Auto Drain Function 

The incorporated auto drain technology allows ARC-14s to draw moisture from the surroundings and recycle it to produce a clean and cool air.

Dual Hose Exhaust 

This allows for optimal airflow and efficiency. Whynter 14000 Btu ARC-14s draws warm air from inside and outside the room then converts the air into a cool and clean form. The exhaust nose is then used to expel the warm and humid air from the room. Just like traditional window air conditioners, this dual system improves air flow and cools warm air effectively. 

Washable and Activated Carbon Filters 

ARC-14s comes with a washable pre-filter and an odor-neutralizing, activated carbon filter that keeps air in your room fresh and clean. The pre-filter is super easy to clean. You only need to remove it from the unit, tap off or vacuum the dust. It is recommended to replace the carbon filter after every three months.
