The AC unit sits on casters in the room and there is a water pipe and intake pipe that attaches to a flat piece that goes in the window (remove the screen). Depending on the window size, you may need to cut a few boards/pieces of plastic for it to fit. My dad and my grandma both have them.

My worries with the portable air conditioners is their output. Looks like they're best suited to a large room, not an entire house. But if they're efficient enough, two or three of them may be cheaper than a/c.
