Compact, Eco-Friendly Solution to Air Conditioning

The environmentally friendly ARC-12S is CFC free and designed for minimal energy consumption. This efficient air conditioner uses ozone-safe R-410A refrigerant and lead-free, RoHS-compliant components.

Cools Rooms with Clean, Fresh Air

With 12,000 Btus, this robust unit cools spaces up to 400 square feet with average ambient room conditions. Use it in computer or server rooms, bedrooms, classrooms, garages, workshops, and more.

Easy Transport from Room to Room

Outfitted with four multidirectional casters, the unit can be easily wheeled between rooms without being lifted or carried. The unit measures 31 by 17 by 15.5 inches (H x W x D).

Auto Drain Function Removes Condensation

Auto drain technology draws moisture from the air and recycles it to produce cool, clean air. The system prevents excess condensation from accumulating, making the unit suitable for continuous, everyday use. This unit also comes with a direct-drain option for continuous operation without excess accumulation of condensation.

Three Operational Modes Include Fan and Dehumidifier

The unit offers three modes: cooling, dehumidifying, and fan. Cooling mode cools and dehumidifies the room. To dehumidify without cooling, choose the dehumidifying option. Fan mode circulates air in the room and offers four fan speeds to choose from.

The unit has a dehumidifying capacity of 91 pints per day and an adjustable digital thermostat range of 61 degrees F to 89 degrees F.

Non-Permanent, Easy-to-Install Venting Kit

The easy-install kit includes a window slide bar that fits in standard windows up to 36 inches wide. The slide bar adjusts vertically or horizontally. The kit also includes an extendable exhaust hose (up to 49 inches) with components for securing the hose to the unit and the window slide bar.

The ARC-12S is designed for non-permanent venting through a window, though it can be custom modified to fit into wall openings or dropped ceilings.

Simple Control Panel and Convenient Remote

The control panel features simple selections, including a mode selection button, up/down temperature adjustments, and fan speed selection. Program the unit to activate or shut off at preset times with the 24-hour timer. An included remote control puts the full set of controls at your fingertips.

Washable Pre-Filter and Activated Carbon Filter

The included pre-filter and odor-neutralizing carbon filter help keep cooled air fresh and clean. To clean the pre-filter, simply remove it from the unit and rinse, tap off, or vacuum the accumulated dust. The carbon filter should be replaced every two to three months.

Outfitted with Auto-Restart and Safety Features

During power outages, the auto-restart function will automatically restart the unit at its previous setting. This unit is also supplied with a Leakage Current Detection and Interruption (LCDI) plug, which reduces the risk of fire due to arcing faults in the power supply cord.
