[Costco] Danby 14000 BTU 4 in 1 Portable Air Conditioner $399.99 after $100 discount

Danby 14000 BTU 4 in 1 Portable Air Conditioner for $399.99.


http://m.costco.ca/Danby-Designer-14,00 ... 68681.html

$40 more expensive online as it includes shipping. Best to pick up at a local Costco. Price at warehouse is $499.99 with $100 off.

Unit had decent reviews on Costco website.

Sale online lasts until May 22.

Going to try to pick up a unit myself in anticipation of the heat this summer. Would be a great unit for those who live in an apartment. This unit plus a fan to blow the cool air around would probably be sufficient to cool down most apartments.

Yes I believe so within a certain amount of days. If not, just return your unit and buy a new one at the lower price.

Is it really that "portable" considering it's weight? How easy/hard is the window install? Any special tools needed?

easy to install, my window was too small by about 1 inch, and had to cut the siding.

not portable up/down stairs, but, room to room? should be ok, but is heavy.

I bought this unit last year. It has wheels so its movable but its pretty heavy. Performance wise it cools a large master with no problems but it is on loud side, but you get used to it. Installation for a sliding window is no problem at all, I don't even need any tools.

Does anyone know how this model compares to a setup like Bestbuy's Haier with a dual hose? Obviously, there is a price difference.

You don't have to have the receipt. You go to the service counter with you membership card and tell them you bought it last week. They will check in their system then they will refund you the different. usually, they have kept it around 5 or 6 yrs.

Two Hose designs are more efficient and don't cause your house to have negative air pressure and vacuum in hot air.

this model has it. http://m.costco.ca/.product.100248292.html

Just the same all these portable units are a trade-off to a more efficient (in most cases except the ultra cheap and weak ones one) window units.

Keep in mind that the store will only do a refund on the difference if stock still is in the store.

Both of these topics are HIGHLY warehouse dependent.
The bunch of warehouses I've visited in BC do require the original receipt for both returns and price adjustments.
Alberta seems more lax.

Also to note, if you do a receiptless return in BC you get the lowest selling price.
If you can produce a receipt you get the price you paid.

FWIW I live in one of the hottest areas of BC for July/Aug and I can vouch this unit brings our bedroom down from an unbearable 85-90F to a "comfortable" 73F. It takes a while but it does get there by 10pm if started around 3pm. The room size is 13x17

How do these compare to Whynter & Toyotomi units?

Also what is Costcos return policy? I can't access their site. I have a room with high ceilings and I'm not sure if this will work well enough for us.

Edit: Just noticed that its a single hose unit thats a deal killer :(

I am concerned about the noise. I bought a Danby to try and test the noise level in my bedroom.

Using my smartphone sound meter the readings are as follows:

1. Cool mode and lowest fan setting - 4.5 ft 53db, 10 ft 50db, from my kitchen 38db

2. Auto mode and auto fan setting (high) - 4.5 ft 54db, 10 ft 51db, from my kitchen 42db

I can barely hear the AC from the other room. As a reference if nothing is on but background noise 34db and if I have talk radio on 42db.

I not sure if there are any other portable AC that much quieter. I figure I won't worry that much about power usage as I need it only in the hot months.

Anyone try the Gree AC or the Delonghi whisper cool AC?

Thanks OP, just what I was looking for. It seems that there are about 15 units in Surrey, BC.
