I am meant to be in Sydney next weekend. Hope it doesnt get that hot.
Portable aircon? Sorry dont know much about them but they would be better than nothing.

Hum that's tricky. Portable acs are good but expensive to purchase.
When I was renting and our place had no ac we had a pedastool fan. When it was really hot we would place a wet (but wringed out) tea towel over the front part - it really cooled the air down.
I'm not sure that is exactly what you wanted though?

Tricky. Most are very expensive to run.
We have evaporative cooling, but it can't be removed.
Very cheap to run.
Can you talk to the landlord about installing a split system on the wall. You'll just pay running costs.

I know this is an old thread but i would really appreciate opinions on portable air con units please!
We are renters and looking to move in the new year but need to stay cool! So rather than settle for a less than perfect house/location just because it has suitable air con already installed I am looking into alternative options, such as getting a couple of portable cooling air con units...but i know nothing about them!
Please help!!! TIA!

If you do get a portable ac get a refrigerated one with a window kit, the evaporative ones aren't that great.
If your on a budget check out gumtree

Thanks! Are they really noisy? Do they get quieter the more expensive they are? Do you think they are actually worth it? Sorry. It's just a lot of money to spend if they turn out to be dud. Haha
