Pros

  • Real Eco-Friendly Product: A lot of effort went into designing the Whynter GREEN ARC-14S portable air conditioner. It is environment-friendly, has no CFC (damages the ozone layer and worsens climate change), and utilizes GREEN Are-410A refrigerant. It is also made with lead-free RoHS-compliant parts; another pointer to preserving the environment is a major goal for this brand.
  • Efficiency via Sophisticated Technology: Another major benefit of this air conditioner is that it can utilize and re-use moisture due to its advanced auto drain system in it. This moisture is collected when the cooling unit is working to cool the environment. In addition, to speed up cooling, there is a dual hose that comes with the package. Hence, it can provide cooling for an area of up to 500 square feet.
  • Competent Unit: This air conditioner can provide lasting cooling for as much as 500 square feet of space. That means you can use it in any of your spaces.
  • Durability: It has a cover with a pocket that provides maximum protection for the unit and the other parts like the window kit, exhaust hose (which has a maximum length of 60 inches), user manual, and remote control. The same cover also protects from dirt, dust, and other particles that might want to gather on the unit wherever it is fixed.
  • Speed: As a result of the fact that this air conditioner unit comes with a dual hose, it can provide cooling for a room faster than other similar models in the same niche.

Cons

  • Excessive Accessories: Some customers have complained that the product has too many accessories to be purchased separately. These include the 3M antimicrobial filter, window slide bars, hose extender sets, exhaust hose, etc.
  • Air Flow Issues: Some customers also have complaints regarding airflow. For such customers, the complaint is that the airflow is not directional. For some other customers, the problem is that the air conditioning unit produces hot air when it releases cool air.
