Honeywell Contempo Portable Air Conditioner Review.
The Honeywell Contempo portable air conditioner is a top seller online.
It includes a high-end dehumidifier + full functional remote control.
Compared to similar units, it has good purchase value — it’s moderately priced and has good buyer reviews. (does have some mixed reviews though)
It’s available in 3 cooling sizes:
- HL10CESWB: 10,000 BTU (up to 350 sq. ft.)
- HL12CESWB: 12,000 BTU (up to 450 sq. ft.)
- HL14CESWB: 14,000 BTU (up to 700 sq. ft.)
All models have the same features — the difference is only their cooling power (determined by the room 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.

The Honeywell 14,000 BTU AC is also quiet when operating.

Using the remote control you can choose mode or select your desired temperature. The Honeywell portable air conditioner will adjust speed to achieve your selected temp.

Overall, the Honeywell HL14CESWB is perfect for cooling large areas quickly.
