Do the Right Thing.


The dual hose portable air conditioners are simply a revolutionary design! During the air conditioning process moisture is condensed and collects in an internal bucket. A dramatic leap forward, this design utilizes the water by showering it over the evaporator coils. The benefits of this “shower” are twofold: 1) the water does an excellent job of cooling the system thus improving efficiencies and consuming less energy. 2) Showering the evaporator coils accelerates the evaporation process allowing more of the condensed moisture to be expelled outside which in turn almost eliminates the need to empty the bucket. This model also has the added benefit of operating as strictly a dehumidifier during the wet spring and fall seasons or solely as a fan

Square feet is calculated by multiplying the length by the width.  For example, a room that is 10 feet long by 25 feet wide is 250 square feet.
The ionizer feature safely creates a localized charge to collect more particulates from the air.
ISTA-6 packaging refers to the type of packaging used to reduce damage when shipping.
Danby air conditioners are designed to cool a single room and not multiple rooms.  Any walls or doors will interfere with the air flow.
Danby portable air conditioners have a sound rating from 38 decibels to 56 decibels.  The exact decibel range is determined by the model of the unit and the mode (fan, cool or heat if available with the model). Danby also has a patented Silencer Technology available on several models that will keep your home cool and comfortable while operating at a 46 decibel to 49 decibel range.
You should always use it during cooling and heating. In most models it should be removed while using fan and dry mode as it is not required. Please consult your owner’s manuals for more details.

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.
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.
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.
During heat mode, dry mode or continuous draining. Please consult your owner’s manuals for more details.
This is not recommended, as the unit is built to operate using the drain hose/power cord provided.
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.
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.
No, this is not recommended. Please bring your AC unit indoors during the winter months.
