  • Product Overview

    The Whynter 14,000-BTU Dual-Hose Portable Air Conditioner is gentle on the environment and your budget. Its eco-friendly design, quiet operation, and powerful cooling power make it a top choice for keeping up to 500 square feet comfortable all year. The Whynter ARC-14S Portable Air Conditioner provides cooling, dehumidifying, and fan-only operation, while the Whynter ARC-14SH Portable Air Conditioner model features all 3 modes plus heat. This model also includes 2 filters: a pre-filter to catch dust and other particles and an activated carbon filter for removing odors. 


    Eco-Conscious Construction

    In keeping with Whynter’s Go Green Mission, Whynter 14,000-BTU Portable Air Conditioners have minimal environmental impact. For ecological cooling, these portable air conditioners use a CFC-free refrigerant and contain lead-free RoHS compliant components.

    The Whynter ARC-14S features auto drain technology, which uses recycled moisture to enhance the cooling process. This patented auto drain function fully exhausts all condensate automatically in most environments. With dual-hose operation, this portable air conditioner cools your space faster and reduces energy consumption.

    Various Operating Modes

    With 4 independent operating modes, the Whynter ARC-14SH gives you more bang for your buck. The Whynter ARC-14S offers all 3 modes but doesn’t offer supplemental heat.

    • Cool Mode: 14,000 BTUs of cooling power make this a powerful option to cool your home. When used as a cooler, the portable air conditioner exhausts hot air out of a room window through an exhaust tube and the window venting kit.
    • Heat Mode: The Whynter ARC-14SH Portable Air Conditioner distributes 13,000 BTUs of heat per hour.
    • Dehumidifier Mode:  Air is dehumidified as it passes through this portable AC. It removes up to 101 pints of excess water per day.
    • Fan Mode: Circulate air with 3 fan speed settings—low, medium, and high.

    Additional Highlights

    • Remote Control: A handy remote control allows you to adjust the speed, timer, temperature, and view the current operating mode in the LCD display screen.
    • Easy Portability: Rolling casters make it easy to move your Whynter 14,000-BTU Portable Air Conditioner from room to room.
    • Programmable Timer: A 24-hour programmable timer allows for easy, set-and-go operation. Adjust the timer to turn your AC on or off up to 24 hours in advance.
    • Auto Shut-Off: When the water tank is full, the warning light will illuminate on the control panel and the compressor will automatically shut down until the tank is emptied.
    • Carbon Filter: This activated carbon filter removes smoke and other odors from your space. 
    • Washable Pre-Filter: A washable pre-filter removes large particles like dust and dander.
    • Thermostatic Control: This Whynter AC cycles on and off to maintain your desired temperature.
    • Auto-Drain Technology: This function uses a gravity drain system to automatically exhaust condensate water for hassle-free operation.
    • Quiet Operation: Whynter is known for creating quiet ACs, and the ARC-14S produces less than 56 dBAs of noise when in use.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the EER rating of this unit?

    This unit has an Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) of 11.2.

    Does this unit function independently as a dehumidifier or does it dehumidify while cooling?

    The Whynter ARC-14S/SH does have an independent dehumidifier function. The unit dehumidifies somewhat while it cools. However, when operating in the independent Dehumidify mode, full cooling power is reduced to allow it to lower a space's humidity more effectively.

    How noisy is this model?

    The maximum noise level for the Whynter ARC-14S/H is 56 decibels.

    Does this model come with equipment to seal the open portion of the window? Also, will it install in double-hung and horizontally sliding windows?

    This model can be exhausted through both vertical-opening and horizontally sliding windows. It comes with a window kit that includes accessories to seal off the open portion of the window. Detailed installation information can be found on page 7 of the Owner's Manual.

    Can you vent this unit through the wall? Do you sell kits for this and if so, would I have to purchase it separately?

    This portable AC is primarily designed to be vented through a double-hung or sliding window and includes a window venting kit in the package. You can vent the AC through a wall using the included exhaust hose. However, a complete kit for wall venting, including the tools and materials you'll need to create the wall hole, is not available. More information on setting up a portable AC to exhaust through a wall can be found in our article How To Vent Your Portable AC.

    What is the maximum window width the included installation accessories will work for?

    The window kit extends to a maximum width of 36 inches.

    What is the minimum window width needed to use the window kit?

    The window kit can be shortened to accommodate a minimum window width of 12 inches.

    How is the water collected during the A/C process vented from the system? Or does it collect in an on-board tank? Or both?

