Can i plug my portable ac into an extension cord?

If you use a normal extension cord to plug in your AC unit, it can start a fire because it can't handle as much electricity as permanent wiring can. Is this true? Try a fan with a properly-rated extension cord, or buy a freestanding AC that you can place near the outlet of your choice.
