  • Product Overview

    The Soleus Air LX-140BL Portable Air Conditioner and Heater is a truly versatile AC that features 4 distinct operating modes—cooling, heating, dehumidifying, and fan-only. Thanks to 3 ample fan speeds, warm or cool air is effortlessly distributed throughout your environment for maximum comfort. One of the most powerful portable ACs around, the Soleus LX-140 also includes multiple user-friendly enhancements such as a multi-color vacuum fluorescent display (VFD), convenient 24-hour programmable timer, and remote control.


    Multifunctional Design

    The Soleus Air LX-140BL portable AC was developed to effectively and efficiently meet multiple air treatment needs with just 1 device.

    • Cool: The LX-140 portable air conditioner delivers 14,000 BTUs of cooling power to rooms sized 400-500 square feet.
    • Heat: This Soleus air conditioner has an 14,200 BTU heating capacity that is perfect for chilly winter nights.
    • Dehumidify: This mode removes up to 60 pints of excess moisture from your home each day.
    • Fan-Only: This mode is great for comfortable days when you just want a simple, cool breeze to circulate fresh air throughout your area.
    • Auto: This feature automatically chooses the correct mode based on your room temperature. For example, if the temperature is below 68 degrees F, the Heating mode will run. If the room temperature is above 80 degrees F, the Cooling mode will be activated.
    • Sleep: Sleep mode will run at a low, quiet fan speed and automatically adjust the thermostat to help you rest comfortably throughout the night.

    Versatile Operation

    This room air conditioner comes with 2 ventilation options. The single-hose option is perfect for quick spot cooling. However, if you desire more thorough cooling or heating of your area, then dual-hose ventilation is a great solution.

    Along with these 2 ventilation options, this Soleus AC also uses self-evaporating technology. During the cooling process, excess water is pulled from your indoor air. Air conditioners that use self-evaporative technology recycle this water and use it to the cool the compressor. This helps your portable air conditioner operate more efficiently and saves you the hassle of constantly dumping a water collection tank.

    Additional Features

    • Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD): Unlike a traditional LED display, a VFD display generates its own light and lends more contrast to colors, which makes it easier to read in direct sunlight.
    • 24-Hour Programmable Timer: “Set-it-and-forget-it” freedom is achieved since you only have to program it once. Set the air conditioner to your perfect temperature and program it to automatically turn on and off at specific times up to 24 hours in advance.
    • Auto Restart: If your power is interrupted, your settings will be automatically restored once power resumes thanks to this feature.
    • Washable Air Filter: An air filter purifies your air of allergens and bacteria that can infect your indoor environment. The washable filter also saves you money on replacement filters.
    • Remote Control: Conveniently change this AC’s settings from a distance with the fully-functional remote control.
    • 3 Fan Speeds: The fan has 3 speeds—low, medium, high— so cool or warm air can be distributed throughout your room.

    Summary

    The Soleus LX-140 Portable Air Conditioner and Heater is a powerful, affordable portable AC option that offers several operating modes and efficient dual-hose operation.

    What Customers Love

    • 4-in-1 Unit: Create your ideal indoor environment using Cool, Dry, Heat, and Fan-only modes. 
    • Auto and Sleep Modes: These additional features are energy-efficient and convenient.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Is the venting hose included with this model?

    This is a dual-hose system, and both hoses are included. For a list of everything you'll receive with purchase, check out our "What's in the Box?" heading on the "Manufacturer Info" tab.

    The general info for this unit says it can be used in 1- or 2-hose mode. We only have room for one hole through the wall. Will this hinder the operation of the unit and, if not, how do we close off the other vent?

    Running this model as a single-hose portable AC will not hinder operation; it's really just a matter of preference/availability. The second vent can be covered with the provided exhaust intake cover. Both installation types are explained in the owner's manual.

    I took out the back filter to clean, upon reinstalling the filter hit an obstruction, I was able to fish it out, it appears to be a sensor of some sort and the backing on the unit will not allow me to reattach. Can you assist?

