  • Product Overview

    If you have a room with inefficient cooling, consider the quiet and compact Whynter ARC-131GD. Ideal for rooms as large as 420 square feet, this portable air conditioner can be installed quickly and its compact design fits in almost any room. Whynter's patented AutoDrain technology automatically exhausts moisture collected during the cooling process, so you won't have to manually empty a water bin like other portable ACs.

    Use its digital control panel or remote control to set the temperature, choose 1 of 4 operating modes, or set the 24-hour programmable timer. This model is also known for its exceptionally quiet operation, topping off at 56 decibels.

    Packed with Features

    Whynter is known as a high-quality, efficient brand with loads of available features; and this model is no exception. Set your ideal temperature on the digital control panel, and it does the work for you. Its programmable timer lets you set this AC to turn on or off up to 24 hours in advance. In addition, 4 operating modes help keep you comfortable in any weather:

    • Cool Mode: Cool your space with your choice of 3 fan speeds—high, medium, and low.
    • Dehumidify Mode: This portable AC removes up to 91 pints of excess moisture from your home, so use it on especially humid days.
    • Fan Mode: On days when air circulation is enough to stay cool, use the Whynter ARC-131GD as a comfort-boosting fan.
    • Automatic Mode: The air conditioner runs at a speed based on your ambient temperature, taking the thought out of cooling your space.

    Fully Self-Evaporative

    Most customers want a portable AC that fully-evaporates condensation collected while cooling—something Whynter ACs do very well. Since moisture is naturally pulled from the air, water typically collects in a bin inside the unit. But Whynter’s patented auto-drain technology recycles moisture collected and exhausts it outside, meaning little to no maintenance is required.

    Under extremely hot or humid conditions, the Whynter ARC-131GD Portable Air Conditioner may not be able to recycle moisture quickly enough, so a backup reservoir inside this portable AC collects condensation. Its compressor automatically stops if the reservoir is full, avoiding any chance of overflow. This should be a rare occurrence, since the AutoDrain technology naturally exhausts all moisture under most conditions.

    Additional Highlights

    • Auto-Restart: In the event of a power outage, the Whynter ARC-131GD restarts at the previously set mode and settings when power is restored.
    • Programmable Timer: Program this AC to run up to 24 hours in advance, so you can walk into a cool home without running it all day.
    • Carbon Filter: An activated carbon filter removes smoke and other odors from your space.  
    • Washable Air Filter: A washable pre-filter catches unwanted particles from entering your air.
    • Remote Control: Adjust your settings from across the room with its remote control.
    • Thermostat Control: The Whynter 13,000-BTU Dual-Hose Portable AC cycles on and off to maintain your set temperature, which saves you on energy costs while cooling.
    • Casters: Rolling casters make it easy to move this model from room to room.
    • LCDI Plug: This safety plug detects if any current is leaking from the conductors. 


    This model is made for people who want a low-maintenance AC—its AutoDrain technology and loads of features ensure easy operation.  

    What Customers Love

    • Compact Design: This compact and quiet AC can go pretty much anywhere you need it, even rooms where you sleep.
    • Automatic Mode: Your portable AC selects a setting based on your ambient room temperature, ensuring your room stays comfortable without any work from you.

    Things To Consider

    • Room Size: This portable AC is ideal for spaces 420 square feet or smaller. Consider another Whynter model if you like this model's features but need a different size.

      Comments about Whynter 13,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner ARC-131GD:

      I've had this unit for two weeks and it's done everything I've wanted it to do.
      This questionnaire should be asked after the owner has owned it for a longer period of time.
      My first reaction is that it looks good, not too loud and does the job it was intended to do.
