Answer: 
Just a regular AC outlet but if there is another large power using appliance on the same breaker you will probably have to use a heavy duty extension cord to reach another outlet that has less load on it. This unit draws less that 10 amps.

The unit plugs into a 110 volt household outlet, it does not use or need 220, however it would be best if this unit is the only appliance on that line/outlet.

Answer: 
Yes you need to have two 5" diameter holes cut to the outside one for intake and one for exhaust (hot air).
If you have a window you only need to se the supplied adapter for the venting.

Answer: 
No you will have to cut two holes... It's worth it the single duct AC units have to run more because they suck in outdoor air into your home and that means the air conditioner is fighting it's self to try and cool your living space.

Dual Hose

This question is from 14,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner with Dehumidifer and Remote
Asked by
Read all my Q&A
June 25, 2015
I've read about negative pressure in several reviews, that this dual hose system resolves it. It seems to me that if the intake hose is simply placed in a cool spot in the room, the A/C would then cool already cool air. The intake draws no more air than the exhaust expels, correct?

I can't use a window. My only window's nearly at ceiling height and far too narrow for the ducting. Horizontal slide. I have to cut a hole in drywall to run the exhaust into an already very hot attic. I don't want to draw air (hot and dirty) from that attic.

Open to opinions, views and suggestions.

Tkx!!

Answer: 
I have tried using only the exhaust hose at first. Your idea is logical but it is not designed to work that way. It creates a lot of negative pressure that way and ends up drawing in a ton of hot air from outside everytime you open a door. In my experience it functions must better with both an intake and an exhaust hose to the outside.

Answer: 
I forgot to mention this in my previous answer.---This unit uses the exhaust hot air to evaporate/dispel the water formed when humid/hot air is cooled. Blowing this water into your attic is not a good idea. If you must use the attic vent the exhaust hose to the outside using a short duct like you would a bathroom fan.

Answer: 
First off your confused as to the air flow. There are two blowers in this unit. One blower pulls air in the intake hose, this air takes heat away from the "condenser (hot) compressor area" and expels this heat out the exhaust hose. Another blower pulls hot humid air in the room through the "evaporator" (cold) and blows it back into the room cold. This is more efficient then using air in the room that you Read More
First off your confused as to the air flow. There are two blowers in this unit.

Another blower pulls hot humid air in the room through the "evaporator" (cold) and blows it back into the room cold. This is more efficient then using air in the room that you are paying to cool and then blowing it out the window (or attic in your case). If you must use the attic how about ducting that hot air out a vent much like you would a bathroom vent? Could you also use the same principal for the intake hose possibly under an eve to keep out rain with a screen to prevent bugs?
I would try to use that window. This unit can be vented vertically too. Read Less

Sure if you have a window I can't see why not but you might want to use 2 if your garage is larger then 600 square feet. If your garage is not insulated forget about it though you'll simply waste your money buying any AC unit.

Answer: 
As long as you can vent the two hoses outside somehow I do not see a problem. Depending on what you do in the workshop might require cleaning the filter (wood dust, metal filings, etc.) more often. Also if using flammable or toxic glues, paints, adhesives, etc. You would want to vent that workshop thus defeating the efficiency/purpose of AC.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 92 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It solved my problem... There is a room in my house that was impossible to keep cool. Putting this portable AC unit in there solved the problem. The AC was ready to go, the kit to position the exhaust and intake in a window was a bit tricky, but it was doable after I figured out I needed duct-work tape (hot/cold). I took advice from other review sites and insulated the exhaust air duct, which makes the room cooler still. The person who sleeps in that room says it is 100% improvement. My problem is solved. I will be watching the electric bill to see if I have traded one problem for another .... June 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by REALLY DOES A GREAT JOB!!! Our AC went out and we got this for a temporary fix. Works GREAT. House of 1600 sq ft - all but 2 rooms on opposite end stay COLD. Hoses are an eyesore but must be necessary. Piece that the hose goes into didn't fit our window...so we had to cut the long one. Not really a big deal. Going to pick up 2 more...I for my bedroom and one for the garage. June 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ok so far... It is ok. It blows cold air and fits vertically. It takes several hours to reduce the temps in my living room / dining room combo. I took a photo but this system is not letting me post it April 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does a great job!! We are full time rv'ers in a 38' fifth wheel in phoenix AZ. Heat has been in the upper 90's this week and this has kept it very cool inide.. Even too cold at times.. No problems with unit in 3 months we've had it.. April 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A very nice Air Conditioner This air conditioner performs well. Last year I purchased another brand a/c identical in it's specifications and performance but that well known brand performed poorly in comparison to this unit. The main problem with the other air conditioner was that it was very noisy and it's cooling ability dropped off over time. I contacted Customer Service with the "noise" problem and was told that "if the problem didn't affect the devices performance they could not send a Service Tech". So I sold it. This Whynter 14000 btu system performs well. It cools my entire 500 sq. ft. area quickly and is quiet and the installation was very easy. To be honest the quality and design could stand a little upgrading but overall this is a very nice system for the money. May 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Unit Makes the room Cold Was very easy to install. So far so good does what it's suppose to do. Get's the 500 square foot room cold. Looks nice and is not real loud. Very happy with the purchase. June 2, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by not for everyone We need this to cool a loft area. It does that. The hoses are an eyesore. The noise level is OK as it is not a sleeping area. Some say that they could sleep thru the noise that it creates, not me. We do not have a moisture issue so don't expect there to be much draining the condensate pan if there is one. Tough decision between this and a window unit as far as efficiency vs sound and looks, we didn't have a choice. The hose panel for the window is not long enough for a patio door. We had a piece of wood cut to cover the additional space. Easy to install - had it ready to run in a few minutes although we didn't run it for a day per the instructions (4 hours). June 23, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Better than nothing? I have to say I'm fairly disappointed with the cooling ability of this product. I switched to a portable AC since we have new windows, and a window AC seemed more problematic to install. Although the set-up on this AC was straight-forward, it simply does not seem to be powerful by comparison to my former 10,000 BTU window AC. I expected superior cooling, as it is 14,000 BTU, but it simply isn't the case. Although it cools the room somewhat, it only does so by setting the thermostat at the lowest possible temperature of 61F. If I could do so easily, I would return it, but after 2 weeks of trying to get my home office cool, it is simply meeting the minimum acceptable standard. Not recommended. July 7, 2015
