Answer: When compared to a split or central air conditioner, portable air conditioner is not as efficient. But due to their cheap cost and mobility, they do provide a cheaper alternative to split and central systems. As the system is used in a less well insulated scenario, portable ac does not provide as much energy efficiency as a split or central air conditioner would.
