  • Product Overview

    Cool your space quickly and efficiently with the American Comfort ACW500 Series Portable Air Conditioners. The American Comfort ACW500C Portable Air Conditioner delivers 13,000 BTUs of cooling power per hour and the American Comfort ACW500CH model distributes 12,000 BTUs of heat per hour. In addition to strong cooling power, this sleek and compact portable air conditioner features a reusable pre-filter for trapping large particles and an activated carbon filter for eliminating odors. The air cooler also features three fan speeds and thermostatic control between 60 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The ACW500 Series portable ACs are suitable for medium- to large-size areas up to 450 square feet.

    Self-Draining System

    This American Comfort portable AC features exceptional self-draining capabilities for true —Sset it and forget it— operation. With the innovative AutoDrain technology, you’ll hardly ever have to empty the drain bucket, making this unit a completely hassle-free alternative to standard portable ACs.

    Unlike other portable air conditioners, which require you to drain condensed water by manually emptying a water bucket, the American Comfort ACW500C Portable AC automatically drains water using an atomizer that transforms the water into a fine mist. This mist is released from the unit along with its hot air exhaust. Additionally, for energy-efficient cooling, some of the condensed water is used to keep the portable air conditioner’s internal components cool.

    Product Benefits

    • Window Kit: This air cooler allows you to exhaust air out of a room window using the exhaust hose, adjustable slide bar, and side bar connector.

    • Adjustable Louvers: Direct the airflow where you need it most with this portable cooler’s adjustable louvers.

    • Programmable Timer: This compact portable air conditioner is equipped with a 24-hour programmable timer.  

    • Easily Transportable: These American Comfort portable air conditioners include four caster wheels and convenient carry handles for easy mobility.

    • Time Delay: The American Comfort ACW500C Portable Air Conditioner will start up three minutes after the power is turned on to prolong the life of the compressor. 

    • Auto Shut-Off: When the water tank is full, the portable air conditioner will automatically shut off and resume operation once the reservoir is emptied and properly replaced.

    Digital Display Screen

    The American Comfort ACW500CH Portable Air Conditioner is equipped with a remote control and a user-friendly electronic control panel for easy operation. The handheld remote allows you to control the fan, temperature, timer, and sleep settings from a distance. The control panel features soft-touch buttons and an LED display screen.

    The electronic display window shows the current room temperature while corresponding LED icons accompany each operating mode and programmed setting. Additionally, when the water bucket is full, a red warning light will illuminate and the compressor will automatically shut off the air cooler until the water is drained.

    Multi-Purpose Air Conditioner

    The American Comfort ACW500 Series Portable Air Conditioners offer multiple operating modes and three-speed fans for maximum comfort. As a portable room air conditioner, the ACW500C produces 13,000 BTUs of direct cool air. While hot air is blown out of the back of the portable air cooler, the fan provides a constant supply of fresh, cool air through the front air grille.

    In addition to cooling your immediate area, this 13,000-BTU portable air conditioner also helps to control the humidity in your space. When used as a room dehumidifier, the portable AC removes up to 66 pints of excess moisture from the air.

    The American Comfort ACW500CH Portable Air Conditioner eliminates large particles visible to the human eye using a pre-filter. This washable air filter traps common airborne allergens such as dust, pet dander, mold spores, and pollen. Additionally, a filter treated with activated carbon helps to remove foul odors.
