Customer Reviews

ArcticAire 8000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible piece of junk! Bought first one in August a few years ago. It worked for a month. Next summer, it wouldn't work. Danby did not have any repairmen around here so I had to find someone to try and fix it. Couldn't be fixed. Near the end of the summer, I received a new one to finish off the warranty. Only used it two or three times and put it away for winter. Worked for the first time the following summer then it stopped working. Had a serviceman look it over and was told that it could not be repaired.....

When selected, this automatically sets the appropriate option for your room based on the ambient temperature. For example, if it is 15°C outside, the unit would flip to fan mode. If it is set to 30°C, the unit would revert back to cooling mode.
On most models with heat mode, it is advised to use the hose for direct drain. This will ensure the pan does not fill up too quickly.
No, this is not recommended. Please bring your AC unit indoors during the winter months.
Dual hose models have an intake and exhaust hose. With single hose models, the hose exhausts and the air that is to be “conditioned” is taken in from the room through the unit.
Units with three drainage ports are units which also feature heat mode. The bottom drainage port empties the internal pan, the middle port is for continuous drain during heat and the top port is for continuous drain during dry mode. Please consult your owner’s manual for more detail.
This is not recommended, as the unit is built to operate using the drain hose/power cord provided.
During heat mode, dry mode or continuous draining. Please consult your owner’s manuals for more details.
You should always use it during cooling and heating. It is not required during fan and dry mode. Please consult your owner’s manuals for more details.
The water drains from the drainage port. If you are not using the continuous drain, the internal pan drains from the bottom outlet. Consult your owner’s manual for more information.
