  • Product Overview

    Cool your bedroom, home office, garage,  or workshop with the Whynter Sno 13,000-BTU Portable Air Conditioner. The portable air conditioner cools up to 420 square feet and includes a window venting kit with a 5-foot exhaust hose. Self-evaporating technology, eco-friendly operation, and compact design make this portable air conditioner an excellent solution for energy-efficient cooling. Available in Platinum (Whynter ARC-13S) and Frost White (Whynter ARC-13W), the Whynter 13,000-BTU Portable Air Conditioners provide the same powerful cooling as a central AC system without the expensive installation.

    Key Features

    • Remote Control: This digital remote control allows you to adjust the speed, cool, timer, and dehumidifier settings and displays the current operating mode and temperature in the LCD screen.

    • Washable Air Filters: This portable air cooler uses two reusable air filters that are easily accessible from each side of the unit.

    • Programmable Timer: The Whynter Eco-Friendly 13,000-BTU Portable Air Conditioner is equipped with a 24-hour programmable timer for easy, set-and-go operation.

    • Night Mode: For optimum comfort and energy-efficiency, this function decreases the noise level and conserves energy while you sleep.

    • Thermostatic Control: The Whynter 13,000-BTU Portable AC cycles on and off to maintain your desired temperature.

    • Auto-Drain Technology: This function automatically exhausts condensate water for hassle-free operation.

    Multi-Purpose Operation

    With three independent operating modes, the Whynter ARC-13S Portable Air Conditioner gives you more bang for your buck. In addition to providing 13,000 BTUs of cooling as a portable air conditioner, this air cooler also functions as a fan and a dehumidifier.

    When used to cool, the portable air conditioner exhausts hot air out of a room window through an exhaust hose and the window venting kit. In dehumidifier mode, the Whynter 13,000-BTU Portable AC removes up to 43 pints of excess water per day. Additionally, this portable air conditioner allows you to set and program two functions for subsequent operation using the remote control and timer.

    Unique Style and Design

    The Whynter 13,000-BTU Portable Air Conditioners feature easy portability and intelligent, ergonomic design. Built-in front casters and large back wheels make it easy to move the unit from place to place. In addition, a convenient handle and a retractable pull cord allow you to lift and pull the portable AC with ease. The Whynter ARC-13W Portable Air Conditioner has enough style to place on a countertop and compact enough to store behind a sofa or in a corner.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Is there a kit available that will enable me to use this AC with a sliding glass door?

    The Whynter Sno Portable Air Conditioner, like other portable ACs, comes with a window kit used to attach the hot air exhaust hose to a window opening of a vertical sash or horizontally sliding window. The window kit has an extendable bar that fills the window opening when the window is lifted open about 3 inches. If you have a sliding glass door instead of a standard window, you will usually have an opening about 84 to 90 inches high. The extendable bar of the window kit can be positioned vertically in the door opening, with the door slightly open about 3 inches. However, most window kits are not long enough to cover the full length of a sliding door completely . Many people simply close the excess open space above and below the adjustable bar with a filler, such as a piece of Plexiglas, plywood, plastic, or Styrofoam. Get more information on this setup in our article Portable Air Conditioner Frequently Asked Questions.

          We purchased this unit to use on our 42 foot houseboat and boy does it deliver! Sylvane was wonderful to deal with and the unit is amazing. After days of research on-line, I called to order it and to ask a few questions...they had the best price on the net. The customer service representative even gave me a coupon code to save some money off the purchase. I think the shipping was free too...and they sent it directly to the marina.

          Set up was a breeze and when I contacted Sylvane because some of the plastic accessory parts got broken in shipment, they immediately contacted the manufacturer who then contacted me to send me the new parts....this is one "sounds too good to be true.." story that actually happened and turned out to be true! The unit is quiet, powerful, looks great and fits in small spaces...perfect for our boat! Thank you, Sylvane...you have earned a loyal customer!

