DeLonghi Air Conditioners:

Cools Any Room - Window-mounted air conditioners can help beat the summer heat, but their cooling powers are confined to a single room. This powerful unit is wheel-mounted, so it can roll through the house to combat hot, muggy weather in whatever room you're using. While watching TV or sleeping, switch on the quiet mode to chill rooms without disruption.

Keeps the Air Dry - The unit can dehumidify while cooling, or there's a dehumidify-only mode that sucks water out of the air to keep rooms free of moisture. Run it in the basement to prevent mold growth, or keep it in living areas to help alleviate seasonal allergies.

Low-Maintenance Operation - The air conditioner automatically recirculates condensation, which prevents dripping water and the need to periodically empty a bucket. Its filter can be easily removed and washed to save money on expensive replacements.

Your Choice:

DeLonghi PACAN140HPEWKC Portable 14,000 BTU Air Conditioner
14,000 BTU
Suitable for most rooms up to 500 sq. ft.
Three fan speeds, including quiet mode

Handles and casters

I've checked everywhere online for this specific model number and i'm finding nothing to confirm what year model, reviews, etc.can support this model. Why do i feel that this is not such a hot deal. Anyone know if this is solid deal? Yeah the brand and BTU's but the 90 day warranty makes it sketchy (as all refurbished items are).

No comment about the deal, but based on my experience:

This is a single hose unit, which means it uses the air inside the room to pass over the coils, and ejects it as hot air out the hose/window.
This is pretty inefficient as you can guess, dual hose is really the way to go on these portable units.

Also: 14k BTU on a portable != 14kBTU on a window/wall unit. The portable is much less efficient.

I believe they are running a promo now where there is 50 dollars off.
But you might have to return first and buy again to get the new price or talk to store clerk for the price adjustment

Assuming that this is a 110v unit, how is that possible? Most residential heaters max out at 1500w (110v x 14 amp)

My experience... I have a horizontal sliding windows, and their extension for the vent work perfectly. Some noise leak because the vent cover for the window are only one layer. You might want to ad form padding to the black to black out some outside noise.

I set my system as 72 cold ac with quiet mode at night with timer for 2 hours. Sleeping like a baby with even temperature. They have a fan mode too if you don't want to use the AC. I have not try their head mode.

I'm planning to return my unit currently using that I bought from Costco to save some money. I don't mind using refurbished Item.

There is another 14k model PACAN140ES.WH-3A from the same company but I'm not sure if thats the newest. All I know is that the PACAN140HPEWKC is the same one that Costco carry and all major store carry.

I have done some research, Yes dual vent AC is better circulation because it draw air from the outside witch does not cause negative pressure but it cost more. Single vent take air from inside your room (cold or hot) and circulate that then push hot air out. This will create negative pressure in the room, this then counter by air leaking in from under the door or any window that is open. If you are cooking in the kitchen, don't run this in your bedroom or the smell will be drawn into the room. LOL

I only have my system in the master bedroom so no big deal and it work well. If you going to put this in your big living room or room with vault celling, it may not work as good unless you are close to the system. Also good for condos and small apartment.

Lastly: Wife wanted me to get AC for a long time, Central AC, Split or Ductless AC cost a lot more due to the cost of the unit and the installation cost. Talked to multiple AC guy, they are charing $50 - $100 per hours for installation plus any additional cost for supplies and unit.

Hope this help. If you can't sleep at night due to hot weather... what would you pay for a good night sleep?.. I Paid $535 to Costco... LOL

De'Longhi Pinguino Portable Air Conditioner - 12,000 BTU 298.00. at Sams Club brand new. They have been this price for at least 4 years. I have used them or many years and have had good luck with them. I have central air, but like my bedroom like about 66 degrees. I leave the central on at 75 or 76 to keep the humidity out and then turn the portable on in my bedroom at night for that extra cool.

I did a quick check on a few of the other 14000 btu portable ACs.
They were all 115v. Hope that helps.
But yes, a dual hose would be a much better deal.
I'd also recommend drilling a small hole through your exterior wall for the drainage tube, otherwise you'll end up having to drain the unit manually once to twice a week depending on the humidity. (Or more)
An easy cock shot...(dibble with a cocking gun) when you put the AC in for storage during the winter, will fix any small hole.

One thing on the single vs dual hose. Most homes unless they're recently built or refit for super high efficiency aren't even close to sealed. Unless you have recent hvac your air vents may have up to a 30% (or more) leak level. Your bathroom fan ducts are also probably 'sealed' with a little plastic door that doesn't do much other than keep a bird from nesting in it.

Most portable air conditioners simply don't pull enough air to do something like suck air from the chimney and blow ashes all over your room like a whole house fan will.

So what'll happen in a single hose is that it'll use cooler, dryer interior air in the room where the a/c is (probably where you are) instead of a dual hose pulling hot moist air from outside and running that over the cooling coil. While the single hose will pull air from outside through cracks and weakly sealed places all over the house, that's probably not the room you and the a/c are sitting in.

If you're in an extremely hot or humid region, the single hose unit to cool your bedroom or living room might be a better choice than the dual hose. If you have an uber sealed house, you might need the dual hose.

I have one of these and would only use it if the main a/c went out. I thought I'd use it to cool the single room I was in instead of the whole house. They're very loud, very inefficient, and I found my electric bill spiked so high on the days I used it that I was about as well off running the central air.

They also have a tendency to leak water, since they collect it and then try to expel it as best they can while running. If you're in a very humid area you might see this. Almost all of them leak sooner or later, within the first few years. So don't stick it in a closet upstairs and leave it running without checking it, and putting it in a drip pan isn't a bad idea.

If you just have no other choices, like running a window unit or having a small split system installed...then they're a perhaps necessary option.

The other thing I'd suggest is that if you're a Sam's club member, a ton of people buy these and return them. Some at the end of the summer, some at the end of a hot 1-3 week streak. Sam's usually marks those down and sells them from a back corner of the store. They're usually marked down into the $200-250 range. I've seen a few with some minor scratch and dent ones in the $175-200 range.

Last, insulate the hose in a single and at least the exhaust hose in a dual. You wouldn't believe how hot they get.

I got the same one at Sam's. It was marked down late last summer for about $200, so I bought it and I now run it to cool down my bedroom at night while giving the central air a break (I set it at 79). I'm not seeing any savings or spikes in my electric so I guess that's OK, plus it's not a freakin' eyesore like a window unit (although the window units are more efficient).

Bear in mind, these units are fairly big and take up quite a bit of space when set up.

This is a couple of years old, and not sure why the one person claim to not be able to find reviews I Googled the item number and found it on Amazon as well as Costco business and a few other places.... woot has decent warranty coverage if memory serves they will also pay for return shipping which on something like this is very much a good thing normally you have to pay the return shipping so it makes X years of warranty more theoretical than anything else because to ship one of these across the country cost in normal person upwards of 100-200 ( that's why when I buy portable units I always get the extended warranty that covers shipping it back usually it's like 50 bucks but it will pay for itself if you have to use it.)

This product is no longer made, but for the money is a good deal I'm still waiting on the 14k whytner with heat, but for anyone desperate for a portable unit now, this is a good deal and 90 days takes you outside of the prime ac needing months...

Edit: apparently woot now has you pay for return shipping, I'd not do it for that reason alone.... "you are responsible for shipping the product to Woot at your expense"
