Looking for a small air conditioner was a big issue for me, simply because there are a lot of models and all of them, are similar, so choosing the best one was hard. Luckily, I was able to get two of the best, thanks to detailed research. The Whynter 14,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner was my first choice, simply because it is cheap, has an interesting design and it is practical.
The best about it
A great thermostat may sound irrelevant, but it is very important for me. This product has fully programmable thermostat (61°F – 89°F) and it can be programmed for 24 hours. In addition, programming a thermostat is simple and it takes just a few minutes, via the remote control. Although a remote controller looked complicated at first, after a few minutes I realized how simple it is.
As aforementioned, this is a small portable air conditioner. The dimensions are 5.5 x 19 x 16 inches which makes it one of the smallest products of this type you can get. Moving it across your apartment is very simple and you can do it by yourself. At least I can move it in a room that needs it at that particular moment. The weight is 63 pounds, which is another great thing about this portable air conditioner. In fact, you can carry it across a room, if you like doing that.
Cooling is the main feature of the small air conditioners and this unit is based on the latest technology so it is very effective. In fact, it can cool down an area of 500 square feet, which makes it more powerful than similar models. I did a lot of research, as I mentioned above and I determined that this is the best data, among all air conditioning units from this price range. Even better, the air is cool and pleasant, so you will fully enjoy in the coolness of your home. At least I am enjoying when the outdoor temperatures are high.
The smallest air conditioner also comes with great features. It can be used as air conditioner, a dehumidifier and a fan. An air conditioner is usually on with the dehumidifier, but you can use the dehumidifier as a separate feature. On the other side, the fact offers 4 settings and it allows to the air to circulate across a room. I use this feature the most, due to the fact I have a small child. If you have tit as well, I recommended to use fan instead of air conditioner.
Although, this is the smallest portable air conditioner I could find, it is practical and effective in cooling down my room. But the biggest drawback is the manual and the complexity of the user interface system. Simply said, it is a bit complicated and the manual won’t help you, because it is even more complicated. I needed a lot of time in order to realize all the features this small room air conditioner has and how to use it. However, this may be the unique issue for me, so I don’t believe that all owners will have the same problem.
This small room portable air conditioner can cool down a large area without a problem, but it takes time. I don’t like this particularly, but after reading lot, I realized that this is the safest option, so the manufacturer made this unit so it cools down a room slowly in order to avoid huge temperature variations. Maybe it is healthy, but it is a bit annoying when you have to wait for a long time in order your room to cool down. On the other side, the fan is great and it can cool down a room in a matter of minutes, of course if you set it on the 4th setting (the fastest).
Due to the fact I own this product, I can tell you what I like the most and what I don’t about it.
- Very small and practical.
- Great remote controller.
- Offers three different features for cooling down an apartment.
- Easy to move.
- Looks modern and high-tech.
- Looks well-made.
- Can actually cool down an area of 500 square feet.
- Complicated to use.
- The manual is complicated as well.
- It cannot cool down a room quickly.
A great addition about this product is the fact it comes with carbon filter. This addition is favorite to me, simply because I realize the danger of carbon, when it is in the air. Thanks to this addition, the air in your room will be perfectly clean at all times. When you need to clean it, all you need to do is to remove it and vacuum the residue with a vacuum cleaner. It takes literally one minute to remove, clean and place back the carbon filter. This is a useful addition that is unique as well, due to the fact most air conditioning units from this price range don’t have this addition.
Auto restart function is something I like as well. It will restart the unit and return it to the settings you have made. This is more than needed if power outage is a common issue in your area.
I personally believe that this unit is one of the best on the market. I bought it 2 months ago and I am still satisfied with it. It isn’t the fastest working air conditioner, but it offers great features and it looks way better than air conditioning units. The thing I like the most is the fact it is elegant and it actually made my home look better. A great addition is the fact you can move it in a room you want to cool down.
