Features of the Honeywell 10,000 BTU
This 10,000 BTU air conditioner is able to cool up to 350-400 sq. ft. This means that it is ideal for most rooms within the home that may need to be a little cooler.
It does not have a bucket, so you do not have to deal with emptying it out. Instead, it has the auto-evaporation system that will never spill out and stain your floors or cause water damage.
This unit offers dehumidification and can take care of up to 70 pints of moisture every 24 hours. It also has a 3M electrostatic filter and compressor to provide optimal cooling. The filter is washable so you do not have to worry about where to find new filters for it. This ensures that your family will have fewer allergies and be able to breathe a little easier.
It features an LCD display and features touch controls so that you can set it easily and see what it is set on at all times. If that doesn’t make it easy enough, you also have a full function remote control that will allow you to control it from across the room. Both the remote and the LCD display can be set to operate on a 24-hour programmable timer to ensure that you will be able to set it to cool before you get home.
This unit has the ability to adjust in temperature from 61 to 89 degrees to ensure your comfort and it is good for the environment since it uses R4101A refrigerant. This makes it safe to use while enjoying a powerful air flow of 174 CFM. The air does come from the top of the unit to ensure that it gets the area of the room that you are going to be able to feel the best. It will be able to blow cool air on you while you sleep in your bed at night, so that you can say, “Good-bye” to night sweats.
This unit is available in three color options. You can choose solid black, black and silver, or white. You can choose the one that fits in best with your home or your office. You can even choose a color that works well with all rooms since it is fully portable.
If you put it in your bedroom, you will not have to deal with a lot of noise. It operates at a noise level of 50 dBA when on low fan settings. The fan can run on one of three speed settings, either high, medium, or low, depending on the amount of coolness you need to get the room comfortable for yourself or your family members.
This unit weighs in at 63.93 pounds. This may seem a little heavy, but there are caster wheels to make it easier to transport if you need to take advantage of its portability. It measures 15.2 x 29.3 x 18.1 inches.
It does come with a limited one-year warranty for parts and labor. There is also a 4-year warranty on the compressor. Both ensure that your purchase will not become wasted money due to a manufacturer’s defect or a bad compressor during the first few years of ownership.
This unit is easy to install in every way. You should not have to purchase anything to help you with the installation. It comes with everything that you need to install it including a window kit and a flexible exhaust hose. The window venting kit can easily be removed when not in use. It is designed to work with any window that measures 19.9 to 47.25 inches. This means it will fit in all of your windows. You can also install it vertically or horizontally to further help you use it in all windows within your home or office. To use, you simply put the window kit in place and attach the hose to the unit. The unit can sit up to 3.94ft from the window. Attach the other end of the hose to the window kit. After you have done that, you simply power on the unit and set it up the way that you want it. The only requirement is that the kit does work best in windows that open by sliding up as opposed to windows that swing up. However, if you have any issues with setup and installation, you can refer to the owner’s manual and troubleshooting guides.
