              The first thing to say is that this ventless portable air conditioner really does the job, and considering that the unit is designed to cool down room of 450 to 550 square feet, the result is remarkable.

              The 8 or 10 degrees lower in temperature that the Honeywell 12000 Btu Portable Air Conditioner gives you when comparing with other existent in the market, is really significant.

              The noise aspect of any AC, especially the portables, is almost as important as the cooling effect, and this product perform decently in this area. Of course the noise is directly related to the level of intensity in which the fan is setup. The Ac gives the ability to use the fan in 3 different settings, each one with different levels of noise, but we would say that the noise that this air conditioner releases is not huge.

              Aesthetically we think that the product is elegant, and for many people the item will contribute to the attractiveness of their living space.

              Technologically, the item displays a dual filter feature that helps to avoid the excess of dust, allowing the AC to have a longer lifespan. Beyond that the safety when using the item is guaranteed by the thermal overload protection that is present in its design.

                    Talking about noise, we have observe that if you think that this is a powerful 14,000 BTU unit, the item is definitely in the quietest side of these kinds of AC.

                    One of the drawbacks of this ventless air conditioner is that unfortunately when the control remote is in use, the manual settings cannot be utilized. Nevertheless for some people this is not an issue, because they prefer have the setting buttons directly in the unit itself and not use the remote control.

                    The design of the control panel is efficient and cleaver. For example you can set the timer in intervals of 30 minutes (which is shorter than many other air conditioners) for shut down, and also for start up.

                    It is also fair to say that the seller response to any issue that can be arise, is great and the service of the people in charge deserves special mention.

                    Also it is important to understand that like most of the ACs, the excess of humidity will provoke some amount of water leakage if used profusely.

                          • Full installation set
                          • Digital and remote control

                          Starting with the installation, we would say that we cannot complain because the setup is really easy. The cooling performance is great and the unit can cool a 500 square room efficiently, depending on external humidity and temperature. Controls are digitally displayed and understandable, being all the functions including the 24 hours programmable timer, easy to manage.

                          The design is really creative, and displays the emphasis that the producers have put in the aesthetic side of the job. The black front with its silver borders combines greatly with the also silver control panel, giving it a decorative feature that we don’t observe in many portable air conditioners. The control panel works intelligently making the light go off after some moments that the unit has been started, avoiding the annoying illumination when sleeping.

                          The filter is easy to access and remove making its cleaning simple to execute.

                                • Remote control

                                Some say that this unit is too noisy, but we don’t agree with that. Of course there are differences between the noise level of a window AC and a portable air conditioner, nevertheless this item is not invasive regarding the sound of its motor. The cooling performance is good and can cool down the area that the producer intended to temper when the item was designed (from 150 to 250 square ft).

                                The aesthetical designed seems to us that was done with the intention to be as less invasive as it could and it is easy to observe that the air conditioner doesn’t pretend to be a decorative piece, but to be basically neutral. Also the dehumidifier feature is a plus that is added to its functionality, and is one that not all the AC units come with.

                                The system works in a vertical motion way to improve the air flow, creating a temperature stable environment. Portability is given by the 4 caster wheels that comes attached to the AC and the reasonable weigh of it. The controls are programmable in a simple way, and come in a neat LED digital setting that also includes the sleep mode and the 24 hours timer.

                                SereneLife 10,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner


                                • BTU: 10,000

                                • Air flow: 290 m3/hr
                                • Dimensions: 17.4 x 13.4 x 32.1 in.
                                • Weight: 62.8 lbs.


                                      • Easy portability
                                      • Remote control
                                      • Built-in dehumidifier
                                      • Automatic swing mode

                                      The unit is efficient regarding the cooling aspect, but if you want a quieter portable AC, this item is not really for you. Some people have gone to the extreme of comparing it with having a plane in the room.

                                      Other characteristic that is important to know is that this product moves air from a side vent, and not from the top like the most of the products do. Portability could be rated like medium, because no matter the wheels and the finger grips, at its 75 lbs. of weight, it is still not the easiest unit to move around.

                                      The package comes with all the necessary items for the installation, and the setup is simple, but is odd that it doesn't come with a tube for the dehumidifier, and you have to buy it separately.

                                      Other issue is the consumption of energy that in comparison with a window AC is too high, and of course when you buy devices like this, the purpose is to use it and not be stressed by the possibility to receive a too inflated electricity bill.

                                      All in all, we think that the Serene Life Portable Air Conditioner is for people that momentary have budget restrictions.

It is not easy to find these types of AC in this price range that performs so well. Even though we could not say that product is quiet, is less noisy that many of similar units.

                                            The drainage system is a little difficult to use, but the good news is that if you use the item moderately, it is not necessary to drain it too often.

                                            Summarizing, beyond having a clean design the product works correctly and it is a really well built unit with low noise level that is  a lot better that many portable ACs.

                                                  Even though the fan is not that quiet, we don't agree with some of the comments that said that the unit was too noisy, and we were pleasantly surprised when we observed that the noise level is very decent.

                                                  Some people have also complained about the excessive size of the machine, but to be realistic it is useful to realize that there is no AC that shows full compactness.

The unit also comes with a dehumidifier that can drain 107 pints per day, and auto swing louvers. We must point out that this air conditioner has to be vented with the hose that the producer includes in the package.

                                                        In short , we think that this portable air conditioner, without be an extraordinary product, is a unit that makes the job , and considering the price and the functionality that this portable items have, the product is a good option for people that don’t like the lack of versatility of the window air conditioner units.
