I've got a Danby portable type dual hose unit which works very well
for my office. The single hose units are really no good for getting a
room cool as they continually pull in outside air. It's pretty quiet,
a lot quieter than the cheaper no-name unit it replaced. 12000BTU -
it does really need it's own 15A/120V circuit because of the size.
