Black and Decker 14000 BTU.
The new Black & Decker BPACT14WT is a powerful, 3-in-1 portable air conditioner.
For a 14,000 BTU unit it’s reasonably priced ~ reading through reviews I saw that buyers used it for home offices, living rooms, dorm rooms and basements.
It’s also great for homes with open layouts or high ceilings.
As a 14k unit, the it is the most popular large-room AC ~ for smaller rooms there’s four other size models (with some including heat!).
- BPACT08WT: 8000 BTU (150 sq. ft.)
- BPACT10WT: 10000 BTU (250 sq. ft.)
- BPACT12WT: 12000 BTU (400 sq. ft.)
- BPACT14WT: 14000 BTU (550 sq. ft.)
- BPACT14HWT: 14000 BTU w/ heater
All units offer 3-in-1 functionality.
air conditioning, dehumidify, fan mode
What’s surprising is how affordable it is compared to other 14000 BTU units.
Overall I think it’s a good option for anyone looking for a high-powered cooling unit in their home or office.

Black and Decker BPACT14WT Review:
The Black & Decker 14,000 BTU unit is designed for generating fast air-flow.
It’s very good at maintaining cooler temperatures, especially for long durations of 5+ hours.
Power: 14,000 BTU
Coverage: 400 – 550 sq. ft.
Room size: 25 x 27 ft.
All models come w/ a remote control and allow you to set a desired room temperature.
other portable units have a remote, but only to increase/decrease power
Buyers confirm that once you set the room temp, the BPACT14WT will run at max speed initially (which can be a little loud), but quickly achieves your desired temp in 10-20 mins.
Once it has cooled the temperature it’s able to operate quietly and maintain the room temp.
Temperature: 62°F – 88°F
Here’s a few scenarios which I think Black & Decker BPACT14WT is ideal for:
large living rooms, home offices, basements, classrooms, shared living areas (such as dorms)
It comes 95% preassembled which makes it super easy to install.
Buyers say it takes only 10-15 mins!

Black and Decker 14000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner:
The Black and Decker Portable AC units have very good buyer ratings online.
Compared to similar-size 14,000 BTU air conditioners I think the BPACT14WT is middle-of-the-road — You can easily spot options that are cheaper or more expensive.
However, this is a model that’s been around for a while.
It was a top seller in 2019 and I expect it to be a top portable ac in 2020.
The downside is that it’s a little louder than others I’ve reviewed, but that’s to be expected w/ larger size units.
For anyone needing to cool large, residential areas I think the Black and Decker BPACT14WT is worth considering — it’s fast at cooling and maintains room temperature as good as any.
It also has tons of positive buyer reviews!
