Our comprehensive testing revealed the Whynter 14,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner (ARC-14S) as highest in rating. The ARC-14S is free of environmentally hazardous CFC gas, and it is designed for low energy consumption. It ranks high in energy efficiency, uses nonhazardous R-410A refrigerant, and contains RoHS, lead-free compliant components.
This Whynter model has sturdy, built-in multi-direction casters, and this allows you to move the ac around without any dangerous or cumbersome lifting or carrying. The compact size of 36 by 19 by 16 inches makes it as easy as possible to move around as well.
The automatic drain technology pulls moisture from the air, recycles it, and produces clean, cool air. The unit is appropriate for everyday use thanks to the continuous elimination of excess condensation.
Warm air is drawn from outside and inside, and the ARC-14S converts it to the appropriate temperature. Humid, warm air is expelled through the flexible exhaust hose. This efficient dual system creates better air flow and efficient cooling similar to conventional window air conditioner units.
This ac has three modes, including cool, dehumidify, and fan. The cooling mode dehumidifies and maintains the temperature, but it can be set to control room humidity without any additional cooling. The fan setting circulates room air, and you can choose between four fan speeds.
The generous dehumidifying capacity is combined with a temperature control range that allows you to maintain room temperatures anywhere from 61 degrees to 89 degrees Fahrenheit.
The installation kit includes a slide bar compatible with standard windows up to thirty-six inches wide, and the window slide bar adjusts horizontally or vertically. Two 49-inch, expandable exhaust hoses with securing components round out the kit.
This room conditioner can be modified to be used as a permanent cooling fixture. The LCD display is straightforward, and the unit can be programmed as needed with its 24-hour timer. The accompanying remote control makes it easy in terms of adjusting the settings.
Important safety features will detect leaking current or current interruption. The automatic restart function will restart the unit after power outages, keeping you cool and comfortable at your desired setting.
