ARC-14S Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner At a Glance:
- 14,000 BTUs cooling capacity
- Eco-conscious air conditioner, fan, and dehumidifier in one

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.
The easy-install kit includes a window slide bar that fits in standard windows up to 48 inches (121 cm) 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 environmentally conscious ARC-14S is CFC free and designed for minimal energy consumption. This efficient air conditioner uses ozone-safe R-410A refrigerant and lead-free, RoHS-compliant components.
Simple Control Panel
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.

From previous research, I did know that these units do have a vibration problem with the body which may cause them to sound louder than they actually are and this was the case with the unit I received. A quick fix for this is to tape both sides of the unit on the lower bottom with tension (pull the tape tight) so as to tighten the body. The difference is clearly audible without the vibration from the body.
Overall it's a solid piece of equipment.
The portability of this unit is a big bonus. It was easy to pack away now that temperatures have cooled, and doesn't take up a lot of storage space.
If the fan is on high it can be a bit noisy but it's the kind of noise that sinks into the background and doesn't really bother me. Especially when I consider the payoff - a nice, cool house. Highly recommended.
1: it is LOUD. This is more of a inherent flaw of portable AC units than something unique to this machine, but the volume this machine makes was advertised as quiet for a portable unit. This simply isn't the case. When the compressor is running it sounds like a jumbo jet is landing in my apartment. If you're going to buy this you might as well include a box of earplugs with your order.
2: The digital thermostat, although an appreciated feature, isn't quite accurate. It tends to over estimate the temperature by about 3 degrees. To cool my apartment to 22 degrees I have to set it to 25. This isn't a big problem, however if you're the type who likes accuracy it may be a minor bother. I suppose this has to do with the limitations of the thermostat being located within the machine.
Installation was relatively straightforward. To mount it to a window you will need to use some tape. I recommend using gaffer tape (available on amazon) because using duct tape will leave a horrible residue on your window pane and will be impossible to deal with when you need to uninstall the machine.
It is reasonably low maintenance if you live in a low humidity area. You do need to clean the air filter every few weeks. I have never needed to drain the condensate tank, although the plug is located in an impossibly inconvenient place (at the very bottom and back of the machine). If you live in a very humid place you may have to buy a condensate pump and some hose (also available on amazon), as I cannot imagine tolerating the hassle of routinely accessing that inconveniently placed drain.
I'm generally satisfied with the purchase and I would recommend this machine to someone who needs to buy a no-frills portable AC unit. However if at all possible get a window-mounted one as they are quieter and take up less space.
Even when it did work we only used it for about and hour or two to cool down the bedroom before going to bed, but it was to loud to get a good nights sleep (had it around 60-80dB) so we would turn it off prior to sleeping.
Cooled a small room great but our living room wasn't really a match for this piece of garbage. Needless to say, after it broke down and after the horrible customer service experience I received from Whynter, I was able to return it to Amazon without any issues oe extra expenses. Only good that came out of me buying this was seeing how awesome Amazon is at customer service.
