Hello AT, I recently discovered a portable Air conditioner + Heater unit which seems to be a genius idea. But I can hardly find any review about most brands of portable AC+heater units. Why aren't people buying them? Are they too new? Why do New Yorkers use window unit ACs and separate portable heaters for extra supplemental heat? I have small studio apartment (200-250aq), so it's kinda funky looking to have a 20"W X 18D" X 31H portable AC+heater, but it sounds so promising. Shall I go ahead and purchase? Thanks, Kelee (Pic: Amcor Portable Air Conditioner/Heater from the editor)
