    Good Enough in a Category That's SubPar at Best

    I did an enormous amount of research before deciding which BRAND of portable ACs to consider (a factor of price, availability, and overall customer ratings), but what I failed to consider is the category as a whole. And by that I mean: Should I buy a portable AC at all? Let me save you the trouble: If you own your home and can afford it, have central AC installed. If either the cost is prohibitive or you do not own, buy a window unit if your windows are standard windows and not (as I have) non-standard (e.g., french windows, oversized windows, stained glass windows, etc). If you do have non-standard windows (or standard windows for that matter) and can afford the cost (and the building owner approves), by all means, go with a split system. If all else fails and you're melting just reading this review, then (unfortunately) a portable AC is for you. Now that you've decided that a portable AC is what you have to have, the choices get entirely easy or impossibly difficult to discern so here's some advice. There's no good reason to pay for a unit on the high end of the cost scale because they all seem to do (or not do) exactly the same thing. II'd say, based on my purchase, the $500 range is about middle of the road (though who knows, some of the ultra low cost units may be just as good). When I started my research, I wanted something quiet and while some use the word "whisper" in their name, forget it. Save a decibel or two, they all fall into the same range which is from sort of forgotten about to boy my ears are numb. They produce about as much noise as a window unit. Another factor important to me (and for all you eco-conscious buyers out there note especially), "eco-friendly". To my initial surprise, these units are abound but that term comes to mean that they use a particular coolant to cool the air which as it turns out is the only coolant that is approved for use in these units in the U.S. In other words, they're all the same. Though they'll consume different amounts of electricity in direct proportion to the BTU rating where higher is cooler is less eco-friendly, so the hotter you're willing to be the more eco-friendly you are! Congrats, you win. You're better than I am. Another thing is the misconception of BTU and covering a particular square footage. Now, you'll get all sorts of informed opinions about this. Here are my two favorites: (1) in calculating the square footage of the area to be air conditioned, air will pass over an opening of less than 32 inches and can be treated as if it is a solid wall because circulating air will "skip" areas of this width whereas any room that is connected to the room to be cooled with an opening of more than 32 inches should be counted in the total square footage to be cooled (got that? read on, it doesn't matter) and (2) the BTU rating is a national average, but you should adjust for local conditions (e.g., average temperatures in your area, whether its urban or rural, the humidity, etc.) which for the Los Angeles area is 1.5 or 15% less adjusted BTUs than as labeled. meaning that a unit with 10,0000 BTU rating used in the Los Angeles area should be considered a 8,5000 BTU rating (1.5 factor = 15%; 100% = 15% = 85%; 85% of 10,000 BTU = 8,500 adjusted BTU) (i have no idea if this is true, but again, read on. it doesn't matter). Forget all that: These units are intended to cool a room or two provided that the rooms are roughly adjacent to one another, can be closed off from the rest of your house, and are not a kitchen. The air won't circulate down a hall, around a corner from your living room to your bedroom to keep you cool day and night. It ain't gonna happen. Pick a room to keep cool and live in it. All that brings us to this: as long as your staying in the $500 range, what's your favorite color? That's the only distinction I have been able to find. Incidentally, your choices are white, gray, black, silver, bronze, and some navy and red. Oh, and wait for a sale. Trust me, at least you can hold on to that thought of saving 10% when you're boiling mad that you're ... well, still boiling. Now I have to make a decision: Do I buy a second unit for my bedroom hoping that the living room unit will meet it in the middle and I'll cool down at last? I like silver.

    I have been suffering from the hot summer for 11 years since I moved into my current house. my large bedroom is at the end of the building on the second floor. during the hot summer time, with my center air on, my room can still easily reach 85F-90F plus after 11 am. I have been looking for a portable air conditioner for few years. I was hesitated buying one due to the negativity on most of the reviews of each products/brands and from friends experience that they ended up return their portable air conditioner. I finally set up my mind and decided to give it a try. Ordered online from Best Buy, they delivered it withing 3 days via UPS. box is ripped when I received it, but I think it is the UPS at fault. Installment was simple and easy. moving the machine upstairs to my room takes some effort due to its weight. Since I first time turn it on, I know I will keep it (unless something went wrong during the refundable 15 days) and will not suffer the LA hot summer anymore. I got an additional 20% off from Googling the Best Buy coupon code--thanks for the one review that I read...it saved me $110 on this unit. I will definite recommend this product to anyone. Noise?? yes, it is quite loud; but it does not bother me more than the summer heat in my room. you pick--noise or the heat???

