    Portable air conditioner
    I'm looking for a portable air conditioner to cool a 360 sq foot garage which is on the north side of the house. There are no windows except in the garage door. I also need a unit that is reliable and quiet. I have searched the Internet and know more about these units than I ever wanted and the only one that meets my needs is only 9000 BTU. I don't need the garage cold, just about 75-80 degrees. I live in Georgia. What are my chances that it would keep my garage cool? Anyone recommend a unit? I cannot install a window or wall unit due to my homeowner's association requirements.

    Thanks in advance!

    Even the portable units have to be vented, they may roll in to your room but nromally will have a hose that has to be vented. ( at least all of the ones I have seen.

    I did see one "unit" before that was not vented, but it was fairly worthless.

    Thanks! I can vent the unit, I just can't have a window unit installed.
