Quoted from KornFreak28:
So you got a portable AC unit? How much did you pay for it? This portable AC unit creates moisture? Thanks
Air conditioners remove moisture from the air they condition. That moisture has to go somewhere. Mine will either store it in a reservoir you dump when it gets full or it can vent the moisture outside. Regardless of what others have said, I have a hard time believing an indoor unit is quieter than a comparable window unit. It just doesn't make sense. With a window unit the noisy parts are outside the window. With an indoor unit everything is in the room making noise.
I got mine from Costco for ~$400. It also functions as a heater and dehumidifier. If I were to do it all over again and a ~$100 window unit wasn't an option, I'd buy a mini-split and install it myself. I believe most of them come pre-charged with refrigerant. Even if you move in a couple years it still adds value to the home.
