    Comments about Whynter ARC-143MX 14000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner with 3M Antimicrobial Filter:

    I use the AC in my sun room which has poor insulation and lots of windows. Average outside temp in my area S. CA is 105 in summer. I can now use this room year round. I've been using it for about 3 weeks and am still waiting to see if there is a reduction or increase in my Electric bill....praying for reduction! The AC cools room very comfortable and I love the remote/ timer feature. I can set it to shut off when I want. I run the AC at about 73 degrees and it works great. Only negative is when draining the water from base, there is no hose attachment...sticking a very shallow pan and having to tip the heavy unit is tough for me physically. I wish there was a better drain system. Overall, I love the unit...wish it came in white so it blended with my room decor, but that is superficial. Cools great and ease of use is great...I ran hoses out an unused dog door and avoided all window installation issues...just had to insulate around hoses...easy to remove and roll away in winter.

    Comments about Whynter ARC-143MX 14000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner with 3M Antimicrobial Filter:

    I use this air conditioner in the living room. Cools the room fast and evenly. Temperature display is off about 4-6 degrees from actual room temperature. The window kit design needs improvement. Performs well in cooling.

    This is not your budget product. It's on the high side, but if your looking for fast cold air, it'll come through. The 3M filter is great too if you have pets. Not a full blown purifier, but it definitely handles a good amount of dander and fur. I'm glad I paid for exactly what I need and more.

    Best Uses

    • Cooling if no window unit

    Comments about Whynter ARC-143MX 14000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner with 3M Antimicrobial Filter:

    My windows can't handle a window air conditioner without major hassles. Great to have a solution I can use for the odd week of too hot weather then easily put away again. Nice to have the option of cooling the bedroom area at night and the wife's home office during the day. I like the ARC-143MX. The 3M filter instead of the carbon one (ARC-14S) means more air flow but no odor removal. Pick the model on that difference. Cools my 13x13 bedroom down from 81 to 72F in 30 minutes. Outside temperature usually dropping from 87 to 80 at the same time. 72F to 64F takes longer. I appreciate not having to dump out water! Casters roll easily. Handles are just indentations on the sides of the shell: wouldn't take much to drop and lack of anything to grip makes two person carry by handles an iffy thing to do. Not designed to go upstairs at night and downstairs every morning. Shell does not handle torque stress well. Compressor noise is a little too much for me to sleep next to but quiet enough to hold a conversation while standing around the ARC-143MX. The window kit is plain PVC: it needed some caulk and stick-on foam strips to not let in outside air and bugs. Would be better if window kit was designed so intake and exhaust could be spaced as far apart as the width of the window opening instead of fixed at a few inches apart. Remote easier to use than front-facing controls on unit because unit display awkward to read unless kneeling. Unit is tall enough that the cold air is mixing in the upper part of the room and not getting trapped by the bed or couch. Power cord length is good but I can see where longer would come in handy. For a product in this price range, the timer should be upgraded to do daily scheduled on and off timings.
    I like the ARC-143MX and hope the next model gets a few tweaks.
