Dual hose

Does this unit require two holes through the walls for venting and intake?
Asked by: Chris
Yes. If you use it with only the exhaust hose going out, you will be venting out the cool air from your room, and thereby losing all of the benefits of a dual hose system! It comes with a window kit for both hoses, and you can customize the size of that window kit to fit your window. Those two hoses only deal with getting rid of the hot air from the hot side of the AC system. The cold half of this AC only intakes your room air, cools it, then returns it to your room.

Eco-Friendly 13,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner with Dehumidifier is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I have been using this unit for a few weeks... I have been using this unit for a few weeks now and I have had my problems with it. First, there is supposed to be a safety switch that turns off the unit when it is full of condensate water. I came home to a wet puddle floor and after laying the unit on its back to inspect the tank for shipping damage, that safety switch started working.... At first, other than that, it seemed to work fine.Now I have discovered that the controls (it is controlled by a wireless remote only) I believe what is happening is that while I change the temperature or mode by remote, and that remote shows what setting I desire, that if the unit did not get good signal when I made the change, that it will continue operating as previously programmed regardless of what the display says. [It seems that I changed the setting but it continues to operate on the previous setting]I am considering returning this for another brand. It was a good price value, but the operational faults are less reliable than I am comfortable with.This is my first portable, I am replacing a window unit.

The place where it is set up has to have access to a window (preferable secure so no one can break into your house) and an electrical outlet close too (since you are not supposed to use extension cords). After you have all of that, when it is hooked up it is powerful and the fan (which can be used without having to have the window open) is the most powerful fan that I have had. It seems to have a cooling breeze. I have not used the dehumidifier yet. I like it and made in USA (Calif). It also is fairly quiet.

When I first turned it on it would not blow out any cold air, only warm air. I contacted Whynter and they told me they would email me troubleshooting instruction in a day or two, still have not received them but it's only been a day, but it did start blowing cold air, I think it took a while for the compressor to kick in? It does not cool very well, not nearly as well as window units with half the BTUs. I had a 5000 BTU window unit that cooled better than this 13,000 BTU unit, maybe if the troubleshooting instructions come it will give me an answer. It is very heavy so beware of that if you have to take it upstairs, it rolls on carpet but not very easily. I wish I wouldn't have purchased this but I did so it will have to do.

I've had it in a shed with rather poor conditions for over a year and it's working like the day I installed it. It's not a conventional looking portable which may be why it works well. I have it cooling about 360 sq ft of space that gets up around a 100 during the worst days. I normally achieve about 78 degrees at full power in around 4 hours. Not bad in my books. Not much noise as a window a/c so that's a good thing.

We put this in our master bedroom to replace an older 10,000 BTU unit. First this unit is way louder than our previous unit. Our older single hose unit cooled better and seemed to keep the humidity down better. After using this for a couple weeks I noticed that water is leaking from the unit somewhere underneath. Fortunately I discovered it before it damaged our wood floors. I checked the drain hose etc... and it is not leaking from there. I called home depot for a replacement and they were fairly helpful on getting a replacement ordered. I have not received the new unit yet, but I am giving this the benefit of doubt that maybe it was just damaged in shipping, and hopefully the new unit works great. I will update review after installing the new unit.

I have it in an upstairs bedroom 12x15 size room. I turn it on 2 hours prior to going to bed and close the door. The room is cold when going to bed and leave the door open with this air conditioner still on. In the morning the room, hallway, two other bedrooms and two bathrooms are all cool. The upstairs is cooler in the mornings than downstairs. I have it off in the daytime and the room stays cooler than it did before having this air conditioner. The appearance of it in the bedroom window is not bad and I can close curtains and blinds and the unit is all you see but the small size of it and darker color doesn’t make it stand out like a sore thumb. Definitely suggest using insulation tape. Happy with my purchase.
