The Honeywell Contempo portable air conditioner is a top seller online.

HL14CESWK14,000 BTU550 – 700 sq. ft.

All models have the same features — the only difference is the AC motor size.

For this review I’ll focus on the Honeywell HL14CESWB portable air conditioner.

It comes with 3 modes of operation.

cooling (air conditioning), fan, and dehumidifier

Some mixed reviews online, but overall a top seller on Amazon — very popular last year.

Buyers say it’s easy to install and great for large rooms (or homes with open layouts) — for the smaller size air conditioners, many buyers set them up as bedroom ac units.