    Would this be a good unit to cool down a computer/server room?

    I've had my Soleus LX-140 for about a week now and it is working great! So far the outside temperature hasn't been over 90 degrees, but this thing is blowing out some really cold air!!! My only gripe so far is with the shipping company not being able to find my correct address...but that doesn't have anything to do with Sylvane. Sylvane was very very quick in processing the shipment and the packaging was super sturdy to protect the unit. I had a tough time locating the instruction manual and remote (they were stuffed into one of the tubing pieces) but once I found them I was ready to go!

    Installation didn't take more than 15 minutes into my sliding glass window which is 73 inches in height. I did end up purchasing some foam tape to tighten up the gaps between the door and the window kit. I haven't used the other options available (fan/dehumidifier/heat), but so far the cooling is fantastic! I have the unit in my living room which is about 600 sq feet and it connects to the kitchen and there are also two bedrooms located on the same floor. I turned the unit on Max fan speed and set the thermostat to the minimum of 61 degrees and I can immediately feel the difference in the living room.

    After about 30 minutes, the circulation reached the kitchen and after about 1 hours time I noticed even the bedrooms cooled down just a bit. I would've been satisfied if this thing only cooled down the living room, but seeing how the benefit is extending to the rest of the home is very nice! I'm going to keep the unit running since it's supposed to heat up next week past the 90's since there were some reviews where people were saying their units were leaking puddles of water on their floor.

    Overall, I'd recommend this product to anyone who needs A/C primarily in one or few rooms (that are connected) before they invest in central A/C. A little less than $500 versus a few thousand is a great savings...not to mention the utility bill difference every month too!

    This unit died after only 2 weeks of use. The compressor would not turn on and kept getting an error code. I called the factory and they said it needed to be returned. While running, i noticed that their is no humidistat so you can't really dehumidify. All it does is run the AC on low.Its a little misleading to claim it can run as a dehumidifier.
    Returning it is not easy because the packaging is made to be destroyed during the unpacking process.

      I replaced a single hose cooling device with this dual hose unit, and it works great! No rattling nosies - just a humm. Cools quickly, plus this unit also acts as a heater in the winter. I plan to buy a second one to replace another single hose unit.

        I bought this unit for my business which had a glass greenhouse attached.
        After installing shades inside and shade fabric on the outside it was still too
        hot to use during the summer days. The greenhouse had four small windows
        on one side, perfect to vent this unit but too small to put in a window a/c.
        This works perfectly.

        Owned and operated this unit for two months. Installed in basement apartment for college, extremely high temps and humidity for two weeks. Handled this well but unit has run nonstop. Based on first electic bill expensive to operate. Pleased with the noise level inside and out. Would make a suggestion to the design engineers- 10 make hoses one foot longer, 2) angle the window intake and discharge vents away from each other. The intake now sucks in the hot discharge air since they are so close.
        Would buy another.

        This is a poor product. Do NOT buy this. Received the product fairly quickly. Open and run it same day. Compressor cycling on and off every 3 minutes when the room were 75 degrees unit set at 61 degree and fan on high. Adjusting fan speed to lower speed, the on cycle is still 3 minutes but the off cycle was over 4 minutes. Spec state that noice level of 46dB assuming at 7 meters away. With fan speed on on, it was about 59dB at 7 meters away . Contact the manufacture wasn't easy as I keep get route direct to voice mail. Finally left a voice mail and never got a response. Tries and again finally got to talk a a technician, he said it's bad and told me someone will call me next day for solution. No one call me the next day. I call the manufacturer again following day, they instruct me to send back to seller. Why didn't the technician tell me to do so in the first place? Return it for a replacement.

        Its so great that I will not have to get central air. I had one small window unit in my mobile home and it was not enough to cool the back bedrooms. This is perfect, now cool air flows throughout this home and my electric bill did not go up at all.

        If this can cool down the entire home in the middle of a Florida summer, I know it will work elsewhere. Also, the self condensation remover works great. Never any water in the bucket!