    This Whynter model actually does both. While in Cool mode, water that drips off the evaporator is collected in an internal tank. The hot air exhaust then evaporates and expels it out of the exhaust tubes. Water builds up in the tank while in Dehumidification mode. A drain hose is included and allows the water to drain at this time.

    Are the window mounting hoses flexible or fixed angle to the window?

    The hoses are flexible, so you can make adjustments. Thank you for your inquiry.

    I have two questions: Will blowing rain enter exhaust hoses and damage unit? Will window screens affect efficient operation of unit?

    It's possible for rain to enter the hose if the wind is blowing hard enough, but it will not be an issue. The rain will be evaporated by hot air coming out of the exhaust hose. You can leave your screen in place. It shouldn't influence the unit in any way.

    Do you have extensions or longer hose capabilities for this product?

    Yes, Whynter offers an extension kit. This hose extender fits many models. Note that it's generally suggested that exhaust hoses don't extend more than 9 feet.

    This is a dual hose unit; is it a closed loop design where no air is vented outside?

    All portable ACs (both single- and dual-hose) need to be vented outside. Dual-hose ACs draw air in with one hose and use the other to exhaust the air. For more information on venting portable ACs, please read our How To Vent Your Portable Air Conditioner article.

    Where do I purchase replacement carbon filters?

    You can purchase most replacement parts online. Check out our Accessories tab for the Whynter 14,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner.

    Is it true that the Whynter 14-S will not turn on and/or work if the outside temperature is above 95 degrees? Summer is frequently hotter than 95 degrees. Does this 14000-BTU portable air conditioner operate at temperatures above 95 degrees?

    This unit is optimized to work in room temperatures between 64°F and 95°F. The hotter it is inside (and outside), the harder the unit will have to work to keep your room cool. It will still work, but make sure to keep up with the maintenance requirements during the summer.

    While in cool mode will it will it blow 100 percent of the moisture through the exhaust tube no matter how high the humidity? We've had other models that had to be drained and we want to get away from that concept.

    This model offers Whynter's patented auto drain function that fully exhausts all condensate automatically in most environments. In extremely humid conditions, there may be some moisture buildup that can be drained, but most (if not all) moisture will be evaporated and exhausted automatically.

    Is it possible to use this unit without the hose? Would it be possible to either not use the hose, or have the water from the hose just collect in a bucket?

    You have to vent this unit using the provided hose and window kit. This is not only for getting rid of condensate, but also because it needs to exhaust out the warm room air. The window will need to be sealed (using the window kit), so the unit runs efficiently. For more information about venting your portable AC, please read our How To Vent Your Portable AC article.

    How often do you recommend changing the filter?

    Whynter suggests washing the filter after about 100 hours of use. You can continue reusing the filter until it becomes physically damaged. For more information, please check out the Owner's Manual.

    How do I vent this unit to use the Dehumidify mode?

    The manufacturer recommends venting the air exchange hoses INSIDE the room when Dehumidify Mode is selected. This causes the dried air to be vented inside. Some cooling will occur if the unit is vented to the outside.

    I need to elevate my unit 4-6 inches so the water continuously drains from the hose at the bottom/back of the unit. How would you suggest doing that?

    You can put the unit on a desk or table if you want to raise it higher that a few inches. For 4-6 inches, simply use a flat piece of wood, bricks, stack 2X4's, or anything else to evenly raise your AC. There aren't items that are made specifically for this purpose.

    Whynter ARC-14S is a great product.
    I have been using Portable Air-Conditioner for over 5 years. I did a lot of research before buying this unit to replace the old unit which is not really giving cool air anymore. I just received the unit yesterday (one day of use) and I can tell the big difference in noise, cold air and product design.

