If you were waiting for one of the more luxurious models on this list, then the Whynter ARC-14S 14,000 BTU Dual Hose , listed as best portable air conditioner, is for you. In terms of performance, there is no denying this model’s superiority. It can cool up to five hundred square feet and takes in one hundred pints of water.
The Whynter ARC-14S 14,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner wins the award for the quietest portable air conditioner on this list as well. If you struggle with insomnia, then you will not mind the investment a chilly, hum-free night of sleep.
The device comes with a filter that you can take out and wash, so you do not need to worry about buying more replaceable filters. This feature is also better for the environment since fewer spent filters will end up in landfills.
It also allows for precise thermostat control, instead of some of the simple three-model systems on the cheaper side of the fence. However, this increase in performance comes at a reasonably steep price — one Whynter ARC-14S 14,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner costs around six hundred dollars.
Generally, we only recommend this model for people who can afford it and want it for its performance, or for people who cannot stand the noise of any kind while they sleep. Otherwise, we think you will be better off with one of the more affordable models found earlier in the article.
