Should You Buy a Split AC? - The Air Conditioner Guide
In general, a split AC system will do a better job cooling than a window or portable air conditioner, but a split AC is more expensive than either of those units. On the other hand, the price of split AC units is much lower than central air, especially if you plan to cool only one or two rooms.

Product description

Amvent Ductless Mini Split Air Conditioning Systems are a powerful & flexible way to efficiently cool a room. Each system has two parts: an indoor unit & an outdoor unit. The indoor unit is mounted using a bracket - like a picture frame - on an exterior facing wall, then connected to the outdoor unit using a small hole drilled through the wall. Electricity is supplied via a 20 Amp Breaker (not supplied) to the Outdoor unit. The indoor unit draws its power from the outdoor unit.

QUICK-INSTALL SYSTEM - All Amvent systems use the QUICK-INSTALL system, making installation easy. The QUICK-INSTALL system features pre-wired indoor & outdoor units, Quick-Connection terminals for connecting the two units & pre-flared/pre-flanged insulated line sets (connecting pipes). There is no welding or soldering needed and no need to charge the system, since the system comes pre-charged with DuPont SUVA R410 refrigerant.

Eco-friendly ARC-14S portable air conditioner can be easily set up in any indoor location. View larger.

Dual hose system facilitates greater space utilization. View larger.

Air Conditioning in a Compact, Eco-Friendly Design

The environmentally friendly ARC-14S is CFC free and designed for minimal energy consumption. This efficient air conditioner uses ozone-safe R-410A refrigerant and lead-free, RoHS-compliant components.

Cools Rooms with Clean, Fresh Air

With 14,000 Btus, this robust unit cools spaces up to 500 square feet with average ambient room conditions. Use it in computer or server rooms, bedrooms, classrooms, living rooms, workshops, and more.

Easy Transport from Room to Room

Outfitted with four multidirectional casters, the unit can be easily wheeled between rooms without being lifted or carried. The unit measures 35.5 by 19 by 16 inches (H x W x D).

Auto Drain Function Removes Condensation

Auto drain technology draws moisture from the air and recycles it to produce cool, clean air. The system prevents excess condensation from accumulating, making the unit suitable for continuous, everyday use.

Includes easy-install kit.
View larger.

Dual Hose Exhaust for Optimal Airflow and Efficiency

To cool your space efficiently, the ARC-14S draws warm air from both the inside and outside environment and converts it into cool, clean air. Warm, humid air is then expelled from the room through the exhaust hose. Similar to traditional window air conditioners, this dual system creates improved airflow and efficient cooling.

Three Operational Modes Include Fan and Dehumidifier

The unit offers three modes: cooling, dehumidifying, and fan. Cooling mode cools and dehumidifies the room. To dehumidify without cooling, choose the dehumidifying option. Fan mode circulates air in the room and offers four fan speeds to choose from.

The unit has a dehumidifying capacity of 101 pints per day and an adjustable digital thermostat range of 61 degrees F to 89 degrees F.

Non-Permanent, Easy-to-Install Venting Kit

The easy-install kit includes a window slide bar that fits in standard windows up to 36 inches wide. The slide bar adjusts vertically or horizontally. The kit also includes two extendable, 49-inch exhaust hoses and components for securing the hoses to the unit and the window slide bar fixtures.

The ARC-14S is designed for non-permanent venting through a window, though it can be custom modified to fit into wall openings or dropped ceilings.

Simple Control Panel and Convenient Remote

The control panel features an LCD display and simple selections, including a mode selection button, up/down temperature adjustments, and fan speed selection. Program the unit to activate or shut off at preset times with the 24-hour timer. An included remote control puts the full set of functions at your fingertips.

Washable Pre-Filter and Activated Carbon Filter

The included pre-filter and odor-neutralizing carbon filter help keep cooled air fresh and clean. To clean the pre-filter, simply remove it from the unit and rinse, tap off, or vacuum the accumulated dust. The carbon filter should be replaced every two to three months.

Outfitted with Auto-Restart and Safety Features

During power outages, the auto-restart function will automatically restart the unit at its previous setting. This unit is also supplied with a Leakage Current Detection and Interruption (LCDI) plug, which reduces the risk of fire due to arcing faults in the power supply cord.
