The air conditioner uses the patented auto drain or self-evaporative technology which exhausts condensation automatically in most environments. Please note that if the humidity is very high, the auto drain function will still exhaust the majority of the moisture. The remaining moisture will be collected in the water tank at the base of the air conditioner and continue to self-evaporate until the tank becomes full and requires manual drainage. A optional drain bucket accessory is available.

What is the DOE Rating of the air conditioner ? Please advise. Thank you, Neal

The carton and the user manual that came with it says SACC DOE BTU rating is 10,300. I have no clue where the Whynter Rep got 8,400 for DOE BTU. But I would go by the literature that's being now shipped out with the product. The SACC or DOE rating is the most recent and accurate measure of actual cooling capacity for portable air conditioners and this model has one if the highest numbers.

This product has the highest SACC/DOE BTU rating if you go by what is printed on its shipping carton and its accompanying owner manual. Its is listed there with a tested performance of 10,300 SACC BTU. There is much confusion even among Whynter reps what the rating is with even some stating its 8k BTU here. This performance rating is measured by the DOE and not the manufacturer. It is a better measure of the cooling capacity of portable air conditioners than the pre1917 ASHRAE standard. It takes into account that portables actual cooling capacity is diminished by outside heat seeping in and limiting how cold the AC can lower room temoerature. The only caveat is I just received my order so I will update this review if the AC unit performs according to its rated performance as I have more experience with it.

Customer review from whynter.com logo
Solid A/C; 14,000 BTU delivered. Biggest disappointment : I paid for a remote that does not work from day 1. Obviously, i can manually operate but why provide a remote that is sub par? Did not bother to call. Too much hassle. I would have given a 5 but i feel cheated and the delivered box was practically in pieces .

The dehumidifier needs to be drained every 15-20 minutes. Something is wrong with the AC because I have two others just like it that haven’t needed to be drained yet.

This air conditioner is amazing. It has booked down half of my house and very easy to set up. I set it up in a room that had already reached 95 degrees by 11:09am. Within 30 minutes it was much cooler and liveable. The ship time took less than 48 hours. We were suffering with heat and now leave it on so when it gets above 70 degrees it automatically turns on. The air conditioner is in a 609 square foot room!
