We haven’t finished (or even started for that matter) our upstairs renovation so until that’s done we aren’t putting in any permanent air con to replace our useless ducted that came with our house. Portable air conditioners have saved me last summer and now this one. We actually bought our downstairs one from Aldi and it cools my open plan kitchen/dining and lounge room really effectively.

A good quality split system A.C. runs at around 19db of sound pressure making them very quiet when set to the low noise setting. The portables I've encountered are much louder, so loud that many find them intolerable.
