Can this be operated with intact window screens in a double hung window? Does the tank have to be emptied more than once a day on a very humid day?

Asked by: scrappy

12,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner with Dehumidifer and Remote is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 92.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, efficient, and cools very well... Quiet, efficient, and cools very well

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy Customer Very happy with this Air Conditioner. It was easy to put together and was running properly right from the start. The air doesn't seem as cold as my old "window" AC, which was huge, but it cools the room it's in. It's also quieter than the last AC I owned, which is a plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did a lot of research to find the right one and I found it. We ordered it at the Home Depot store, and delivered there. The whole process took less than a week and was very convenient. Right after we received it we had a 104 degree day. It kept our kitchen, dinning room and living room at 79 degrees all day on low setting. Since then I have noted that it keeps the inside of the rooms at a fairly consistant 25 degrees cooler than the outside. It is as loud as I expected and the dishwasher is louder. It was very easy to set up, and looks fine where it is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but room for improvement We haven't yet had enough heat to put this unit to the test, but so far it seems well constructed, for the most part. The window attachment is indeed plastic, but it seems sturdier to me than others have reported and it fits either of the windows shown in my photo. I will invest in some insulated weather stripping for the window, however. I agree that the addition of vertical adjustment on the vent of this unit would make sense. It's a curious shortcoming, and I'm wondering if I'll need to place the unit on some pedestal or otherwise direct the airflow upwards to balance the room's air temperature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Whynter has not disappointed us so far? This is the 2nd Whnyter Aircon I bought and it works well, a 12000 BTU and it cools a 440 sq ft dining room/living room with enough to spare. We turn it to 74 degrees and it's very comfy - can crank it for sure if we want it cooler. One thing - the description online says "no drain hose connection" but it has one for sure. Connect a standard garden hose width (then cut lengh to size) to a small bucket or suitable container as it does drain water from the condensation (we're in San Francisco Bay Area/Peninsula). Funny cuz the 10K btu unit in the bedroom does not drain any water at all. Sound is standard for any portable unit of this type.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased with the cooling effect and the eco-friendly features Very effective cooling for our older home. The only draw back is the installation into the window. The venting attachment into the window is lightweight plastic and will need modification to hold it in place and to provide a better seal when we install it again next season. Duct tape around the the plastic panel, as recommended in the instruction manual, did not seem like a good idea and we opted for foam strips instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A/C Bliss This is my second portable A/C. Nice enough look, easy to install, cools quickly and is fairly quiet compared to my first one. I recommend foam insulation tape, or similar, when installing the discharge panel in window to reduce any air leakage. I love the fact that I don't have to haul buckets of water out as with my other A/C. A real back-saver. Haven't had to put it thru our 100 degree weather yet, but seems to put out enough that it will handle the load. Overall pleased at this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is the best one of these I have seen. I got this unit for my bedroom, which by design in my apartment is cut off from the living room a/c by a corner and a hallway. No cold air was getting in there. I did my research and I found this one. It works AMAZINGLY! I live in so/cal and the 100+ degree days are brutal, but this unit will cool my entire 300+ sq foot room in about 5-7 min on high then if I leave the door open, it cools the rest of the apartment too (800+ sq feet). The unit doesn't drip or leak, but can be a bit difficult to empty because the drip hole is level with the floor. I couldn't get a bowl in there, so i just put down a thick layer of paper towel and had it soak into there, which worked well. The only negative I can really say is that it can be a bit loud. I don't really mind but I can see if your a light sleeper and plan on having it on all night, I can see how someone might complain. Otherwise, it's a pretty amazing A/C
