Answers

The included window kit is designed to fit most standard vertically or horizontally sliding windows and measures, 6.5" W x 20" L (minimum), 46" (maximum). <br><br> Since windows come in different sizes, some customization may be needed when installing the accessories. If the included panel with the hose cut outs is too long to fit in your window or door opening, most customers cut the panel to size. The panel can be cut down to a minimum of 16"; we recommend making sure not to cut into the hose cutouts or screw holes. <br><br> Our Consumer Support Team is available Monday - Friday 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM PST at 1-866-WHYNTER (1-866-949-6837) and at support@whynter.com should you have additional questions.

Asked by Korey May 3, 2020

Answers

The manual says "Don't use when temps outside are below 40 degrees F" where it doesn't have any "defrost" features. I pushed my luck and ran it for awhile around such temps, but suddenly heard something inside that I believe was ice hitting a fan. I instantly turned it off and let it thaw the possible ice for several hours before trying it again. I lucked out not damaging the fan, but that's what you'll be risking by doing that. The hoses are the same diameter on this unit.

Asked by al September 9, 2019

Answers

Not fully sure if I understand the "air exchange" unit in the house, is that like a central furnace but just put on "fan only" mode? That should be fine circulating air thru the house and perhaps spreading the cooled air created by the AC unit. However if that "air exchange" unit circulates outside air into the house, that would be the same as using this with only 1 vent hose for sending hot air outside but constantly bringing in outside air. That may make you lose 1/2 the cooling this does by bringing in warm outside air into the room or house while trying to cool the place as well. Many AC units are sold with only the 1 vent hose going to the window, but many don't think about the fact that for any hot air sent out the window, an equal amount or air must come back in (whether from the attic, window vents, dryer vent, it finds a way in). So if it's 100 degrees outside and you want to cool the house, how good is it to be bringing in 100 degree air from outside? Not very good. So that's where having 2 hoses on the AC unit is much better where warm air comes in thru one and goes out the second, but it never mixes in the house or rooms air. The isolation like that I compare to "keeping the fridge door closed" so the cool space can stay isolated and cool rather than "leaving the fridge door open" allowing hot and cool air to be mixing constantly (and the fridge never keeps up in that condition). So just as most realize things like "leaving the fridge door open" and driving a car with AC on and windows down doesn't work well, the single vent hose units don't work well either. Think about that while running the AC unit.

Can this unit be vented out of the room into a ceiling overhead?

Asked by Joe September 6, 2019

Answers

No, it must be vented to the outside.

What are the dimensions of the window exhaust kit at its smallest size?

Asked by YoMama August 22, 2019
5
Answers

You can just run the two 6'' ducts out of your window if you want. Or buy a small piece of wood or plastic and cut a hole in it and put the ducts in there. You can even run just one duct but it will suck air out of your room instead of cycling it through the AC.

Unit Cuts Out Often inn air Condition and blows heat. Is there any way to fix that?

I was tired of the recent heat waves in coastal Southern California, so I decided to go with this unit. It cooled my 600-square-foot apartment down to 73°F in about four hours with an outside temperature of 88°F. It has kept the apartment at a constant 73°F since installation and is quiet and efficient. We’ll see about the products longevity, but so far I am very pleased with this purchase.

Bettter of two portable air conditioners

With my San Francisco Bay Area mobile home sometimes being very hot due to the metal, during cold months I run and daily twice empty my two 60 pint dehumidifiers, and run the Whytner for the family, living room, kitchen, and dining rooms when hot. I appreciate the full evaporation feature, since my other smaller brand master bedroom AC does not have this feature and I have to empty the 2 1/2 gallon catch bucket twice daily. I am considering a second 14,000 btu Whytner AC purchase with exhaust hose insulation, with the smaller AC to be moved to another bedroom. As the owner of three portable air conditioner's, this is the only brand I will be purchasing in the future thanks to its features and efficiency.

Great solution for warming and cooling our lanai! We have the ezbreeze (plastic) window system over the screens, but in SC it's still too cold in winter and too hot in summer (ezbreeze opened) to be in the room comfortably (as well as for our cat!). We haven't been through summer with it yet, but hoping it will cool at least the same 20 degrees as it's heated the room this winter. The room went from 40 to 60 in the recent cold mornings here! We did buy the 14,000 btu even though the Lanai is only 240 sq ft, due to the lack of insulation in the aluminum and screened Lanai. One "surprise"...we have had to empty the condensation drain every few days. We expected that in summer, but not in winter. I guess it's more humid in the room than we thought! Overall, very happy with the purchase!

Very simply put this is the worst designed product I have purchased in some time. The vent hoses CANNOT be removed without breaking the housing. The Whynter company refuses to acknowledge their poor design (this is a systemic problem reported often said a customer service rep) but they refuse to warranty the broken housing that removing the hose connections causes. In short try another product or manufacturer - one that stands behind it's products because Whynter does NOT!

Arrived in good condition, effectively packaged. Well built. The remote is easy to use. Being used in a living room, that has a very high ceiling. I live in the US southeast, where it gets into high/low 90's, so it does get a test. Winter will be here soon, so I can't review the heat portion yet. I have 2 other portable units, that are not Whynter (1 upstairs) and for me this was a tricky install. A youtube video helped. I notice that the humidity level is less, in a bedroom off the living room. Overall I like this unit. My pics are darker than I had hoped for. Would I buy this Whynter again? Well I'm thinking of selling one of the other units from a recent purchase and replacing it with a Whynter.

The main problem with this air conditioner is no matter where you adjust the "flow director," most of the cooled air will go up, and not out. Use this deflector and you can direct the majority of the airflow. After adjusting the slide adjustment to the unit's deflector width, use clear packing tape to secure the sides and you're ready to go! When installed, you'll only be able to open the air conditioner unit's "air deflector' to the second vent opening, but that's OK because most of the air usually went directly up anyway!

Defective unit and bad customer service
I picked up this portable A/C yesterday and this morning I noticed that the LED screen is defective. I called Home Depot CS and they directed me to Whynter. I called Whynter and they said that they can send the part (LED screen) but I have to install it myself. This unit is very heavy and I don't want to deal with this kind of hassle and waste of time! I'm returning this item and will not ever buy from Home Depot nor from Whynter! Really bad customer service.
