The Whynter portable air conditioner is one of the best for homes w/ high ceilings + open layouts
Another benefit of the Whynter ARC-14SH is the dehumidifier — it can remove 100 pints of air moisture each day. (more than similar 14000 BTU air conditioners).

Whynter ARC-14SH Review:
The Whynter portable air conditioner comes with 2 types of air filters:
1.) Washable air filters – when circulating air, this ac filter removes air contaminants, pollutants and dust.
2.) Reusable pre-filter – helps provide a secondary level of protection by trapping micro air-particles (such as pollen, ragweed & pet dander)
The Whynter portable air conditioner even includes a thermostat controller which lets set the temp!
On the LED screen you’ll see the current temp — you can set the new temp on the machine or using the remote control.
Buyers like that it’s a fairly quiet portable air conditioner.
On max power, the noise level will never go above 54 decibels — comparable AC units are well above 60 (even on low speed).
Noise Level (dB): ≤ 54 decibels
Because of its low noise, many buyers use it as their bedroom ac unit. Some even use it as a secondary ac unit.
Also comes with 3 fan speeds.

ARC-14SH Whynter Portable Air Conditioner Review:
The Whynter portable air conditioner is looking to be a top seller in 2020.
Powerful AC motor makes it extremely effective for large rooms — open layouts or high ceilings. One buyer says they keep doors open to cool multiple rooms.
Having a high-powered dehumidifier is nice added value too.
Dehumidify: 101 pints daily
Dehumidifiers of this size, without the air conditioning function can cost $150 – 250.
If you’re looking for a powerful air conditioner to cool a large area, I think the Whynter ARC-14SH is worth considering.
The Whynter ARC-14SH and ARC-14S were sold out last summer which is a good sign of its popularity + performance.