Simply, but Great Honeywell Portable Air Conditioner
I believed that buying a small air conditioner is a waste of money, simply because they are not functional. But after some digging I found not one, but two excellent small air conditioners that are surprisingly powerful and cost effective. The other product I purchased is the Honeywell MN10CESWW Portable Air Conditioner. This is one of small air conditioners that looked the best, while I was looking at it on the internet.
The first thing I can say about this product is that it is great. I mean, it looks nice, it comes with amazing features and it is elegant. On the other side, this small portable air conditioner is affordable.
The things I like the most
Powerful air flow is the feature I like the most, simply because it can cool down the entire room in a matter of minutes. I use it all the time and I am more than pleased with it. At the same time, this feature doesn’t use a lot of energy, so this air conditioner is energy efficient. An interesting addition is the fact it is very quiet. My older unit was so loud that when it was on, the whole house could hear that annoying sound. On the other side, this unit cannot be heard even when you stand beside it.
All components are included in the package, so I was able to start using this unit as soon I got it. Unpacking and using it for the first time is very simple and it requires just a few minutes. On the other side, moving across the room is simple and easy, due to the fact this is a small room air conditioner. The dimensions and the weight are not the smallest, but they are lower than most products of this type have to offer.
The display on this unit isn’t the most important component, I know that, but the truth is that it looks amazing and it makes the entire product look more expensive than it actually is. I like the display because it offers great visibility and it looks modern. Sadly, it has small dimensions, so it would be a lot better if it was bigger.
Remote control is more than needed nowadays. This model comes with great unit that is very easy to use. On the other side, you can preprogram the entire air conditioner via the remote controller, so it is a great way to choose the feature you want. At first, it may look complicated to use, because this unit has a lot of features, but after some time, you will realize that it is the simplest remote controller ever.
One of the most important facts you should know about this product is that it comes with a 5 year warranty. I actually didn’t pay attention to this factor when I bought the unit. However, after reading the manual and instructions, I realized about this great addition. You should know that this is the longest warranty, air conditioners have to offer. Most of them have 1 or 2 year warranty, but this model is simply better.
I can tell you about things I like the most and those I dislike about this air conditioner.
- One of the smallest air conditioner units on the market.
- Offers high quality.
- Looks elegant.
- 3 different settings for air flow system.
- Easy to use.
- Can cool down an area up to 350 square feet.
- Makes no noise.
- It is available only in three colors.
- The design may be elegant and modern, but at the same time it is too simple.
- The manual is complicated.
Evaporation system is the most imports addition this air conditioner has to offer. This means that it will remove the excess moisture from the air, so the air in your home will be clean. An interesting fact is that this is the smallest portable air conditioner with this feature. In addition, it is very simple to use is, due to the fact this is automatic feature.
Controls are very simple to use and they are fast. In fact, after 3 seconds every feature will start thanks to the quick feather touch system. Keep in mind that this is the only small room portable air conditioner with this feature. Beside it makes the entire product more practical, it makes it more expensive as well and it is the best, smallest addition I like.
A venting kit is included in the package. This is another addition you should know about. The best part is the installation. I actually believed that I must call a professional to do this, because I thought that it is complicated. However, when I looked the manual and read the instructions, I realized that I can do it by myself. I literally needed 10 minutes to complete the procedure. That’s why I can tell you that this is definitely something you can do by yourself.
Most products of this type, I had a chance to look are available in just one color. Although, this isn’t the most important factor, having the possibility to choose between more colors is a great addition. This product is available in white, silver and black colors, which makes it a great choice, if you want to have something that is different than your friends have.
The bottom line
The Honeywell MN10CESWW Portable Air Conditioner is an excellent choice, simply because it is very affordable and it comes with the latest features. You can choose the color of this unit and you can install it by yourself, which is a great way to save money. The fact it is one of the best-looking air conditioners on the market makes it even better. This model is very good and practical. It is energy efficient as well and it comes with amazing feather touch system that makes using this unit a real pleasure at all times.
