Q:is there auto shut off to prevent overflow?
by|Aug 9, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  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 2-pint water tank at the base of the air conditioner and continue to self-evaporate until the tank becomes full and requires manual drainage. The compressor will stop operation to prevent leaking. There is also a gravity drain option.<br> If you have additional questions, our Customer 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.

    Q:How big is the water reservoir? How can you check the level?

    A:  It's approximately 2 pints. <br><br> 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.<br><br> If continuous drainage is necessary, a hose can be installed to the upper drain port for continuous gravity drainage. When continuous drainage is set up, the collected moisture will be drained through the hose and not drain down into the water tank and will not self-evaporate. <br><br> The air conditioner operates more efficiently without continuous drainage set up as the self-evaporative system recirculates the moisture collected in the tank over the internal condenser coils which help create cooler air. <br><br> If you have additional questions, our Customer 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.

        Q:Can I install this unit in a sliding window?
        by|Jun 14, 2021
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  No, this is a portable unit with an exhaust insert that must be be placed in a window opening. The window insert is for a double hung wooden window. If you want to use it in a sliding window you will have to create from wood or plastic an insert for the window opening to accept the exhaust hose. The insert must fill the entire opening to keep out the outside hot air, and have a port to accept the hose. Mike

        by|Jun 14, 2021

        A:  Hi Tyson, <br><br> 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 solid window kit slide bar panels do not completely cover your window or door opening, most customers purchase an additional window kit and use both sets. Alternately, a customized longer solid slide bar panel can be made by cutting Plexiglas or PVC plastic to size to be used with the panel with the hose cut outs of the original window kit. <br><br> If you have additional questions, our Customer 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.

          Does everything one would expect of it in a clean and simple fashion. Setup was easy. Only "complaints" are the noise while sleeping, this isn't a specific machine complaint but the reality of any A/C inside of a room and the brightness of the front lights. Again, these aren't changing the effectiveness of the machine in any way but cosmetic issues one should be aware of. Otherwise it has been exactly what I was looking for in a portable A/C.

          I bought this unit (June 2019) to replace a large window unit that had become too much for me to put in the window. It cools my 30x16 room easily. I'm sure it will cool my adjacent rooms too. It's just as noisy, if not a little more than a window unit, but not a negative. I only gave it 4 stars because of the window panel. I'd give 4.5 stars but I can't. I installed the panel in a wood double hung window. I was disappointed with it because it left a large gap on the small panel extension where it meets the lower sash. I used foam pipe insulation to cover the top and bottom of the panel and that solved the problem with the gap. I also had to buy foam to fill the void between the two sashes (between the glass) to keep the cool air inside and the bug out. This last problem might be because I have old wood windows, but the panel didn't clear the window stool enough to allow the hoses to connect to the panel. Adding the pipe insulation on the bottom of the panel raised it enough to connect the hoses. Going forward, this unit will be easier and quicker to install and uninstall.

          Does what it's supposed to do!
          I live near Atlanta with it's hot and humid summers. I do a fair amount of woodworking in my insulated double garage and last summer I couldn't work past 1 o'clock because it was too hot. I've had this A/C for 6 weeks now and LOVE IT. I don't have windows in the garage so I had to cut 2 holes thru the wall for the vents. This was not a problem and it worked out well. I have yet to empty the water pan with the condensate. Because of all the saw dust I produce, I use some cheap A/C filters to cover the interior air intake.

          Great AC, Works fine .easy setup,Get more BTUs than you need
          Delivery was fast, unpacked and waited more than 4 hours as instructed. Turned it on and works fine. It is quiet considering the compressor is inside the house. It was about the same as the window Ac we removed. Wish I bought the 1500btu though. The 1200 btu cools about the same as my 10000btu window unit.

          Quality item
          Purchased this AC unit to cool our sunroom ( 14X14) which is also a secondary living-tv room. The unit works well and keeps the room at 75 degrees on a 90 degree day. As some other people have mentioned I had to modify the installation for a 4 foot slider window. I used PVC board to extend the window adapter supplied (which was heavy plastic). The normal installation in double hung windows would be easy. I do recommend getting some foam tape rather than duct tape to weatherize around the window adapter- it does a neater job. Check the pictures for my installation. Also you might need a saw to cut the plastic window adapter to fit your window. I also installed it at the window so I could shut the screen to control the bugs. I also used a piece of black drainage pipe so the intake pipe would not suck in the expelled hot air from the unit. This works well. The black pipe fits right into the window adapter mounting. (see pics) The unit is a little noisier than a standard window AC unit but when you have an unique installation situation it does very well. We can still watch tv when it is on. As someone mentioned on a 90 degree day who cares about the white noise! If you can get by with a window unit and don't mind the unit sticking out of the window on the outside then I would recommend a standard window unit. From the outside you can hardly tell this unit is installed inside. (check pics) I ran this unit for 4 days with 60% humidity outside and checked it every morning- no water to drain. It has a system to use the water every AC unit makes and usually drips on the outside of your house to cool the unit itself. It seems to work very well. I do not understand why the other reviewer had to empty his unit after 3 hours unless he had it on the dehumidify setting. On this setting the unit has to be setup to drain the water all the time (like to a floor drain ). The unit is made to move from one room to another easier than a regular window AC unit. If you have regular double hung windows this will be easy with the supplied window kit. As i said I had a slider window and had to modify the installation. As a DYI person this was not a hard job but took about 3 hours including going to the box store and getting the PVC board, having them rip it and returning home and modifying the window adapter. At this time I also used the rest of the PVC board to adapt a second slider in the house if I would want to move the unit in the future.( I used the one inch cut off strips to make stop locks for the slider for security.) The PVC board worked well because my sunroom is white, the board is white and the window adapter supplied was white- it all matched well.(pics) --Conclusion- I like the unit. It is a little more money but the quality is there. It takes up some room inside and is a little noisier than a window unit, however if you have a room where a window unit is not possible or you don't want the eyesore of a window unit sticking out of a window this is the way to go. Also get the two hose units. The one hose unit uses your air conditioned air to cool the unit and then expels it outside. It seems the manufacturer did their homework on this unit. The remote is easy to use and also has the controls on the unit if you lose the remote or it breaks. If you do not have to modify the window space installation should be a snap. FYI- You can buy this unit other places on the web but boxing it back up and shipping it back would be a pain. It is worth the extra bucks to be able to take it back to your local Home Depot if you are not satisfied.

            Iraqi vet and civil engineer knows his portableACs
            Yes, I would have traded my in unit CHU (compartmentalized housing unit) AC in Iraq for this in a heartbeat. I've owned it for 3 years to supplement a rooms AC that I have found tricky to balance properly. It works as advertised, is durable, and well made. Yes, it takes time to set up if it's not a permanent solution. And yes, there the drainage can leak if you don't secure the drain hose securely. But that's the concept of portability. It's heavy though but has some wheels. Use a hand truck if you need to go long distances. If you have an electric socket or extension cord to plug into, this will work anywhere and everywhere.

              Everyone's favorite appliance in the house
              I've moved this thing around to all different rooms in the house and there isn't a room it can't cool quickly! It's everyone's favorite appliance. The key is the dual-hose design. Central AC and window units both put the condenser part outside of the house so that outside air can cool it off. The single-hose designs that were available in-store use inside air to cool the condenser and then exhausts it outside, meaning warm air gets drawn back into the room from elsewhere.