          I hate to give this air conditioner such a bad review, because it cools well. But the drainage problem is so severe that I can't recommend it. When I first got it, it ran for about 20 minutes then shut off. I called the manufacturer and was told to remove the drain plug to empty water that may have been left in the unit when they tested it at the factory. Sure enough, about 18 ounces of water came out, and the unit switched back on. Unfortunately, that wasn't the end of it - every twenty minutes to a half hour, it required draining to operate. I contacted Whynter again and was told I would need to install tubing so the unit could continuously drain.

          Since the drain is right at the bottom of the unit, I had to put it on a platform so gravity could help drain it. This, of course, defeats the purpose of the low design. I'm very surprised other reviewers haven't had this problem. I live in New York City which can get humid in July and August, but this problem occurred on relatively dry days in June, when none of my window air conditioners have been dripping at all.

            Wish we had made this purchase a lot sooner! It was definitely worth the cost. And much cheaper than installing central A/C.
            My husband rolls it to the garage to store during the cool months, and quickly rolls it back out and easily installs it for the hot months.
            This unit does require some creative draining every so often, and almost daily when it is really humid out. But, for North County San Diego, we are very happy with our purchase. I even want another one for our bedroom!

                    Purchased this item based on Sylvane sales rep. recommendation. My husband described our needs in detail including square footage, western exposure, room layout, etc. Rep. said this is the one you need. Husband said are you sure? She basically said I know what I'm talking about, this is my business, etc. We ordered the product and found that it cooled less than half the intended space and never got below 77 degrees. Took over an hour to repack correctly.

                        Got this for my office at work. Being in IT, there are several computers, 5 monitors and a laptop in a fairly small space (about 8x8 feet). The office can go from 0 to 80 degrees in no time. This unit cools it off quick, everyone who stops in loves it, it just blasts cold air. (I think people come to my office just to cool down, the boss keeps the rest of the floor at about 76 degrees).

                        With the timer I can set it to turn on an 1/2 hour before I get there and off 1/2 hour after I leave.

                        The noise level is ok, it's a lot quieter than a larger, but 1/2 as powerful unit it replaced, so I'm liking that. You can almost not even tell when the compressor kicks on. The fan can also adjust it's speed automatically depending on the cooling required.

                        I am sure this unit would have no problem with larger rooms. It keeps the office at a nice 68 degrees with no effort at all.

                          I'm using this product to cool a small bedroom in my 100-year-old house. I have elderly cats, and I'm pretty elderly myself -- so when the humidity is about 75% and the temp is over 90 degrees -- this is doing the trick. I like that when the weather is cooler I can still open my bedroom window without having to disassemble the exhaust hose.

                          It doesnt cool a 200sqft area very well and also one of the main reasons i bought this unit because it was suppose to be self draining and you didnt have to pail buckets of water out. That is not the case with this unit, after a few days of running it will just shut off and not do anything. You then have to unhook it, take it outside and turn it on its side to drain all the water out so it will start running again. SUCKS i thought i made the right choice with this but i was wrong.I guess i should have just cut a hole in my wall and put a window unit so i don't have to deal with this water and could have saved a lot of $

                          Living in Vermont, we were always told that we didn't need air conditioning; don't believe it, you do. We decided to go with a portable AC so we could share it between 2 rooms. Sylvane was dream to work with: the product arrived promptly and when one of the plastic components arrived broken, they cleared up the issue immediately.

                          The AC is vented thru the wall and Whynter helped when we had questions about venting it that way as well as when we damaged one of the connectors, replacing it promptly.

                          When in the bedroom, the AC cools the room within 10 minutes and within an hour 2/3 of the rest of the house is cooling down as well. We have been thrilled with our purchase.

                          Lastly, our electric bill has seen little impact - a nice surprise - since we have run it 24 hours for several days in a row.

                          Thank you Sylvane - we are referring friends to your website!!
