Comments about Whynter Eco-Friendly 13,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner (ARC-13PG):
We purchased this model right after the East Coast heat wave in June. We needed something that would work with slider windows or doors since that's all the house has. The unit arrived as promised and was easy to unpack and set up, although we had to fill in the top of the door with something (we used foam core board) because the vent kit is a little short, but that's OK. The AC works GREAT and yes, we would purchase this item again.
The vent hose is wide enough to draw the heat outside so it is completely cool around the unit. We drained the the unit after about 5 days just to make sure it wouldn't overflow. There was maybe a quarter of a cup of moisture if that.
The only thing that is a bit odd is the venting collar that attaches to the window slide bar is slightly bigger than the slide bar piece, so it prevents the door from closing completely. We had to fill in around it. We have sliding glass dorrs that also have screens so we are able to keep the screen closed to keep bugs out.
And lastly, the directions say you can tell what mode the unit is in by the front panel display and to press the mode button to seslect the desired operation (AC, dehumidifier, fan). The display only notes the fan and its speed. If you use the remote all functions are displayed.
Overall, we are very happy with this unit!
