If you live in any kind of small home, then you don’t need something that is giant and going to cause you to pay an incredibly high bill with heating and cooling.
What you really need to do is try getting a small window AC unit.
With a window AC device you don’t have to pay any heating, ventilation plus A/C contractors to come to your home because the machines are pretty easy to set up on your own. In the last home that I lived in, I tried to go with just a portable AC unit, but it wasn’t strong enough at all. The warm seasons get so hot where I live that not having at least a strong window AC device is entirely brutal… After a few afternoons of trying the portable AC device without much luck, I called my friend that had worked at a local heating, ventilation plus A/C business for years just to see what he suggested . He told me flat out, if I wanted to find a cheap window AC device, I could just check a local dump to see what was laying around. Apparently a lot of contractors get rid of perfectly working heating, ventilation plus A/C parts just because they have nothing to do with them or any place to store them. I thought it was deranged when he told me to go to the dump for an air conditioner, but after a few hours of looking around I found multiple window AC units that looked almost brand new! I have had this used window AC device for a few years now and I am entirely glad that I tried it out despite my concerns. The portable AC device hasn’t come out of my closet since I discovered this particular window unit.