    Great efficient unit for portable ac category

    At first I really wanted a window mounted ac unit due to the condenser being outside of the room. I used this for a 1 bed room 1 bath unit about 500 square feet along with two 18 inch oscillating fans to circulate air throughout the apartment. I must say to make this unit efficient you must seal all windows and door seals along with any other air escape like stove fan. Also used thermal reflective window foam to insulate all the windows that get direct sunlight. The unit really dehumidifies that room to a great extent. Ac cooling capability is excellent. Average nights get up to 80-85 degrees. I like to bring the temp down to 75 degrees which the unit does well. The exhaust hose is hooked up with the window kit and the intake side takes the air inside the unit and recirculates the air while cooling it. The oscillating fans help distribute the cooler air throughout the room. If you don't have and fans to circulate the air then I highly recommend you get some. Otherwise the power of the ac unit itself will not circulate the cooled air thought the area you want cooled. Again great unit if worked properly. Would also recommend draining the unit everyday due to condensation and have now restrictions like screens on the window with exhaust hooked up to.

    Cools the room to 78-80 & it is a handsome item...

    I wish it cooled the room more as it is 150 square foot room and it is a 14.000btu unit! That said, I need to shut out some areas in window that allow air in and out as these are jalousie windows and are hard to block. It cools the room to 78-80 and is a handsome item, but you have to move like a snake around it as it is an extremely sensitive item. I thought the exaggerated amount of BTUS for such a small room would compensate. I have M.S. and this room did not have any A.C. something is better than the overwhelming Miami Heat at full force and I don't mean the basketball team... Would recommend as to lowering the room temperature not cold like a regular A.C./Projected FPL bill is double the normal amount so far we will see.

    I work night shift and sleep during the day. I've put off buying an A/C, but decided to go for it this year. This A/C works very well and cools down my bedroom quickly. I bought a model with a bigger square footage rating than the size of my bedroom based on reading other reviews, and it is working great. I wish I'd have gotten one years ago! Highly recommended. Easy window setup, but had to modify slightly because my window is taller than the included pieces. Simply cut a 2x6 to length, painted it white, and it fits snugly in the window, so I can open and close the window and the a/c hose and 2x6 stay in place.

    Decent AC

    After originally purchasing an LG unit that came in damaged, management at the Signal Hill Best Buy talked me into getting this unit, specifically because I would not have to drain as often. I love this feature, you still have to drain it, but not as often. I have been using it every day for about a month and have not had to drain it. My old unit would have to be drained a few times a week. The price is ok, I got a great deal on it. Cooling is decent, but once it reaches temp, the unit does not turn off, just the condenser, the fan still runs. I wish it cooled a larger area, 500 SF for 14K BTU is not that great.

    Disappointed

    Very inefficient. Creates a strong negative pressure which does allow the cold air it blows to populate other areas of the apartment. I smoke vapor tested the air flow in my apartment and when this unit is on the air current gets sucked straight into the room it is located. So the cold air doesn't go anywhere but around and around the one room it is located. The hose is too short which means it has to be placed next to a window, and in my case cannot be placed in a better location. For the money its a waste for the little amount of cooling it does, compared to a window unit. If you can buy a window shaker, they are more efficient and cheaper.

    Does the Job

    We installed this in our art studio that has heat but no AC. It works great. Cools the high ceiling room (with two skylights and two large windows) very well. It was easy to install. The only issue is that the window fit could be better. We bought duck tape to seal the fitting. Also--and this is a general comment more than a negative on this particular Honeywell--I am always looking for a quiet running machine. This is quiet for an AC but I wish the manufacturers would come out with a whisper quiet one--perhaps one with a super low fan setting.
