Honeywell’s MM14CCS is a powerful portable A/C unit that is more than capable of cooling down rooms on the larger end of the spectrum. It accomplishes this without being too big or distracting, and offers a good blend of extra features to go along with its (mostly) quiet operation.
- No included dual hose
- No heating capability
The MM14CCS isn’t exactly the most feature-laden portable air conditioner for its price, but it does what it’s supposed to in a mostly seamless way, with just enough convenience to make things go a bit smoother.
Coming in at 14,000 BTU’s, the MM14CCS is one of the top choices when it comes to cooling a larger room. The unit runs effortlessly, offering a significant boost of cold air for extended periods of time without fail.
The MM14CCS is fairly smaller than other units in its class, making it not only easy to move around on its four casters, but much less imposing or distracting when being used.
If looks matter to you, you’ll find the MM14CCS to be more appealing than many of the other units available out there. The unit’s sleek, black body is versatile with most any decor, and gives off a sort of unassumingly modern aesthetic. You may forget it’s there half the time -- in a good way.
The blue LCD backlit screen gives off just enough light when you are using the controls, switching off on its own after any brief period of inactivity. The onboard controls are effortless to use.
We’re probably a few years away from Bluetooth technology in portable AC’s being the norm, or at least a way to control one with your phone. In the meantime, the remote control fills that space just fine, allowing you to control the unit’s operation from anywhere in the room.
If you plan on using the unit at night, or wish for it to stay on in your absence for a bit, the automatic shutoff timer will come in handy, allowing programmable times from 1 to 24 hours.
The MM14CCS is a very capable dehumidifier in its own right, ridding the air of up to 95 pints every 24 hours.
The MM14CCS is a great unit, but there are a few things holding it back.
The MM14CCS operates at a very livable sound level of 53 decibels, but the sounds it makes when switching from on to off are bit abrupt. Not a big deal, though.
The MM14CCS is perfectly capable of accommodating a dual hose setup, but Honeywell saw it fit to only include one hose. Making it a dual-hose unit will set you back a little more money, which is a little strange considering the unit’s price.
Room size: 550 square feet
BTU rating: 14,000

Overall, the MM14CCS is a top choice for cooling a large room. While some models under the MM14CCS’s price range offer a few extra features and capabilities, this unit does its job really well.
Buy this unit if you want a sleek, modern portable air conditioner for a large living room or play room.
