Air Conditioning in a Compact, Eco-Friendly Design

Dual Hose Exhaust for Optimal Airflow and Efficiency

To cool your space efficiently, the ARC-14S draws warm air from both the inside and outside environment and converts it into cool, clean air. Warm, humid air is then expelled from the room through the exhaust hose. Similar to traditional window air conditioners, this dual system creates improved airflow and efficient cooling.

Three Operational Modes Include Fan and Dehumidifier

The unit offers three modes: cooling, dehumidifying, and fan. Cooling mode cools and dehumidifies the room. To dehumidify without cooling, choose the dehumidifying option. Fan mode circulates air in the room and offers four fan speeds to choose from.

The unit has a dehumidifying capacity of 101 pints per day and an adjustable digital thermostat range of 61 degrees F to 89 degrees F.

Non-Permanent, Easy-to-Install Venting Kit

The easy-install kit includes a window slide bar that fits in standard windows up to 36 inches wide. The slide bar adjusts vertically or horizontally. The kit also includes two extendable, 49-inch exhaust hoses and components for securing the hoses to the unit and the window slide bar fixtures.

The ARC-14S is designed for non-permanent venting through a window, though it can be custom modified to fit into wall openings or dropped ceilings.

Simple Control Panel and Convenient Remote

The control panel features an LCD display and simple selections, including a mode selection button, up/down temperature adjustments, and fan speed selection. Program the unit to activate or shut off at preset times with the 24-hour timer. An included remote control puts the full set of functions at your fingertips.

Washable Pre-Filter and Activated Carbon Filter

The included pre-filter and odor-neutralizing carbon filter help keep cooled air fresh and clean. To clean the pre-filter, simply remove it from the unit and rinse, tap off, or vacuum the accumulated dust. The carbon filter should be replaced every two to three months.

Outfitted with Auto-Restart and Safety Features

During power outages, the auto-restart function will automatically restart the unit at its previous setting. This unit is also supplied with a Leakage Current Detection and Interruption (LCDI) plug, which reduces the risk of fire due to arcing faults in the power supply cord.

What's in the Box

Whynter 14,000 Btu ARC-14S Portable Air Conditioner, two exhaust hoses, window venting kit, remote control, and user manual.

I am in a two bed open plan flat. I use this unit to cool the living/dining/kitchen area leaving the bedroom doors closed. I've had experience with two other (different brand) 'portable' units and the main complaint with those is they didn't cool the space and the water tray needed emptying all the time. If the tray was not emptied several times a day they would just shut off. I waited one full season before writing a review as I really wanted to see how well it works. It's a year later and I've just dragged it out of the closet and set it up again and its running beautifully. Running from 9am-8pm with the temp set to 68/70 I empty the tray once every 4-5 days. It has never once shout off on me and I have had ZERO trouble with it.

I made a few modifications given my previous experience with these units and would like to share them with you:

1. I added a filter to the INTAKE side. I bought a sheet of basic air filter (this is a washable DuPont carbon air filter). Often the reason units stop working is they become dirty in the bowels of the machine you just cant get to and a cheap filter goes a long way to extending the units life.

2. I REALLY made an effort with the window installation. The units I've had in the past came with a sticky on one side foam strip to bridge the inevitable gap which allows air through. My only complaint with this unit is that it did not come with one of these (why I subtracted one star). So what I did - and it worked brilliantly - was to use the foam packing that the unit came in. It came with two densities and worked perfectly using dble sided sticky tape and a Stanley knife on the top, bottom and sides.

3. My third tip is about emptying the water. Nothing comes with unit to help.

UPADTE 5/27/2014
It has been a few years since I purchased this unit and since Los Angeles has been experiencing a heat wave (95 to 110 degrees) I thought I would give an update.
This unit still sounds exactly the same no increase in noise level and it still performs the same no change after 2 years. As of today I am still happy with my purchase and I feel I have got my moneys worth I really didnt think it would last this long without any problems. Please read my first review and take all the steps to secure the hoses. I feel this step will insure that that unit will perform at its best. So far so good 2 years and counting!
UPDATE 7/2/2013
Ok this is the second summer I have had this unit and If you live in Los Angeles you know its been 95 to 105 degrees all week! Havent used this AC since last summer so this week we brought it out and hooked it up and it is still working flawlessly! No problems what so ever same sound level same cold output all the buttons still work and the hoses are still fine. So far for me this unit has been rock solid and I am still very happy with my purchase, if you intend on buying please read my original review below and spend a little time to hook it up correctly.


I bought this AC after doing some research and the reviews here.
My unit arrived in great condition and after reading some reviewers say the hose attachment did not stay on with the screws provided I went to the hardware store and bough 8 bolts, nuts and lock washers as well as a plastic filler plate to fill the gap that the vent didnt cover. Total price $8.98.

This has been a lifesaver during hot summer days. I agree with the negative reviews about it being noisy, but I have it in my bedroom and I got used to it after 2 nights. I sleep through it now. The LED is also very bright, but not so much that it keeps me awake. I took off a star because of the useless window mount. The hoses weren't long enough for it to reach my window, so I went to Home Depot to build a rig. Replacement hoses are EXPENSIVE, so I didn't buy them. The screws are very short and pop right out of the cheap plastic mount, so I'm using tape to hold them in place. I have since moved and now have casement windows, so I'm in the process of building a new mount in which I will screw the hoses directly into a piece of plexiglass which will sit in the window. I've read that this will work fine, so I'm not concerned about it. One of the negative reviews I read about this unit is that it failed to cool the space. It is designed to cool roughly 600 square feet (a small apartment) so it works fine for my place. I also use a fan to push the cool air into the other room. I like the look of the unit, as well as the fact that it can be a fan or a dehumidifier. I bought plastic tubing for the water collection tank, but it has yet to produce a single drop. The vent hose is doing its job.

I will be starting a home job soon, so I wanted a portable A/C unit so I can cool my home-office this summer. I didn't want to cool the whole house, I only want to cool the room I'm in. My windows slide horizontally, so a regular window A/C unit wouldn't work well for me. After alot of research, I decided to go with this model. I live in a 3 BR house (1,600 sq foot) by myself and I am always trying to find ways to save on my electricity bill. I hope this A/C unit will help with the savings.

The good:
It works. It keeps my office room cool.
It's portable. After working in my office, I can roll this out to the living room. My living room isn't too big, but it's open to the kitchen, so it does take some more time to cool the room.

The bad:
Minus half star for the window kit. The window kit does not fit my window. It's shorter than what I need. The screws would not stay on the circle brackets where the hoses are attached. That's why I used my own screws and bolts I bought from Home Depot. See notes below on how I made my own window kit. I also added pictures to show what I made.
Minus half star for the noise. It's loud. While I'm in the living room, I have to turn the volume up more than usual on my TV. It's just as loud as my regular window A/C in my bedroom. But that is to be expected so that's why I'm only taking half a star off.

Homemade Window Kit:
I went to Home Depot and had them cut a wood board to fit my window (6.5" x 46"). I bought some #6 screws (1 inch) with bolts and washers. I also bought weather stripping. I went to Harbor Freight and bought a cheap "Cut Out Tool". It's sort of like a rotary tool.

I used the original window kit to draw the circles on to the wood board and mark the screw holes.