    1. You can really feel the air output is cold.
    2. The design is very nice.
    3. I checked the power consumption (with Kill A Watt gadget) and it shows up as 120V and 1080 watts.
    4. I like the Dual Hose Design as it does Not use room air to cool the compressor (which I read from online reviews, as such the room will Not lose cool air and also not be affected with Negative air flow)
    5. The location on the Unit to fix the 2 hoses is just right (back mid section) which is about 4 inches from the bottom edge of the window (New York City Apartment). I only need about 20 inches of hose. I think the shorter the hose used is good.
    6. Unit has 3 modes - Fan, Cooling Mode and Dehumidify modes. That means that I can use the unit 3 seasons in a year, from Spring to Fall.
    Spring and Fall - for Dehumidify Mode
    Summer - for Cooling Mode
    **I will not use the Whynter ARC-14S as a Fan. I will still use a Box Fan as I want to get maximum life span out of the Whynter ARC-14S fan for dehumidify and cooling modes.
    7. It has 3 fan speed modes which is great as I can set to Low Fan with Cooling Mode during night sleeping hours when the night temperature is not too high.
    8. The unit is not as heavy as I read on many online reviews.
    9. The Product is very well packed. I have bought more expensive stuff from more established large companies and none of them packed their products like Whynter.
    10. The control panel display on unit is quite bright. Just paste a Post-It Note over it and problem solved.
    11. The remote control is good and easy to operate. Just a matter of getting used to the icons/signs (as there are no words). I think I will use the Remote Control instead of the control panels (on front of Unit), so I do not have to bend over to look at the buttons to press so I do Not press the wrong buttons.
    12. This unit is very effective in cooling 2 rooms facing west where the Summer Heat can send the room temperature to as high as 93 (most summer afternoons).

    A great price, great product, very fast shipping, very good packing.

    I installed this unit in the living room of an attic apartment. There was no window capable of being used for venting so I ran the tubes through the wall and vented under the eaves. The tubing run is right at the maximum of nine feet. I have an indoor outdoor thermometer with the probe behind the kneewall. The best this unit has done is lower the temperature thirteen degrees below the uncooled attic area. The hottest it's been in that area is 111F with an outside temperature around 95F. The living room temperature was 98F. Granted, it has a lot to overcome. The attic overhead is insulated but the kneewalls are not. Direct sun bakes the roof during the day. Mostly I keep it in fan mode with an overhead fan also running on high. This way, the room doesn't overheat and the compressor isn't running constantly. This unit is not the best alternative for me.

    Comments about Whynter 14,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner:

    The most frustrating issue about the air conditioner is that it really does not come with adequate equipment to install in a side sliding window. Those of us in the condo building have had to design our own inserts to fit the opening of the window - plywood, plexiglass, etc - and then have a skilled person cut the appropriate holes. This adds to the cost of the unit. And another factor is the window treatments. Shades can now not be lowered below the 2 hoses vented to the outside and consequently hot sun can not be blocked without coming up with another alternative resulting in more expense. I am happy with the air conditioner itself but the manufacturer REALLY needs to include some satisfactory fit for the side slide window or disclose that it is suited for an up lifting window only. Getting a good seal on the window that vents the hoses is essential to cooling the room.

        Comments about Whynter 14,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner:

        We got this to replace an older ac. A lot quieter then other unit even though 40% more BTU. Only downside is no slider door attachment for it, as that is were we vent the AC unit. As this came right after the hot spell ended, I only tested the unit briefly. OMG I thought was in the fridge, as the unit put out at least twice the
        cooling power of the old unit. It cooled down our large living room (20'x18') without a problem.

        Sylvane was great came when promised, and we save
        lots of money over getting it locally.

        Thank you Sylvane!

            I was very skeptical when first buying this. I was thinking that since it had multiple uses (Dehumidfy, A/C, heater) that it probably wasn't going to do much in the way of cooling but I was wrong. It cools down very well and also removes smells from the kitchen and cigarete smoke from all the rooms. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to spend a little more for a high quality machine.

            Comments about Whynter 14,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner:

            The unit works great and cools the room sufficiently, but it is very loud. I can not use it overnight because of it being so loud. Still, it is a good product and works as advertised.

              Comments about Whynter 14,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner:

              This Whynter 14000 BTU was purchased to replace a Royal Sovereign 13500 BTU. Both were dual hose A/C's. Only purchase dual hose units because they are much more efficient. The Royal unit ran half a day in late spring, and early fall. It crashed (compressor) after two years. It ran 24/7 on hot days which we have plenty of in Texas. The big differences between the two are how much cooler the Whynter unit makes this 16 X 20 room which also has a high ceiling, and in over two weeks running 24/7, rainy days and dry ones, I have never dumped an ounce of water. Keep the filter clean and this unit is truly service free. The wheels on the Royal Sovereign broke the first time I tried to roll it into place. Finally I sat it up on two folding chairs and placed a two gallon trash can inside a two gallon wide pan to catch the water runoff. It was either that or pull the plug and dump it every 35 minutes. This Whynter unit really does use its own runoff to help cool. I installed the Whynter, let it set 4 hours as requested in the manual before turning it on, and I have not touched it since except for cleaning the filter. So far I have really enjoyed my purchase, and recommend this Whynter over any brand. I will update my comments if any problems develop.
