Whynter ARC-12S Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't buy this air conditioner This product works less efficiently then the 10,000 BTU Commercial Cool air conditioner which I purchased last year. It's specs claim it can cool up to a 400 sq. foot room, but it barely does my bedroom which is less than 200 sq. feet at best it keeps it 80 degrees which is not what I was looking for, I would like my room to stay about 74-76 degree at most. I don't recommend this air conditioner. I would defiantly stick with the Commercial Cool if I buy another. I also have a 7,000 BTU Commercial Cool in my kitchen which blows out cooler air then this one. Not worth the money. DON'T BUY!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid unit, decent price This is a better than standard a/c unit, that provide rather effective cooling. It looks quite OK but most importantly is has been reliable through high temperatures.
