  • Product Overview

    The Whynter 10,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner ARC-10WB is a well-designed air conditioning system optimized for functionality and versatility. Ideal for home and office use, this eco-friendly air conditioner can cool an area up to 300 square feet—roughly the size of a small apartment or large reception area. A pre-filter traps dust, dirt, and mold as the AC cools, and a fully self-evaporative drainage system reduces the frequency of water drainage. As an advanced level of air filtration, the silver ion particle filter eliminates bacteria in the air and prevents the growth of microorganisms such as fungi, viruses, and spores.


    Multiple user options and settings extend the operation of the Whynter ARC-10WB according to user preference. These include 4 fan speeds, fan- and dehumidify-only modes, both manual and auto-swing louvers, and a 24-hour programmable timer. Casters and carrying handles allow the Whynter 10,000 BTU Portable AC to go wherever you need it most.

    Environmentally Friendly Operation

    Few air conditioners rival this Whynter Eco-Friendly 10,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner when it comes to green technology. In addition to using ozone-safe R-410A refrigerant, the Whynter ARC-10WB contains no lead—which is toxic to humans in any amount—and is free of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which are known to damage the ozone.

    Operating the air conditioner in auto mode saves energy by running the compressor only when the surrounding area reaches a certain temperature. Additionally, if the manually selected temperature is within 5 degrees Fahrenheit of the current temperature, the Whynter Green ARC-10WB Portable Air Conditioner automatically runs the fan until there is a 5 degree temperature difference. This not only conserves energy, it also increases the life of the air conditioner by preventing overuse.

    Enhanced Features for Convenience

    The Whynter ARC-10WB Air Conditioner provides users with a multitude of convenient features, such as:

    • Auto Restart: Should the power go out, auto restart will save your settings. Once the power returns, you won’t have to manually reset your preferred options.                                                                           
    • Programmable Timer: Lets you delay the portable AC’s start or stop operation within a 24-hour timeframe to save energy and extend the life of the air conditioner.
    • LED Digital Display: Lets you view the current or set temperature depending on mode as well as any error messages. Temperature can be displayed in Fahrenheit or Celsius as desired.
    • Lockable Settings: Prevents accidental changing of the settings once you have optimized operation of the air conditioner exactly how you want it.
    • Auto-Swing Louvers: Oscillates the louvers located on the front of the console to spread airflow.
    • 4-Speed Fan: Choose from low, medium, high, and auto fan speeds when in fan-only and cooling modes.
    • LCDI Plug: A Leakage-Current Detection and Interruption (LCDI) plug on the power cord prevents fires by automatically disrupting the power supply if an electrical breakdown is detected.
    • Remote Control: The included remote, complete with batteries, gives you complete control over the air conditioner from up to 26 feet away.
    • Noise Level: The Whynter 10,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner produces less than 54 decibels (dB) of noise—quieter than the typical office workplace.
    •  
    • Included Window Kit: Included with the Whynter ARC-10WB Air Conditioner is a plastic window kit and exhaust hose for easy installation in vertical sash or horizontal sliding windows. Simple, detailed instructions for installation and exhaust setup are provided in the user’s manual.

    Advanced Drainage System

    Unlike conventional portable air conditioners, the Whynter ARC-10WB Air Conditioner features a self-evaporative drainage system. Instead of simply siphoning condensation into a tank that you will have to empty on a regular basis, this AC's self-evaporative system recycles a portion of the water and uses it to cool the internal coils within the unit. This reduces and, in some cases, eliminates collected condensate. Note that drainage efficiency is dependent on your specific environmental conditions. In more humid environments, some condensate will still collect in the air conditioner’s drain tray for manual removal.

    As an alternative drainage method, use the included gravity drain hose. When the drainage hose is attached to the portable AC, condensate drains automatically to a nearby drain or another location using the force of gravity.

    Four Operational Modes Plus Sleep Mode

    The Whynter ARC-10WB Portable Air Conditioner operates in four separate modes as well as additional sleep mode.

    • Cooling mode activates the AC’s cooling function. Use this mode to set your desired cooling temperature between 62 to 88 degrees Fahrenheit and control cooling speed.
    • Fan mode runs the air conditioner in fan-only operation. This mode is helpful when ventilation is a priority, maximum cooling capacity is not needed, or when you want to save energy by not running the compressor.
    • Dry mode operates the air conditioner’s dehumidifier feature. If humid or damp conditions are an overriding factor in the environment, the Whynter ARC-10WB Air Conditioner can remove excess moisture in the air at a rate of 55 pints per day while in dry mode.
    • Auto mode takes the guesswork out of the cooling process by letting the Whynter Green ARC-10WB determine the best way to keep you comfortable. The air conditioner will automatically choose between fan-only and cooling modes based on your ambient temperature. This feature is valuable in an environment with frequent or unpredictable temperature changes or if you find yourself constantly adjusting the thermostat to stay comfortable.
    • Sleep mode runs the air conditioner quieter than normal and at a lower power level to reduce energy consumption. In this mode, the set temperature is slowly increased during the first hour and held constant thereafter. This mode is useful for keeping the air conditioner running overnight while saving energy.

        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.

          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

          from USA

          Verified Buyer

          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.
