Comments about Whynter 12,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner:

I looked for a long time before buying this unit. When the box arrived, I was shocked at the size and weight - almost 100 lbs!!!! But once unpacked, the unit was much smaller and easier to move around. I have a 350 square foot finished attic space that I placed this unit in. After a quick installation, I turned it on and was a little surprised by how load it was, but I have no experience with these kind of units, so I assume that its a normal sound level. The room was almost 90 degrees, and it took almost 3 hours to get the room down to 75 degrees. Doesn't seem great but in an attic space, in the middle of the day, in Southern California's summer heat - I didn't think it was too bad. Not to mention that there is a huge opening in the floor where the stairs enter the attic, and all the hot air from the 3000 square foot house funnels right up into the attic. So, I honestly think that given the extreme condition of my application, this machine does a decent job. As far as design goes, it looks like a little nondescript robot - clean lines - nice color. I don't like the temperature display at all - ridiculously bright neon blue. I guess it's great if you need to read it from 50 feet away, but just ugly.

All in all, this AC unit is great value and solid performer. I would recommend this to anyone. Sylvane also has the best prices I could find anywhere online.

Comments about Whynter 12,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner:

This unit is a high output room air conditioner. It is rather bulky, and not too attractive because of the hoses. However, it's very efficient and works well for temporary purposes. It's quiet and easy to use.

Comments about Whynter 12,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner:

Easy to set up. We also had a piece of plexiglass cut with holes to fit into a sliding glass door. We first tried the unit when outside temps were near 100 degrees and high humidity, in a large open space (20 x 25, with some enclosed spaces). It definitely cooled the room and reduced the humidity but had a hard time bringing the temp to the 76 degrees it was set to.

Keeping cool with less effort

By Frank Knight

Comments about Whynter 12,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner:

We switched from window A/C units to portable single hose units several years ago. Last year the upstairs single hose unit failed and we switched to a dual hose Whynter ARC-14S unit and were very please with how effective it was and also relatively quieter.

This year the old single hose unit downstairs failed and I took the opportunity to upgrade to a Whynter ARC-12SD. Again the difference was very noticeable and we are extremely pleased with the performance from a relatively quieter unit. During the cooler months they easily roll into the corner of a closet so are a lot easier on the back than window units. If you live in area where A/C is only needed a few months of the year do yourself a favor and buy one of the dual hose Whynter units. I am certain you will be please with their performance and ease of installation.
