If you buy the right unit they are a great investment. The newer units have advanced evaporation technology that eliminates the use of a tank and utilizes a exhaust tube. If one does the proper research the proper portable AC will be a great addition to any small grow room.
By portable you mean indoor right?
If so, one thing people dont realize is they still build up condensation and need to be emptied every day or so.

For outside temps no higher than 85F. id say your ok but keep the receipt.
There are commercial port. AC units which will work but also use ALOT of power.
If your alternative is not to grow i would try but it all depends on your tempts.
If you got a two hose port AC and did a sealed room with C02 you could grow easily but its not cheap.

Your grow can handle higher temps with higher than norm. co2,normal is 300-500 IIRC and 1500PPM is a great target if you can monitor it well.At that high PPM i hear 85F. is just fine too.
Thanks Guys. Temps are in the low 80's curently and thats with the door open and exaughst running all the time. Once the door is closed, Mylar is up and exaughst fan is shut off (To release co2) temps will be in the 90's, So I really want to try one of the portable AC units. Since I'm going to add some CO2, Whats the ideal temp then?

If I use that portable A/C to run VERY COLD air over my light (Which is currently being cooled by room temp air) will that decrease the amount of heat that it is throwing out? (I need about 5-7 degrees cooler.)
Also, is it safe to run staright air conditioned air over a 1000w light? Any help is appreciated!
