I would of already if the home owners association allowed window units. I've been considering portable's but closing other vent's throughout the less needing room's where I live has given me good AC up here.

Yes it would do better, I worry about their power consumption but I've heard them compared to a ceiling fan on high at that. IDK though.

I compared a portable AC unit's power consumption to a ceiling fan on high, Not advocating getting a ceiling fan whatsoever.

-And I also said IDK if it's true just something I heard.

It's a little over the top, but we are in the process of designing the home we plan to build next spring and I plan to install mini-split a/c unit for my office where all my gear sits. They are more expensive, but last much longer, are very quiet, and the higher end ones are very efficient.

Not getting one. I have had one (8000 BTU) for quite some time, just for the computer room. Supplements the main HVAC nicely.

Nope.

I dream of summer's heat while its freezing in winter.

I only have a small ceiling fan for the really hot days of July.
