Use it in computer or server rooms, bedrooms, classrooms, living rooms, workshops, and more.Easy Transport from Room to RoomOutfitted with four multidirectional casters, the unit can be easily wheeled between rooms without being lifted or carried. The unit measures 30.5 by 17.3 by 15.4 inches (H x W x D).Self-Evaporative System Controls CondensationThe self-evaporating technology produces cool, clean air by minimizing condensation and recycling moisture drawn during the cooling process. The system prevents excess condensation from accumulating under average ambient conditions, making the unit suitable for continuous, everyday use. This unit also comes with a direct-drain option for continuous operation without excess accumulation of condensation.Dual Hose Exhaust for Optimal Airflow and EfficiencyTo cool your space efficiently, the ARC-131GD draws warm air from both the inside and outside environment and converts it into cool, clean air. Warm, humid air is then expelled from the room through the exhaust hoses. Similar to traditional window air conditioners, this dual system creates improved airflow and efficient cooling.Four Operational Modes for Versatile UseThe unit offers four modes to choose from: cooling, dehumidifying, fan, and automatic. Cooling mode cools and dehumidifies the room. To dehumidify without cooling, choose the dehumidifying option. Automatic mode selects cooling or fan-only operation when ambient room temperature reaches 85 degrees F. To circulate air in the room select fan mode, with four fan speeds to choose from.The unit has a dehumidifying capacity of 91 pints per day and an adjustable digital thermostat range of 61 degrees F to 89 degrees F.Non-Permanent, Easy-to-Install Venting KitThe easy-install kit includes a window slide bar that fits in standard windows up to 47 inches wide. The slide bar adjusts vertically or horizontally. The kit also includes two extendable, 47-inch exhaust hoses and components for securing the hoses to the unit and the window slide bar.The ARC-131GD is designed for non-permanent venting through a window, though it can be custom modified to fit into wall openings or dropped ceilings.Simple Control Panel and Convenient RemoteThe remote control features and LCD display and simple selections, including a mode selection button, up/down temperature adjustments, and fan speed selection. Program the unit to activate or shut off at preset times with the 24-hour timer.Washable Pre-Filter and Activated Carbon FilterThe included pre-filter and odor-neutralizing carbon filter help keep the cooled air fresh and clean. To clean the pre-filter, simply remove it from the unit and rinse, tap off, or vacuum the accumulated dust. The carbon filter should be replaced every two to three months.Outfitted with Auto-Restart and Safety FeaturesDuring power outages, the auto-restart function will automatically restart the unit at its previous setting. This unit is also supplied with a Leakage Current Detection and Interruption (LCDI) plug, which reduces the risk of fire due to arcing faults in the power supply cord.What's in the BoxWhynter ARC-131GD 13,000 Btu Portable Air Conditioner, two exhaust hoses, window venting kit, remote control, pre-filter, activated carbon filter, and user manual.ARC-131GD Dual Hose Eco-Friendly Portable Air ConditionerAt a Glance:13,000 Btus cooling capacityEco-friendly air conditioner, fan, and dehumidifier in oneMobile unit with casters for easy transportR-410A refrigerant is safer for ozoneSelf-evaporative system exhausts most or all condensationDirect-drain option for continuous operationWhynter Portable Air Conditioners ModelARC-10WBARC-110WDARC-12SARC-12SDARC-12SDHARC-131GDARC-14SARC-14SHARC-143MXBTU's10,000 BTU11,000 BTU12,000 BTU12,000 BTUCooling: 12,000 BTUHeating: 11,000 BTU13,000 BTU14,000 BTUCooling: 14,000 BTUHeating: 13,000 BTU14,000Approx.
