    Default Portable air conditioners

    Anyone use those portable air conditioners,are they less noisy than a window unit?I was wanting something a lot quieter than a window unit for my HT,do the portable ones still have to have a exhaust out the window? thanks

    You need a split system. Sometimes called ductless.

    Compressor sits outside, and then the heat exchange unit is connected inside.

    Lots of companies make them, for example:

    http://www.amazon.com/Klimaire-Effic...883090&sr=1-18

    And I've never seen a portable one be quieter than a good window unit. At least the compressor is outside - with a portable the compressor is inside.

    You can get a small one for < $1000

    Thanks,the only reason I want something different than a window unit is because of the noise level!

    A split AC unit should be really quiet, I worked around a Sanyo AC and I was assumed it was so quiet.
