Q: How long is the window exhaust kit? Will it fit a 57 inch tall window that opens horizontally?

submitted by Extra tall window - 2 years ago
  • A: my cooler is shorting out and won't stay on

    submitted byrich - 8 months ago
  • A: 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). 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.

Q: Per the owners manual, "this unit uses heat pump for heating and the heating mode does not work when temperature is below 45F." Is 45F the temperature inside where it is being used or outside temp?

submitted by isak - 2 months ago
  • A: The room temperature needs to be above 45F. Please use the included cover to block the intake hose to prevent the unit from pulling in cold air from outside.

Q: When using the ac function, does the unit shut off when it reaches the desired temperature? Or does it run continuously?

submitted by isak - 4 years ago
  • A: The unit has a thermostat which controls the compressor of the air conditioner. When the set temperature is reached, the compressor (cooling function) of the unit turns off but the fan continues to run to circulate the air inside the room to maintain the set temperature.

This kept my 800 sq ft loft on the 3rd floor, comfortable during the insane 118 degree heatwave last summer in Portland. Powerful and much better than a single hose. Buy this!

Does the job of keeping the area I bought it for cool. I am disappointed that it doesn't have a eco mode. So it just keeps running even when the room's set temperature is met. Also the vents that go in the window have nothing to prevent insects from getting in it. Which here is the south is a major issue.
1 reply from Whynter CS team - 9 months ago
Hi there, Thanks for your feedback regarding your air conditioner. The air conditioner has a 5° F temperature cushion; when reaching 5° F of the set temperature, the compressor shuts off but the fan runs continuously to circulate the air in the room to maintain the set temperature and prevent the compressor from running too frequently. Also, the window screen can be left in place to prevent insects from entering the unit. At Whynter, we constantly aim to provide superior products and a better customer experience. If you have additional questions or comments, please visit our website to contact our Customer Support Team, available Monday - Friday 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM PST. We are here to provide support and ensure you will be satisfied with your Whynter product.

I have had this air conditioner for a few years. I bought it because it was recommended by Consumer Reports due to its double hose intake and exhaust feature. I am so glad I did. It cools the whole downstairs of my home. Is continually cooling with so far no condensation.

Put it in the bedroom. It cools quickly and not too noisy. Will probablyput it downstairs next year where it will cool a larger space and get a smaller unit for the bedroom.

This item works very well it cooled my bedroom night & day no matter how hot it was outside.I live in the deep south of Mississippi & it can get really really hot. The only problem I had with this item was the draining system. Condensate water would build up quick.what I found helpful was elevating the unit,adding a hose used on a washing machine & placing the hose in a 5 gallon jug & it worked great after that.

I use this in vermont for the 600SF living area, third floor of a 4 floor building, unit works fine, its not too loud, but does not seam to have to cooling power of a 1200BTU window unit, go 14000BTU and this dual hose is key. Crazy how the single hose units suck out the cool air while pulling hot air from the outside in.

Excellent cold, excellent heat, plus dehumidifier and fan-only for drying clothes. The dual vent ducts are large, but good quality, not flimsy. They are essential, so plan ahead. Read manual (which could be better). Heat/cool power is impressive, our unit is in (small) room, only runs briefly before desired temp is reached. Draws about 9 amps at 125 volts, max.

I recently purchased the Whytner dual hose 12,000 btu . If your home is hot and you don't have A/C it's a must buy!!! It's easy to assemble and it will cool you're room less than 30 mins, I highly recommend this product , it's a bit pricey but worth every penny

Whynter is a good brand for portable air con units and this is no exception. The hose attachments are good, and so is the cooling! Was surprised to have this delivered within 2 days when the estimate was 5-10 days. Very impressed. The price was good and being able to return it to a bricks-and-mortar store if needed (which it isn't) were two big sellers for me. People seem pretty volatile in their reviews of air conditioners, but this is a good one, and Target delivered it well.

I bought this because I need a heater, dehumidifier, and air conditioner in my finished basement and was happy to find one unit that would perform all three functions. In the spring, I only need it to dehumidify as it's not hot enough to need AC and not cool enough to need supplemental heat. The dehumidifier function was not working, and we called customer service to trouble shoot. They told us it really doesn't work as a dehumidifer - just an AC or heater. It may be fine as an AC/heater - I haven't tried those functions - but the drying mode is not effective.

Christine - 10 years ago
I love this portable Air Conditioner. It works great and cools my bedroom within minutes. I have very tall ceilings and yet it doesn't take long to cool. I had purchased another Portable AC through another store and it had to be drained every 2 hours. When draining it water would go all over the floor. I brought it back and then purchased this one from Target. I have had this one running for days and not once have I had to drain it. I love this AC. Worth the money and I wouldn't hesitate to buy this brand again.

Value for Money product "Whynter Dual Hose 12000 BTU"

5 out of 5 stars
Anand Vijay - 12 years ago
Hi I bought this product after lots of research as summer was on the top. This is a perfect solution for deadly summer. My hall is 10 ft by 40ft and connected room is 10ft by 10ft ...it has controlled the temprature completely with keeping entire area cool. Honestly I will benchmark and rate this product one of the best , because I have good experience of using three other brands of Air conditioner which never gave such performance.Looks like this product is carefully designed considering all improvements, customer priority and demand in mind. I will share more analysis for this product later after having summer experience. So far I will rate this NO.1 in reliability and quality, however would have felt better if I would have paid little less...other side I paid right for quality. I will recommend this product as first customer choice.Thx. Vijay

Been sweating non-stop for almost a week before we ordered this. Nothing beats Target's shipping, fast as lightning. Received it exactly 52hrs after we ordered it shipped via ground! That's what I call competent. Anyway, I digress. The box it self was big and bulky but it was mostly from the parts and packaging. The unit size is what one would expect for a portable air-conditioner and maybe just a little larger as this is a dual-hosed unit. Got it running and blowing cold air in no time at all. The window kit is standard and hose the ports for the two exhausts. I personally prefer the dual hose unit, it just seems more energy efficient. The space that I am using it in is probably say 20x12 and this machine had no problems getting it cold. Not just cool, but actually cold. Understanding the indicator lights took some referencing to user manual but made sense after 20 secs. I would say that the overall design appeal of the unit is better than expected for a portable unit. very nice actually. I'm a fan of it and of definitely of Target's shipping.
