This review is from: Honeywell MF08CESWW 8,000 Cooling Capacity (BTU) Portable Air Conditioner
Pros: - Efficient, as far as portable units go. Most 8,000 BTU units have higher amperage / electric cost
- Remote Control
- Great at cooling down the room. (I Have central air, but our office room typically stays 10-15 degrees warmer than the rest of the house, making it uncomfortable. Running the Portable unit 5-10 minutes will cool it down again
- Self-evaporating unit, won't need to empty a water tank if you're just using A/C mode. (Will be necessary in de-humidification mode)
Cons: - Window kit is pretty flimsy, three pieces of thin plastic that can screw together, poorly insulated and will likely leave small gaps to the outside if used.
- While its nice to have a remote, note that this unit can ONLY be controlled that way: Other than the power button, there are no controls on the device itself. There is an indentation in the unit housing to store the remote, but if you have small kids that like to run off with any remote control they find that may present a problem.
- Fairly noisy (comparable to a loud fan, just white noise, fairly consistent while running)
Other Thoughts: - Less efficient than a window unit, but that's the case for all portable units
- Couldn't use the included window kit because it was not tall enough to fill the gap in my (horizontal sliding) window. Ended up making my own out of wood & insulation tape, which seals much better.
- While it does need an exhaust for the hot air to the outside (all A/C units do), the portable unit requires a much smaller opening in the window than a comparable window unit would use.
All in all: I like the unit, and would buy again.
