The specs say NO drain collection is provided. Is that a mistake? All the other units have a drain for those few times that you'd need to drain water.
Asked by: Steve
It has a drain, but I haven't needed to use it yet. I've only used it as an air conditioner (not as a dehumidifier), and I live in NY (as opposed to say Florida where the humidity is mostly 100%).

Can you vent this without using a window?

Can you vent this without using a window?
Asked by: Frosty
Yes you can. However you will need to drill holes in the wall large enough to accommodate the exoust pipes and purchase additional hardware separately. I did this for a different unit in a club basement. Mine was a long run. Additional items I purchased for the project: insulated pipe and booster blower for long pipe run and a large dryer vent for outside of house.

Customer Reviews

14,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner with Dehumidifier, Heat and Remote is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good purchase the front panel broke when I removed it from the box. I fixed it with hot glue. so be careful when unboxing it. the blower doesn't blow as hard as I would like for it to. the window exhaust kit takes more effort to assemble correctly than I'd like for it to. but it is a good unit. my studies on the internet say that it is top of the line. btw, it is amazing how not loud this thing is. the customer support is very helpful and they have people that speak ENGLISH as a primary language. big thumbs up for that! catch this unit when it is on sell for less than 500 dollars. fyi, this thing will make the lights flicker when the compressor kicks on. the caster make for easy moving around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the price! We replace an older model (without heat prior) it's for a large vaulted sun room and it gets hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's summer now and the room is very comfortable and the unit does the job! It's actually cold when the sun sets so we can lower it in the evening. Very satisfied and the price for what it offers is the best out there. It is self evaporating(nothing to empty) can't wait to use the heat function in the winter months to come. Wonderful product....exactly what we were looking for !! It's not too loud as we have a large screen TV in the room!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Temperamental machine I was limited with where I could place the unit, to cool a 360 sq ft area with 2 small bedrooms off the area. Where I first placed it, both hoses were attached, and in a sideways S formation. A friend who had a different brand 12,000, & was having much better success cooling the 1st floor of a brick house compared with my 2nd floor wooden house, he recommended that I not use the intake they hose. It made sense why make the unit work harder by taking in additional warm air? After a couple of hours, it appeared the 80F temp had stabilized but not gone down; it was 90F outside temp. The next step I took was to insulate the window panel the hoses were attached to, with still no futher results to the lower the room temp. Then I reviewed the manual, and noticed the words ..."the hoses should be as straight and short as possible...." I re-arranged where the unit was so the hose was strait. The next morning the room temp was down to 71F. I don't think it was entirely attributed to the new placement, because the 90F muggy weather had finally broke to cooler drier temps. I ordered the unit online, & after much effort to get it up my stairs to the 2nd floor (I am a 58 yr old woman with a bad case of rheumatoid arthritis). If I was younger & not so physically limited, my preference would be to return this unit and buy a new window air conditioner, but I am limited by how heavy the air conditioners can be (I had 2 5,600 BTU's 1 6,000 BTU A/C's & 1 8,000 previously). it is getting harder to put them in & out 2 times a year, so my options have become limited. I'm going to hope the new configuration works better through the next heat wave before my opportunity to return it ends.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bought this unit in 2012 My bedroom is 11X12 and it doesn't keep my room cool. I have called customer service because the heater cut off after 1-2 minutes and usually does come back on. The customer service rep told me to remove one of the hoses and use the cover cap to cover up the hole. It actually worked for 2 days but after that it went back to cutting off in 1-2 minutes. It has NEVER cool my room; just made it a "little" comfortable. The heating part NEVER warm my room.(even when it was staying on). It is bigger than most portable unit and has a higher BTU so I really thought it would work well. It cools poorly and heats badly. All in all I wished I had picked another unit. I would not recommend this unit

My room is really less than 200 square feet. The unit says it cools up to 500 sq. ft. I thought my room would be very cold, and I wake up sweating. It's also a bit noisier than expected. I can't really recommend this unit.
