Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Whynter 14,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner (ARC-14S). The BoolPool rating for this product is Good, with 3.80 stars, and the price range is $452.99-$518.00.

Satisfied consumers had large spaces to cool with a portable AC. Out of the reviews, the largest room this Whynter unit cooled was around 700 square feet. Due to its portability, consumers with non-standard issues and unconventional spaces agreed this Whynter unit is a good alternative solution to window ACs. Furthermore, consumers were also impressed with programmable functions like setting a timer. Users can be strategic and efficient with their energy consumption.

Users will need to be strategic with how they use the Whynter unit, as many noted that this unit consumes a lot of energy. Most complaints noted their electric bills skyrocketed atop a large price for purchase. There were also performance concerns in humid environments as it increased the amount of water exhaust leading to increased maintenance.

The Whynter 14,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner (ARC-14S) is a powerful unit that can cool large and open spaces. However, this comes at a cost in energy consumption. The timer settings should help the consumer manage their utility bill.

First, for those of you trying to figure out if this thing will cool your apartment, we're using it to cool a 700 square feet open one bedroom condo with big west facing windows (in Seattle, so dry 85-90 degree days).

My first choice was to go with a window unit however, our hurricane windows don't open enough to accommodate a window unit.
