Product Overview

Utilizing Avallon's exclusive InvisiMist drain technology, this 14,000 BTU portable air conditioner liberates you from ever having to drain an internal reservoir again. As warm air and humidity are normally associated, this portable air conditioner (PAC) is engineered to remove up to 86 pints of moisture from your air per day. In many cases, the unit's self-evaporative function will expel the majority of air moisture. However, in high-humidity environments, self-evaporation is not enough. Excess water accumulates in the internal reservoir and, to prevent itself from overflowing onto your floor, a PAC will automatically turn off. This can happen at any time and will require you to manually drain the PAC. The InvisiMist system solves this problem. Consisting of an internal drain pump, a water line and our InvisiMist nozzle, the system automatically turns on when water accumulates and safely disposes of it through the easy-to-assemble window kit. This unit is more powerful than other 14,000 BTU PACs, cooling your space up to 40% more quickly because of its dual-hose air system, which separates intake and exhaust, allowing for more air intake and cooling power. The three adjustable fan speeds allow you to customize the unit's operations to suit your cooling preferences. Included casters enable you move this PAC to wherever you need it, and the included remote with LED display allows you to easily change operating settings from anywhere in the room.

  • 14,000 BTU cooling power chills rooms up to 525 sq. ft.
  • Includes 3-piece window kit that will fit into windows ranging from 20 in. - 46 in.
  • Exhaust hose measures 5 in. Dia and can extend to 49 in.
  • Electronic controls with digital display and remote control included
  • Equipped with 4 casters for easy maneuverability
  • Low noise level of only 52 dBA
  • Auto restart function stores your settings so that in case of a power outage, the unit will pick right back up where it left off when power is regained
  • Backed by a 5-year limited manufacturer warranty

Answer: 
Casement window is no problem.The only limitation is hose length. The sliding glass door is a little tricky. You will have to add a filler board to make up the difference. Be sure to block the door for security.

Answer: 
Yes it will, depending on size of window the main piece the vents attach 2 are 24" with two additional slides to connect for larger. The sliding door would require something to fill the rest of the space such as a piece of plywood

Yes you can use it on a casement window just a pain in the butt to do. You have to cover the whole window with either plywood and cut holes in it or as I did wanting to get light I used plexi glass and cut holes in it.

May seem like a silly question but I haven't seen an answer anywhere yet. My HOA is a stickler about these kinds of things. Would I need to remove/raise my window screens to use the mist feature of this unit or would they interfere in any way?

