      Comments about Whynter 10,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner ARC-10WB:

      I am a first time customer with Sylvane. I own a two story home, with a one-zone heat-pump central heat and air conditioning system. My bedroom has skylights, and gets really hot in the summer. I had been using a window air conditioner in additional to the central air conditioning system. But the window unit just never did the job, and became old enough to not be as cost effective. I decided to buy a portable unit instead, because of the added flexibility and the potential for being much more efficient. I ended up purchasing the Whynter 10,000 BTU portable air conditioner. It puts out a lot of cold air and much more cost effective than my old window unit. I'm the kind of person who does research on a product before buying it, and though I'm retired and on a budget, I also research and choose the vendors I use carefully, because service is just as important to me, as price. I spoke with several customer service representatives, at Sylvane, over a three day period, asking for information about the the air conditioner I wanted to buy. Each of the representatives that I spoke with were courteous, knowledgeable, and were eager to provide me with the answers to the questions I asked, no matter how silly I thought the questions might have been, without making me feel that I was imposing on them, or pressuring me for a sale. I am extremely happy with the service and the product I received from Sylvane, and will use this company again when I need to purchase an item that they carry in their inventory. I would give them five stars all the way around.

        This unit works better than a 14,000 BTU a/c portable I bought last year. Very happy

        Comments about Whynter 10,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner ARC-10WB:

        I purchased this product to use in a 3rd floor bedroom townhome/condo, which does not get cool enough by the installed central a/c system for the entire condo. The room is about 11x13. With the setting at 68 degrees the room is very cold in less than one hour. I usually keep the unit at 72 degrees on auto and sleep very comfortable through the night. The swing function on the front works very well in directing the flow of the air. The unit does not 'glow in the dark' like some other models and the noise is lower than most other portables. The size is very portable and easy to move around. I plan on tucking it away in my closet during the winter. We bought a piece of insulation from a DIY store and cut out a hole for the vent, so we could use this unit with the 6' high sliding doors in our bedroom (that go out to a small deck.) The only slight disappointment is that this unit does drip some water. I was hoping that there would be no leakage at all but on humid nights after eight hours of usage it drips about 1 1/2 liters of water. Nevertheless, we quickly resolved this issue by putting the plastic hose that came with the unit into a plastic water jug behind the unit. I have no regrets on this purchase and would highly recommend this unit for a small to average size bedroom.

        Wynter AC

        Comments about Whynter 10,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner ARC-10WB:

        I researched and researched portable ACs for my son's bedroom addition. When I called Sylvane about a question, they recommended this AC. It is great. Super easy to install. Window contraption is sturdy. It cools great. So far, have not had to empty any water (over 2 weeks). Quiet (There is noise, but it is a lot quieter than a window unit - kind of a dull hum.). Very easy to set up and operate. We are in Texas, where it has been over 100 degrees every day; the room is now cool and our son is now sleeping in his bedroom. I would definitely recommend this unit.
