Money well spent
I purchased this for my bedroom, as I only have a wall unit, and the bedroom didn't get cool enough for restful sleep at night. You know, tossing and turning, waking up so hot it was difficult to get back to sleep. Since I installed this it's been wonderful! I have it a few feet from the bed, blowing at it, and it has helped tremendously with sleep quality. Yes, it does have a noise, but it's just like a fan, and I personally never notice the compressor shutting off and on. The three complaints I'd have are: the light. The display is digital, and extremely bright! I don't think there's anyway it needs to be that bright. In a light room it's fine, but at night it is like having a nightlight by you. So I had to cover it with a piece of foil hanging down, which mutes the light, but now the remote won't work, must be the sensor is covered up. So that's frustrating. Also, the directions said to use the plastic pegs to secure the window insert in the width that you need it. Well for some reason mine only came with one peg. It's also not long enough, and I do wish that we'd be given the option to order an accessory kit in the beginning (with an extra length of window adapter, more pegs, etc.). I am using tape now, but it's just a temporary fix. Lastly, the hose needed to be secured both to a connector that attaches to the window adapter, and to a connector that attaches to the back of the AC unit. Well, the window one was easy, in fact super easy. However, the one that attaches to the back of the machine was EXTREMELY difficult!! I struggled, and fought with it for I bet a half-hour! Was crazy. Finally had to use my fingernail to pull a bit of the hose out, where it was impeding movement (keeping the adapter from twisting on). Still don't think I have it 100%, but it's good enough now. So if Honeywell could make that easier that would be wonderful! I do think the unit itself is wonderful though, and having said all that, I would definitely buy it again! I am hoping/expecting that it will be a lasting purchase, with the Honeywell name!
