does this unit plug in with regular 110 wall plug

Can I buy insulated hose, there is a fair amount of heat on my exhaust hose. I'm sure insulated hose would eliminate the problem

Asked by: hovernaut
You can but it has to be of the flexible type, but by doing this it is going to get bulky and may need more room and becomes unsightly. But if looks don't matter, go for it.

Will this unit turn itself off if the unit gets too hot, but then turn back on so it won't trip the breaker?

Asked by: Buzz
Yes it should, because there are many different protections built into it. Get the extended warranty though. My AC just went after only one year. I had purchased two of the 14kw with heat. God Bless.

Customer Reviews

14,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner with Dehumidifier, Heat and Remote is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased Been using this unit for about a month and very pleased. OFF-ON memory is smart. If you must turn the unit OFF then back ON, all the settings will be the same as before. Very convenient. Checked water plug in back of unit weekly. Not a drop of water to be drained. Filter installation diagram is a bit confusing, but after trial and error figured it out. Filters easy to remove and clean. After removing and washing, filters will be completely dry in about 10 minutes. NOTE: Check unit amperage and your home electrical system before buying. Adding the unit to an older home on a 15 amp circuit breaker may be problematic.

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 Very efficient at cooling We got ours one week ago and have not used the heater function, but it cools very effectively. We bought it for a bedroom of about 275 sf that suffers the scorching sun of West Central Florida all day. After setting it up, it cooled that room from 83 degrees F to 76 degrees F in about 20 minutes. We gave it 5 stars as it cools excellently. However, there are things about it that we feel will help others. Some reviewers here and different sites indicated that it was loud. How loud, what my question at the time. This is by no means scientific, but relatively speaking it is no louder than most window units or a maybe a big stand up fan. The loudest it gets of course is when the compressor is running. Neither of us has lost sleep from the sound, but everyone is different. One thing that did keep up us was the LED readout. It's pretty bright and there is no function to dim it. We had to jury rig something to cover it up. One suggestion I would impart and wish I had known this, when the unit arrives take the package of screws provided with the unit and go purchase new ones of better quality. I don't know what it is with Chinese hardware but their metals are quite often soft and cheap and the screw heads can easily strip out if one is not super careful. You're likely better off going to the hardware store, paying a bit more and changing out what comes with the unit. Might want to buy some weather stripping for the window component while you're there. The window component is on the lame side. It's really thin plastic and rather ill fitting in a vinyl window. We had to close the gaps with weather stripping. Also, it does not remain in the window well while you are setting it up in the window. Ours would have fallen out the the ground two stories below had it not been for the screen. Other than that, the thing is overall pretty fast and easy to set up. We love how it cools and the unit is pretty sharp looking too. Moves around easily as well. For the dough, however, they could upgrade the 'little things', like make the window component out of better plastic and improve the design, give one some decent hardware at the get-go, and have a means to dim or cover that bright LED.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good buy -- Strongly recommended This unit was purchased for use in an attached two-car garage located in south Texas. The garage has a fully finished interior with insulated garage doors (stryofoam), no less than R-21 in the outer wall, and R-30 in the attic space above the garage. Prior to purchasing this unit, it was not uncommon to have the interior temperature in the garage at 95+ degrees, largely due to two east-facing garage doors. (As mentioned, these doors are insulated with sytrofoam inserts.) Now, on the hottest days, the interior temperate never exceeds 85 (which is more than tolerable in South Texas!). This unit is attractive, appears to be energy efficient (nice SEER and kw/hr ratings), is reasonably quiet, and very easy to install or move/remove as needed. Again, most importantly, it cools my 450 square feet garage very well. Hope this helps you in your decision.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleek design, but lacking the technology to back it up. It looks good and cools nearly my entire town home if I leave it on 24/7, very impressive. Haven't had a chance to use the heater or dehumidifier yet. Cons - hoses are hard to unclip if you do intend to use the other features. The window adapter is too short by most any window's standards, so you'll have to rig your own contraption if you need more than 18 inches (lame! who has windows that small anyway?!?). If the settings on the remote don't match the settings on the machine (because you've manually adjusted the settings) the unit will switch to whatever the last setting on the remote is, so you'll have to reset it. The timer is a pain, I wish I could set it for specific times of the day. Surprisingly, I didn't notice that there is NOT a hepa filter on this which seem kind of standard for any system. And while I haven't had to drain it yet, I'm not sure how they expect me to with a drain mere millimeters off the ground (did I mention my unit weighs almost as much as I do and is upstairs on carpet?...will not enjoy the day I do have to drain it!) I'd return it if I could.

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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the purchase. I was able to try out the heat function first when the unit came. It provides supplemental heat which is handy but the drain pan does have to be emptied. So far, the cooling function seems to be working well also. With the unit on cooling the water is evaporated to the outside so you don't have to worry about the drain. I think considering what space I am trying to cool the unit will be plenty adequate for the job. The only negative I have is the noise level but that is to be expected.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer bewar We purchased this unit two years ago and the compressor has already went out. The compressor is still under warranty but Whynter wants you to pay shipping to and from California for repair which comes out to several hundred dollars. Customer service has been solute nightmare. Mark my words...you will regret this purchase!
