It sounds as if warm outside air is being drawn back into the room when the unit is not actively cooling. Portable units depend on room air to carry the heat outside, & therefore will not work properly if the room is too airtight. Provide a makeup air passage by leaving the door slightly open, & see if this helps. Use a room thermometer to see if your desired temperature is being reached. Note that if the wind is strong & coming from the wrong direction, it may not be possible to prevent warm air drawback.

the air takes the path of least resistance.What you need is a balance.there should be some dampers in the round pipe of each heat run.restrict the ones going to the livingroom about half way....this will force more air to your bedroom.

SOURCE: unbalanced cooling or heating
You need to balance the system. It's a matter of adjusting the dampers or registers so that you have a little less air flow near the T-stat and more to the other end of the house. Likely you have a return vent near the T-stat. That return draws air to it and likewise the T-stat. If you are getting a lot of air out of the registers on that end of the house damper them to force more air to the other end of the house. Do not close them entirely though. You may have to play with it a little to get it right. I hope this helps. Please remember to rate Fixya rate me.

You need to verify if the problem is the unit or the breaker. To do this, you will need to measure the current it is pulling from the power source.
If the unit is pulling too much current, then the unit is the problem. If the unit is pulling as much or less than its rated current draw, then the circuit breaker is worn out.
The units WILL pull more power when hot outside. It should not trip a breaker unless something is wrong with either the unit or the breaker.
A current draw test will tell you for sure.
If it's not the breaker, then it's probably low refigerant causing the issue.

SOURCE: a/c doesn't get cold anymore
usually means your as unit has lost its charge and can not effectivly cool your home anymore..advise to call a certified ac tech.to find , repair and charge your units.( but in some cases a "starter relay that sits on top of the ac compressor has gone bad..this holds true to fridges also