As the mister attached to the end of the hose, I would guess that you would possibly have condensation drippage in your sill depending on how much space you have between window and screen. Further I would say that it would be no more than would get there with a good rainstorm. Just an educated guess. Keep in mind it will only mist when it needs to drain not all the time.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 60 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worked for two years, now need repair In less than two years the fan wheel broke. The unit is not even moved around it stays in same spot during the winter months and only the vent is removed from window. Not worth the $500 I spent for it to last less than 2 years. Also, having trouble finding a place to repair portable A/C units. Also, not energy efficient if you dare to purchase be prepared for your electric bill to increase dramatically. July 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Why didn't I buy this earlier?? Assembling the unit took more time than did the prior AC unit I had, but it was entirely worth the time and effort. The unit is a whole lot quieter than the previous unit, and the vents on the top of the unit are much more effective cooling than were the front mounted vents of the last AC unit. I don't use the remote as a remote, I just leave it in its holder. My unit cools a room with multiple PCs, so I set it and forget it. I like the dual hose setup since I don't end up exhausting cooled interior air in order to cool the room. I suspect I could probably sleep with this bad boy going in my bedroom if I had to, but it would be a bit loud for my preference. The smart drain system has so far worked flawlessly for the last month. August 3, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty good overall The Avalon A/C does a fair job. We actually have two A/C units in our family room trying to keep the area cool because besides having a large family room with a vaulted ceiling, we have somewhat of an open concept into the kitchen and dining area. This A/C unit alone is way too small for all three rooms. Between the two units we can keep the family room pretty comfortable; around 76 degrees on a mid 90 degree day. It doesn't matter if I start the A/C units in the morning or in the afternoon as long as the room is 76 degrees or cooler, it'll still keep the room comfortable. I suspect if our house had an attic fan the A/C unit would perform better as the heat in other areas of the house skyrockets through the afternoon since roofing vents just don't cut it. I do like the invisimist feature with not having to drain the A/C unit like our second one. It was easy to install and the hoses were not as flimsy as our other unit. Noisy, but that was to be expected from other reviews. August 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Buyers Remorse does not work at all worst air conditioner we have ever owned. Don't think that the expensive price is an indication of a quality product. Sitting in my living room sweating. No Kidding don't waste your money. August 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by very nice, easy to assemble, cools my area (large) well, I do have to empty the water reservoir, VERY happy with the purchase, have a smaller one with only 1 exhaust hose this one works MUCH better. NOT loud August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cools but doesn't chill as hoped Living in a refurbished attic apartment, it goes without saying, it gets very hot in here In the summers. The Avallon 14,000btu serves its purpose well enough but I was hoping it would chill the room it's used in like a walk-in freezer. Perhaps it would do that in a 1st or 2nd floor apartment where it doesn't heat up like an attic apartment does. The invisimist design works like a charm though. I've yet to see any condensation even in the tube in back, let alone where it mists out the window. I love not having to empty any water trays or reservoirs! It was a fairly easy set-up in all but be sure to install the invisimist tubing before attaching and installing the outtake hose. This isn't mentioned until later on in the instructions AFTER showing how to attach the intake and outtake hoses. So If you're setting up step by step, you'll have to undo the outtake exhaust hose and redo it again with the invisimist attached. This is an instructions manual FAIL, obviously. My only real annoyance is with the buzzing noise the air conditioner makes when it is running. I didn't expect the machine to be quiet but the buzzing noise can get downright annoying at times. Im not sure if this is normal or if I just happened to get a noisier one but I'm thinking of putting it on a wood platform of sorts in the hope it just needs more stability apart from the rug it's sitting on in my wall to wall carpeted apartment. As far as the window kit goes, I did have to saw a bit of it off in order to fit it in my 20" window frame but that was no big deal considering the plastic is a bit flimsy (a general complaint in all portable ac reviews I've read- not only Avallon brand). It can be done with a steak knife though! Actually, the kit did fit my window, but with the extension in it(which is necessary) it covered one of the holes for the hose to attach to and blow out/in, so sawing was necessary. An added touch was the extra window kit extension piece that was included should you want or need to move it to another room where the window may be a different size. All in all I'd say the Avallon is a good product but for the $600.00+ I spent on an air conditioner, I guess I was expecting no issues whatsoever. I do reasonably expect it to last for some time, considering the price of it. As a first time portable ac owner, this is my hope. Oh, one more good thing, it does drop the temp four degrees within five or less minutes which is very nice when coming home to a sweltering apartment. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Meets expectations The unit was easy to assemble and install. I'm guessing the auto drain function works, I haven't had to drain or touch anything. My electric bill is no higher then when I had two window units (5K BTU ea) running. This unit replaced each of those. It cools my whole downstairs area. The only draw back is that it is noisy while running. I would buy another one if needed. Overall I can say that it met my expectations June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hard working AC I have a 2000 sq foot shop in a metal building with moderate insulation. Before installing the AC, inside temperatures got to about 5F less than peak outside temp. This application is asking the AC to do about 4X what it was designed for. With it running all day, the shop is now about 5-8F cooler than before, and the humidity about 10% lower. It blows 55F air out the vent, which is about all you can ask. Before when it was 100F outside and 45% humidity, inside the shop was 95F and 45%. With the AC it's now 89F and 35% humidity inside. That's a big difference to me. I only considered dual hose units, as single hose units use conditioned air to cool the condenser and blow that outside. Well, duh, if I wanted outside air sucked into the room I'd open a window. Single hose units have NO ADVANTAGE over dual hose that operate more like a split unit. You can always make a single hose installation out of a dual hose unit by simply not using the intake hose. BE AWARE, some manufacturers sell dual hose units that are actually 2 exhaust hoses and no intake. That's the same as a single hose unit with a bigger hose. Yes, I am an engineer nerd. June 21, 2016
