We'll forgive Whynter for not going the extra step on the design of this portable air conditioner; we fear that would have driven the price too high. Instead, the manufacturers focused on the most important aspects of any portable air conditioning unit - the ability to manipulate the air in your home (or office).


The 14,000 BTU operation of this machine only covers about 500 square feet of space, but it is one of the most eco-friendly units available. You get a remote control, but more important is the digital readout that allows for thermostatic control. The dual hose exhaust system ensures that your space cools quickly and there's also a 24-hour programmable timer. Oh yeah, it's also a fan and a dehumidifier. In short, this is one of the best machines you can get (and perhaps the best looking, though the competition isn't fierce in this category).
