Honeywell HL12CESWK Portable Air Conditioner:

Honeywell HL12CESWK Contempo Portable AC is a good option for medium size rooms.

AC units are slightly more expensive than others, but are very quick at cooling and include a powerful dehumidifier — beneficial if you live in a higher humidity area! (in a valley or near water)

Comparable dehumidifiers can cost $150-250.

This gives the Honeywell Contempo air conditioners a higher price value.

If you’re looking for a new portable air conditioner that’s durable and for a medium size room, I think the Honeywell Contempo is one of the best choices.
