[The Bay] Danby 14k BTU Portable Air Conditioner - $374!!!

Thanks to Jeff146 in his Breville Post for inspiration in finding this. It's on sale for $440. Use code BONUS for another 15% off which gets you $374.
This is already lower than what Costco cleared out last summer for. Add 15X Airmileshops airmiles and you get another roughly 10% back in airmiles cash!!

Please no posts about how dual hose is better! First almost no one makes them any more. No point buy some off brand you won't be able to service or find parts
for. Second I own both and while the theory of the dual hose is better, functionally it makes no difference. I've used a thermometer to measure the temp
of the air coming out and an energy meter to measure power draw. It's the same!

Thanks OP. I had just ordered the one from costco 12k BTU but they claim low noise which is important but may cancel and get this one.
There's not too many dual hose ones anyways so they're not worth talking about. Bestbuy had a dual hose haier for almost double the price of the one you posted but not worth it.

Standard household plug. These draw a lot of power though so you shouldn't run it on the same circuit
that runs anything more than a light bulb.

Problem with Bay, if there's any problems, even say out of the box, they won't let you return it. They are like Canadian Tire when it comes to returns now.

Looking for a replacement for my window AC unit. Is it true that these portable models are less effective? Is it worth it for an appartment?

This is an amazing deal, don't forget ebates, I believe its 5% right now which would bring it down to $355.

It comes with an exhaust kit. It's pretty easy to install. I've owned this same aircon for two years and I'm pretty happy with it.

Canadian Tire is bad for returns? Is that new? They used to be super easy.

I bought one of the Danny 12,000 BTU and it needed an outlet thats on it's own circuit or it would trip the fuse all the time.

In a discussion forum, pointing out the design flaw of a product and suggesting a more efficient alternative is not thread crapping. Don't take it personal.

Your reasoning shows that you don't understand how cooling/dehumidifying a space works.
Dual hoses is not just a theory. It's better NOT because of the temperature of the air coming out of the unit or the power it draws but because a single hose unit throws out cooled air from inside that is replaced by hot/humid air from outside seeping in from every crack and gap around all your doors, windows, floors, light fixtures, electrical boxes, air vents, etc. A dual hose unit cools the compressor with air it draws from outside then throws it out. It's a much more efficient way.

Don't buy these single hose designs. After a certain outside temperature (I believe 32 to 35 C and above) they just start working against the tide and warming up the space you are trying to cool. Not to mention the negative pressure they create inside your house which sucks all the heat and dust from the outside through every nook and cranny of your space.

Honestly, just wait till this drop around $550 and buy it. It is the Whynter 14,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable AC. This will do the job and do it well. Please be aware that in Canada the warranty is only on parts and service and not the shipping as Whynter is a US company.

Then buy one of these to automate your air conditioner from your phone/alexa/google assistant etc.
