Re: Can a landlord forbid portable split AC?

Well, you certainly can find split portable ACs .. for example: https://www.galaxus.ch/en/s2/product...2?tagIds=40-62

Not sure about placement - if you have the external unit on your balcony, it wouldn't be visible ...
Yes, agreed, if she has a split portable unit then she can still place it out on the balcony, but as for mounting it externally on the side of a building in any way that required drilling into the external wall, this generally wouldn't be allowed.

The problem however with a split portable unit is that the fan noise will be outside. This means it could be heard by the neighbours either when they are out on their balcony or when they have their window open while sleeping. This could be really annoying if the OP's balcony is not really private and separated from the next closest person.

A regular portable AC unit keep s the noise inside and this is the one that the vast majority of people use, for example these https://www.delonghi.com/en-int/prod...r-conditioners
