    5.0 out of 5 stars This changes everything!
    By Blessed Soul on June 16, 2020
    I recently purchased a 1947 Cape Cod home. The top floor is a loft-style master suite with two south-facing dormers. The total square footage of my bedroom is 865 square feet. This is my dream bedroom... until the first summer when I thought I was going to die from the heat and resulting lack of solid sleep.

    Not only does the attic insulation need to be replaced/replenished but the wrong soffits were installed into the house. The house should have vented soffits. It could also use better venting in the attic. It was hotter than Hades up there last summer. When the first floor was 70 degrees Fahrenheit with central air, my bedroom remained at least 78 degrees and once neared 90 degrees. There are central air vents in my room; but, because it's basically attic space, it wasn't enough.

    I spent so much time researching window air conditioners versus portable air conditioner and single hose portable air conditioners versus two hoses. I decided to buy a portable unit because it's easier to handle compared to installing and removing a heavy window unit. When it's not summer, I just roll the portable unit into my closet.

    I went with a single hose unit because, after much reading, it seems that dual hose units are most effective when the temperatures are over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. We don't get a lot of those in Ohio. I choose this model because it was good for a 700 square foot area. While my room is 865 square feet, I still have the benefit of central air vents. It's the largest area recommended for any portable unit, and I trust the Honeywell brand.

    Other concerns I had for using supplemental air conditioning in my room was the draw of AC current in an older home and the money it would cost to run the unit. I did have to get an electrician to put in a new AC outlet since none of my outlets are grounded and are all two-prong. This AC unit has a three-prong plug. I haven't blown the circuit using the AC; and, while I got this unit in the middle of my electric billing cycle, my bill was only $20 more compared to my bill last year. The average outdoor temperature of this last bill was one degree higher compared to a year ago. Also, with the whole COVID-19 pandemic, I've been home all day instead of away at work 50 hours plus each week. I'm cooking all my meals at home now compared to hardly any last year. So I'm using a lot more power versus last year.

    It seems my whole-house air conditioner runs much less since I've gotten the portable unit. Perhaps keeping the attic cooler has resulted in the entire house remaining cooler.

    This portable air conditioner is very efficient. It doesn't take it long to lower the temperature in my room. One thing to note is that once it's on, it's always running. When it's not pushing out cold air, the fan remains on. It does help to keep the air circulating. I've seen some reviews that complained this unit was too loud. While that's subjective, I don't agree with it. It's louder than my central air vent but not louder than a box, turbo or Dyson fan. I've included a video on the unit pushing out cold air which is a little bit louder than when it's just running the fan. I've also attached photos of my room to give a sense of the size of the room as well as the size of the unit.

    I am so happy with my purchase. It is so pleasant in my room now compared to the sweltering heat last year. Sometimes, as I'm climbing the stairs, the air gets cooler instead of hotter which is a much welcomed change. I also sleep so much better now that I'm not drenched in sweat.

    I highly recommend this air conditioner especially for those with similar conditions.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Quality Control Issues... Same internal damage to 3 units
    By Ryan on June 9, 2016
    I’ve owned several portable air conditioners from LG, Idylis, and Whynter. With the summer heat approaching, I decided it was time to replacing my failing LG portable A/C. After reading all the positive reviews on other model Honeywell portable air conditioners I figured I would give them a shot. From here on out, my experience with Honeywell was a nightmare.

    The unit arrived within 2 days thanks to amazon prime and FedEx. Unboxing was quite simple and only required cutting 2 straps and removing the top portion of the box. The only protection for the portable air conditioner is a foam insert on the top and bottom. After inspecting the unit I noticed 2 of the prongs on the plug were severely bent, and the ground prong was missing. I called amazon customer service about the issue, and they were fantastic. A replacement was sent out the same day.

    The next day UPS delivered the replacement, and picked up the damaged air conditioner. This unit arrived with damage to the outer box. One strap was missing and there were several holes throughout the box. After unboxing, I noticed the panel on the bottom right had popped out. This is a removable panel with a cheap mesh filter. After I removed the panel, I could see major damage to the fins on the evaporator coils. This damage could not have happened during shipping since all the parts on the inside do not move at all. I called amazon again, and they agreed to send another replacement.

    UPS once again delivered the replacement, and picked up the damaged air conditioner. This time the box had very little damage. YAY! After unboxing, I noticed there was no window adapter or mesh filters installed. Out of curiosity, I removed the bottom right panel and the fins on the evaporator coils were smashed on this unit as well. At this point I was extremely frustrated because it is not easy to repackage this portable air conditioner. I called Honeywell about the issue, and they said they do not manufacturer these portable air conditioners. I was told to call JMATEK/Airtek. They were very friendly and asked for photos of the damage. I sent the photos as requested, and within 4 hours I received a “response” asking for a picture of the setup of the unit including the exhaust hose and where it leads to among several other things. WHAT?!?! This had nothing to do with my original email.

    Once again I called amazon, but this time I asked to speak to a supervisor. I explained the situation and it was almost like she did not care. I told the supervisor I could provide pictures of the damage if needed. Her response was no and chuckled. She agreed to send out one more replacement. I asked if this time they could ship it as fragile, and her response was no but she would pass the shipping issues on to the appropriate department.

    UPS delivered the last replacement, and picked up the 3rd damaged air conditioner. This box had no damage, but was shipped with only 1 strap instead of 2. The straps hold to bottom and top of the box together. This time everything was included…. The remote, window adapter, exhaust hose, and drain hose. This time the window adapter was cracked. I removed the bottom right panel for what seemed like the millionth time just to check the inside… Guess what, the fins on the evaporator coils were smashed on this one as well. I called JMATEK back and explained that on 3 of the units there was the same damage present to the fins. This information was passed onto a supervisor there. I was told this is not normal, and there should be no damage at all to the fins. I figured at this point I should at least try to use the air conditioner, and see what happens. The air conditioner was meant to cool a bedroom roughly 200 sq ft.

    Setup was quite easy, and only took a few minutes. This was probably the best window kit (minus the damage) out of all the portable air conditioners I have owned. Some compa
