The Whynter portable is solidly built and works like a charm

We've been looking for a suitable air con for our apartment for almost 2 weeks. It's been like the goldilocks syndrome. Everything we read about online or saw instore just didn't work for us. Too big, too loud, too expensive. This was borderline pricey but it's appearance was very compelling. I guess my wife won that discussion and we decided to get it.  When it arrived, I must say the actual appearance won me over quickly. Very low profile and European in it's design.

We installed the vent kit into the sliding windows with no problems and it was ready to do it's job. It was a balmy Sunday afternoon and there was no better time to try it out. First impression-very very cold. Noise level was generally low except when for a few seconds when the compressor kicks in and it's playing catch-up to the set termperature. Bottomline is, great unit, priced at a premium, but well worth it. No regrets and in fact I have highly recommended it to friends looking for something similar.

How does such a small unit deliver? IT doesn't

I have owend this since last spring, so this is my second season. The first year was a learning process to find the most consistant delivery setting. The difference in fan speeds is barley noticeable, and the remote is very hard to master, but no matter, by the second summer, even with fresh batteries, the remote quit completely. I now have the only seting it was last on and it functions, I can not adjust anything but on and off. at least the full indicator light for needing draining went out, even when it was empty and dry the light was lit. As for cooling, I get by far better results from my 10,000 window unit, but since I have no standard window I use this 13,000 btu unit and have to suppliment with a fan redirect from the room that I can install the window unit.

Ice Cold!!!

|

<p>This is by far one of the best purchases that I made in 2011!  This unit gets a room so cold in the summer, my teeth were chattering! Only drawback is that you can only cut on the A/C portion of the unit with the remote, if you lose the remote, you only get the fan option.  Other than that, perfect A/C unit for someone that wants to cool a small room</p>

Whynter Sno 1300 Portable A/C keeps our living room comfortable.

|

<p>The Whynter Sno 1300 Portable A/C unit really works well. It keeps our living room quite cool and comfortable.  The only problems we have had with it are the directions are complicated and the window panel was not long enough.  It should be able to go floor to ceiling for a sliding window.  We had to add some extra plastic to cover the remainder of the window.  It has been great being able to come home to a nice cool environment.</p>

SNO 13000 btu portable ac

|

<p>Looking for a second portable AC unit, I read the reviews on the SNO 13000 and it sounded good. Rec'd it a week later and tried it out. I was better off with the old Kenmore window unit I had. My 1st portable,12000 btu LG, far surpasses this unit. The SNO was heavy as expected but sounded like a Blackhawk while running and cooled alot less than the under powered LG (and yes, it was on the correct setting). For all the people that said it was quite, I strongley suggest a audiology test. Thankfully Sears does honor its return policy. I'm only in the hole for 60.00 shipping. Do not recommend, better off with a fan.</p>

The Whynter SNO 13000 AC is a winner

|

<p>This unit is probably one of the best portable Ac s you can buy.</p>
<p>At nearly 80 pounds it is a bit of a beast but the heavy duty rollers make it easy to move about. installing it took around 15 minutes and it was up and running.</p>
<p>The only sound coming from the unit is the sound of air from the front vent. the unit is by no means silent and lowering the fan speed does not decrease the amount of sound this unit puts out but you never hear the compressor when it is running and the level of sound is not intrusive. I have used it in 90 degree weather so far with out a hitch... no water leaking and hot air is effectively sent out the back. you might want to use additional foam strips around the piece that fits into the window to keep it in pace and keep it air tight. The only complaints I have about the unit is that if you loose the remote control you are sunk as most of the functions for cooling and dehumidifying can only be set using it. The other complaint is that the shipping carton is totally inadequate in protecting the unit during shipment so you have to hope for the best as far as handling is concerned and without the original carton shipping it back for warranty service will be a problem. Other than that I am very please and would recommend this unit for rooms no bigger than this unit is designed for. </p>
