Cleaning the filter is a breeze! The team Advanced RV did a great job on our install, and Mitchell was a true professional. Keep up the excellent work!

Maybe I will see about getting one of these when my WRTB delivers...December 2022. Maybe LTV will offer the upgrade by then. And the auto levelers on the Wonder.

Hi Mike & Jen, Exactly what model of Houghton AC unit did you have installed? There’s online pricing all over the map that is sometimes lower than $2500. Thanks!

Mini splits are a 3rd of the cost and quiet also.

The only other way to get that quiet is to install a mini-split. It's less expensive but a lot more DIY. I have several You tube channels put them in.

What happened to your perfectly good old days scene unit, do they give you a credit or do you get to keep it for resale? Is this a 12-volt unit you can run off your batteries or do you still need a generator or Shore power?

Wow, that is quite. We just returned from 13 days in the Smoky Mountains. Thankfully, we only ran our AC on 2 days for about an hour each day to cool it down after being closed up while we were sightseeing. It works great, but when it quits working, I'll definitely be calling the company for an installation reservation. Thanks for sharing this information.

When we got the Houghton installed, we ran the loud ac unit during the night. It helped drown out the trains. They are crazy! We love our Houghton and any time anyone mentions how loud their Ac is, we recommend Advanced RV and the Houghton. They took good care of us and our dogs while we waited.

$3500 seems like a lot of money to replace a perfectly good AC with a quieter unit. Are the BTU's equivalent? From what I can tell Hougton AC's come from Australia which I am sure is fine but I wonder how the parts and service situation is for them in the U.S.? Had this been available as an upgrade from LTV I wonder what the price adder would be? I wonder why LTV doesn't offer the Hougton AC as an option? A quieter AC is better although for people like me when it comes to sleeping I like the white sound the AC gives off. I cannot sleep if it is dead silent so I would not want it to be too quiet.
