In this review, we’re going to be taking a look at the Honeywell MO08CESWK Portable Air Conditioner, and what it has to offer!

Honeywell MO08CESWK Portable Air Conditioner Review

When it comes to the design of this portable air conditioner, it’s sleek and simple. There is nothing particularly distinct or unique about it, or the aesthetic that it uses, but the design is easy to understand and you won’t have any problems figuring out what the different buttons do, or how to set up the air conditioner.

Moving this portable air conditioner around, however, can be a little more challenging. The reason for this is because it weighs around forty-three-pounds.

That’s quite a bit, and picking this portable air conditioner up and moving it from one end of your home to another is a fairly daunting task. But, there are handles and wheels, so, while it certainly isn’t easy to move this air conditioner around, it isn’t too difficult.

Every air conditioner has something known as a “Maximum Area Coverage”. What a Maximum Area Coverage is, is a certain amount of space that the air conditioner is able to cool. For this portable air conditioner, the Maximum Area Coverage is 350 square-feet.

This means that you can set this portable air conditioner up in a space of that size, and that space will be cooled. But, if you set this portable air conditioner up in a space that is larger than that, only 350 square-feet of that space will be cooled.

In order for you to use this portable air conditioner, you need to set it up near a window. Honeywell provides the window kit, and there is an instruction manual that walks you through the process, making it quite easy. Once you’ve set up the window kit, you can turn the portable air conditioner on and air will begin flowing through it.

When air is flowing through this portable air conditioner, it passes through a filter. This filter is very useful, because it removes the dust and allergens that are in the air that is flowing through the portable air conditioner.

So, if there’s dust or pollen, or something along those lines, floating in the air, it will be removed, ensuring that the cool air is nice and clean.

Honeywell has included a dehumidifier feature, as well, and if you live in a humid environment, then this is a very useful feature. The dehumidifier takes all of the moisture that’s in the air, and it removes that moisture.

This moisture can then be disposed of in one of two ways. You can use the Self-Evaporation system, which allows all of that moisture to simply evaporate. Alternatively, you can connect the portable air conditioner to a water line, using a hose, so that all of that moisture flows somewhere else, rather than being evaporated.

Connecting the portable air conditioner to a water line is definitely the ideal choice, if you live in an area where there’s a lot of humidity.

What’s nice about the dehumidifier, beyond the fact that it clears up humidity, is the fact that it’s extremely powerful. In just twenty-four-hours, it can remove a total of 44-pints of moisture from your air. That is a lot of moisture, in a very short period of time.

On the top of this portable air conditioner, there is a control panel. Using this control panel, you are able to change the temperature, set the timer so that the air conditioner runs for a specific period of time, adjust the speed of the air conditioner, and turn the portable air conditioner on and off. Every single setting and feature is on this control panel.

However, there’s no need for you to rely exclusively on that particular control panel. Honeywell has included a very nice remote control that offers those exact same settings.

If you’re on the couch or in another part of the room where the portable air conditioner is set up, you can adjust those settings and access those features.

All of those features are fantastic, and they lead to a convenient and pleasant air conditioning experience. But, what is, arguably, one of the best features, is the fact that this is a very quiet portable air conditioner.

It makes very little noise, and this allows you to run it for long periods of time, without dealing with any loud noises or annoyances.
