Honeywell Compact Portable AC Review.
** Update: read our newer Honeywell Portable AC Review 2019
Honeywell’s compact AC includes a new dehumidifier function + remote control.
Compared to similar AC units, this one looks like the best value purchase — it’s very affordable and has excellent buyer reviews.
It’s able to cool rooms up to 350 sq. ft. (most medium size bedrooms).
Just as powerful as a traditional window AC, the Honeywell compact has cooling of 8,000 ~ 10,000 BTU. And if you’re in a humid area, it doubles as a dehumidifier, removing 44 pints of daily moisture.

Honeywell Portable AC Review:
Customers who bought the Honeywell compact portable air conditioner have raved about the quality of the AC system and how efficiently it has cooled their space.
Many online review note how quick and easy the unit is to install. Takes only 10 minutes with the instructions from the users manual.
Customers also noted that while some sound is to be expected from an AC, the Honeywell model is quieter than competitors. They praise its compact size and streamlined design – it won’t take up too much space in a mid size room.
The only suggestion for improvement is that there be more exhaust hose options and adapters.
However, if the unit is set up correctly and you have regular windows in your room (i.e no oddly designed windows), the exhaust hose is all you need.
Most customers have given this unit a 5 star rating and no wonder with it’s many features and efficient design!
