EdgeStar Extreme Cool 14,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner & Heater
As one of the most powerful portable air conditioners on the market, the EdgeStar Extreme Cool 14000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner & Heater (AP14001HS) is our top pick for cooling larger spaces. The cooling system is powered by a high-efficiency rotary compressor that is capable of producing enough cooling power to quickly cool rooms up to 525 square feet in size – and unlike many of its competitors, this portable air conditioner has an effective heating function as well. The aptly-placed control panel is perfectly situated at the top of the unit, front and center, so you can easily access the thoughtfully-designed and straightforward control interface. Using a combination of buttons you can select from four (4) modes: cool, fan, dehumidify, or heat, and three (3) fan speeds to create the most comfortable living spaces possible. The unit includes a washable and reusable pre-filter that removes debris from the air in addition to a carbon filter that helps eradicate odors and other various contaminants from the air. The modern and easy-to-read cool blue LCD display can show the room temperature as well as the set temperature – which is adjusted using the unique smooth-rotating dial. Additionally, the dial is used to control timer settings and can be pressed to display temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius.
One of the extremely useful features of the EdgeStar 14000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner & Heater is the use of a self-evaporative system. This patented auto-drain system helps automatically remove condensate that may accumulate during usage so there’s no need to deal with the hassle of constantly emptying a drain pan of any kind. Furthermore, this portable air conditioner utilizes a dual hose system to increase the cooling efficiency by using separate hoses for venting heat exhaust and pulling in air, and attaches to the included window kit. This model’s sturdy and easy-rolling casters make it true to its name, giving it the power to move easily from room-to-room, while the easy grip handles help you maneuver the unit with confidence. Additional features of this portable air conditioner include a built-in timer that’s fully-adjustable to let you control when the unit automatically turns on or off, as well as a remote control that is capable of controlling all of the same key functions found on the control panel. The unmatched performance and features of the EdgeStar Extreme Cool 14000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner & Heater pair with the contemporary and highly refined exterior to create one of the most popular and versatile portable air conditioners that we offer.
