For you AC pros out there, I bought the 12,000 BTU window style Danby a couple weeks ago on sale and plan on setting it up in the master. I plan on setting up a fan to blow air out into the living room when it gets really hot during the day. Think any ol fan will do?

is there a cheap, easy and not too ghetto looking way to install a portable AC into a normal "casement" window? (ie: to use something like that @ $249 Haier 8,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner)

I struggle to maintain my master br at the right temperature during the night, even with a Nest :( And there doesn't seem to be an easy multi sensor solution available :(

If I could at least have the Nest run the AC for let's say 20 mins per hour no matter what temp it is at the Nest location...

As casement windows are too big for the window kits you have the choice of the following options.

1. (Super ghetto), tape cling wrap over everything the window kit doesn't cover to block air from coming in.
2. (ghetto) Large sheet of cardboard, make a cutout into the shape of your casement window and open a hole for venting, tape ontop of bug screen.
3. (camoflauged ghetto) Do the same as above, paint/add bristol board which matches the room/window colour.
4. (Nice ghetto) Get a thin clear acryllic board, cut to size and cut an opening for the outdoor vent.
5. (Not ghetto) Custom make the above piece to use magnetic/hook mounts or even into a new frame for a unobtructed easy to remove vent area.

Are there any good ones where you don't have to install the hose?

Nope, unfortunately there are no ACs that can violate the laws of thermodynamics yet, maybe in 2016 though...

Yes, buy the ones where it install right onto windows where it vents directly outside without the need for any hose for venting.

So? Ever consider that other places have different temperatures, or that some people plan ahead?

These portable AC units are what we use in some of our small data centers when performing maintenance on the chilling units.

Not a permanent thing, but good for temporary relief.

Also good for a cottage or remote corner of the house that doesn't get much from the central unit.

bit of a thread jack, but are any of these good?

I've got one tiny bedroom in my house where ventilation sucks. Can't heat it or cool it.
