Dangerously high temperatures can often result in various heat-related illnesses, but this won’t be a concern with this deluxe portable air conditioning unit from Danby. You’ll be able to remain cool and comfortable at all times with this powerful 10,000 BTU model which is designed for rooms up to 450 square feet in size. This larger appliance has a direct-drain feature which allows it to operate continuously and can handle 54 pints each 24 hours. The R410A refrigerant makes this an environmentally-friendly option as the ozone layer isn’t depleted. It comes with low, medium and high fan settings which enable you to keep your space anywhere between a comfortable 16°C and 32°C (61°F to 89°F). The high-tech automatic on/off feature allows you to start and stop the appliance at your convenience via the integrated remote control or easy-to-read electronic LED display. Moving the unit from room to room is made easy with the handy built-in castors and handles and the dual-hose design makes sure the stale air is removed from the room while the fresh air is drawn in. This attractive air conditioner also features an 18-month warranty on parts and labour.

Customer Reviews

Danby Designer 10000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price.Dual hose isn't unutilized well Cools off a medium sized master bedroom very well. Even though it has dual hoses, it still creates a STRONG negative pressure in the room. Dual hoses should ideally have no negative pressure in the room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Danby Portable Air conditioner I have been using it for over a year. So far so good. No complaint. Not too noisy when compared with other brands. Low maintenance. The good feature is that there is no need to empty the water tank like some models did. Good product. p.s. I have bought two units: one upstair and one downstair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Negative pressure? Thought it would cool bigger a room. Barely enough to cool a small bedroom. Seems like the minimum temperature achievable is 9 degrees, which is disappointing. negative pressure build up (net loss if air leaving the unit). Fairly loud.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Conception de piètre qualité Le climatiseur s'est mis à faire un vacarme incroyable 15 jours après l'achat et Best Buy a refusé de le reprendre, car le délais de 14 jours de retour était dépassé. Le roulement du ventilateur semble "lousse" et on doit pencher l'appareil vers l'arrière pour que le bruit cesse.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works I bought one of these units used. It keeps my ~500 sq ft 1 bedroom apartment cool for the most part. I have it set up in my bedroom and it seems to push air through the whole place well. I'll agree with others on the negative pressure but that doesn't bother me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Un climatiseur efficace J'ai acheté ce climatiseur en juin 2015 et je l'ai trouvé efficace pour réduire la chaleur et l'humidité dans mon logement de 4½ pièces. Il est par contre un peu bruyant, comme tous les climatiseurs que j'ai pu voir.

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.
